Recapitulation of Devang’s journey in his own words:
My name is Devang Roongta and I am from Pune. I did my electrical engineering from IIT Roorkee and have been working in IT sector for 30 months. I wanted to switch my career from IT to Finance and work as Equity Research Analyst. Therefore, I started preparing for CAT 2016. I don’t have prior experience of CAT, as this was my first attempt. CL classroom program helped me a lot with its study material, online test series and good faculty. I would especially like to thank Hitesh Sir in CL Pune center which is because of him I scored 99.86 percentile in LRDI and Quant.
Career Launcher is beneficial for every kind of student preparing for CAT. The material is divided into levels 1, 2, 3 according to the difficulty level so it covers every student, whether he or she is a fresher or a repeater. Also CL percentile predictor predicted my percentile 99.8 which was very close to my actual score. I would recommend Career Launcher to every CAT aspirant, as the study material and the sheets in classroom are of high quality and there is sufficient study material for practice. Faculty is really good and available 24*7. I used to WhatsApp my questions and instantly got answers, so they are very helpful. My advice to the future CAT aspirants is to give as much tests as possible (minimum 30) and to give equal time to all sections.CAT is all about selection of questions. Also, be aware of the interview process because scoring well in CAT is only half of the journey and the journey is too long.”
