What after CAT 2017?

The Common Admission Test (CAT) this year happened on the 26th of November, 2017. It is one of the most competitive exams in India and is conducted by the IIMs for admission into the IIMs. Few other prestigious institutions that accept CAT scores for their admission process.

As CAT 2017 was analyzed to be marginally tougher than the previous years, many students are tensed about the scores and results of the exam. One need not be tensed as CAT follows relative grading and anything more than 85% percentile is considered safe.
