The purpose of CAT coaching is to maximize your chances of success. But have you ever thought about how can a CAT Coaching help you improve so that you maximize your chances of success?
For that you need to understand how an offline classroom or online coaching for CAT works.
And for that let’s see what a traditional coaching comprises of. What would you mainly expect from a traditional CAT coaching?
Classes – Online or Offline
Tests for practice and competition
Now, you must consider 2 things:
Almost all reputed CAT coaching institutes are above a certain level and quite comparable on these components. So, how would you choose which one is good for you?
At any CAT coaching, say X, you will get the same study material as 1000s of others studying there have access to; you will get exactly the same classes that 1000s of students studying there attend; you will be taught by the same kind of faculty (almost all of whom are quite good by the way) as everyone else is learning from; and you will practice the same tests as everyone else, and have the same environment as everyone else!
You will surely improve through this practice and some regularity and direction. But won’t (most) others improve almost equally?
Then, tell me, how will YOUR chances of success improve?? (Even if you have improved slightly).
That’s the beauty and the peril of traditional CAT Coaching. And the fun part is that most of these institutes will claim fantastic results. Not all these claims are bogus – because it is natural that some of the students who started ahead will generally succeed at the end as well and reach the top. But that isn’t really the success of the coaching more in ensuring that an average student reaches near the top? Every year you find that more than half the students who score a 100%ile in the CAT are from IITs – do you think it’s because the coaching transforms them into something special or because they are genuinely exceptional students? If it’s the latter, chances are they could succeed even without the coaching or gained very little from it. On the other hand, students who actually, really, genuinely need the coaching will possibly not benefit from the assembly line system of traditional CAT coaching – because it is not designed with the average student in mind, and is the same for everyone.
That’s where you will find ADAPTIVE CAT Coaching at MBAGuru as truly path breaking and transformative.
About the author: Deekshant has sleep-walked through several 100 and 99.9 %iles in practically every section of the CAT. That he is a cricket fan and he writes okay is evident from most of his posts. 1000s of our students swear that he can motivate almost anyone to double his/her percentile through very simple yet powerful inputs. And that’s why every MBAGuru student has direct access to him via mail and Telegram. Oddly, he somehow also finds the time to write songs professionally. And yes … almost missed this … he is an alumnus of IIT Delhi & IIM Cal
