The Crucial Stage 2

The CAT Exam score index is only one component of the final CAT score. What you think you might lack in the percentile can be made up in Stage 2.  After selecting the colleges of your choice carefully, it is time for you to work hard for the next stage.

All colleges have different selection criteria. While most colleges conduct a Group discussion followed by a Personal Interview(PI), many MBA institutions hold a Writing Ability Test along with the PI. A very good score in GD/WAT and PI can improve your final score and ensure your selection in your prefered college.
