GMAT vs CAT
9/24/2008


Back in 2006, we had written in our blog about humanities students finding it difficult to enter B-schools. (Is Arts Too Soft?).

A recent article reports that forty-two per cent students of Class of 2010 at the Harvard Business School are from a humanities or social sciences background.

In comparison, the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) at Ahmedabad, the premier B-school in India, has only 1 percent of its enrolled class coming from the humanities background.

One of the main reasons for this stark difference is explained by the fact that the GMAT test is far more balanced and unbiased towards people with arts and humanities undergraduate degrees. In comparison, the CAT, the entrance exam for the IIMs, weighs down more heavily with test takers who are not good in math.
