Straight Angle™: Another Year, another CAT
Sunday, November 20, 2005
Well, as I hear from my friends, on the recent CAT(Common Admission Test), I tend to get a feeling that, the CAT is becoming more transparent by the day and that the day is not far off, when CAT can be taken online, just like GMAT.
Yesterday, Prof Bakul Dholakia, Director, IIMA, was on NDTV, answering questions on GMAT like Online CAT and what he said, provides somepointers in that direction. HE said it in so many words, that though, the aspirants can't look forward for an online version next year, the option is very well on the table and, yet no decision had been arrived at...
Though, I understand the massive preparations that had to go into CAT, I also wonder, what stops them from making a decision fast?..These are the same people, who teach, the cost of indecision is often much larger than the cost of wrong decision!..What had happened to what they teach? For how long are they going to postpone the decision- Yeah, that is what it is...it is no doubt, that taking CAT online is one great inevitable, then why is that not happening?
Let us look at the possible issues that might be solved through having an online version!
But, to say a last, lasting word, I think this year's CAT was indeed tough( by many standards- be it the explicit note that the negative marking is gonna be 1/4th or in the toughness of the DI and Quants questions!)
The one statement that my friend made, when I asked him about the CAT, still rings in my ears and makes me laugh my lungs out, but I know, it wasn't so for him!
I hadn't seen such circles before!- Man, they were circular!
~In his own words!
Update at 02:56 PM:
Another thing (surprisingly) that I noted yesterday, is that, there is an increasing clout for MBA/IIMs.While it is good for a craving for higher education, I am afraid MBA, might end up as Engineering did in TN.
I heard a particular guy tell in TV(of all SS Music), that he wanted to get into MBA, so that, he will get a corporate job and make things that will serve the public!...Did I hear it right?...
I think serving public was a preserve of the IAS. This guy is either ignorant of the MBA or has very high dreams, or plain simply lying!
You can argue that Corporates too can serve the Society...but just think over...it is not the motive of a corporation..The motive there, is money...n Profit...they wouldnt do community service, without a motive- rather they shouldnt do..that is not what the investors in the company would want!
