REALLY NEED HELP
Can I take up CAT exam given I am already pursuing my MBA first year from another college. Assuming I score a good percentile, won't that be a drawback. I really need suggestions
Yes, you can take the exam. It will although mean that you will waste an year of your current MBA and the resources you have spent on it.
Once you reach PI after giving CAT, you can justify why you left your previous b-school on grounds of better performance of the b-school you will be sitting for in the PI. That will not be a big problem.
