From mid Feb y ou hav e more than enough time for y our CAT prep; just ensure that y ou put in 3 hours ev ery day . Y our background (arts/science/commerce) does not play a role in y our cat prep. It is y our aptitude, attitude and self discipline that is more important.

Take Care, Munira.

That approx imation is a v ery v ery approx imate number that y ou can see without any calculation. So here y ou can see that 557 /900 is close to 600 / 900 so 2/3.

Re: How to Prepare for Data Interpretation for CA T by Sank e t S - Friday, 3 April 2009, 08:23 PM De ar Munira m am , I could not find way to contact you, the re fore , ask ing the que ry this way. Hope you dont m ind. I found the following article on ork ut stating that quie t le ss we ighttage is give n to C AT in the se le ction proce ss for IIM-A. If this is the case , am i wasting m y tim e in trying with m y tooth n nail to m ak e it into IIM-A?

CAT not the way to IIM-A


IIM-A is the dre am de stination of e ve ry MBA aspirant in India BUT its re ally dishe arte ning to say that e ve n crack ing the toughe st e ntrance e x am -C AT cannot assure you a call for e ve n GD/PI. According to this,final we ightage give n to C AT score is only 27.27%.re st 72.72% has alre ady be e n de cide d by ur 10th and 12th score s(talk ing abt ge ne ral cate gory). In sim ple words suppose Mr. A crack e d C AT 08 with 100%ile ove rall and 99+%ile in all 3 se ctions,has a work -e x of 10 yrs. in finance , with 90% in graduation,89% in 10th and 79% in 12th..THEN he wud not hav got a call this yr. EVEN AT THIS PR O FILE !!! using the form ula give n by IIM-A C .S score wud b 16 which is le ss than cut-off C .S. score ... So m uch we ightage has be e n give n to PAST acade m ic pe rform ance that m ore than 2 lak h of the pe ople who fille d form s could hav ne ve r qualifie d for C AT e ve n if the y toppe d it!
