Under the able guidance from an alumnus of PEC and IIM Indore, students can grow their preparedness for a prestigious professional life with a sense of certainty. They will find IMS Chandigarh conveniently located in the heart of the city’s business district - in Sector 34-A, next to the South Divisional Library which itself attracts a large number of studious individuals. The centre can be reached in 10 minutes from the ISBT in Sector 43, which is diagonally adjacent to Sector 34, making the IMS accessible to even students coming from outside Chandigarh. Even the railway station, which lies outside the city to the south-east, can be reached from the centre within 15 minutes.
“GD-PI is the most important phase of a candidate's B-School admission prep. All the hardwork done to secure a high percentile could go down the drain because of one bad interview. Thankfully, the IMS Chandigarh team was there to guide me during this nerve-wracking phase.
The positive energy of Kapil Sir was infectious. His mantra of ‘Be Yourself’ and ‘Be Positive’ worked like a charm to drain away all the nervousness. Suddenly, the task didn’t seem so daunting anymore. Arijit Sir’s knowledge sessions made me confident about tackling any AWT/WAT thrown my way. CJ Sir’s sharp eyes caught every single rookie mistake we made during the many GD sessions. The entire IMS Chandigarh team acted as a coherent unit, equipping us to handle the varied challenges thrown our way. They were very cooperative, going out of their way to make time for us in their busy schedules. They organized classes to match our convenience. They even conducted a full day class on Republic Day, sacrificing their comforts for our sakes. Kapil Sir was always available to grill us in mock PI or shoot extempore topics at us.
I am very thankful to the entire IMS Chandigarh team for helping me perform to my potential. They believed in me when perhaps even I didn't. I wish them all the best in their future endeavors and hope that many future generations of b-school aspirants continue to benefit from their experience and knowledge.”

"I would like to thank team IMS for their continuous guidance and support. Their test series (SIMCAT) is best in class and must take for every CAT aspirant in my opinion. Moreover the personal attention that one gets at IMS Chandigarh, both pre and post CAT, is really great and is what differentiates them from others. I am extremely grateful to Kapil Sir and the whole IMS team."

“IMS Chandigarh helped me achieve my dream of converting a B-school call. Faculties at IMS Chandigarh center are highly knowledgeable & provide a personalized touch to their mentorship.
As for the mocks, no doubt they are really beneficial . But the way they are segregated based on the difficulty level is just a stroke of genius. Kapil Sir makes sure that each aspirant does not only score 99 percentile but convert their dream school as well. So for this roller coaster of a CAT ride preparation I would strongly recommend IMS Chandigarh to future CAT aspirants.”

“I joined IMS as a test series student in 2018. I had heard from my friends that its SIMCATs are very helpful and they closely resemble the actual CAT pattern. The test series was very useful and it helped me in building my concepts on each and every topic. Initially, the proctored SIMCATs were held once every two weeks, and as the exam dates came closer, it was held once every week. There were take home SIMCATs also provided which we could give at home. Kapil Sir, Arijit Sir, C.J. Sir were always helped out in case of any doubts. After the CAT results were out, I got a call from VGSoM, IIT Kharagpur. I enrolled for the GDPI classes at IMS and they were very helpful. We used to practice mock GDs, PIs and WATs. Kapil Sir guided us on how to prepare for the PI and he made us write the life sketch which helped me prepare answers for a lot of questions. Since I had only applied for VGSoM, I had only one chance to do well in my WAT and PI. I am extremely happy that I converted this call. It was difficult to manage office along with the CAT preparation and IMS Chandigarh has helped me a lot in pursuing my dream.”

My overall experience at IMS has been really great, and as being an engineer I was always weak in english for which Arijit sir helped a lot and made my basics set right in place and guided me through and through at each and every step, I would further like to thank kapil sir who helped me clear my concepts in maths and helped in increasing my speed in paper.
“With more than 2 lakhs candidates in the fray and an acceptance rate of around 0.25% makes IIM-Ahmedabad the most difficult B-School in the world to get into.
At the first glance, it seems impossible but wonders do happen at IMS Chandigarh. I would like to thank the entire IMS Chandigarh team, especially Kapil Sir for guiding me in my CAT preparation. The GDPI preparation under the guidance of Kapil Sir, who himself is an IIM pass out, makes the whole difference.
The GDPI preparation not only helped me in decision making, introspecting things, effective speaking and thinking beyond imagination, which are gonna help me in my entire life, no matter wherever I go.
I strongly recommend IMS Chandigarh to all those students who Wish to pursue a career in management.”
“I took a temporary transfer from my actual IMS Centre to the one in Chandigarh just 2 months before CAT 2018. Being a transfer student, I was extremely surprised (and thankful!) the immense support I received from the entire team at IMS Chandigarh. my experience was at-par with that of any regular student at Ims Chd. Arijit Sir and CJ Sir were a pillar of support until the very last week - the extra study / practice material they provided was a big help in last-moment revision and practice. Not to forget their promptness in helping us with any & all doubts. My one-to-one chats with Kapil Sir really changed the game in terms of my preparation and performance. Even weeks after the exam, he was available for college-related guidance & he is one mentor who will always give you an honest opinionon how you are doing and the best way forward considering your personal strengths and weaknesses.
IMS Chandigarh doesn't seem like an year-old centre. the kind of experience I had here in just 2 months is a clear reflection of the kind of hard-work & patience the team puts into running things here. thank you Kapil Sir and IMS Chandigarh!”
"I joined IMS for the SIMCAT test series for my MBA preparation of CAT 2018. The main reason I chose IMS over others was that it has best faculty that provides personalised guidance throughout the entire journey. IMS Chandigarh was suggested to me by a colleague who converted IIM-C and attributed the success to the impeccable mentorship provided by IMS Chandigarh.
Since CAT is equally about strategy as much as it is about knowledge, the SIMCAT test series provides you an acquaintance with the high pressure test environment. Besides, the application builder helps you in mastering a particular topic. Also, the test builder section provides one with an opportunity to try different strategies and choose one appropriately depending on the difficulty level of the test. To top it all, you get customised tests for other exams such as XAT, SNAP, TISS, etc. which make you familiar to the different test formats.
Post the CAT results, I joined the GDPI course for the interview preparation. At the first day, I realised why IMS Chandigarh GDPI course is highly sought after. It provides you the environment where you get to compete with the best minds in form of case study discussions and debates. The transformation that I see in myself after joining the program is immense. For this I would like to thank Arijit Sir, CJ Sir and most importantly Kapil Sir who has been a mentor in the true sense of the word. The personalised guidance that I received from my mentors helped me improve different aspects of my personality. We had numerous sessions covering GDs, PIs, B-school specific group exercises, extempore, etc. which helped me prepare well for the interviews. I had interview calls from XLRI, NITIE, MDI, SIBM, CAPIIMs, IIT-D among others. XLRI was my best call and I am happy that I converted it. Preparing for CAT and other B-school exams while working at Infosys had its own challenges but the guidance that I received from my mentors at IMS Chandigarh helped me sail through it."

“I joined IMS for it SIMCAT test series for my preparation of CAT 2018. I had given CAT 2017 also but didn't manage to convert a good B-School. The SIMCAT test series gave me an all round exposure to various mock tests of varying difficulties. As you know CAT is an unpredictable exam, you have to be ready for everything. The test series closely resembled the actual CAT exam, which helped me to be ready for the exam.
CAT is not a knowledge based exam, it's a proper strategic exam in which one should know how to manage those 3 hours. If you can keep calm under that pressure, then CAT is not that difficult. IMS prepares you with all that calmness and composure. The faculty over here is extremely friendly and helpful. They take care of everything from your preparation, giving regular updates, mentoring GD-PI sessions and everything that is required to reach a B-school.
I would like to mention that, IMS also held a PRE-CAT exam before the actual CAT exam, it took place in an actual CAT exam center, we are given roll no.s, had to report on time, everything mimicked the actual CAT exam. That experience was really helpful, its like experiencing CAT a month earlier.
I would like to specially thank Kapil Sir, CJ Sir and Arijit Sir who guided me throughout my journey. They have been extremely supportive and their guidance has been really helpful.
I got calls from IIM L, IIM K, IIM S, CAP IIMs, IIFT, MDI and XLRI. IIM L was my best call and I am happy that I converted it. It couldn't have been possible without the efforts of IMS Chandigarh. I am really grateful that IMS helped to achieve my dream.”
"I registered for IMS SIMCAT test series during my preparation for CAT 2018. This test series closely resembles the actual CAT exam, especially the verbal section. The test analysis provided by them is extremely helpful in indentifying weak areas, improving them and making strategies for each individual topic / section. The IMS Pre-CAT gave me chance to experience CAT before taking the D-day (CAT 2018) and helped me adapt to the pressure of actual CAT exam.
As a test series taker, one doesn't expect much interaction with the centre faculties. But starting from the day, I registered for test series, I never felt like I was only test series student. I had constant guidance from Kapil Sir, Arijit Sir and other faculty members. Kapil Sir is an amazing mentor who always try to bring the best in you. He has unique quality of understanding people. We had some amazing discussions not just related to CAT, but also about variety of topics related to political scenario, sports, global events.
The unique thing about IMS Chandigarh is personalised attention they give to every student and multiple doubt clearance sessions on various topics.
Post my CAT result, I joined the GDPI course for my interview preparation. The initial sessions gave us the overview of multiple aspects to cover before our scheduled mock interview sessions. from writing life sketch to giving mock PI's in front of other students elevated my confidence before actual interviews. We had good number of sessions carrying GDs, WATs, group interviews and all other activities which are part of selection process of various institutes. I got interview calls from IIM B, IIM L, MDI, CAP IIMs. IIM B was my best call and I am overwhelmed after converting it. I thank IMS and IMS Chandigarh for helping me achieve my dream and I hope to continue our association in future.
As we know "Journey is much more beautiful than the Destination". I was privileged to have Kapil Sir as my guide during this Journey of preparation which ended beautifully at the place of 'B'."

"I joined IMS Chandigarh for GD/PI program. With calls from all IIMs, I was unsure and nervous about clearing my interviews. I am extremely thankful to Kapil Sir for this constant guidance and motivation which helped me to get into my dream b-school. Mock interviews and GDs with Kapil Sir and CJ Sir helped me gain confidence and improve my thought process. Feedback shared by them was always constructive. I am thankful to IMS for being an integral part of my journey."
