It does not define who you are and will have a marginal impact on your career in the long run. CAT is a standardized test and perhaps one of the best tests in the Indian education system to select the best candidates. It has been going on for decades and has always rewarded students who are

We at Handa Ka Funda (HKF), are not suggesting that the long-duration prep is the only method, but indeed it has its fair share of benefits. Here, we look at some of those reasons below: 1.

I could give an arm and a leg to be in the driver’s cabin of a German ICE train, or the Swiss Lyria, or the Austrian Railjet, or the Italian Frecciarossa, or the Shanghai Magl
