Lets start discussing

Why GMAT and CAT can be targeted together

Normal Admission Test or CAT and Graduate Management Aptitude Test or GMAT is the most generally acknowledged tests for induction into MBA/PGDM programs offered by the board organizations of India.

Led by the Indian Institute of Management, CAT is a national dimension placement test, scores of which are acknowledged by more than 1500 b-schools in India. GMAT, then again is substantial for admission to more than 2100 administration organizations over the world. The leading body, Graduate Management Admission Council, permits every competitor 8 endeavors altogether.

A competitor gets eight endeavors in his/her life time predominantly in light of the fact that GMAT is an exceptionally extreme test with similarly confused stamping plan. Investigate the contrast among CAT and GMAT

IIMs acknowledge GMAT for Executive administration programs and if there should arise an occurrence of outside class understudies. In any case, numerous MBA organizations (non-IIMs) acknowledge CAT and GMAT both for admission to their PGP programs.

In spite of the fact that, the schedule of CAT and GMAT are comparative in certain viewpoints, the trouble level, test example and checking plan of the two makes it troublesome for any contender to get ready for both of the two and show up in both the tests. For both CAT and GMAT, committed arrangement is important. The greatest contrast among CAT and GMAT prospectus is the area – Analytical Writing Assessment. Feline has no such abstract paper.

In this article, we will talk about the schedule of CAT and GMAT alongside their test designs.

CAT syllabus includes topics from Quantitative, Logical and Verbal Reasoning, under the sections – Quantitative Aptitude (QA), Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DILR), and Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension (VARC).

GMAT syllabus also includes Quantitative, Logical and Verbal Reasoning but under sections – Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Integrated Reasoning. GMAT has one more section which is absent in CAT and that is – Analytical Writing Assessment. There is no descriptive question in CAT.

Let’s take a look at the topics included in CAT and GMAT.

OUR Methodology


Ability-Based Model – ADAPTIVE COACHING


Students can choose their own hours and work directly with a coach who will develop an individualized study plan. The tutoring plan will be periodically updated through regular assessments.

This is a adaptive model. It adapts itself according to student caliber then towards perfection through toughness.

We are not tutors in our GMAT preparation. Whether in our online live or classroom coaching classes but a student and a mentor enters into a Tutoring partnership, where they both discuss the need to prepare for the exam and prepare a roadmap to excel.

This Unique GMAT and CAT Pedagogy develops itself and completely adaptive to student caliber and preparation level. Student eventually get a customized approach thus this MBA study model guarantee at least 70-100 + points increase for re-takers and 700+ score for first timers.

We have scientific method of assessing students and their study habits

Step 1

Self assessment comes as a first step for your MBA preparation. As we believe that in case students are self-evaluating, they can all score good marks in their exams.

We don’t give GMAT/CAT diagnostic test to our students as a first step but we ask our student to do self assessment on the basis of their knowledge on EQ and IQ. This step is done with the help of a Questionnaire, physiological testing and one on one interaction with MBA experts.

Personal road map for MBA is prepared at this stage with different topics and kind of attention needed.


Litmus Test – After this self assessment we give a Litmus test to student in order to understand their Subject wise understanding so that a proper GMAT, CAT session planner can be prepared. We give codes to each student in order to keep a track of their attention areas and in the basis of these codes, study modules gets decided. All codes go for common and uncommon modules according to their gap areas.

An assessment report will be prepared and feedback will be given to student on continuous basis.

Step 3 :

Levels – 750+ Level 1

700+ level 2

680+ level 3

650+ level 4

600+ level 5

Those in 700+ and 750+ levels directly enter into advance tests and rigorous practice.

Classes and Practice:-

Practice starts: Every student receives practice sets of question according to their level of understanding .We prepare practice questions targeting each student for proper evaluation and guaranteed results.

Sectional Test: Once we find student has reached the benchmark only then we give sectional test of various levels randomly in order to validate our preparation and student’s success. In case we find drastic differences of marks in this random test – we ask a student to go for GMAT/CAT Litmus test to find the micro gap areas.

Step 4

The tentative structure which was made in the starting , entirely got a makeover. At this level rigiours training starts. The steps are:

  • Be conceptually strong: Practice your concepts with good number of questions and from Beginners to medium then difficult level.
  • Accuracy: Once student reached to the stage where all questions were correct, practice questions gets increased twice. Once it is set that now concepts and application to questions are correct, student reach a third stage and that is time efficiency.
  • Efficiency: Now race with time starts. This stage is equally challenging.


Final Step

Once a student reaches this stage, then full length testing starts – we start with four difficulty level test and then randomly changes different difficulty level s, with continuous reviews and makeup classes.

After this Manthan – No matter student was at what level in the starting, we take out the achiever from a student.

We can prove with our well proven and time tested MBA Manthan mythology that weaknesses are just a illusion and anything is achievable.

In this process we take the student to all high and lows, most easy to most difficult test and randomly experiencing them all these test makes them MBA looks easy. Once a student’s goes through this process they become so well versed with things and that they become more mentally calm and mature thus their ability to deal with pressure ultimately increases.
