Most of the students from B. Tech sit for CAT exam in their final year. You will be considered as a fresher and most of the questions asked in the interview will be done from your B. Tech field. But according to my knowledge, students having some experience are preferred more in the colleges. I recommend that you start gaining experience from the 7th SEM and register and then give your CAT exam before your 8th SEM because after the interviews colleges generally ask for graduation certificate for a proof that you have graduated. Some interviews also require you to show the pre-final year notice (a letter from UG should work)
I hope this helped.
All the best.
yes,you can give the CAT exam in your final year of graduation.These such candidates will be provided with provisional admission .Admission of these candidates can be confirmed only after they provided with certificate from university.I hope this would helps you.
