Shortlisting B-school

Choosing a b-school is a tough task. As an aspirant, you have to keep many parameters in check while filling up the forms of different colleges, like cut-off, Faculty to Student ratio, Specialization, Placements, Reputation, Location, percentile range, and many more. Hence giving mock tests before the actual test becomes very crucial, as these mock tests help you determine your expected percentile range.

This is how B-school shortlist candidates

Whatever your percentile range comes up, a good practice is when you shortlist colleges which lie in your range and few colleges above and below your percentile range to increase your admission chance and subsequently you can categorize them in Safe (Colleges that is below your percentile range), Competitive(Colleges that in lies your percentile range) and Dream ( Colleges that are above your percentile range).

These categories have been made keeping in mind that CAT is like a one-day cricket game. If you came under pressure you might under-perform, if you kept your calm you may sail through and get your expected or sometimes more than expected percentile. So the motto here is to get maximum GDPI calls from your shortlisted colleges to increase your conversion rate.

Research well about different exams, because many tests cater to a similar pool of college and if by chance you messed up your CAT you can still get into a good b-school through different tests like XAT, SNAP, NMAT, etc.
