Who teaches in 2IIM CAT Online Coaching Course?

Our teachers take the CAT every year.

Rajesh Balasubramanian

Rajesh Balasubramanian is an Electrical Engineer from IIT, Madras, Class of 2001 and completed his PGDM from IIM Bangalore in 2003. He runs 2IIM's CAT program and has built most of the content for the 2IIM CAT Online Course. As the person responsible for content generation, he greatly values the experience of taking CAT and has taken it every year since 2010.

He scored 100th percentile in CAT 2011, CAT 2012, CAT 2014 and CAT 2017. Rajesh scored 99.77 in CAT 2018, 99.99th percentile in CAT CAT 2019 and 99.98th percentile in CAT 2020. He likes few things more than teaching Math and insists to this day that he is a better teacher than exam-taker.

Rajesh also runs PiVerb - an Ed-Tech company that focuses on teaching math intuitively to students from class V to class X. Prior to his stint in Education, Rajesh spent a few years as a banker, a fact that he is distinctly not proud of.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do not ask us “Where were you when I was seriously preparing for CAT?” For everything else, we will have a go.

How to use the 2IIM CAT Online Preparation Course?
The 2IIM Online Preparation Course runs on a fabulous Learning Management System (LMS). The navigation is freakishly user-friendly. Sign up as a trial user and spend 10-minutes to figure out how the learning process works. This Youtube Video gives a detailed outline on how to go about navigating the course.
What is the difference between Green Course and Live Online CAT Preparation Course at 2IIM?
The 2IIM Online Course runs on a fabulous Learning Management System (LMS). The Online course delivers everything through slides, bite sized videos and tests put together in a structured format. The Live Online class aims to complete the entire syllabus through Live classes scheduled at max 5 times a week, in addition to providing pre-recorded classes as a backup incase one misses the live sessions. Live course also gets you a set of 10 books shipped to your postal address anywhere in India.
Is 2IIM's Online CAT Coaching alone sufficient to crack the CAT 2021?
Most definitely, yes. The online CAT preparation 2021 course offers clear explanation for all the key concepts. The study material gives ample room for practice and the mock CAT series gets you geared for the actual exam. When we started the course, we thought people might view it as a supplement. We have been surprised by the fact that nearly 90% of the students have used the online course exclusively for their CAT preparation.

The CAT Online Coaching Course will be sufficient for CAT 2021 preparation on a standalone basis. One need not use any other material for preparation.
Can we view the videos more than once in the CAT 2021 CAT Preparation Online Class?
Yes. Each video can be viewed any number of times as long as your Online CAT Coaching course is valid. We do not believe in constraining to some x number of views like few players available in the market for CAT Online Preparation.
The Live Online CAT Preparation pack that you provide has study material, online CAT course and mock CATs. Is the "Study Material" a replica of the online course?
The study material that we ship is different from the CAT Online preparation course. The study material provides practice questions for all the topics and ideas discussed in the online course. The study material is not a replica; it is entirely different from what is provided online.
You claim to be the Best Online Coaching for CAT. How do you know this?
This one is easy. In our minds, we are probably the only one offering an Online CAT Preparation Course. We offer slide-decks, videos, check-point quizzes and CAT-Level Tests. Most products available are either test series, e-books or recorded classroom lectures. In our mind, none of these qualify as an online course. Online CAT Preparation has to involve more than reading a bunch of PDFs on a laptop.

Any recorded video of length more than 15 minutes is more or less worthless. Research tells us that people struggle to watch even entertainment videos if they are more than 12 minutes long. (Imagine that, if one struggles to watch Amitabh Bachchan for 12 minutes, what are odds of watching a tutor in a 60 minute long video?).

We have spent an inordinate amount of time and energy in designing this CAT online coaching. At every stage, we have worn the hat of a student and brought in the technology that works for each specific idea. The starting point has been the student requirement, and not the technology. This is why we went down the route of using screen capture videos and not live videos. Screen capture videos de-emphasize the teacher and bring the content to the forefront. (This hurts us while trying to market the product). But screen capture gives us two massive advantages - 1) Video size is small. Our videos on a per-minute basis are about one-fourth of the size of the videos on youtube. So, if you have an internet connection that lets you watch stuff of youtube you can most definitely take this course and 2) We can write equations and use a digital pen to highlight key ideas without worrying about camera focus...

How do we contact 2IIM Online CAT Coaching in case we need some more information?
You can drop us an email at prep@2iim.com or give us a call at 99626-48484. Or, you can chat with us (during specific office hours) from the chat window on this website.
You have disclosed the tech provider, technology and given all the information up front here. Are you not worried that someone will mimic the Best Online Coaching for CAT?
We are very generous that way.
Jokes apart, the largest value in the online CAT preparation course sits in the pedagogy. The value lies in
1) the way we have created the course,
2) the people who have created the course and
3) the quality of the course content.
We have built the entire Online CAT coaching content with a team of 3 teachers. They have distilled years of teaching experience to come up with a well-thought out pedagogy that uses technology well. We have not used technology for the sake of using some fancy bits. We have found the tech pieces that the course demanded, not the other way around. That value which our teachers bring to the table cannot be replicated easily.
How do we get our doubts clarified on the CAT Online Preparation Course?
Any questions related to any part of the CAT course, you can post on the discussion forum and one of us will reply within 48 hours (usually). Other queries can be posted on our Facebook Group. All students who have enrolled are invited to become part of WhatsApp groups where all the faculty members are also present. Any student can post queries on this group as well. Apart from this, the more old-fashioned methods of email and phone are also available. We will strive to answer every meaningful query on every platform. The key word here is “meaningful”.

You state repeatedly that the Online CAT Coaching Course has been designed to help one learn at one's own pace. How so?
The online CAT Coaching Course at 2IIM has been constructed as a mixture of slide-decks, videos and quizzes. An average class that is pegged to be covered in, say, around 2.5 hours for the above-average student will comprise of ~80 slides interspersed with around 8-10 videos. The videos are all of 4-10 minutes length and each video focuses on a separate idea. So, if a student is comfortable with 5 of the 8 ideas discussed in the topic, he/she can skip these videos. Student can get to each subsequent slide by pressing "Next" and the speed is entirely governed by the student.

Apart from this, there are on an average two checkpoint quizzes per topic, each with 6-8 questions inside the CAT 2021 - Online CAT preparation. These are simple practice questions to help consolidate the idea. For these also, detailed slide-deck presentations are available, but the student has the option of skipping these if she is comfortable with the question.

Beyond this, there is a timed Prep-Edge quiz that gives questions at the level of difficulty seen in CAT. These also come with detailed slide-deck solutions. Some of the trickier ones have video solutions as well. Student can choose to skip the solution, rush through the slides, or listen to the videos.

Since we give so much choice over picking the medium for the student, the flexibility over speed is established. A beginner can go through all videos, all solutions in detail, both checkpoint quizzes at his/her own speed, and the prep edge questions after doing some more practice. If done this way, the time taken would be around 5 hours for the class in Online CAT preparation 2021.

Someone who has taken CAT before and knows most of the basics can rush through the slides, listen in on the 4 most critical videos, speed through the checkpoint quizzes and focus on taking the Prep Edge quizzes with utmost seriousness. This 'expert' can finish the topic in less than 75 minutes.

The flexibility over speed is particularly useful while revisiting a topic. You can directly zone in on the 2-3 topics and 4-5 questions that you want to revisit, see 3 key videos and be done with the topic. Some of our students have been absolutely thrilled with the pace at which one can revise with 2IIM's online CAT coaching.
Till what date is the online CAT coaching valid?
The 2IIM CAT Online coaching for CAT 2021 is valid till Jan 2022 (so you should be covered till XAT 2022). Any student wishing to extend the duration of the course can contact us at 99626 48484. Any upgrades or additions we do in the course will be available to everyone.
Does 2IIM offer live sessions?
Most Definitely Yes. Our Live Online CAT Coaching class is based our of live sessions that happen throughout the week. You can find all the required details about the same here in this page. We offer to cover the entire syllabus through live sessions. We also provide our Online course at no additional cost to our Live CAT Coaching students.
How many video lectures are there in a 2IIM CAT Online Coaching course?
The Beauty of the best course is to teach oneself as much as possible with the least possible number of videos and questions. When there is a possibility to master any topic and crack those CAT questions by just learning 100 questions well, what is the need for one to do 600? But, anyways here is the textbook answer - It has probably 2000 videos, 10000 slides, and probably more than 10000 questions all discussed in great length and detail. Nearly 20% of the course is available for free. Try out a few classes. We are sure that you will have a crystal clear idea of what the actual course comprises once you see the freely available content. “Try before You Buy”

What is the eligibility for CAT exam?

1. A CAT exam aspirant with Under Graduation (Correspondence will also do) with minimum 50% marks in aggregate or equivalent from a recognised university.
2. The CAT exam aspirant must have completed education upto Graduation.
3. Candidates in their final year of Graduation are also eligible to apply. A student who finishes diploma and then pursues UG is also eligible.

What is the size of the videos? Can we watch it with even a 1MBPs connection?
As we have mentioned elsewhere in this section, our videos on a per-minute basis are about one-fourth of the size of the videos on youtube. So, if you have an internet connection that lets you watch stuff of youtube you can most definitely take this course. Screen capture technology gives us the option of keeping video length short. This is why we have built the entire content on this model.
What technology have you used for the videos?
As far as the online CAT 2021 Coaching Course is concerned, we have used screen-capture technology for most parts. For recording the videos, we work with a Software called as Blueberry; an alternative Software called Camtasia is also pretty good. Our online tech platform provider is Learnyst. They might use some hi-funda technology to create the platform, but they created a simple enough interface for us to use.
What are the technical specifications my machine needs to have for the CAT Online course to work?
You will need to have an internet connection, preferably at a speed of around 1 MBPS or better. (the course runs even at speeds lower than that). The videos load only on the Chrome browser. So, the course can only be learnt using Chrome. The simplest test to see if the specifications are met is to try loading some video from youtube on a Chrome browser. If your computer + internet connection lets you watch a video from youtube, you should be able to view everything from the online course from 2IIM.

Through 2IIM Online CAT preparartion's Mobile app , you will be able to save classes for offline viewing when your internet is stable, and learn from cached content when connectivity gets dicey.
