Who are the CAT-holics?
The CAT-holic blog is the brain child of two IIM graduates, J and T, under the aegis of our employer IMS Learning Resources Pvt Ltd. We’d like to briefly introduce ourselves below:
J is a graduate of IIT-B and IIM-C and an eight-time 100-percentiler in the CAT (’02, ’08, ’10, ’12, ’14, ’15, ’16, ’17). He is also a nationally ranked Scrabble player and cruciverbalist and is fond of solving lateral thinking riddles and crossword puzzles. In his spare time he reads Fantasy and Science Fiction, photographs sunsets and consumes entirely too much caffeine. He teaches Quantitative Aptitude and is also an expert in Vocabulary.
T is an MBA from IIM-L and a standardised test junkie with scores of 750/800 and 1500/1600 on the GMAT and GRE respectively. For the better part of his career he worked at the Academics Dept. of IMS developing courseware for the CAT, GMAT and the GRE and and ended his stint as the head of the department. He currently handles the IMS business at Pune and spends most of his spare time reading and travelling.
