CAT evaluates your numerical ability skills, which can be developed with a lot of practice, and joining coaching classes. MBA in marketing or HR does not place demands on your mathematical acumen.

It makes sense to take an assessment test. Then, discuss your choices with a career counsellor, based on your academic record, affordability of options, geographical choices and of your course, your aptitude.

Dear Aspirant,

If your maths is weak, then unfortunately it is of no use to think for CAT exam and getting selected for IIMs.

You can improve maths and solve questions like other people do, however those other people do not solve them by luck or being born as mathematicians. They must have practiced a lot and they also may have love for numbers, which is necessary for being a maths geek.

You can improve your maths with lot of practice since you did not have maths in your course stream earlier. This will require to spend more time that others and this means that if you are aiming for CAT 2016, then that would not be possible.

Why are you thinking of MBA only as a career course? Are all in the world MBAs? 

I feel, you should check which is the ideal career for you and that may not require MBA at all. Please take the Ideal Career Test from CareerGuide.com. This is an online psychometric test which will check your aptitude, innate abilities and interests and suggest you the career.

Best wishes
