CAT Challenge 2017
The biggest challenge for CAT aspirants!

At IMS, we believe in offering a truly accurate representation of the CAT to our students. That’s why even our students say the SimCAT is the closest to CAT.

But what if a student wants to challenge himself? To see how good they are, to test their concepts and application skills? What if they want to compete against the best brains in the country, whether from engineering or non-engineering backgrounds, in the race for the CAT?

The CAT Challenge: An open challenge from IMS to all CAT aspirants


The test has been specially designed by the best minds at IMS, to ensure that it will truly be a test of your concepts. The CAT Challenge mirrors the CAT in all respects: in terms of structure, test platform, pattern, etc, but at a more challenging difficulty level.

The CAT Challenge is taken by students from the IITs and top engineering institutes and others in the country. So measure your CAT prep by challenging the toppers, and go up against those who make it to the top 1000 in the CAT!
