See, explaining this gap will be tough in an MBA interview. I would recommend you get a job right now and prepare for CAT simultaneously. You’ll have a steady source of income, you will get extra points for work-ex in the B-school selection criteria, and you are likely to be grilled less by the interview panel, should you make it till there.
This does not impair your chances of getting into a B-school, because you were not whiling away your time and were preparing for a highly competitive exam.
All the best!
