Joining Elitesgrid for CAT coaching was the fuel for my IIM dream.
10th: 90.80 %
12th: 88.00 %
B.E: 71.7 %
Work Experience: 6+ years (Yes, you read that right. !!)
Although, I cannot comment on the industry absorption of people with more work-ex, I can assure you that as far as selections are concerned, work-ex on the higher side won’t be much of an issue and I can say this because I could convert IIM K, IIM Shillong and NITIE (I did not get calls from higher IIMs).
This was my first, and last CAT attempt and I consider myself lucky to get to know about Elitesgrid, and I was under able hands of the mentors at Elitesgrid. Even, I would like to mention a few aspects of Elitesgrid that makes it stand out among the pool of CAT coaching institutes.
First of all, I would like to bow down to the efforts they put in their work. “Doing absolute justice to your work” is the most precious thing that I have learned from Elitesgrid. Thank you for teaching me that. As far as the syllabus is concerned, Kab-Kya-Kahan-Kaise-Kitna padhna hai..they have got it all sorted out. All you need to do is just go with the flow and trust the Elitesgrid team. And finally, the most critical and exclusive aspect of EG is the constant moral support and guidance provided by them throughout the CAT journey, and I cannot stress this fact enough.
More than converting the B-Schools, I felt a sense of achievement when I scored 99.03 %ile in VA RC and that too when the general verdict was that it was tough. My Verbal game got changed when in one of the sessions, Shahzar Sir said,” There is nothing illogical in VA RC. It’s all logical. You just have to find that logic, that rationale, behind the question”. Since then, I would try to do just that. My score and accuracy improved dramatically in mocks.
As for the LRDI section, you don’t need to look for any other sources except the ones provided by Gaurav Sir. He truly said, “LRDI can’t be taught, but with enough practice and by covering as many varieties of questions as possible, one can ace this section”. Elites grid Youtube series is excellent. It’s a priceless gem, that is provided by elitesgrid free of cost for the betterment of all students.
Last but not least, Quant ke liye to Hunny Sir ka Naam hi kaafi hai !!. His sheer patience topped with his determination to make students understand all the concepts, from the simplest to the trickiest, is what makes him the backbone of EG. And the number of times he would make you revise all the concepts; you would lose count of it!!
Neend me bhi bas quant hi nazar ayegi and Hunny Sir ki awaz hi sunayi degi 😛
To summarise it all, I would just say that follow the advice of the mentors, give your heart and soul into the preparation, and you would not need to go anywhere else. I did not practice from anywhere else, except the material provided by Elitesgrid, and that proved to be the best decision of my life.
