How To Find The Right Coaching Institute?

All the aspirants who want to crack one of the most sought after MBA entrance exam CAT to enter into one of the premier B schools in the country and are energetic about joining coaching institutes for CAT preparation to boost their performance in the exam may be befuddled, what with the plenty of alternatives around. With each coaching institute exhibiting itself to be in a way that one is better than the other, there are a few components one needs to thoroughly consider before picking one.

Time and Location: 

You first need to check how much time you can devote to your coaching. Especially if you are a working professional, it will particularly be a worry as going to coaching classes will require a regular schedule to be followed by an Aspirant. 

The location of a coaching institute should be near your house. Do not waste too much time travelling. If no good classes are present nearby, go for an online class. In this way, if time and location are your significant concerns, you can check and think about the circumstance and schedule of the online/offline coaching classes offered by numerous institutes. 

Check the Basics: 

You must check the essential factors of a coaching centre first. For instance, the number of classes, which, batch size, doubt- clearing sessions, and course module. 

The candidates getting ready for CAT, first need to comprehend and understand the Pattern and Formation of CAT assessment. 

You can get brief program details of various coaching classes and then further scan them to get a review of their expected teaching. You can likewise take online/offline feedback from your peers and collate their experience that they went through in CAT preparation from a coaching institute. This will most likely be able to assist you in making the right choice for a good institute. 

Additionally check, does the coaching Institute have how many Mock Tests (proctored and non-proctored), CAT and non- CAT exams (which exams and how many)? Would the test pattern be aligned with the actual CAT assessment pattern and design? Answers to these questions must be looked for and should be analyzed in choosing the correct coaching. 

Size of the batch:

Ask completely about the size of the group. Many coaching centres have enormous batches (at times running into two or three hundred students all at once) thus what endures is individual attention. Comprehending explicit individual questions can turn into an issue. It additionally makes it hard for students to move toward employees. On the off chance that you require individual attention, in that case, join a coaching class that has a smaller group of students. 

Approach if you are qualified for any of the special batches dependent on your performance on records of tests, or the scholarship tests which are conducted by some institutes. This will help you as it will make you avail the services of quality teaching as a result the aspirant quality will improve.

Online Support for resources:

Now as we know the current pandemic situation has made us take the leverage of technology and hence all the offline resources are now shifted to the online platform. So, If the coaching institute does not have an online presence it will be difficult for the aspirant to be at the top on their preparation so aspirants should check this aspect also while selecting an institute. Most of the coaching centres have their website and discussion forums. The aspirants should go through that and ask them if there will be any newsletters or tests on the site.


Coaching expense is one of the main factors that impact your decision. Check the package that suits your affordability. Searching for the best package that you cannot bear the cost of will just bring about burning through your valuable time. 

Nevertheless, a coaching institute charging extreme expense, simply because of its image name may not be the favoured one. Then again, a coaching centre maybe two-three years old, however, it might have specialists that may be superior to the coaching places running for long. Regardless of being a superior alternative, the upgraded one may charge you less. Hence, make a definite detailed online search on the fee structure for your choices available. 

Reputation and available Experts: 

Before choosing a coaching institute, you ought to essentially check their academic background, achievement proportion, and the sort of tutors accessible with the centre to instruct you. 

All the coaching centres guarantee a ton and at some point, even mislead candidates aspiring to clear these competitive exams (CAT and other management exams). Suppose, a coaching centre – on-line or offline is irrelevant – imparted training to 70,000 aspirants in a session and 1% got decent percentile, on the other hand, there is a coaching institute that prepared 1000 odd students and 10% got an excellent percentile – think accordingly and choose wisely.

Additionally, discover the accessibility of mentors with the centre who will guide you on various segments in the preparation journey. To find out about your instructors, you can even demand Demo classes. It is smarter to settle on running Demo class so you may get a vibe of coaching technique and the degree of understanding that you may get. The questions presented by the students in such classes and the appropriate responses got by them, will make you structure a thought whether to put it all on the line. If you are satisfied by the way the teacher is guiding and responding in the class, then you can make a choice and go ahead by making a wise choice. 

Find your best-fit Prep Package: 

Before finally choosing a coaching institute, you ought to analyze your colleague with the CAT syllabus and level of preparation. As per that you can select your package that will best- fit you.

Distinctive Coaching places offer various bundles with a blend made from among customary classes, print material, a delicate duplicate of the material, question clearing meetings, Group Discussion (GD),

Personal Interview (PI), Mock Test Series, Interaction with the toppers and so forth Picking a correct blend as per your need will save your money as well as time.

I wanted to join a coaching where I can get personalised attention and competitive environment. I got both in MBAP. All the preparation was so rigorous that I eventually started giving my best. They conducted mock interviews/GD/WAT with anonymous panels and trust me it was such a confidence booster. I got a call from SCMHRD (SNAP-98.12) However I always wanted to go for IIM and Abhijeet sir felt that and he convinced me to try again and aim for IIM-A/B/C. Here I am back under his mentorship again. In short give your best and they will bring the best out of you. P.S- I'm a working individual. If I can do it then anybody can. Thank you for being such a great mentors.

I joined MBAP for GMAT prep and my experience with them was really amazing, from the first day itself the faculties gave personal attention to each student and made sure each student had their own personalised GMAT and CAT prep plans. The Verbal faculty Rohan Kulkarni Sir was amazing, I was very weak in English and verbal section, but through his guidance I scored a V38 (85th percentile) in my GMAT exam. The Quant faculties Abhijeet and Haider Sir helped me develop strategies and short cuts to approach GMAT problems and we're always available for my doubts. Overall it was a great experience and I would reccomend MBAP to everyone for GMAT and CAT prep
