sir, Mam I am studying in B.Tech (3rd year) .I want to crack CAT and GMAT exams to get a seat in IIMs or B-schools .so what should I do? please Give me any suggestions?

harshita sharan Student Expert 17th May, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

Since you are in B.Tech 3rd year now, so i think this is the right time for you to start your Preparation for CAt. You have one year for preparation at this stage of time. To start with I'll recommend you to brush up your basic knowledge of Mathematics. Since you are a Btech student you won't face much difficulty in Quants section if you devote some time for practice regulary. For Verbal section, I'll suggest you to start reading novels, newspaper etc. as much as possible, This will increase your reading speed and improve your vocabulary. Solve past year questions for DILR practice. I'll suggest you to buy test series from some coaching institute for practice. CAT examination is all about practice and your command on subject. If you know the concepts and is good at english then you have high chances of cracking cat.

Good Luck

If I want to go to uk, canada or usa to pursue higher studies, which exam should i give? GMAT,GRE,SAT,ACT, TOEFL OR IELTS? Also, please give me a comparisons between these exams

Anantika Kushwaha 30th Apr, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

The type of exam should you give depends on the University you're looking for and also the course.

SAT or ACT is basically for Undergraduate courses while GRE and GMAT is for Postgraduate courses. TOEFL and IELTS are basically English Proficiency tests. They are given by the candidates whose native language is not English, it too varies according to the university. Every university has it's different criteria but if you're looking for Undergraduate course then you should give SAT as it is accepted by many universities and the language exam based on what the university is accepting.

LPU is not AICTE Approved neither a Demmed University ? I know its UGC Approved but , Will it cause problem in Higher studies Abroad and in India (GRE/GMAT/GATE) or problems in Off Campus Placement and Company Switching ? Please Give Correct Answer !!!! DO NOT GIVE LPU WEBSITE NOT HAVING AICTEREASON

Dharamveer Dheer 6th May, 2020

Lets go point by point:

1. Universities DO NOT need AICTE approvals, as AICTE is not the regulatory authority for Universities.

2. LPU is a full fledged PRIVATE University established u/s 2F of UGC act. Deemed universities are those which run only one branch of courses and are not given FULL university status by UGC.

3. For higher studies abroad: LPU itself has tie ups with over 200 top universities world over. secondly, most universities abroad take the scores of GRE/GMAT/GATE etc, there are thousands of LPU students world over who have passed these examinations and are either studying abroad or have completed their studies.

4. Higher studies in India: All the LPU courses are recognized by all the universities in India for qualifying examination purpose due to UGC recognition.

5. Placements: LPU has one of the biggest and most elaborate placement process for thousands of its students in all the programs and more than 600 companies visit the campus for recruitment offering lucrative offers. Going to company switching later on, the skills attained in LPU act as catalyst in your career. Most of the technologies being taught in LPU improve your efficiency by leaps and bounds.

Hope this solves all the points.
