In this session Vivek from TOPMYTEST speaks with Shashank Prabhu from Learning Roots and Patrick Dsouza from Patrick100 about the choices that students have with online and offline CAT coaching and how to go about making their choice.

With the expansion of the Internet footprint and the drastic drop in prices, the online revolution was supposed to impact the education especially the CAT preparation space too. What was not to like about it – the ease of access, the cost, “personal attention”, the peer group, et al. But is it really happening or has it descended into another case where the memes improvise to fill up the available time? Is online education making the impact that it was supposed to make? Should we give up on the offline test preps once and for all? How do we decide which one to choose?
