Speaking about her CAT preparation Saumya Vishnoi said, "My preparation for CAT 2020has been sufficient enough if not perfect. I don't think anybody can be 100 percent ready ever but I tried to give my best while preparing. When the media release about the change in exam pattern came I was not very happy with it because I have been attempting Mocks since June and have been adjusting myself according to the 3 hour pattern and was improving as well. But in 2 months I tried to adjust myself with the 2 hour pattern. It would have been better if they would have released the news about pattern change a little bit earlier."
About the strategy that she has in mind, Saumya added, The strategy to deal with the pattern change was just to attempt more and more mocks based on the new pattern and see where I am lacking. To increase the speed was the tough and important task."
Aiming to score a good percentile, Saumya added, " Everyone aims for the best and therefore the goal is obviously 100 percentile but since I have a different profile and most of the colleges are moving towards diversity a few points downside would also work for me."

Is an Integrated Msc in Data Science considered as engineering in CAT exam?
Integrated M.Sc degree is not considered as B.Tech because it has its own value. A candidate pursuing dual degree is eligible to appear for CAT provided he/she must be in the final year of the course or must have completed the course. In your case the percentage of marks scored in Bachelor's degree is considered to determine your eligibility for CAT for whichever duration the Bachelor's degree and Masters Degree is divided. If you belong to general category you need to score minimum 50% aggregate marks in bachelor's degree, if you belong to SC/ST/PWD you need to score minimum 45% aggregate marks. While filling the CAT application fill the marks scored in Bachelors Degree in Education details and in Masters Degree field you need to select yes if you are in final year of the Integrated M.Sc course and provide the details of the course.
hello i have completed my diploma as well as 12th and my diploma marks are much higher than my 12th marks and i have got admission in my ug on the basis of diploma marks so which marks should i fill in cat examination, 12th or diploma???
The minimum Education qualification required to appear for CAT entrance examination is Bachelor's Degree in any discipline from a recognised board. The candidates belonging to general category must score minimum 50% aggregate marks in the qualifying examination and for SC/ST/PWD category candidates it is minimum 45% aggregate marks. Candidates who are studying in the final year of the qualifying examination are also eligible to apply provisionally.
Diploma is equivalent to 10+2 so you can fill the marks scored in Diploma as you have scored highest in Diploma than in class 12th as there is weightage for academic performance. You need to be in the final year of UG course or must have completed the course to appear for CAT. In case if you are still studying in B.Tech (2nd or 3rd year) then you are not eligible to apply for CAT. If you are in the final year of B.Tech then you can apply for CAT and the marks scored in B.Tech uptil the semesters for which results are announced are considered to determine the minimum percentage criteria.
