I am sorry to say that you are not eligible to appear for CAT Exam as you are pursuing 2nd year of B.Com course and which is not the required academic criteria to appear for CAT Exam.

CAT stands for Common Admission Test. This Exam is being conducted by IIMs (Indian Institute of Management) to give admission for MBA course in top B-Schools and IIMs which are the well known institutes for MBA course.

This is the best exam for the candidates to join MBA course. It is an online exam and the competition for this exam is very high.

In the previous academic year, more than 5 lakhs candidates have taken this exam. So, one should have strong preparation for the exam to get through it.

If the candidate secure very high percentile in CAT Exam, he will go through other rounds of selection procedure like
-Group Discussion
-Interview
to be placed in IIMs.

Here is the required eligibility criteria that a candidate should possess to take up this exam.

-One should have completed Graduation with any of the stream from a recognized university with a minimum of 50% of marks.
-Relaxation is there in percentage of marks upto 5% for the candidates of SC/ST category.
-No specific age limit mentioned for this exam. One can take up this Exam at any age.

So, still 1 year of good time is there in your hands. Make most out of it by having excellent preparation for CAT Exam.

You can appear for the Common Admission Test after clearing graduation. Only if you meets the percentage criteria in graduation, you will be allowed to appear for the Common Admission Test.

CAT is the most popular MBA entrance exam which is conducted by the Indian Institutes of Management. The IIMs are considered best colleges for management studies.

There are other reputed colleges like Indian Institutes of Technology, National Institutes of Technology, Indian Institute of Science etc that also offer admission for the management courses through the Commom Admission Test.

However the first priority of the candidates is to take admission in Indian Institutes of Management. But it is not going to be easy. You will have to score extremely well and then apply for admission in as many IIMs as possible.

The Master of Business Administration is the 2 years post graduation course in management. Although IIMs offer a post graduation diploma in management, it is considered equal to the post graduation MBA degree. You can apply for MBA in various streams like:

Economics

Banking

Retail Management

Marketing

IT

Human Resources

Finance


CAT Eligibility

1. To apply for CAT, you should have under graduate degree.

2. Must have at least 50 percent marks in it.

3. SC/ST need 45 percent marks.


You should not apply for the CAT exam now. Right now you are in second year of Bachelor of Commerce. The criteria is that candidates who have completed the graduation and now waiting for results can apply for CAT when it will be conducted in October/November. But they will have to submit the degree next year by June 30.

As you are pursing 2nd year B.Com. which means you are yet to complete your Graduation Degree, so now you are not eligible to apply and appear for CAT Entrance exam.

CAT - Common Admission Test conducted by IIM(Indian Institute of Management) for admission to MBA(Master of Business Administration) course in IIMs.

The eligible candidate must be an Indian national having completed Graduation Degree with 50% marks(45% marks for SC/ST candidate) in any stream of education from a recognised University. There is no upper age limit for application to CAT.
