Bengaluru engineers score big in CAT 2020 | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: When the results of Common Admission Test (CAT) were announced on Saturday, Bengaluru had its own share of toppers. What was common among them was the fact that many of them were engineers working in private companies in the IT city, with a year or two of experience.
Vishesh Garg, who scored 99.99 percentile, hails from Himachal Pradesh, but has been working in a tech startup in Bengaluru for 1.5 years. “I had scored 99 percentile last year. But I had not prepared for the exam and wanted to test what best I could achieve with preparation,” said the NIT Hamirpur alumnus, who later went for coaching with TIME institute in Bengaluru.
“I have a knack for speaking, being a team player and not losing my cool when under pressure. In college, I was part of the organising committee of many programmes. A management degree was part of my academic plans,” said Vishesh.
Aditya Devalla Sai Satya, a chemical engineering graduate from IIT-Bombay has been with Axis Bank, Indiranagar as a data engineer since 2019. Aditya, who has been working from home since the lockdown, is keen on entrepreneurship. “There are two reasons for wanting to become an entrepreneur. One is to create livelihood opportunities for people. The other is that I’m passionate about football and want to do something around it. I want to make the sport more popular here. I have a vague idea and hope my stint at an IIM will help me pursue the dream,” he said. Aditya secured 99.97 percentile in CAT 2020.
For Ankita Agarwal, who comes from Guwahati, entrepreneurship is a long-term dream. Ankita has a percentile of 99.52. Having studied civil engineering at PES University and joined Amazon on graduation, Ankita said her family is into business and she too would like to join the league.
