dear friend

If you want to prepared for CAT exams, then you can easily take a break to prepare for CAT exams because for CAT entrance exams, you have to prepared in advance. If you prepared for this exams for 1 year, you will definately get good marks and you will get
good colleges of MBA............

I dont think so !

Why to drop a year when you can prepare for same without droping, just appear for it if you cant get good then fo next time, while doing any part time work you can also prepare for it side by side. Dont forget you are an Engineer and Work experiance will make your career prospect even better and much better.

So, I think first time you have to appear for CAT when you have given your finals then if not good rank get into some part time work related to you field, and prepare for it simultaneously, it would be better.

Check out if you think by Droping you can deliver your best then its Ok not problem, but if you have even a little doubt then so as I explained.

However, decision is your's Remember no one can Judge you better then yourself.

taking one year gap is accepted but don't devote the entire time for study....do a job side by side as well so that you can gain valuable work ex and if you don't get into good college you can continue working....also start preparing now as it will give you more practice.....

Hmmm...Dropping One year for a CAT is worth given..Donn think You are going to crack it in 2 to 3 months time period...But yes you can do one thing if you are almost done aiming for a CAT then do Join top class Institutes for the preperation lke career launcher in delhi, T.I.M.E in bangalore and I.M.S in chennai....and it could be even better to do job along with it related to your science veritcal...And yes Mind mah words , you will only get into Top six IIM'S when you have scored atleast 99.6 percentile in your C.A.T. exam...So road ahead is full of bumps but you can cross it dilligently with proper dedication ....

all the best in all your Endeavours...

Well I must say you could do even better if you drop your year for the preps..But do one thing like u said you are a 3rd year B tech. student go for a CAT 2010 exam also ..Hence it will assess your overall performance about where you stand in all the sections and which part is your strength and which one is your weakness and after that work hard on your strengths to turn them into personality add and do the same for weakness too...after then prepare for CAT 2011 with best coaching Institutes.


Sincerity ,Accuracy, Dedication ,time management, Leniency , Strong fundamentals and Regular practice are the keys for dynamic performance....Always remember you are not the stronger one in your town hence it will lead you to become overrated and over confident personality and you will not get what exactly you are looking for in all your Endeavour but still you are not the weaker one so Start preparing for it and BELL THE C.A.T......

if you drop one year then your preparation will be good and you can easily clear CAT exam and get admission in a good mba college. But you must also try this year. May be you will get a good college without wasting one year.

hello friend
it is completely depend on your skills and capability that when you start your preparation

i would sugges that as you are in 3rd year you must have started your preparation
you donot need to waste a year to prepare for cat exam
you must go for preparations from now only and do well
hope you will be selected in the first attempt

if you are not able to do then you can go for a job and side by side prepare for the cat exam

No, Never try to drop any year in between the academic because it shows a bad impression towards the interviewer.

You can try the CAT exan while you are in the job ,jost do it simultaneously..

Or try to start te preparation while you are in the final year of your academics...

Best wishes..

actually this matter totally depends upon you.
but,i'm giving you an idea if you capable to take preparation side by side in your running study,it will be better for you.
if you drop in between your academic it may be bad in future.
so, friend keep hard work.i think you will be succed in future.

In my opinion It will be a good idea to drop For 1 year for CAT preparation beacause ITs the time when you are in a flow to study...Because once you start to do a job...You wont get enough time to prepare for CAT...So try waiting an study sincerely for CAT...YOU will surely crack CAT easily and then you can join MBA...And increase you salary to a great Extent...

some of the Good coaching Centres for CAT are ..

IMS http://www.imsindia.com

TIME etc.

Good luck !!

dropping a year after Btech all depends on you. As how is your financial condition whether it supports you or not and how keen you are to crack the exam. If really sincere and you think you can, but think you will have to give your 1 precious year for it. it should not proove a wastage.
As today to beat any competetion is very tough and hard work is required in every field. When it comes to build up a good carer you have to make many crucial decisions of life. Many are there who after certain period of time attain there goal through their hard work and devotion. But others just keep on wandering and wasting the time and year and year again.
Being a Btech you can even join the job but all upto you how you want to mould your careera nd fate.

dear friend,
Droping one precious year is not a wise thinking.
You will face some common problem that why you took one year after completion of your B.Tech. something like that.

So,i suggest you to take preparation for CAT during the B.tech course.
But if you will get IIM after taking one year drop then it may be affordable.

good luck.

Default Re: Is it good to drop one year after btech for CAT preparation?

hi friend,

There is some different story happens in case of CAT exam, since this exam is conducted in the month of november, you may easily see that even if you drop for the year , you are basically dropping for only 4 months(because you will only have 4 months after your engineering to prepare for CAT exam) . Which are quite a few, and I dont think so that one who really wants to prepare for a year will prepare in this short spam of time.
So you can follow two plans:
Either you start preparing now by taking a weekend tuition and join a test series weekly at the end of engineering.
Or you start your preparation after your engineering both regular classes as well as test series for the period of 4 months.

It is not a good idea of taking drop after Btech for cat preparation.
You can carry your prepare from 3rd year and can clear CAT in final year number of student follow this way for CAT and save time.
If you already clear your BE then you can join company for showing you are not free during 1 year and have genuine reason to show that you have not any year gap.

Hey please don't think of wasting one precious year for CAT training.

You can go through CAT training from institutes like TIMES which offer you a good training course for 1 year/6 months.

You can go through the training when your in the fourth year because the 2nd semester comprises of project so better go for training in the fourth year.

all the best
