So, despite its noble intentions, most students do not gain much from a traditional CAT coaching.
One major reason why traditional CAT coaching fails to deliver on its promise is that it is outdated. While life around us has changed immensely over the past 20 odd years (you wouldn’t even remember those days when you used to go to a post-office to send a hand-written letter to a dear friend, would you?), traditional CAT coaching hasn’t. The following visual should amplify the fact that it is time for change!
|Period||1978-1995||1991-2010||2011 and beyond|
|Nature of CAT||Simple CAT. Less competition||Pencil-paper CAT. Increase in competition||CAT goes online and may soon be adaptive. Intense competition|
|CAT preparation||Correspondence Course (Leader: IMS)||Traditional CAT coaching (Leader: TIME)||ADAPTIVE Prep for CAT (Leader: MBAGuru)|
|Mode & method of delivery||Material via Post||Material + Teaching in classroom (mainly offline) – Standard delivery to every student||As per your needs – Material + Teaching (offline + online)|
|Impact on chances of success||Every aspirant took it and by early 1990’s, it no longer gave an edge||Everyone took it and over the past few years, it no longer increases your chances||MAXIMUM Impact!|
