IIT- M Abhiram Iyer tops CAT loves soccer, wants to be a novelist
Abhiram Iyer, a 23-year old mechanical engineer from IIT Madras, topped the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2013. A football enthusiast and a avid-reader of fiction à la Steven Erikson, he aspires to one day write a fantasy novel.
Abhiram, who has been a project planner at Ashok Leyland for the last 18 months, secured 100 percentile after two previous attempts, which gave him a score above the 99th percentile.
According to him, de-stressing yourself is essential in preparing for a paper like CAT. He added, “Before every mock test, I would watch a game of football. It reminded me nothing is predictable, just like the CAT.”
