Why Prepare with 2IIM?

Because of great teachers, and great teaching!

Breaking through the 85% Barrier

To get to the 85% and the low 90's, one needs dilligence and perhaps little less. If you do the grind and fight to have a sound understanding of basics, this is the first plateau you'll reach. The climb beyond this is far tougher...

Making the Climb Easier

Climbing the Everest is a lot easier if you've got a guide who's been there before, and knows how to push you hard to get there yourself. We take the CAT every year, and pride ourselves on being there to push our students over the finish line.

So who teaches here?

Our teachers take the CAT every year and crack it on a routine basis.
We understand this exam and are passionate teachers.

Our director, Rajesh, has scored 100th percentile thrice – CAT 2011, CAT 2012 and CAT 2014.

Adwait Deshpande CAT 2015 : 99.66
VA-RC: 99.1, DI-LR: 98.34, QA: 98.93

I would like to thank the entire team of 2IIM for helping me crack the CAT. I chose to enroll for an online class for CAT preparations since my work required a lot of travel in and around Mumbai, and it wasn't possible for me to attend classroom coaching classes. I googled for online CAT classes and stumbled upon 2IIM. I went through the free lectures posted on their website and really liked how the lessons were taught and how the subject matter was organized. I signed up for the service immediately.

This was one of the better decisions I've made in my life.

I had no idea what the CAT exam was about, and as this was my first attempt, I saw Mr. Rajesh's videos on YouTube which gave me pointers and a direction to follow.

After that I just listened to his lectures and gave a mock test every week, and the rest is history. I was mediocre student all throughout my life, with bleak prospects for the future, but irrespective of what happens next, I am now confident of my own abilities and optimistic about what lies ahead, thanks to this wonderful CAT score!

Tejaswi Priyadarshi CAT 2015 : 99.3
VA-RC: 99.71, DI-LR: 98.8, QA: 93.45

I saw the name 2IIM among the many names that flashed on my computer screen when I googled "Online coaching classes for CAT", at a juncture when there were only 3-4 months left for CAT 2015. What I needed was a thorough revision of my basics coupled with CAT relevant practice and I ended up zeroing in on 2IIM. At present, I'm glad that I did because I got what I needed- an hour everyday without the hassle of travelling for hours (Bangalore traffic is horrible).

Crisp video lectures, excellent practice material and moral/subjective support- I got all these from Rajesh and Bharath, even at wee hours! I can vouch for 2IIM and would definitely recommend it to people who are hell bent on taking the CAT- with dedication.

Thanks guys!

Vaibhav

At 2IIM, Rajesh and team's main focus is on basics. We at 2IIM start with simple concepts and problems and then take it to next level step by step. Teaching philosophy over here is very simple - Prepare the student for what’s going to come in the exam (CAT, XAT, NMAT etc.) unlike other institutes where everyone is around phantom difficulty level questions which as the CAT revealed is absolutely irrelevant. Although all the teachers at 2IIM are brilliant in their area, I was particularly impressed by Mr.Rajesh. It’s no secret that his teaching abilities are unmatched but for me his other quality in the way he motivates students is exceptional. I personally have called him many times at times when I was feeling low or when I thought that I couldn't do it. Each time he told me what CAT really was and what people made it to appear. As a serial CAT topper, you would expect him to talk of high level concepts and quick techniques but it’s just the opposite, he follows a simple, detailed and calm approach. 2IIM’s online product is just a brilliant option because it just feels like one on one class with Rajesh.

From solved questions to detailed concepts everything is covered in online version of the product. For someone who is unable to attend classes regularly that is just a life saver. Having taken mocks from 3 other vendors, I can proudly say that even 2IIM mocks were the one closest to Actual CAT.

Finally, after studying at 2IIM I can confidently say that no one in the business knows CAT (or for that matter XAT,NMAT) better than them.

Mukund

I am Mukund, working in an MNC. 5 years into IT industry, when everybody were vying for onsite opportunities, I was gazing out on possibilities for seeking after a regular MBA. So CAT was the right approach to attain it. But I had my own doubts.

1. “I have worries that my level of English is not up to CAT. So will I be able to compete with others?” Expert’s opinion was: CAT essentially tests your comprehension aptitude. If one is good at communicating his/her thoughts effectively, with a little adaptation of few tactics, one unquestionably has a good chance.

2. As I am a working executive, i can't put extra hours like a fresh Graduate. Is that a disadvantage? Expert’s opinion was: Spending 2-3 hours a day will be sufficient enough to crack the exam.

When Rajesh was at the helm, as students, our job was just to follow him sincerely and nothing else was required. Faculty members treated each question with equal respect even if it looked silly. 2IIM materials are exceptionally useful during the last phase of planning as they drive through the essentials and discuss various structures of ideas. They firmly advised students to take as many mock CAT's as possible enabling the students to figure out how to manage the time, assess where they stand, decide on which question to choose and which one to leave and so on. So 2IIM tries its best to show that CAT is not hard, given a genuine attempt to crack it. Why not make best use of it then?

Many thanks to you 2IIM for guiding me and instilling the confidence which I required the most. In this whole learning process I eventually reinvented myself. Much obliged once more.

What if I'm still not sure...?

The Proof of the Pudding is in the Eating

Here are 8 randomly selected sample videos from the Online Course. See how we teach for yourself!

What makes 2IIM's Online CAT Preparation Better Than Classroom Coaching?

Anywhere

The course is lighter than the average youtube video. Prepare for the CAT no matter where you are, whether you're waiting to catch a bus or trying to stay awake during an unpleasant office meeting.

Anytime

Earlybird or night-owl, there's no doubt each person has a preferred time of day to study. The course is accessible 24 hours a day, everyday. Prepare according to your schedule; don't wait on your coaching centers'.

At Your Pace

A typical class that runs for 2.5 hours can be finished in 45 minutes or go on for 4.5 hours, depending on the pace that you set. You can review all videos as many times as you need to truly lay a solid foundation.

How do I access the Course?

Thanks to our wonderful tech-provider Learnyst, we've created a very intuitive platform. The classroom interface is easy to get used to and light enough that it loads super fast on even slow internet connections.

Play the video for a quick overview of different features of the Online Course, and how you can navigate from section to section.

How do I get Doubts Clarified?

Our platform allows students to post questions anywhere inside the course. Pause a video and post a question anytime you need more clarity on an idea.

We strive to clarify all questions in 24 to 48 hours. If your doubt needs video clarification, we'll shoot and upload a video on that point.

How are 2IIM's Online CAT Classes Better Than Other Providers?

*Our Online Course will be available as a mobile app from the month of May.

Cross Platform Compatability

2IIM

Compatible accross any platform.

Competitors

Either App-Based or Browser-Based.
Start learning a topic on your desktop at home, finish up at your office over lunch on your laptop, and practice questions on your mobile on your phone on the way back. With 2IIM's Online Course, you can study on any device, mobile or PC, and sync progress and analytics across platforms. Competitors restrict their course to single devices.

Hardware Requirement

2IIM

Works on any device.

Competitors

You need to shell out for custom hardware.
Most of us spend ages comparing mobile devices before settling on the phone or tablet that suits us our need. It's almost cruel that a provider demands that you purchase their hardware to access your content. We will never require you to buy a device to learn from us.

Online/Offline

2IIM

Uses the best of both worlds.

Competitors

Either always online, or completely offline.
Access our servers to update content when your internet is stable and view cached offline content (on your mobile) when on the move. With rival providers, you either get a course that doesn't refresh its content, or a course that requires you to be online all the time.

Optimised Technology

2IIM

Custom content prepared especially for online platform.

Competitors

Long videos of classroom lecturs not made for an online platform
Our platform is customised for Online Teaching. We create all our content for exclusive use online. This allows us to deliver content using the best technology and teaching practices. Competitors use recorded lectures of classroom programs, sometimes running up to 2 hours (it's difficult to watch movies that long, let alone lectures!)

Q. How do we contact 2IIM in case we need some more information?

You can drop us an email at prep@2iim.com or give us a call at 99626 48484. Or, you can chat with us (during specific office hours) from the chat window on this website. For any technical issues, reach out to our wonderful tech team at admin@learnyst.com

Q. Is the Online CAT Course alone sufficient to crack the CAT?

Most definitely, yes. The online course offers clear explanation for all the key concepts. The study material gives ample room for practice and the mock CAT series gets you geared for the actual exam. When we started the course, we thought people might view it as a supplement. We have been surprised by the fact that nearly 90% of the students have used the online course exclusively for their CAT preparation.

The Online CAT Course will be sufficient for CAT preparation on a standalone basis. One need not use any other material for preparation.

Q. What are the technical specifications my machine needs to have for the CAT Online course to work?

You will need to have an internet connection, preferably at a speed of around 1 MBPS or better. (the course runs even at speeds lower than that). The videos load only on the Chrome browser. So, the course can only be learnt using Chrome. The simplest test to see if the specifications are met is to try loading some video from youtube on a Chrome browser. If your computer + internet connection lets you watch a video from youtube, you should be able to view everything from the online course from 2IIM.

When our mobile app goes live in May, you will be able to save classes for offline viewing when your internet is stable, and learn from cached content when connectivity gets dicey.

Q. Can we view the videos more than once?

Yes. Each video can be viewed any number of times.

Q. The comprehensive pack that you provide has study material, online CAT course and mock CATs. Is the "Study Material" a replica of the online course?

The study material that we ship is different from the online course. The study material provides practice questions for all the topics and ideas discussed in the online course. The study material is not a replica; it is entirely different from what is provided online.

Q. You claim to be the best online CAT Preparation Course. How do you know this?

This one is easy. In our minds, we are probably the only one offering an Online CAT Preparation Course. We offer slide-decks, videos, check-point quizzes and CAT-Level Tests. Most products available are either test series, e-books or recorded classroom lectures. In our mind, none of these qualify as an online course. Online Preparation for CAT has to involve more than reading a bunch of PDFs on a laptop.

Any recorded video of length more than 15 minutes is more or less worthless. Research tells us that people struggle to watch even entertainment videos if they are more than 12 minutes long. (Imagine that, if one struggles to watch Amitabh Bachan for 12 minutes, what are odds of watching a tutor in a 60 minute long video?).

We have spent an inordinate amount of time and energy in designing this course. At every stage, we have worn the hat of a student and brought in the technology that works for each specific idea. The starting point has been the student requirement, and not the technology. This is why we went down the route of using screen capture videos and not live videos. Screen capture videos de-emphasize the teacher and bring the content to the forefront. (This hurts us while trying to market the product). But screen capture gives us two massive advantages - 1) Video size is small. Our videos on a per-minute basis are about one-fourth of the size of the videos on youtube. So, if you have an internet connection that lets you watch stuff of youtube you can most definitely take this course and 2) We can write equations and use a digital pen to highlight key ideas without worrying about camera focus.

Q. You have disclosed the tech provider, technology and given all the information up front here. Are you not worried that someone will mimic the online CAT Course?

We are very generous that way.

Jokes apart, the largest value in the online CAT course sits in the pedagogy. The value lies in
1) the way we have created the course,
2) the people who have created the course and
3) the quality of the content.
We have built the entire content with a team of 3 teachers. They have distilled years of teaching experience to come up with a well-thought out pedagogy that uses technology well. We have not used technology for the sake of using some fancy bits. We have found the tech pieces that the course demanded, not the other way around. That value which our teachers bring to the table cannot be replicated easily.

Q. You state repeatedly that the Online CAT course has been designed to help own learn at one's own pace. How so?

The online CAT Course at 2IIM has been constructed as a mixture of slide-decks, videos and quizzes. An average class that is pegged to be covered in, say, around 2.5 hours for the above-average student will comprise of ~80 slides interspersed with around 8-10 videos. The videos are all of 4-10 minutes length and each video focuses on a separate idea. So, if a student is comfortable with 5 of the 8 ideas discussed in the topic, he/she can skip these videos. Student can get to each subsequent slide by pressing "Next" and the speed is entirely governed by the student.

Apart from this, there are on an average two checkpoint quizzes per topic, each with 6-8 questions. These are simple practice questions to help consolidate the idea. For these also, detailed slide-deck presentations are available, but the student has the option of skipping these if she is comfortable with the question.

Beyond this, there is a timed Prep-Edge quiz that gives questions at the level of difficulty seen in CAT. These also come with detailed slide-deck solutions. Some of the trickier ones have video solutions as well. Student can choose to skip the solution, rush through the slides, or listen to the videos.

Since we give so much choice over picking the medium for the student, the flexibility over speed is established. A beginner can go through all videos, all solutions in detail, both checkpoint quizzes at his/her own speed, and the prep edge questions after doing some more practice. If done this way, the time taken would be around 5 hours for the class.

Someone who has taken CAT before and knows most of the basics can rush through the slides, listen in on the 4 most critical videos, speed through the checkpoint quizzes and focus on taking the Prep Edge quizzes with utmost seriousness. This 'expert' can finish the topic in less than 75 minutes.

The flexibility over speed is particularly useful while revisiting a topic. You can directly zone in on the 2-3 topics and 4-5 questions that you want to revisit, see 3 key videos and be done with the topic. Some of our students have been absolutely thrilled with the pace at which one can revise with the online product.

Q. Till what date is the online CAT course valid?

The 2IIM CAT Online coaching for CAT 2016 is valid till Jan 2017 (so you should be covered till XAT 2017). Any student wishing to extend the duration of the course can contact us at 99626 48484. Any upgrades or additions we do the course will be available to everyone.

Q. Which is better - pre-uploaded classes or "Live" ones?

This is a no-brainer. Pre-uploaded ones are way better than live classes. 'Live' classes mean that you have to attend at one specific time and listen to the lecture delivered in one specific pace. No freedom over time or pace. The only advantage is that you can tune in from home. If the 'live' lectures are not one-to-one, then there is no way one can have doubts clarified either. You can send your doubts across by email and they will get clarified later. But they will not be clarified at that moment.

We had quite a few students who were disappointed that we did not offer 'live' classes. We just could not wind our heads around why live classes would be better. Live classes are bad for the students. They are no more than a marketing gimmick. We take, on an average 4 'takes' for every screen-capture video that we upload to the online CAT course. We want to teach an idea "just right". We agonize over every detail as far as the pedagogy is concerned. All these advantages one gets from iterating a process disappear when we have 'live' classes.

A live one-on-one class is a different scenario altogether. If you can get live one-on-one class from someone who is an excellent teacher that is a great proposition. Otherwise, never pick a model that promises 'live' classes.

Q. What is the size of the videos? Can we watch it with even a 1MBPs connection?

As we have mentioned elsewhere in this section, our videos on a per-minute basis are about one-fourth of the size of the videos on youtube. So, if you have an internet connection that lets you watch stuff of youtube you can most definitely take this course. Screen capture technology gives us the option of keeping video length short. This is why we have built the entire content on this model.

Q. What technology have you used for the videos?

As far as the online CAT Course is concerned, we have used screen-capture technology for most parts. For recording the videos, we work with a Software called as Blueberry; an alternative Software called Camtasia is also pretty good. Our online tech platform provider is Learnyst. They might use some hi-funda technology to create the platform, but they created a simple enough interface for us to use.
