Online CAT Coaching Vs Offline Coaching
Let us also compare CAT Online Coaching with Offline Coaching:

CAT Online Coaching

Off-Line coaching

No commuting required. One can take classes from anywhere in the world

Have to go to the coaching center

Classes through internet system

Have to be present in the class room

One to one interaction Batch size immaterial

If the batch size is large, will be a part of crowd

Facility to go through the recorded class, if the class is missed

Should be present in class, same class may not be repeated.

Time saving

Consumes more time – travelling, batch attendance etc.

Students feeling shy may ask the questions sitting before his/her computer-no one to ridicule at.

Shy ones remain silent for the fear of being ridiculed at.

Every class may be reviewed any number of times

Facility is not available

Absolute punctuality-as class begins on time

The teacher/student may be late. Class will start when the teacher comes; if the student is late, he will miss the session

More cost effective-will save money

Costlier than on-line classes.  Sometimes the difference is more than 5-6 times.

With this huge amount of content available online for CAT preparation, it might get really difficult for you to focus and boil your choices down to a few better ones, so as to follow religiously, as otherwise it may get very complicated and confusing.

 

How to Choose Best Online Coaching for CAT 2020:
Whenever you decide on any online platform, you should always ask for the following things before proceeding to pick one:

  1. Demo Class: In fact, special online CAT Demo classes are designed to give special effects.  It is better to opt for running Demo CAT online class.  You will get a feel of pedagogy, the level of understanding that you may expect from the actual classes. The questions posed by the students in such classes and the answers received by them, will make you form an idea whether to go for it.  If the queries raised by you are duly answered, you will have the satisfaction of selecting the right coaching institution.
  2. Past Results: All institutes claim a lot of good results. Just focus on the ratio of number of good results to the number of enrolled students. Also, try to find out the number of final B-School admits from the same institution.  
  3. Faculty: Find out how motivated the students are in the online CAT classes. If the trainer is able to create interest in the topic and is teaching the topic, which is relevant to the examination, the online CAT classes are serving their purpose.  It is better to interact with the faculty in regard to CAT preparation strategy.
  4. Test series: There should be ample CAT exercises in the online preparation classes. You need to check whether the coaching Institute has full length Mock Tests and can provide the same to you timely. Would the test series be in accordance to the CAT examination pattern? Answers to these questions must be sought and well analyzed before selecting the right online coaching.
  5. Apart from the above, gather the information as to what shall be the number of live sessions, which topic will have more classes, batch size, availability of Doubt clarification classes. To answer such questions, ask for its course module, take some already posted feedback- ask them to send a few feedbacks of different dates to assess the quality. This will help you going for the best available online preparation option.
  6. Be your judge: There is a growing trend for online CAT classes as the aspirants find them more convenient but you will have to judiciously select the right coaching based on above parameters. CAT is one of the most prestigious examinations that pave your way to the best B-schools in India. The examination may not be a cakewalk and would require hard work. You need an online CAT coaching that could make you prepare to perform your level best in CAT 2020.

CAT coaching programs in online mode offer a lot of advantages over conventional classroom programmes. However, as the program is self-driven a few things like Time Management and Self- Motivation need to be taken care of during the course of online coaching. As there would be no faculty member to gauge the performance, so you need to be proactive in clearing doubts also during the virtual class room sessions.
