I am a CA Final student who wishes to join IIM Bangalore for an MBA program after CA. Do they give preference to CA's? When should I start preparing for the CAT?

Yes, IIM Bangalore has additional weightage in the selection procedure for commerce professionals (CA, CS, CMA). However, to be considered, you would have to pass the sectional as well as the overall cut offs in the CAT.

For those who pass the cut off, IIM Bangalore is known to invite the top 10 from every criterion. So, if you're among the commerce professionals who have cleared the cut off and also happen to have scored a score among the highest 10 scores from among these applicants, you can expect a call for the interview.

The CAT tests you on math that might require tremendous practice. I would suggest that you first finish your CA Finals, and then take up preparations for the CAT with all your might at once. Both exams require tremendous effort to crack, and I would not suggest compromising your performance in one by simultaneously preparing for the other.

Hope you make it to the best! :)
