Andhra boy scores 100 percentile in CAT exam

In his first maiden CAT attempt Sri Ram Pemmasani, final year student of IIT Ropar in Punjab, and a native of Nellore in Andhra Pradesh scored 100 percentile in the CAT 2011. The result was announced on Wednesday.

Pemmasani is a student of PT Chandigarh Centre, the local chapter of PT Education. His father is a film distributor in Andhra Pradesh. The online examination was conducted for 20 days between October 22 and November 18. He said,“ I am glad to have achieved this score. The focus is now on further studies.”

His institute’s head, Col Gurmeet Sethi said, “One thing good about the results in the region is that final year students without work experience have been performing exceedingly well over the years.” Chandigarh, Punjab and Haryana do not have any other student who scored 100 percentile. Sri Ram said he was looking forward to start soft skill preparation and gear up for the group discussion and personal interview leg.

Meanwhile, among the top seven students from the city, three are girl students. Arushi Jain got 99.97 placing her among the top 30 students across India.

The head of Bulls Eye (North) Hirdesh Madan, said, “In last 13 years this is the best performance I have ever seen from city girls.”

The CAT entrance exam is the gateway for entry into 13 IIMs and also more than 100 colleges across the country accept the CAT score.
