Hello Inside IIM team! All thanks to your blogs, videos related to CAT and XAT, which helped me a lot. Especially scoring around 80 percentile in VARC in CAT (although overall being 99+), I wasn't happy that much about my VARC scores. And then this 1 month gap, i followed your blogs which constantly motivated me throughout this journey. And thus led to this! Thanks a lot ❤️. And thus led to 99 percentile around in VARC with overall of 99.3. Thanks a lot to inside IIM team.

Hi team! Kanthan this side. I have seen a lot of your youtube videos when I was preparing for CAT and some of them have really motivated me in my prep journey. I have gotten a decent score of 99.45 percentile (99.66/98.5/94) in CAT 21 and believe some of the credits should go to you guys. Thanks a lot! If you need any help from my side, please feel free to ping me up.

If we look back at the time when the websites were only limited to CAT Percentile cutoff, intake capacity, fees, and placement reports of the top Bschool, InsideIIM has lived up to its name. This is the first website to talk about what goes inside a Bschool. This platform has given us a lot of insights around types of careers, placement processes, and also beyond Bschool. Also, InsideIIM reinforces the person's purpose of 'Why MBA?'. Also, it prepares us beforehand for the beginning of Bschool.
