BUILDING THE WINNING FORMULA
From designing your own customised course to a comprehensive guide on last minute CAT do’s and don’ts TestFunda has it all.
TestFunda is a great example of how technology has completely transformed the way students now prepare for competitive exams like CAT. TestFunda not only provides comprehensive study material for CAT and other MBA entrance tests, but does so in four formats— print, online, CD and android. With an active community of over 4 lakh users with 300 new registrations per day TestFunda is also the leading online aptitude test module in the country.
According to Rahul Zaveri, General Manager, TestFunda, “Ease of learning, revision and practice at an individual student’s own pace are some of the clear advantages of online study portals. Since there are no fixed timings or any geographical boundaries, students can choose to study when and where they find it convenient.”
While providing students with the advantages of study materials in the form of online archiving of printed books, TestFunda introduces a whole lot of innovation to CAT preparation. For instance, they have a feature called
‘ Ask- a- Doubt’, where experts are available round the clock to answer student queries. TestFunda also includes other sections like online dash boards, weekly general knowledge and mental agility quizzes, virtual group discussions, online debates and fun learning games like Word Tetris and Scrabble which help improve students’ verbal ability. TestFunda has an excellent interface which is highly user- friendly greatly adding to the overall experience.
One of the most unique features of TestFunda is that it allows students to custom design courses and tests. This ensures a completely personalised manner of studying as the student gets to choose a curriculum as per his individual requirement and performance.
According to Shankar R, a user of the website from Coimbatore, TestFunda’s innovative approach of making students learn while on the move with features like questions through SMS are very helpful features.

CAT 100 Percentilers, where past toppers and experts in the field provide detailed insights into topics like ‘ Last minute do’s and don’ts’, ‘ How to score high in
GDPIs’, ‘ 8- Week CAT Study Plan’, ‘ Cracking the CAT exam for Repeaters’ and even something as out of the box as ‘ MBA Entrance Exams and Cricket – Two sides of the same coin’.
About CAT preparation in these last weeks, Zaveri says, “Quality is always better than quantity,”. “Don’t try and solve 50 to 100 questions every day in the hopes that repetitive practice will make your groundwork better. The more focused your approach, the better are your chances of attaining a higher percentile,” he suggests.
