Hello, I will be starting with my CAT 2020 prep soon. Having gone through the classroom programme of TIME last year and fetching a decent percentile, I will be buying an online package this year. The package must include the best topicwise teaching videos and round the clock doubt solving by faculty. Can you please suggest me which coaching insitute's package will serve me the best?


Please take note that I will buy the test series of IMS and TIME separately, I just want the teaching videos to prep

Hey All, I gave CAT for the first time in 2019 and I am very unsure if I should take up some college that I am able to convert this year or should I appear for CAT again. Would you be able to give some suggestions if I post the details here or is it a wrong place?

Hi everyone, I gave CAT 2019 and my scores are OA 96.25 (VARC/DILR/QA: 92.78/94.57/95.14) and I'm a GEF. Though I gave it last year I didn't prepare much. I didn't ever cover Arun Sharma QA all chapters LOD 1 level. And now I'm confused how to prepare, from where to start, whole nine yards. Can anyone please help me?

Hi guys

I am looking for some ios app where I can get practice problems preferably in question by question manner. Suggestions are welcome.


Hi, I scored just above 99 percentile this time in CAT with roughly 75/21/64/160 scaled scores in va/lrdi/quant/overall. My best calls are MDI and IIFT delhi(just above 99 percentile in iift too), gd/wat/pi went amazingly in both institutes and i am more or less confident of converting both(i say this in the most non-arrogant way possible, please do not misunderstand), which college should I choose? I'm in a huge dilemma because both colleges are amazing. My profile is 9/9/9. Which college should i go for? 


Also, I gave the exam with just a month of preparation going through past years question papers, should i write CAT next year? GEM Fresher(tier 4 engineering college)

Hello everyone, I gave CAT 2019 and my scores are OA: 98.75 (88.41, 84.56,99.97). I blundered in DILR and have fair idea how to improve. But in VARC i don't know how to improve and where to start. Can anyone help please me?

Hi Guys!

Was looking for the IDs of people who took mocks from TIME and IMS and will be joining a B-School this year itself. I know a post regarding this was made earlier but I didn't want to bother people individually at this point of time(what with all the lockdown and exam result situation). If in case your ID hasn't already been taken and you are willing to share, please comment and maybe help the other CAT 2020 aspirants as well. Thank you!


Hey guys! Thanks for this group firstly! Preparing for CAT'20 here - scored 99.32 in my first attempt at CAT (99/97/97). I've taken some advice from a couple of people here already (thanks guys) but would like to know if there is something more that I should know/keep in mind. My Achilles heel is dilr and I'm not very good at logical reasoning and puzzles in general (I'm not bad at it either but I'd say I'm nowhere near the level of 99+ percentile in cat for dilr either). I've noticed most of the guys here have high percentiles in dilr and I assume most of you must've naturally been good at it - however if there's anyone who wasn't good at it in general and got better or anyone else who can advice on going about improving this section, I'd be grateful for your perspective. For quant, I'm solely working on going through last years mocks to have enough knowledge about the types of questions and will start on techniques to improve speed down the lane. I scored 99.21 in varc this time but definitely feel that I can do better. Messed up the VA part seriously this time around. Any suggestions for last mile prep for varc in general? Thanks in advance. Appreciate you guys helping us out.

I am planning on posting a set everyday for practice wherein the question will be posted here and the solution will be posted in the video form on my youtube channel named "Shankar Bhayanakar" on the next day.

Fair Warning: I am doing this right now with the intent on following through all the way upto CAT but if in between I get busy otherwise, I may not able to upload questions and videos and thus would warn people against using this series as their primary source of study. 

Question for 5th April, 2020 - Level Basic

Hi All, in the time of uncertainty brought about by COVID-19, does anyone of you feel that CAT 2020 may get delayed or even worse, might not be conducted at all ?

I just want to know how you all are coping with the immense uncertainty at this moment ..

Hello everyone, I decided to take the advice of @fTheWorld and retake CAT 2020. My profile is 9/9/9 GEM and my CAT 2019 scaled scores were 75/21/64/160 in va/lrdi/quant/overall. I had not prepared last time except attempting past year CAT papers. I'm pretty clueless how to start. Should I join some online coaching? What mocks should i get and how many? How do I maximize my scores in VARC and QA and how do i improve my LRDI? I come from a poor background so I cannot buy too much study material and I can only spend whatever is left after paying my rent when i get a job, which is tough with the corona situation..and I don't have anyone I can take advice from so any help would be appreciated...

Hello Everyone, 

I will be giving the CAT for the 1st time this year. Here is some info about my profile: 

General, Male, Non-Engineer (Architect, B.Arch. 2017, Nagpur University)

Work Experience : 2.5 years (Design Studio 20-25 employees, not corporate Worked on one and managed another project in my tenure)

Academics : 10th 93.4%, 12th 73.33%, B.Arch. CGPA 6.8


After working in my field and gaining some decent experience, I have realized that the job prospects in monetary terms are below average and hence I resigned last month to start preparing for CAT. 


With due regards to all those who have aced CAT I have two questions:

1. My profile, as mentioned above, I would like to have it evaluated and would like to know how I can get into the top B-schools and target percentiles as well.


2. I have started with Simple Equations from TIME study material. Despite understanding the concept via video lectures and theory, I was unable to solve around 30-40% of the exercise problems. 

Now one way to tackle this would be to look at the solutions of those that I couldn't get and move on. The problem with this is that it doesn't register and I tend to forget the method the next time I look at the same or a similar problem and my error log becomes too long. 

Another method I adopted was to literally break my head and not give up on the problem but even if I could get it, it would take a long time and sometimes I would have to sleep over it so that it clicks me the next day. If this goes on I don't think I will be able to complete the syllabus by June-July in order to start practicing mocks later. 


Please help me regarding these two issues, the second one being more crucial as tackling it would either make or break my dream of cracking the CAT.

Can anyone please help me with this question


 

Directions: The distance between two points A and B is 3500 m. Two policemen posted at points A and B got a news that a thief is located at point C which is located between A and B. The point C is at 500 m from the point A. Both policemen start at same time to catch the thief. When the policemen P1 approaches towards the thief, the thief sees him and starts running in opposite direction. Again, when he sees policemen P2 is also approaching towards him, he again changes his direction and now runs in opposite direction. He does so till the distance between policemen P1 and policemen P2 becomes less than 500 m and stop at that point when the distance between policemen P1 and P2 becomes 500 m to surrender. The thief had a distant vision of 200 m (or can see distant object clearly upto 200 m). The ratio of speed of policemen P1 and thief is 5 : 6 and the ratio of speed of policemen P1 and policemen P2 is 5 : 4. The speed of policemen P2 is 8 m/s

Question:  Find which policemen will catch the thief earlier and the total time taken to catch him. 

P1, 159 sec

 P2, 120 sec

 P1, 102.33 sec 

P2, 130.66 sec

 Both will catch him at same time
