I want to prepare for CAT in home so how can I prepare for it? And what kind of preparation is needed in this CAT exam?
See CAT is an exam which can easily be cracked at home. It has three sections Quantitative aptitude, logical reasoning and data interpretation, verbal reasoning and reading comprehension. All these sections are the same which you have read in your 10th. start preparing from quantitative as its pure maths and one should focus in it as it is considered tough, then go for LRDI along with verbal get help from youtube and read newspaper. refer arun sharma books for good basics.
I have 78/78/73 in 10/12/Grad and with 81 months of experience, what Percentile in CAT should I aim to get a call from IIM-A/B/C/K/L/I ?
Since you do not have an outstanding Academics I'll recommend you to aim high percentile in CAT to get into IIM BLACKI. A percentile above 95 is a safe score to get into IIM Lucknow, Kozikode, And Indore. However for IIM A/B/C I'll recommend you to get a percentile around 98 for ease in conversion. Also, Since you have work ex of 81 months you can also go for Fellowship program offered by IIM.
I have average marks in 10th 12th But if i score 95+ percentile in cat. am i eligible for admission?
