which is tough exam gate or cat?

niharika cherry 20th Jan, 2020

hello aspirant, we cannot compare the toughness of the exams because both are the exams are taken by different stream people, the B,tech people with little hardwork can take the CAT exam but the BBA people cannot take the GATE exam, each exam has its own toughness.

thank you.
