MBA is a dream which many of you would have been nurturing from your graduation days or maybe even earlier. When I speak of MBA, CAT is almost synonymous. CAT as most of you must be aware is the abbreviation for 'Common Admission Test' which is a computer based aptitude test conducted by Indian Institute of Management (IIMs) for their various business management courses. As per their policy of rotation every year the exam is conducted by some different IIM.
Although the eligibility criterion for CAT (Common Admission Test) is announced every year officially in July, CAT eligibility criterion has continued to be same over the years. As per the CAT eligibility criteria any candidate applying for CAT must have completed or have appeared for Bachelor's degree final year examination with minimum of 50% aggregate (now that's not very tough). Assessing our CAT eligibility is the first step we take towards our dream called IIM and so there is no place for confusion or ambiguity of any sorts. Let us now outline what exactly does this CAT eligibility criterion is in detail:
From past 3 years CAT exam fee for general category is 1700Rs and that for reserved categories is 850Rs. The CAT application procedure is online. During the application procedure, candidates are required to select the IIMs to which they wish to apply. An aspirant will not be considered for further stages of selection at an IIM if he/she does not select that IIM at the application stage. Candidates can log into www.iimcat.ac.in for the registration procedure.
