My ans are
My take is
Q1 - Answer (b) = 100
Q2 - Answer (c) = Two
what are the OAs?
abhishekag05 SaysMy Attempt1) Median is 140 so last three will be atleast 140 (Sum of deviation from mean = 140-124 x 3 = 16x3 = 4 (If we will increase the value of the 3 largest, value of least will decrease).Sum of the rest of the two will be 124*2-48 = 200So maximum value for the lest will be 200/2 = 100 (max possible is that the two are equal) Concept used here is that the sum of deviation of each element of the set from its Mean is zero. So Choice B2) We have to find the combination of 6 prime nos out of 2,3,5,7,11 ......... 2*2*2*2*2*2=642*2*2*2*2*3=962*2*2*2*3*3=114 Any other combination will result in more than 100 So choice C
Oh dude..wrote a big post yday giving you some pointers about the exam but some problem with my server for the post never reached PG I hope its not late . 5 more days to go.
Thanks USMba... That was a nice post.
Bunti4Billi, for DS keep an important rule of thumb in mind - after you've eliminated "A" as an incorrect choice, you should ensure that you are not using the information in "A" to check if "B" is correct.
For RC, what USMba said is excellent advice. Also note that for questions asking "what is stated in the passage" as against "what is inferred in the passage" - you just need to find that info again. Are you using Kaplan's method - of noting a one-liner info about each para?
First of all relax! The exam is more of how you react to the pressure of the exam rather than testing on your skills.
1. For RC, focus on the different types of questions. There are certain set types of questions like 'Whats the tone of the RC?' etc and you should not make mistakes in such standard questions. If this helps, then try reading the RC after reading the questions. IN this case, you know what you have to skim for in the article.
2. For DS, avoid jumping to conclusion. Ask in your mind, if you are making any assumption about the missing data. If yes, then stop. DS can be mastered in couple of days.
For the rest, go through the tests which you took earlier and revise the mistakes which you made earlier. May be take a test or two... but not more.
In my case, I wasn't getting any great scores either but maintained my cool during the test and managed 750 (99 percentile).

I chose IIMA (PGPX), ISB, Duke, Kellog and Wharton. But I'll be applying to only PGPX and ISB. Not sure about any international applications..
Not at all late
What B schools do you plan to apply? For all US B schools you have enough time till Oct. If ISB is one of your target, even then you are on the safe side. The last date for ISB apps is in sep 1st week.
Just one suggestion. Don't worry about colls and apps now and give your best in exam. You hardly have 2 more weeks to go!!
Good Luck for your exam. Countdown begins
Hope to see a joyous debrief of yours after your exam ;)
