A B-school isn’t a destination but rather a ladder that will help you reach your dream destination. At the same time to reach your desired B-school, you need to take another ladder and that is the journey of preparation for one of the toughest exams of the country– the CAT exam. It is tough not just because of the difficulty levels of the questions asked but because you need more than just hard work to crack it.

TIME has a very renowned name, and it has earned it, but it has been losing its sheen since a few years. It is also positively pricey and has a huge batch strength, but you should try out a few demo classes before making a decision.
