Testimonials of Past SimCAT takers

< >
  • IMS SimCATs were by far the most comprehensive mock test series for CAT 2016. They had mocks of varying difficulty levels, which helped to test different test-taking skills. One should give loads of mocks - and enjoy them! Aptitude exams are tests of strategy and mocks will help you devise YOUR strategy. There is no unique strategy that works for all. And IMS SimCATs certainly help you build that strategy. Kudos to IMS!

    Avidipto Chakraborty – CAT 2016 - 100%ile
  • The mock tests by IMS were very close to the CAT 2016 paper, especially the Verbal section. Though I did not practice a lot of sectional tests, I can still say that IMS’s tests were way better than that by any other coaching institute! Also, with a lot of good students taking the IMS SimCATsacross India, I was able to gauge my all India performance much better and with more accuracy

    Ashish Jain – CAT 2016 - 100%ile
  • IMS’s mock tests were the best test series in my opinion.They were very representative of the actual CAT in terms of difficulty and subject weightage. IMS had great faculty to help me out with my interviews. Thank you, IMS!

    Nihil Charan Reddy – CAT 2016 - 100%ile
  • SimCAT mock tests by IMS, both proctored and unproctored, have been very helpful in my preparation for CAT 2015. These mocks were very close to the actual CAT 2015 paper and the explanation provided was very thorough as well. It is evident that IMS puts a lot of effortinto making sure that questions in the SimCATs are of top notch quality. I recommend every CAT aspirant to enrol for SimCATs!

    Prateek Bajpai – CAT 2015 - 100%ile
  • The faculty and staff at IMS are very pleasant and helpful. And of course, IMS's test series helped me a lot with my preparation. The SimCATs are true to the nature of the CAT and give a highly realistic preview of the examination.

    Nikhil Nayak - CAT 2015 - 100%ile
  • MS SimCATs are a very helpful tool for CAT preparation. The result and subsequent analyses help in understanding your weaknesses and improve scores tremendously.

    Chirag Jha - CAT 2015 - 100%ile
  • "The most important step in preparing for the CAT is taking mocks. In this area, IMS is unparalleled. Their test series was comprehensive, challenging and cohesive. Additionally, they gave a lot of freedom to students, and I was able to give the test at my convenience, saving me a lot of time and energy. The tests were well structured and had the perfect range of difficulty. The analyses provided after every test were especially helpful. It was like having a guide with you 24x7! I felt the IMS test series were closest to the actual CAT 2015."

    Ruchi Aggarwal - CAT 2015 - 99.99%ile Girl Topper
  • When it comes to the selection process of IIMs, preparation is what decides who makes the cut. In this regard, IMS's Achievers' Workshop is one of the most professional options for GD/PI - WAT preparation. IMS has the experience and the required knowledge about these processes and has what it takes to step up an average candidate into an aspiring manager. The mock GDs and PIs act as practice sessions for the actual ones and the feedback received on making mistakes is what helped me get better.

    Vibhu Gupta - CAT 2014-100%ile
  • I think while preparing for an exam, practice is the most important thing. IMS' mock tests and general test material helped me a lot. The questions and solutions covered almost everything. I also liked the SimCATs a lot as they let me know where I stood in the country. Overall, the verbal section was particularly nice. I think everyone should attempt as many questions as possible and solving a good question bank like this is a must for serious applicants.

    Harshveer Jain - CAT 2014-100%ile
  • I was enrolled in IMS for the CATapult course 2014. The teachers there helped me a lot to plan my studies and also took very insightful classes which went a long way in clearing the doubts I had in my weak areas. I could even contact them over email whenever I wanted and I would get an instant reply. As a result I only had to work hard and keep my focus during the last few months which helped me secure this result. The most important aspect of my preparation was taking and analysing mock tests.
