The chilling wait is finally over as CAT 2017 results were announced earlier this week with score cards and percentiles of candidates released on their specific login profiles. In CAT 2017, a total of 20 test takers have scored an overall 100 percentile, and one among them is Pattrick D’Souza.
Pattrick’s overall score in CAT 2017 is 246, wherein the section wise score are: QA – 99.89 percentile (90 sore) and DILR – 100 percentile (87.5 score)
In the time where candidates find it difficult to crack the CAT exam, Pattrick has just rolled the dice as he has not only cracked the CAT Exam several times but also aced it by getting 100 percentile in the exam for the fourth time. Previously, he successfully bagged the dream score of 100 percentile in 2007, 2009 and 2016. However, he never appears for the exam to get admission in IIMs but to get a hang of the changing exam pattern every year. Pattrick D’Souza believes in changing himself and always tries to put extra effort to run parallel with the prevailing trends in the education sector.
He is a 41 years old efficient CAT Trainer who runs an academy for MBA preparation, and has been appearing for the CAT exam for the past 12 years just to pass on the experience to his students.
D’Souza hails from Mumbai and holds a B.Tech Degree in Mechanical Engineering from NIT Allahabad in 1997. Subsequently, he aced the MAH-CET exam to complete the flagship MMS Programme from Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies, Mumbai.
He believes in moving ahead as there is no end to perfection. Therefore, he didn’t stop after scoring 100 percentile in CAT exam and kept on appearing for it to quench his thirst to grow and hence guide his students. According to Pattrick, teaching is what gives him utter joy as he thinks it’s a noble profession where students are groomed and trained to become management leaders of tomorrow.
D’Souza gave up his well-paid full-time job just to concentrate in teaching students. Now, that’s a thing of appreciation. Meanwhile, he runs a full-fledged management tutorial academy in Dadar and Thane, Mumbai.
A book named, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho changed him and gave him a new direction in life. It’s then he realized that nothing is impossible in this world to achieve if an individual thinks to do it passionately and honestly.
He worked in the corporate sector for four years before starting his own coaching centre for CAT.
After years of teaching experience, he has understood the importance of Logical Reasoning and Aptitude in CAT, and primarily focuses on these subjects while teaching students.
He believes in constant practice and focus improvement as the key areas to work for excelling in life.
Other than this regular job of teaching, he loves playing chess and also a marathon runner for which he has been awarded as well. Pattrick’s inspiration comes from his own work, and there is no particular inspirational role model in his life. He believes in learning from everyone.
