For some aspirants scoring 99 per cent is not enough in Common Admission Test and they prepare harder to achieve a perfect 100.
IIT Delhi graduate Akshay Mehndritta is one such candidate who followed his instincts and a strategy to get 100 percentile in this year’s CAT exam.
The target was admission in coveted IIM Ahmadabad. In this second attempt at CAT, Mehndritta managed to get an overall score of 228.98 with a 100 in overall percentile.
While working as a consultant at a private company in Gurgaon, Mehndritta managed to balance between his CAT preparation and office work.
The last time he appeared for CAT, he attempted a test series for about three months and managed to score 99.34 percentile. This gave him the motivation to try his luck again.
While it has become a norm for engineers to either appear for civil services or MBA examination to get that edge over others, Akshay believes that giving CAT was one of the prerequisites to stand in the market and improve his market value.
