Hello student

As a self-employed individual with your own cafe, you'll need to provide documents that establish your business and work experience. Here are some documents you can prepare for your CAT application:


1. *Business Registration Documents*:

- Partnership Deed (already have)

- Business PAN Card (already have)

- FSSAI License (already have, though it's in your partner's name)

2. *Proof of Business Ownership*:

- Affidavit or declaration stating your ownership and role in the cafe

- Business registration certificate (if you have one)

3. *Proof of Work Experience*:

- A letter or certificate from your partner or co-owner confirming your work experience and role in the cafe

- A detailed resume highlighting your entrepreneurial journey and responsibilities

4. *Financial Documents*:

- Income Tax Returns (ITRs) for the last 2-3 years (if applicable)

- Balance Sheets and Profit & Loss statements for your cafe (if audited)

5. *Rental Agreement*:

- Already have, but ensure it's updated and signed


Additional tips:


- Ensure all documents are scanned and uploaded in the required format (usually PDF or JPEG)

- Keep your documents organized and easily accessible for the application process

- Be prepared to provide additional information or clarification if requested by the admission authorities


Remember to check the specific requirements for each B-school you're applying to, as they may vary. Good luck with your CAT application!

Hello aspirant,
The CAT exam syllabus is not officially prescribed, but it generally includes topics from the following sections:

1. Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension (VARC)
2. Data interpretation and logical reasoning
3. Quantitative ability

  • Arithmetic

  • Algebra

  • Geometry and Mensuration

  • Number System

  • Modern Math

It seems unlikely that you would be able to get admission in the BTech CS branch at BIT Sindri or Mesra with a CML rank of 2058 and category rank of 433.

Key points:

1. The search results indicate that a CML (Common Merit List) rank of 2058 is quite low for admission to premier engineering colleges like BIT Sindri or NIT Mesra.

2. The cutoff ranks for BTech CS branch at these institutes are usually much higher, often in the range of 1000-2000 for the general category.

3. With a category rank of 433, you may have a better chance of getting admission in the reserved category quota, but the competition is still quite high.

4. The search results do not provide specific cutoff details for BIT Sindri or NIT Mesra, but the general trend suggests your current ranks may not be sufficient for the CS branch in these institutes.

My advice would be to:

1. Check the latest cutoff ranks and admission criteria on the official websites of BIT Sindri and NIT Mesra.

2. Explore other options like state-level engineering colleges or NITs where your current ranks may have a better chance of securing admission.

3. Consider improving your performance in the next attempt of the entrance exam to increase your chances of getting into your desired BTech program.
