What Makes IIMSKILLS India’s Best CAT Coaching?
Our Online CAT Coaching is designed in such a way that every student gets personal attention & customized coaching for CAT exam and other MBA related entrance tests. We do not focus on building unnecessary material just to exaggerate our offerings to the students. Our focus is on how one can get a satisfactory CAT Percentile in one’s first attempt.
We evaluate every student and find out their strong and weak zones. On the basis of that we ensure:
Coaching Based On Student Academic Profile
The Internet is full of CAT Preparation Study material, video books, online video tutorials, and Mock Tests. Unlike other institutions, IIM SKILLS focuses on creating what is required for a student to crack CAT Exam. Our strong Mock Test helps us to identify weak zones of every student which helps us to work on them based on their academic requirements. Our instructors focus on building up weak muscles first for the students based on their Mock Test.
Eg: If you have scored less in English in your MOCK Test for CAT preparation, however, your QUANT & DILR score is good, we will focus on English more in your study plan.
Individual Centric Session Over Batch Centric
In a typical in-class CAT Coaching Program or even Online Cat Coachings, you are bound to study in a fixed set of batches & your CAT Preparation alignment is never on the basis of what is needed for you, as a result of which you end up wasting your valuable time on reading stuff which you already know. This majorly happens especially in a case when someone is taking CAT Exam 2nd or 3rd time.
On the basis of your profiling done through your Mock Test, we will assign you To The Point Study Material, Video Lectures & Personalised Training & Trainer.
Free Lifetime Access (Need of an Hour)
Every year 2.5 lac students register for CAT Examinations but many do not get expected score for their preferred college(s). Unlike typical institutions we accept the fact that every student does not clear the CAT exam in just 1 attempt.
We offer lifetime access to our online CAT Coaching without any additional cost. By any chance if you fail to meet your expected results you can re-prepare without spending anything extra on your CAT preparation studies through our live online + self paced recorded sessions.
In the above case, given your coach is already aware about your strengths and weaknesses it will become easier for us as well to get you through with your CAT Exam in the next attempt.
Flexibility For Working Professionals & College Students
We assume a big percentage of students preparing for CAT/MBA entrance Test are working professionals or college students. They are limited with time, travel & of course energy due to their other personal commitments. Our Online CAT Coaching allows our students to give enough time for their exam preparation without compromising with their personal commitments.
