Dear Student, 

You would have gone through the pattern of CAT 2015 that was communicated to you earlier by us. You can count on our support, as always, in your efforts to crack the CAT 2015. We would like to assure you that that your preparation so far has been in-line with the test areas of the CAT and hence there is no reason for you to worry. It is the test-taking approach that needs to be changed to tackle the CAT2015 pattern and we are absolutely positive that AIMCATs will help you in this. 

We are glad to inform that all the AIMCATs to be conducted from now on will be as per the pattern announced for CAT 2015. We are working to bring the AIMCATs in the new pattern at the earliest to you. 

The schedule for the remaining AIMCATs will be sent to you in a couple of days. The scoring process for AIMCATs will be similar to that of CAT 15. A detailed note on this will be sent to you along with the AIMCAT schedule. 

We will also make SAMCATs and the Online Sectional Tests (Advanced) available to you as per the new pattern. The details on this will be sent to you at the earliest. 

Stay tuned for further updates from us.

Page and Plant are running on a track AB of length 10 metres. They start running simultaneously from the ends A and B respectively. The moment they reach either of the ends, they turn around and continue running. Page and Plant run with constant speeds of 2m/s and 5m/s respectively. How far from A (in metres) are they, when they meet for the 23rd time?

1). Nonetheless, Tocqueville was only one of the first of a long line of thinkers to worry whether such rough equality could survive in the face of a growing factory system that threatened to create divisions between industrial workers and a new business elite.

2)."The government of democracy brings the nation of political rights to the level of the humblest citizens. He wrote ," Just as the dissemination of wealth brings the notion of property within the reach of all the members of the community".

3). Tocqueville was far too shrewd an observer to be uncritical about the US, but his verdict was fundamentally positive.

4). No visitor to the US left a more enduring record of his travels and observations than the French writer and political theorist Alexis de Tocqueville, whose 'Democracy in America', first published in 1835, remains one of the most trenchant and insightful analyses of American social and political practises.

6 years - 5 CATs, 4 XATs, 2 FMS, 3 IIFTs, 3 GMATs, 2 JMETs and over 500 Mocks, 1 failed start up  and 

Finally got 760 in GMAT and joining Tepper school of Business - Carnegie Mellon University.

I loved the journey, in fact I loved it too much for my liking. Met remarkable person and saw stories which will inspire the dead from the grave to rise up and write CAT, XAT, GMAT etc.

Guys, never give up because it is not worth it, just not worth it. Just one score and admit and rest can be history.

Pain of hardwork is temporary but glory of achievement is permanent.

Let me not rant about my boring story. 

Lowest points:

1) CAT 2010 - got 17.XX %tile in verbal and same year I got 99.XX%tile in verbal in XAT.

2) CAT 2010 and CAT 2011 got 69.XX%tile and 64.XX%. Missed XAT cut off by 5%tile in one section. 

Met some remarkable people and cherished their dedication and got inspired by them

@r11gupta   , @the_hate , @Samurai-X , @shashank3012 , @Poluka_Praveen   , @Roger.Federer  , @seba_catrpillar  , @seshendra  , @ThEbmr  , @sarcastix  , @TnT  @Medhavin  , @prem_ravi ,@ravi.tejapalla  , @GIXX3R , @techgodajay ,  

Each one of them have a story and each story is enough to pick you up from slumber of mediocrity, so if you have time do go through their struggle stories. Very privileged to have studied with them. 

One regret !!

1) Identify what can work for you and adapt. I should have taken GMAT long time because that is the way to go for 4+ years of experience.

2) Go where your experience is valued but not taken as a burden.

3) Don't limit your options. You don't know what can work for you and what doesn't. 

4) US schools are not that expensive if you plan it well and target the schools which suit you. 

I have 9 years of work experience and I am going for 2 year program with a scholarship

A huge thanks for @pagalguy  and @grondmaster   for entrusting with Mod role. Pagalguy.com has been an addiction to me for last 6 years and I loved every bit of it. 

Thanks to all the Puys for your support and help. And awesome PG meets in Bangalore. Those meets were always close to my heart. 

Flying off in exactly 5 days to start another rollar-coaster ride and I have waited for this for loooooooooooong time patiently but not anymore. 

So puys and pirls, never give up. There is light at the end of the tunnel, just one more bent in the tunnel and you will be there. Don't give up ever !!  

Signing off !

The main reason the pattern was changed was to give less emphasis on Quant's. But with qa and di in 2 separate sections I dunno how this will serve the purpose. Views?

Still Struggling 
Bee2011
Rajesh Balasubramanian, 2IIM @Bee2011 541

@ashmaitsingh : I do not think the IIMs are trying to make this exam particularly unfriendly to Engineers. Last year, 95% of entrants into IIMA were engineers. The IIMs are not going to change track overnight. Till 2012, the CAT used to have 3 sections. This two-section CAT is only two years old. DI does not sit inside Quant that well, LR is very different from the other parts in VA. So, it probably makes sense to remove these and create a separate section. Everything need not be viewed as friendly/unfriendly to engineers. I think this year also 90% + entrants will be engineers. This has got nothing to do with CAT. If India creates 10,000 good undergraduates a year, 9000+ of them happen to be engineers. Truth is that we do not have enough great colleges for other streams. And at 18,  students overwhelmingly prefer engineering as a career choice.

Ashmait Bagga @ashmaitsingh 78

i never said that the IIMs want to make the xam unfriendly for engineers. what I can infer is that they want to make it a level playing field and remove the perceived advantage that engineers had over others. Lr does involve a bit of quant. not all sets but at least some. also I was unaware about the pattern CAT has had in previous years. again I would like to emphasize that the intent cud be to get a jack of all trades person as that is one thing they wud want in a manager.  also a major reason for 90% of the applicants to be engineers is the disenchantment that they feel when they reach their 2nd or 3rd year engineering course and the greener grass they see in the commerce/ management fields. Commerce stream students have other professional courses like CA, CS Etc in which a large no. enroll themselves and so they are out of the race for MBA.
