Taking GMAT after CAT 2019  [#permalink]

Hello everyone,
I took CAT 2019 on 24th November, I am scoring between 125-135, which equates to percentile between 90-96. I am targetting MiM programme of ESCP Europe, ESSEC. I gave CAT for the same as they also accept CAT and I couldn't take GMAT at that moment. As I have read I needed 98%ile with my profile to apply through CAT and I am not going to score that much. I needed help with GMAT prep now. I am thinking to apply for 2nd round/session of admissions of these institutes with deadline in 1st week of January. Is it possible to take GMAT around 15th December with 15 days preparation and if somehow I get desired score in GMAT, is it possible to get done with admission process ( SOP, LOR ) within next 20 days ?

Even I have attempted CAT and can co relate with your experience. It is possible to prepare for and attempt for GMAT IN 15 days because based on your percentile, math will easy for preapring as you have already done basics and lots of practice also. But for verbal you might face difficulty and suggest you to do a diagnostic test or a verbal mock to check how strong you are in it.

Integrated reasoning is very much similar what you solve in DILR and on a much easier scale.
AWA might be new for you but it doesn't add anything to final score but at the same time a good AWA score helps with over all application. There are many post for AWA in GC and going through them before you exam will be enough.

Math is sorted, but try some GMAT questions to get a jist of it. Definetly check where you stand in verbal. IR is similar to DILR but very easy compared to it. AWA needs some review at the very end just before the exam

All the best!

Well, I cannot comment on admission Process.

What I can comment on is GMAT part of it. Since you're coming from CAT and from what I saw the analysis of CAT 2019 you will end up scoring around 93-95 percentile (which is great on it's own), I would yes you can take GMAT with less days of prep (I am not too sure on 15 days).

How about you take an official mock and see where you stand?

Hi Uchiha15,

Many GMATers spend 3 months (or more) of consistent study time before they hit their 'peak' scores, so if you are going to limit your studies to just 15 days, then there will likely be a limit to how high you can score in that time.

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT/mock; you can take 2 for free at www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial practice CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 3.5 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can discuss the results and how you might best proceed with your studies.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) What are the exact application deadlines for each of the Schools that you plan to apply to? Would you consider applying for Round 3?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
