Is Online CAT Coaching Worth it?

Here’s why you should go for it!

It is the teacher who makes the difference, not the classroom.

Learning, whether online or offline, is centred around the teacher. Cracking CAT is easier if you have a teacher who has been there and done that before. The biggest advantage of an Online CAT Coaching course is that it gives you access to the best CAT teaching out there- that highly experienced CAT 100%iler whose fantabulous classes you have heard about can now be your teacher!

Not all Online CAT coaching courses are equal; Content, testing and analytics are key.

Here are some questions which can help you evaluate and choose an excellent Online CAT coaching course:

1) Does the content start from the absolute basics and bring you up to CAT level?
2) Can you learn at your own pace through modularized content?
3) Is it accessible on any device, at any time, anywhere?

Advantages of Classroom coaching are NOT the disadvantages of Online CAT Coaching

When it comes to learning schedules, doubt clarification, peer learning etc., all of these are very much possible to get in an Online CAT Coaching as well.

If you want to know more about this in detail, check out our blog article: Why Online CAT Coaching?

If you are confused between CAT Online Coaching and Classroom CAT Coaching, check out this blog article: Online CAT Coaching Vs Classroom CAT Coaching

Frequently Asked Questions

Do not ask, "Where were you when I was seriously preparing for CAT?” For everything else, we will give it a go.

Is Online CAT Coaching worth it?
It’s definitely worth it. Saves you a lot of time as it does not involve travelling. You can learn anytime anywhere from the best teacher at the institute. It is also very affordable (Self-paced courses are half the price of classroom coaching). If you are someone who needs motivation to study and teacher interaction, take Live Online CAT Coaching. If you are someone who can study on your own then go for Self-paced Online CAT Coaching.

Read this blog article to know more about Online CAT Coaching - Is CAT Online Coaching Worth it?

Check out all of them here: - Free Online CAT Resource
Can a weak student crack cat?
Of course! Students preparing for CAT fall into this myth of CAT is an exam only geniuses can crack. That is not true. The only way for anyone to do well in CAT is consistent and planned preparation. It is as simple as that. The only difference when it comes to a weak student is that they might have to put in lot more effort than the others. That is very much possible if you start your preparation today and study for 3 hours every day. Read this blog article to know more about this - Can a weak student crack CAT Exam?
How many CAT Attempts are allowed?
CAT does not have a limit on the number of attempts or age. You can write CAT exam as many times as you want. But when it comes to getting an admission into IIMs, having 2 to 4 years of work experience is the sweet spot and the maximum number of attempts you can take for being in that sweet spot is 5 attempts.
Can CAT be cleared without coaching?
Every year there are a bunch of students who clear CAT without any coaching. If you are naturally good at Math and English, then it is definitely possible to do that. If you are not one of those people, then taking CAT Coaching makes more sense as it helps you structure your preparation and gives mentorship to help you clear this exam as well as for your Interview Preparation. You can either choose CAT Online coaching or Classroom CAT coaching depending on your preference.
Is Youtube enough for CAT preparation?
Youtube is one of the best resources for free cat preparation. You will get tons of questions for practice and live sessions to learn certain topics. Youtube can be a very good supplementary resource, but it is not enough for CAT preparation.

Check out our Youtube channel where we have 160k+ subscribers, 500+ live sessions, 2500+ videos, 100 playlists - 2IIM YT
Which time is best for CAT Coaching?
The ideal time for CAT preparation would be somewhere around 9 to 12 months. Having said that, the important part is not the number of months but the amount of effort that you are willing to put in. Even if you have 6 months for CAT exam, you can still crack it if you get your act right. According to us the best time for CAT Preparation would be NOW!!
How much percentile is required to get into IIMs?
Getting calls from IIMs is one thing but getting admissions in IIMs is another thing. This depends on variety of factors starting from your category, gender, your academic performance in 10th,12th and UG, Work Experience, your performance in interviews etc. Generally, you will be required to get 99.5+%ile to get calls from IIM A,B, C and around 95%ile to get calls from new IIMs.
How to use the 2IIM CAT Online Preparation Course?
The 2IIM Online Preparation Course runs on a fabulous Learning Management System (LMS). The navigation is freakishly user-friendly. Sign up as a trial user and spend 10-minutes to figure out how the learning process works. This Youtube Video gives a detailed outline on how to go about navigating the course.
What is the difference between Green Course and Live Online CAT Preparation Course at 2IIM?
The 2IIM Online Course runs on a fabulous Learning Management System (LMS). The Green course delivers everything through slides, bite sized videos and tests put together in a structured format. The Live Online class aims to complete the entire syllabus through Live classes scheduled at max 5 times a week, in addition to providing pre-recorded classes as a backup incase one misses the live sessions. Live course also gets you a set of 9 books shipped to your postal address anywhere in India.
Is 2IIM's Online CAT Coaching alone sufficient to crack the CAT 2024?
Most definitely, yes. The online CAT preparation 2024 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 CAT Online Coaching Course will be sufficient for CAT 2024 preparation on a standalone basis. One need not use any other material for preparation.
Can we view the videos more than once in the CAT 2024 CAT Preparation Online Class?
Yes. Each video can be viewed any number of times as long as your Online CAT Coaching course is valid. We do not believe in constraining to some x number of views like few players available in the market for CAT Online Preparation.
The Live Online CAT Preparation 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 CAT Online preparation 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.
You claim to be the Best Online Coaching for CAT. 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 CAT Preparation 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 Bachchan 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 CAT online coaching. 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...
How do we get our doubts clarified on the CAT Online Preparation Course?
Any questions related to any part of the CAT course, you can post on the discussion forum and one of us will reply within 48 hours (usually). Other queries can be posted on our Facebook Group. All students who have enrolled are invited to become part of WhatsApp groups where all the faculty members are also present. Any student can post queries on this group as well. Apart from this, the more old-fashioned methods of email and phone are also available. We will strive to answer every meaningful query on every platform. The key word here is “meaningful”.

You state repeatedly that the Online CAT Coaching Course has been designed to help one learn at one's own pace. How so?
The online CAT Coaching 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 inside the CAT 2024 - Online CAT preparation. 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 the student 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 in Online CAT preparation 2024.

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 2IIM's online CAT coaching.
Till what date is the online CAT coaching valid?
The 2IIM CAT Online coaching for CAT 2024 is valid till Jan 2025 (so you should be covered till XAT 2025). Any student wishing to extend the duration of the course can contact us at 99626 48484. Any upgrades or additions we do in the course will be available to everyone.
Does 2IIM offer live sessions?
Most Definitely Yes. Our Live Online CAT Coaching class is based our of live sessions that happen throughout the week. You can find all the required details about the same here in this page. We offer to cover the entire syllabus through live sessions. We also provide our Online course at no additional cost to our Live CAT Coaching students.
How many video lectures are there in a 2IIM CAT Online Coaching course?
The Beauty of the best course is to teach oneself as much as possible with the least possible number of videos and questions. When there is a possibility to master any topic and crack those CAT questions by just learning 100 questions well, what is the need for one to do 600? But, anyways here is the textbook answer - It has probably 2000 videos, 10000 slides, and probably more than 10000 questions all discussed in great length and detail. Nearly 20% of the course is available for free. Try out a few classes. We are sure that you will have a crystal clear idea of what the actual course comprises once you see the freely available content. “Try before You Buy”

What is the eligibility for CAT exam?

3. Candidates in their final year of Graduation are also eligible to apply. A student who finishes diploma and then pursues UG is also eligible.

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.
What technical specifications does my machine need for the CAT Online course?
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.

Through 2IIM Online CAT preparartion's Mobile app , you will be able to save classes for offline viewing when your internet is stable, and learn from cached content when connectivity gets dicey.

Are you not worried that someone will mimic the Best Online Coaching for CAT?
We are very generous that way.
Jokes apart, the largest value in the online CAT preparation 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 course content.
We have built the entire Online CAT coaching 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.
What is CAT Exam?
Many before us have mulled over this and many after us presumably will. This is an ocean unto itself, so we have dedicated a whole new page to this.
