Default Re: IAS or CAT

Well as you asking for IAS and CAT exam then for it I would like to say you have to decided that you go for public service or to become a businessman or A role of Manager in MNC, bcoz IAS- A public service. A reputed career in Indian Bureaucracy. Greatly honored position in India and CAT- A service to MNC or your own firm. Again, a reputed career. Great remuneration.


IAS with a much large course, questions asked from a much wider spectrum of things and also because of the number of applicants, is a much harder nut to crack.

CAT in comparison is easy with a limited course and for someone from a mathematical and statistical background it can prove to be a cake walk. The probability of achieving success in both of them has a huge margin.

IAS come under civil service exam conducted by UPSC and CAT exam conducted by IIMs
