Pune | Yash Mandhana of Pune gets 99.99 percentile in CAT in first attempt


Mumbai : Policenama onlineYash Mandhana (22) of Pune, who is studying in the final year of engineering in IIT Bombay, has secured 99.99 percentile in the Common Admission Test (CAT).


What is special is he has achieved this success in his attempt in the examination. Admission in Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) takes place on the basis of the score in the CAT exam.


He has given the entire credit of his success to his family. He said he was supported by his family during the six months he spent on studying for the examination. His father is a chemical engineer and his mother is a homemaker.


Speaking about his preparation, he said, “I used to spend two hours every day studying for this exam. Since I have appeared for JEE Mains, Advanced and other competitive exams, I did not find it difficult to prepare for the exam.”


He said that he gave importance to mock tests during the preparation. He said he used to spend two hours every day on mock tests. He used to spend time solving the test paper and analysing the mock tests.


He said he had not prepared a timetable but he used to study every day. Before writing any answer, he used to focus on the points which he knew well.


A student should continue with his studies even if he gets less marks in mock tests instead of getting scared or depressed. He can spend some time on a hobby to cope with the stress of studying, he said.


Yash is fond of Formula 1 racing and exercise and he used to spend time on them during studies. A student can study well if the stress is reduced, he said. Students appearing for a very difficult exam like CAT have to study consistently with focus, he said.


He is thinking of taking admission in IIM Ahmedabad, Bengaluru or Kolkata and is preparing for the next round.
