CAT 2020 & 2021 Prep in Bengaluru

Mission & Vision

EduShastra mission is to provide a complete solution to every student. Each student is provided specialized, one-on-one services from the beginning (Choosing Business School) to end (Securing Admission). Customized 1-on-1 services are provided in all admission facets such as Profile evaluation, Personality development, Admission counseling, Editing of applications, etc. Our comprehensive database ensures scientific school selection that is customized to your requirements.

Teaching Model

We have “Hybrid Customized Interactive teaching model”. We believe that Education should be interactive, two-dimensional, personalized and should be tailored to every student.

All of our courses are “A blend of Online home classes & Classroom-coaching”. When we say Online, it means “Live Virtual Class”. We don’t offer recorded lectures or animations.

For Offline Classroom mode, we have collaborated with schools all over India. We utilize their classrooms in the evenings or weekends to conduct classes.

Individualized Learning v/s Herd Teaching

We believe that education should be individualized and it should not be what coaching centers do. Most of the educational companies practice “Herd Teaching” in which they make large batches to maximize their profits.

We specialize in a method of teaching in which content, instructional technology, and pace of learning are based upon the abilities and interests of each learner. We try to recognize the uniqueness of each learner and thus we provide adequate tutorial guidance, and other services to bring about a wholesome development in the person. The ultimate goal is to provide a learning environment that maximizes the potential for student success.

All courses are designed to be a “One-on-One” teaching.

​Batch Size, Student-Faculty Ratio

We prefer small batch sizes of around 7-9 students in a classroom as well as in a Live Online mode.

CAT Centers in Bengaluru

Classroom coaching will start soon in Bengaluru. We are providing “Live Online Classes” for Bengaluru and other adjoining areas.

Admission Standard Operating Procedure

Every new student is mapped into a “Zero Group” for a week. Zero group is also called “Introductory Phase Group”. After a week, based on everyone’s performance in “Mapping Phase”, students are divided into five different IQ groups.

Our Internal Mapping System is a process to mark or rate students on the basis of their Intellect, Intelligence (IQ), Aptitude, Attitude, and Commitment.

Our Mapping system also helps us in making “Homogeneous Batches”. Similarly mapped students are grouped into the same batches.

Batch Selection Methodology

We follow a scientific selection process in batch-allocation. Batches are made based on the student’s “IQ Parameter Mapping”. Same mapped students are grouped into the same batch. In this way, we create homogenous groups in terms of Intellect, Intelligence (IQ), Aptitude, Attitude, and Commitment.

Every Batch is provided with a unique and customized solution. The solutions are not only different in its content but also in course structure, syllabus, approach, class schedule and program pace.

Money-Back Promise

We are proud of our products. Our “Money-Back Promise” is to symbolize our confidence in our education solutions. We also believe that teachers should take responsibility for any shortcomings.

Our all courses come with this feature in which fee is returned if a student is not able to get promised score in the Test.

  • Our 6 series batches offer a 60+ Percentile score promise.
  • Our 7 & 8 series batches offer a 80+ Percentile score promise.
  • Our 9 series batches offer a 90+ Percentile score promise.
  • Our 10 series batches offer a 96+ Percentile score promise.

Course Fees

Our motto is to provide “Affordable Quality Education“. We take it as our duty to create a just society in which everyone has “Right to Education”. Quality education should not be only for rich. Our endeavor is to provide education at a price which everyone can afford.

Our Faculty

Our faculty can be called missionaries who are working under our banner not only for monetary gains but also share our mission and direction.

All batches are assigned a Teachers Panel which usually have 8-9 teachers who take care of all course requirements. We believe that a teacher is a paternalistic leader who works by acting as a father figure by taking care of their subordinates as a parent would. In this style of leadership, the leader supplies complete concern for his students.

Course Material

Our Course Material is unique in its content and presentation. We believe in “Real Education” in which our focus is not only to give comprehensive written material but also to make a better-educated person.

CAT Course Structure

All the CAT courses whether regular or customized are unique in their structure.

All Phases of the course are designed to be as personalized as a “One-on-One” Instruction.

All Courses are divided into four phases:

  1. Introductory or Mapping Phase (One-on-One Stage): This phase is employed at the beginning and usually takes 2-4 sessions. In this phase, GMCAT Instructors try to analyze every student in the batch by their interaction with them. This step takes 10% of total course time.
  2. Foundation Phase (Batch Stage): It covers basics of all sections of CAT & GMAT. This phase is around 20-50% of the whole course.
  3. Testing Phase (One-on-One Stage): This phase involves Computer Adaptive Tests, Computer Based Tests, and Paper Based Tests. Every course comes with a commitment of “Minimum Tests” i.e. a minimum number of tests which a student has to attempt to complete the course.
  4. Control Phase (One-on-One Stage): This last Phase is to look into any gaps in test preparation.

What is the maximum number of Tests offered?

No Limit. We don’t assign it to a numerical value. The objective of Testing Phase is to improve student’s ability. Tests for any student will not stop till we see desired results.

The primary objective of Testing Phase is to search for student’s ‘Optimal saturation level’. This stage can also be defined as a stage where Concept, Application and Practice variable will not have any effect on the score.
