CAT-2017 Internship: A unique way to prepare for CAT-2017
‘CAT-2017 Internships’ are officially open now and this is your chance to be a part of this one of its kind program. But what is this internship all about? What do we mean by a ‘CAT Internship’? Well, let’s first settle all your doubts with a quick round of FAQs.
What are these internships all about?
This is one method where we share what we can share best: our knowledge. We believe we can seriously help you with your preparation and help you master the exam.
Why is there no fee for this course?
No, there isn’t. There are no hidden charges.
Why are we doing it?
Simple. You study with us, we guide you and in exchange, you help us make Wordpandit an even more awesome place: quid pro quo.
How would this internship work?
The method of operation is very simple. We select 20 students (after a round of interviews and interaction). We conduct classes for CAT Verbal Ability through Facebook Groups (this is popular medium to study these days). The classes would be held late at night so that everyone can attend. Along with this, the selected students will receive complete mentorship till the time of their admissions.
Why do these internships include only Verbal Ability?
We are Verbal Ability experts who are building up their non-VA content. For this year, we only offer VA classes. But the mentorship will be for the complete CAT syllabus and will also cover the second stage of admissions.
Who is going to take these classes?
Wordpandit, in person. Is he qualified enough? I guess so, he does have a pretty decent record in previous year CAT exams.
Are there any rules for this internship?
There are two simple rules:
a. If you skip classes or miss your homework, you will be asked to leave.
b. If you miss your assigned tasks, you will be asked to leave.
Since all communication is through email and messaging apps, we expect you to be regular with your work and assigned study tasks.
What is the nature of work I am supposed to do?
Your work would revolve around your CAT Prep, that is solving tests, finding errors in them, working on vocabulary material beneficial for your prep and so on. Whatever you do in this internship would be in some way or the other related to your CAT prep.
How long would this internship continue?
The classes for this internship will continue till CAT-2017. Post that, you will receive special sessions for sections such as Decision Making and the second round of admissions, that is, GDs, PIs and Essay Writing.
Would there be another batch this year?
No, there would not be. This is the one and only batch.
