VITHAL KALIGOTLA || CAT 2020-99.57 %tile


Background: I graduated from NIT Warangal (B.Tech in Electronics). I scored 99.57 Percentile in CAT 2020 and 95 Percentile in XAT 2021. I have received calls from IIM Lucknow, IIM Shillong, MDI Gurgaon, IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, SP Jain.

Why MBA: The idea of pursuing MBA came in my mind when I was doing B.Tech. One of my professors recommended me to give CAT. I had no idea about it back then but I gave it a try anyway and scored 89 percentile in 2018.

I have always been good with interacting and managing people and later, I realized that management might be my true calling. So, I decided that I would again attempt CAT and began its preparation in September 2019.

Why Elites Grid for Preparation: Elites Grid is very common name among CAT Aspirants. It was suggested to me by one of my friends and I am so grateful to him because his suggestion made my dreams turn into reality. Initially, I attended their LRDI booster trial classes. Their faculty is one of the major reasons that makes Elites Grid best choice for every CAT aspirant out there. The amount of time and effort they provide to each and every student is highly commendable. They go out of their way to make sure that we reach our full potential and treat us just like family.

In my second attempt of CAT in 2019, I got 95 percentile overall, 98 percentile in VRC, 96 percentile QA and 58 percentile in LRDI. My LRDI was very weak to begin with. It was because of Elites Grid booster classes that I even managed to score 58 percentile. But I did not get my preferred institutes with this score. So, I decided to take CAT again and joined Elites Grid.

How Elites Grid added value: Their teaching methods are very innovative. The mock analysis sessions conducted by Elites Grid made us familiar with the exam pattern so much so that the actual exam felt just like another mock. Even though the classes were conducted online, they were very interactive and effective.

Their faculty is very caring and supportive. When there was a change in the pattern of exams, my grades fell drastically in mocks and I lost all hope. But they motivated me a lot and solved my doubts and queries even at 2 AM at night. I scored 99.57 percentile in my third attempt. All thanks to Elites Grid’s constant support and guidance.

Advise to CAT’21 Aspirants: Work hard and trust your mentors. Joining Elites Grid definitely gave me an edge over others. They motivated and pushed me to work hard and achieve my goals and develop a more pragmatic approach towards life.
