Here’s why CATKing Educare is an Ideal Choice
CATKing is not just another brick-and-stone coaching institute. It’s a community in itself, where students engage and evolve by growing and working together with the best. It aims to innovate and generate the best possible content in the country and make it accessible to everyone and anyone. It has made a mark in the pandemic year by bringing onboard the best mentors for CAT preparation, Interview preparation, and being present throughout the journey. The organization helps students mark their presence by creating their authentic identities, give them the confidence to have a voice and make their unique choice throughout life.
The core team at CATKing consists of SP Jain, Harvard, IIM, NMIMS, and JBIMS alumni who have aced the management exams- be it CAT, CET, SNAP, XAT, MICAT, NMAT, and more with a 99+ Percentile. It believes a teacher’s journey doesn’t end with just a mere knowledge transfer of the required subjects but it is completed only after his or her mentee has been able to fulfill their dream. Any battle is half won if you believe in it. We strongly believe that everyone needs a strong dose of motivation to drive and help sail through. If you want to be the best, learn from the best. And we in no way compromise on this belief of ours.
The organization extensively uses the online platforms to provide daily live classes, the 40 Days challenge has aced it, a blend of basic to difficult modules for preparation with the study material. With the help of these mediums, the engagement of the students is high as they invest most of their time virtually.
Last-minute preparation is what all Indian kids are known for and hence it offers Live Sprints and Sessions to keep up with the exam study. With CATKing’s innovative mindset and skillset with daily YouTube Live Sessions, it delivers the students a unique learning process from start to end.
“The Dream was to bring in the best trainers and make it available at affordable costs to all those who aspire. I am extremely proud to see the results, we pledged for 1000 IIM converts and we made it with 51 IIM Ahmedabad converts and 100+ going to the Holy Trinity (IIM A B C)”, concludes Sumit.
