Screwed up CAT 2012! What now?
The CAT 2012 show has been running for over 2 weeks now. Although the official CAT’12 results will be out only on January 9th 2013, from what we can see of the analysis and reviews of the questions, the ringside view is definitely mixed.
This year’s CAT has bitten a number of test-takers in the rear – if you are one of them, the burning question in your mind would be, what now?
You could go back to your daily grind and wait for CAT 2013 to come along.
Or you could explore other options.
Now would be a good time to revisit your goals – if you have 2+ years of work experience under your belt and your end objective is to pursue a management course, why not consider taking the GMAT?
The GMAT is a standardized, computer-based test that is used by 1500+ B-schools all over the world – including the IIMs, XLRI and ISB Hyderabad – as an admission criterion for their MBA programs. The GMAT in its online version has been around since 1997 and Indian citizens make up its third-largest testing group after the US and the Chinese.
What’s great about the GMAT?
The number of GMAT test-takers per year is only around 30,000 – less competition, more opportunities!
Your GMAT score is valid for 5 years – so you can choose to take the GMAT now and apply to MBA programs any time in the next 5 years.
You can take the GMAT up to 5 times in the same year. So you don’t lose a year to improve your score!
The GMAT follows a set pattern; moreover, a huge amount of official prep materials and practice tests are available, making it a very ‘learnable’ test!
Definitely interesting, huh? 🙂
