What next?

 

Decide wisely – Even if your percentile meets the cutoff to a B-School, before applying, or confirming admission (considering you receive final admission offer), know if the institute is worth your precious two years. The factors you need to assess are brand name or repute, ROI factor (fee vs average salary offered at placement), location, industry exposure, faculty strength, resources, infrastructure among others. Seek review from current students, contact the college officials and if possible, visit the B-School to get a true picture.

 

Take other upcoming exams – CAT is the most competitive MBA entrance exam but not the only one. A low percentile is CAT does not mean that you don’t have chance in other exams. MAT and ATMA are conducted more than three times in a year and you have high chances to secure a good percentile owing to easy difficulty level and lesser number of test takers. The number of participating institutes is also high. Also, the season for state level MBA entrance exam has also commenced. Hence, if you are looking for admission in Odisha, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh etc., do keep an eye on the application window and appear for the state level entrance tests.

 

Prepare for GD PI and WAT – Although the final round of selection process may not carry a very high weightage and a shortlist is almost a confirmation to final admission offer, a good performance in GD/WAT and PI rounds would strengthen your admission chances.

 

Consider retest – If the reason for your low score is lack of preparation, you may consider appearing for CAT again this year. By now, you must have known your weak areas where you need to improve. Taking the lesson from your previous performance, start afresh to secure a much higher percentile and target admission to your dream B-schools.
