Mihir Toradkar – NMIMS
I think their strategic approach for exam and highly energetic & motivated faculties make CATKing different from other institutes. One should definitely join CATKing. I highly appreciate personal mentorship of Rahul sir and Anisha ma’am.
Heartly thanks to Rahul sir for helping me convert NMIMS 2017
CatKing has been my best companion for all the competitive examinations such as CAT, NMAT, SNAP…etc.
Its user-friendly Student Dashboard helped me navigate easily through various course materials and videos compiled by them. Also, we had Verbal Wednesdays (special VA booster workshop) by Rahul sir to make sure that every student gets deeper knowledge about the Verbal Ability subject. Also, we were taught and mentored by notable alumnus from IIMs, NMIMS, JBIMS to name a few which really helped a lot to understand the concepts of every subject as well as making sure that the students remained engaged throughout their preparation.
Karan Ved, Nmims Mumbai
If you are looking for an extensive CAT preparation course that should include practice questions, sectional mocks, full-length mocks, strategy videos, and mock analysis sessions then you should go for CATKing’s CAT Course.
A plethora of study material raging from videos, practice questions, and exam-taking strategies for all three sections. Designed with the best insights and strategies from experienced CAT takers.
Gagan Makkar , NMIMS Hyderabad
A Coaching class much more than just teaching you, it’s about guiding, helping, changing strategies according to different exams, profile building, preparing you for your interviews by taking mock sessions and finally making you believe that you can score and convert your respective calls.I feel CATKING is the name when u keep all the above things in mind. Trust me i have experienced it myself and hence i respect Rahul sir and his entire team as they really take efforts and pains to ensure that u make through and yes, i did make it through.
Akshit Batheja,NMIMS Mumbai 2017 CONVERT (NMAT 216)
These Mocks helped me making it to the NMIMS. Thanks to Rahul Sir verbal was a cakewalk and helped me to crack NMAT. CATKing made me understood that it is all about smart work and positivity rather than donkey work and no achievements.
Shruti Singhal – NMIMS
I have been associated with CATKing since I began my journey; since then it has been nothing short of wonders. Coming from a Commerce background I was not particularly strong in Quants/DI or verbal either but the faculty at CATKing helped me gain excellence in these topics at ease especially Ekagra sir’s quants shortcuts. My journey in cracking top MBA entrance exams is incomplete without mentioning Rahul Sir who has been constant support and pushing me and believing in me that i can achieve great scores.He has been a true mentor and motivation in this Journey.Last but not the list I would like to thank all the CATKing faculties for their esteemed support.
Vaibhav Shah – IIM Shillong, NMIMS & MICA
I am grateful to Anisha Ma’am & Rahul Sir for guiding me throughout my NMAT CDPI preparation part which was closely monitored and it was made sure that we get feedback to improve after every mock which in turn got me finally selected. Regarding Test series, the best part is individual subject test series which is something that enables you to crack the exam as a whole. Forever thankful to further telling me that I can make it to NM this very year.
Poorva Mangal, NMIMS Mumbai
The night class sessions by Anisha ma’am and Rahul sir for CD/PI and SOP verification were really a game-changer for my preparation and the video lectures for Hygiene questions were designed. Thanks a lot, CATKING for making my journey a success.
Pavan Manu Rajesh Sreerama, NMIMS Mumbai
I started preparing for NMAT 3 and picked up Mocks and NMAT Maximizer post my CAT seriously. Mocks are Realistic and helped me sail the cut offs! Apart from the mocks major credit goes to Anisha Ma’am and Rahul Sir for providing the right guidance and making us do smart work instead of hard work.
Raj Shah – NMIMS
Big thanks to Rahul Sir, Anisha Ma’am and entire CATKing team. I was very fortunate to make it to NMIMS. The tips and tricks given by all the faculty were quite helpful. The best part of preparation was the GDPI. We not only learnt but also enjoyed every bit of it.
Kushagra Verma – NMIMS
the excellent coaching staff coupled with flexible class timings and convinient locations of classroom centres definitely overpowers other institutions. The study material provided is more than enough for cracking almost all National Level Management exams. The online study portal with number of mocks give you a real exam feel.
Another positive aspect of CATKing is that, unlike other institutions, they do not solely concentrate on CAT. They give due importance to various other exams like NMAT, MICAT, SNAP, CET, and International exams like GRE, GMAT to name a few.
Akshat Bhargava, NMIMS Mumbai(NMAT – 220)
CATKing has been a very good experience for me. Apart from the written exams the GD-PI trainings were the most rigorous and the most effective. For GDPI they have a complete cheat sheet ready for all the questions that may come to you. Overall it was a very nice experience and thanks to CATKing I made it to NMIMS.

CATKing played a major role in my path to success. Special thanks to Rahul Sir for guiding me throughout in this journey. My success mantra: if you think and believe that you can do it, you will! This helped me boost my confidence.
Deepak Harjani – IIM Rohtak, SP Jain, IIFT, NMIMS Mumbai (Calls)
I enjoyed very bit of time studying at CATKing, yes there was always pressure before the crucial exams however, Rahul sir and CATKing team was always ready and accessible to resolve all of them.
Rudranshu Samanta – NMIMS
CATking has not only helped me to achieve my goal and get into NMIMS but also helped me grow as a person. They honored their words and supported me throughout the process from studying for the exam to interview of the college. They are not just teachers but mentors that guided me to the path of a successful career. The mocks interviews and group discussions showed me the level of competition and also helped me be a better version of myself. I would give all the credits of my success to Anisha Mukhija and Rahul Singh who was always there and never said no to me whenever required help. Thanks a lot!
Bhavini Jain , NMIMS
To me, CATKing was more of a push that I desperately needed to get on a definitive track. Anisha Ma’am was the one who told me about MICA when I first met her, and MICA became my dream from that day on. Even though I felt Quant lectures were slow for me sometimes (in an absolute sense, this means that they were keeping it as simple as they could so that majority of the class would be able to grasp), I would still attend each one of them because there were professors who gave some brilliant tricks and hacks to solve problems in Number Systems, Geometry, and Algebra. These tricks really sped me up wrt Quants.
Rukhsar Khan,MICA Convert
I was a CATKing Online student. Many of you will be supporting the fact that online students do not get much attention from coaching institutes. But trust me guys this was not the situation in my case. The amount of support I got from Anisha maam and Rahul sir was amazing. They were undoubtedly the best mentors who helped me clear all my doubts and uplift my confidence before the exams.
Moreover the mock tests they provide have pretty good content. If one practices all the type of questions available in the mocks, he/she is bound to get most of the question types common in the exam. The patterns are also similar to the respective exam.
Rohan Chatterjee, NMIMS Mumbai
It was a great journey at CATKing. The faculty here are highly knowledgeable, dedicated and never hesitate to explain a concept any number of times, till we are clear with it. Also, the guidance during the GD/PI process was awesome and very informative to crack the PI round. The mock interviews were very helpful. I can vouch for the quality of teaching by the faculty. Their support and input was of great help during the GD/PI process. I believe that they have a large contribution to my NMIMS and IMT conversion. Thanks a lot Rahul Sir, Anisha Ma’am and the entire CATKing team and I hope you help make many other dreams come true.
Anjali Lalani – NMIMS
I have been a student with CATKing and appeared for NMAT as NMIMS was my dream university. As they promised to me, they helped me convert my exam first by clearing my basic concepts. For Verbal, Rahul Sir made studying verbal extremely easy. Verbal was my weakness which he turned into my strength. Here, you’ll not only get MBA entrance preparation but also profile-building strategies. The faculty at CATKing is absolutely awesome and one shouldn’t hesitate at all to join CATKing!
So undoubtedly, CATKing is the place a serious MBA aspirant should be at.
Ankita Parekh,NMIMS Bangalore
As Rahul Sir rightly says, “To be the best, you have to be around the best peers”. At CATKing, I have been with people who are better than the best. CATKing has helped me not only in cracking my entrance exams, but also in growing as a professional. The amount of time they invested in us for preparing for the group discussions and personal interviews is unmatchable. End result, I got through NMIMS and now I am branded for life.
CATKing has played an important role in my success; they helped me gain a lot of confidence whenever I was feeling low or pressure about the exams. All the faculty were also very helpful at every point.
Purva Kamat – NMIMS
I had taken CATKing last year and i think i made the right decision as i am now pursuing MBA at NMIMS. also cracking other exams like IIFT SNAP was only possible due to the strategies I learnt in CATKing which I think was a differentiating factor. I owe a lot to Rahul Singh sir for motivation and pep talk apart from his awesome teaching and his strategies ofcourse. Also I would like to mention the GDPI sessions in CATKing were very informative and helped me crack many interviews. Thanks CATKing once again for all the help.
