How to prepare for WAT/GDPI?

The game only levels up post your CAT Attempt. There are 3 more challenges on the way to your MBA Dream, and we will list them out here. First comes the WAT or the 'Written Ability Test'. This is the first phase of the post-CAT selection process. As the name suggests, it is a round where the candidate will be required to write an essay on a given topic within the word limit prescribed. To know more, head on to this page.

Group Discussion (GD) is the next phase, following up the Written Ability Test (WAT). If WAT tested how you are able to think about an idea and articulate it coherently well, GD goes one notch above and beyond. It tests how well you are able to put forth your thoughts in a team setting. Click here to know more about how to crack this phase.

The last phase is the PI (Personal Interview). The Personal Interview is set to test your persona, psyche and how well you fare under different circumstances. We've compiled a bunch of informative videos and information within this page to help you ace your PI.

Let’s talk CAT 2022

It is not too early to start preparation. If you took CAT 2021 merely as a precursor to CAT 2022, then it is about time to start thinking about a pleasant 1-year preparation cycle. If you are not already one, sign up as a trial user to the 2IIM Online Course and see why so many students say so many good things about us ( review link here )

2IIM’s CAT 2021 online students can renew the course at very reasonable rates. The price for renewal is pegged at a level where students pay the difference between our current 2022 price point and what they have paid already. Effectively, for students who are renewing the course, the price for preparation for CAT 2021 and CAT 2022 would be merely the price for CAT 2022 (In other words CAT 2021 prep came for free).
