which entrance exam score in IIM college consider other than CAT

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 13th Nov, 2019
CAT is conducted by the IIMs in rotational method. In a way the conventional way to get into an IIM is through CAT because CAT is the brainchild of the IIMs. Having said that, IIMs accept GMAT score but only for 1 year MBA program and that is for Working Executives and the prpgramme is called Post Graduate Program for Executives. Apart from that no other score ks considered for admission to IIMs.

where is books of CAT is available

Mayank Chowdhary 12th Nov, 2019

Use word power made easy by Norman Lewis, Abhijit Guha Quantitative Aptitude and Arun Sharma book. Go for high school English grammar and composition by Wren and Martin. For verbal reasoning, go with Pearson by Nishit Sinha. Use Quantum CAT by Sarvesh VERMA too. If possible try to have TIME or CAREER LAUNCHER books too, they will help you a lot. And where these books are available toh they are there in the market, you can search them in the stationary book shops near you. And if not available, then they are available on amazon too from where you can order. Thank-you.
