There are some questions you should ask yourself (or your CAT coaching institute’s counsellors!) before you make a decision:
How will YOU gain more than 1000s of others who will be there, doing exactly the same things that you are doing?
How will YOU beat the 1000s of others who will be there slogging just as hard in their CAT exam preparation classes as you?
How will YOU beat someone who starts ahead of you in say Quant (Maths), or English and then improves just as much as you? He/she will still be ahead of you when the coaching period ends. Right?
Then, how will YOUR chances of success improve and be maximum for you?
You get the gist of it, right?
If you join any CAT coaching blindly, say just because it gives big ads or because your friends have joined it, it might be the most illogical decision ever. And you might be taking that decision just so that you don’t feel left out and behind.
Without a coaching, you may be worse off. But with a coaching, how do you ensure that you will be relatively better off than others?
Your chances of success depend on how much of an impact even the best coaching classes for CAT can make on YOU, given your starting point, given your strengths and weaknesses, given your need for attention in specific sections and topics!
But NO TRADITIONAL CAT COACHING does that!
Traditional coaching just works the same way on everyone – making a similar improvement for everyone.
So, if you start say at 60 in Quant (Maths) and I start at 40, then at the end of the coaching if I get to 60, chances are you will be at 80. I will still be behind you, and you will still be ahead of me.
I improved a little, but my chances of success did not improve L
I paid money, I slogged for 100s of hours, I invested months of my life – for NOTHING!
This is what happens to a vast majority of students at traditional CAT coaching institutes. This is how they struggle despite good faculty members, good material, good competition and 1000s and 1000s of hours of hard-work.
Is there a way around it? Yes! It’s ADAPTIVE Preparation for CAT. That’s the magical potion that works on YOU and for you. It has transformed 1000s of students who started their journey at average levels into rockstars who made it to Top B-Schools in India.
If it’s a decision that’s important for your career, you must ask the right questions and research your answers, before you decide!
