Dear Aspirants

We understand that you are anxious and that the decision of pursuing an MBA might completely change your life, but we request you to please stay calm. The shortlist will most likely be released in the third week of March and the weightage will be announced close to that. There were students who had filled in wrong CAT IDs for which notices were released (the latest correction being received till 3 March 2015) so that no student is deprived of their chance of applying to FMS. This has caused a major delay in putting together the shortlist. We respect your time, efforts and choices, and wish that you understand that FMS' process is different than the IIMs'. Immediately after the interviews are done, the results are declared and that takes a lot of effort. A little patience is all we ask for and we're here to help you get through. Wish you all the very best for your endeavors. Hope you had a great Holi!

(OFFICIAL) test series to choose for cat 2015

this thread pertains to choosing of test series to prepare for the upcoming cat 2015 !!

Latest Posts   

If you are asking specifically Test Series and not classes, I would say IMS and TestFunda are really good.

IMS:

Very close to CAT
I have not taken the IMS Simcats, but I have seen the papers from my friends. They have always been quite similar to the actual CAT. Also, I believe they have decent number of mocks for practice.

TestFunda: 

Similar to CAT, Flexible

They were also quite good and quite similar to CAT level. The best part about TF is that you get the solutions, the moment you give the mocks. It will make a huge difference. You can start analyzing your mocks as soon as you finish your paper. This is because there is no window as such for TestFunda where you have to take the mock. There is only a fixed date on which the mock becomes available and after that you can take it whenever you like.

Also the sectional tests from TF were quite good. This is also one of the cheapest Test series available.

Career Launcher:

Difficulty level was good, except LRDI

I had joined CL when I was preparing for CAT 2013. The LR that CL gives in its mocks is very easy is what I realized. During CAT 2013, my LR set was tough. This happened with me in CAT 2014 too, but this time I was better prepared with TestFunda and certain LR sets from TIME as well. I thought CL's Verbal was quite good, even its Quant, but not its LRDI

TIME:

Difficulty level above CAT in general, miles above CAT 2014. Usually declare their mock results quite late.

I went for the AIMCAT enchanced package last year. It was quite expensive at INR 7200 I thought. Initial few papers were okay. They say the difficulty level rises slowly as you give the AIMCATS, somewhere in the middle it reaches the peak of its difficulty and later on in reduces. But I somehow don't agree with this. May be its the psychological thing, but by the time you finish the supposedly toughest AIMCATs, you are so low on confidence and scared of AIMCATs, that you somehow doing worse in subsequent AIMCATs. May be this is just me, but I am giving you my opinion.

Also, TIME Verbal is way too weird. They ask the longest passages you will ever see, of course, and the questions?? Well..the questions are sometimes passages in themselves. I have taken CAT for 4 years, I have never seen such long passages or questions and their options EVER. 

Even in general, TIME tries to modify and make the questions way too tough. I know they say that the idea behind this is to prepare you for the worst, but I never bought this logic. I think confidence is also important, the most important thing probably.

Add to the above the delay in declaring their results. For ex: You will write the exam on a Sunday. Depending on which end of the window you have booked the slot, it will often happen that the results are declared after a week. By that time mostly, you would have forgotten about the mock you gave, what exactly you were thinking while answering certain questions and thus, your analysis won't be effective.

Also, a lot of people argue that AIMCATs will give a truer picture of where you stand considering that it is the most popular Test Series (about 20K takers), but I dont think it matters too much. If you are aiming high, only the top 1000 are your competitors. CL has close to 7-8K takers (decent), IMS has close to 5-6k takers(quite good again). Test Funda may be 4k max, (but still worth it)

In a nutshell my sugestion is avoid AIMCATs, I would suggest this order: IMS > TestFunda > BullsEye > CL > TIME

If you want to go for 2, for for the first two. Also, apart from these you will get free Mocks from BullsEye too which are actually pretty good. You will get them free on the basis of securing 90+ percentile in any of the other Test Series.

I hope this helps. All the best!!

I do not want to indulge in mud slinging/ comparing colleges etc., but the fact of the matter is that IMT-G's ranking has decreased tremendously( if not the numbers, then the general notion about the college) among the students.

So can any of the present students/ alums give us a clearer picture regarding what has caused this trend?

P.S - IMT G is my only hope! I need someone to help me understand how and which college to choose.

TIA
