GMCAT (GMAT + CAT) Prep
In mathematical language, GMCAT = GMAT + CAT.
GMCAT is a hybrid course for both GMAT and CAT preparation. We believe that both the tests are very similar and complementary to each other.
Common Admission Test (CAT) is an all-India Entrance test conducted by IIMs. This computer-based test is for admission to their 2-year full-time PG programs in management. Other Indian business schools such as IITs, FMS, S P Jain, MDI, NITIE, etc also accept CAT scores.
The Graduate Management Admission Test is a computer adaptive test intended to assess analytical, quantitative & verbal skills in Mathematics and English. GMAT is accepted by more than 6,000 business and management programs worldwide.
Our History with GMCAT
Our association with GMCAT started in 2016. We found that success rate in GMCAT is much higher compared to GMAT course. We also observed that preparing for both GMAT & CAT helped aspirants in both the tests.
CAT 2016 & 2017 results at a glance:
The success rate of Leading Institutes, which provides preparatory courses for CAT, is not more than 1-2% i.e. 1-2 students out of 100 end up getting more than 99 overall percentile whereas our success rate is close to 9-12%.
Why prepare for GMAT and CAT simultaneously?
GMAT & CAT have the same syllabus, both deal with Mathematics and English. Both tests complement each other. Preparing for GMAT helps CAT aspirants in verbal, and CAT preparation helps GMAT aspirants in Quantitative Section. Most of the sections in both the tests are common.
MBA admission is a steep road. It's important to keep all doors open. It's good to be confident, but there is a thin line difference between confidence and over-confidence. CAT success rate (% of students getting admission in good colleges) is meager. GMAT, on the other hand, opens doors for almost all the global and Indian business schools.
One more misconception about GMAT is that it's only for rich. A Business school is not "Global" if it does not keep "Currency Disparity" in their mind. That's why they offer scholarships to aspirants from lower-valued currency countries. Almost all the Indian students end up getting scholarships to study abroad.
Note for Graduation Final Year Students:
Business schools accepting GMAT scores need at least 2+ Years work experience. But then also it makes more sense to give GMAT with CAT. The first reason is GMAT score is valid for five years.
Secondly, It's much better to have a GMAT score before selecting business schools. It gives time to aspirants to work on their needed profile.
Thirdly, Taking out study time is much easier in student life compared to that in job times. Most of the working applicants find it very difficult to take time out for studies.
Lastly, CAT success rate is meager compared to GMAT. Till your overall %ile is touching 99, you are not a serious candidate for IIM-A, B & C. And if your %ile is lower than 98%, you have to go for tier-2 B-schools only.
GMAT & CAT Section-wise Analysis:
Sentence Correction: Both exams require candidates to spot grammatical errors. There is one manageable difference. GMAT SC is based on American English while CAT SC is based on British English.
Reading Comprehension: The passages in the CAT and GMAT are almost equally cryptic. RC in GMAT is more difficult than that in CAT.
Critical Reasoning: GMAT CR is tougher than CAT CR. If you are prepared for GMAT CR, then CAT CR is a cakewalk.
CAT preparation will make GMAT Quant a kid's play. The good news is that many CAT topics such as logarithms, trigonometry, calendars, clocks, shares, etc are not tested in GMAT.
Analytical writing assessment
GMAT tests your clarity of thinking in this section. It looks for content, the organization of thought process, language skills and writing mechanisms in evaluating the essays. The good news is that the AWA is not a tough section to ace.
GMAT & CAT Comparison
Both GMAT & CAT are most popular MBA entrance examinations. Most of the Business Schools in India accept CAT or GMAT score. In India, the number of B-schools accepting GMAT scores is higher than those accepting CAT score. Please refer GMAT Accepting Schools in India
GMCAT Course Structure
GMCAT courses whether regular or customized are unique in their structure.
All Phases of the course are designed to be a "One-on-One" Instruction.
All Courses are divided into three phases:
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.
Foundation Phase (Batch Stage): It covers basics of all sections of CAT & GMAT. This phase is around 20-50% of the whole course.
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.
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.

We offer two Elite batches: "700+ or 90+ percentile Batch" & "750+ or 96+ percentile Batch". Both batches come with "Money-Back Guarantee". New Students cannot opt for these batches, the admission is through "Invitations" only. Students of regular batches are offered seats in these batches on the basis of their performance.
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, as per performance of individual in the class and our internal “Mapping System”, students are invited for Regular or Elite batches.
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 same batches.
Batch Selection Methodology
We follow scientific selection and batch-making process. Batches are made on the basis of our internal "Mapping Parameters". Similarly mapped students are grouped into the same batches. In this way we create homogeneous groups in terms of Intellect, Intelligence (IQ), Aptitude, Attitude and Commitment. It also brings meaningful competition among the students.
This also helps us in creating course syllabus, curriculum and pace for a batch. As we provide customized educational solutions for everyone, our internal mapping system helps us in multiple ways to create a meaningful and effective course strategy. Higher mapped students are given a very different solution compared to lower mapped students. We divide all students into five kinds of groups. They are 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10 series batches. Elite batches are batch series 9 & 10.
“EduShastra Select” Batches
“EduShastra Select” is our new initiative. The Generic idea is to create “100% Perfect” batch, which can have 100% success rate. Right now, our average success percentage hovers around 80-90%. This effort is our “Last Mile Journey” in which we implement “Six Sigma” Quality Management Methods and Processes in our course structure as well as methodology.
These batches will not have open admissions, but every student must earn his/her space in it. We will do everything to make sure that we create a “Zero Defects” methodology and course structure which can create a “100% Perfect” group.
One-on-one Personalized Course for each student.
Custom-Built Testing Phase: It will be further divided into three phases.
550-650 or 50-80 percentile Phase: This range is also called “Mass-Range or Mean-Range”. Most of the test-takers belong to this range. Testing Structure Mix:

Regular Programs' Fees:
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.
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.
Computer-Based & Adaptive Tests
CAT is Computer-Based and GMAT is Computer-Adaptive Test. Computerized adaptive testing (CAT) is a form of computer-based test that adapts to the examinee's ability level. For this reason, it has also been called "Tailored testing". After some Initial Full Lengths computer adaptive tests, we customize all our tests for every student. Tests are customized based on the student's past performances.
