Taking CAT till last year was poosible, dodging the rules of the game. But this year round, they had asked for a BOnfide certi from ur coll supporting the fact that u r final year stdnt / Degree certi for passouts. So, better not bend the rules.
Also, to asses ur ALL-India performance / standing, u can join the test series of any coaching intitute.
Ideal time for joining: 8 - 10 months b4 CAT. But serious preps in the last 4 months.
hey i am a 2nd year engineerin stud in bit mesra. i am damn sure about doin mba just after my engg. can i take the cat this year(though i wouldnt be eligible) just to evaluate myself??? and when do u think is the right time to join coachin classes??
