Hey Shashank, how are you bro??
Hi, I logged in after very long time and the first thought of contacting anyone took me to you.
How are you buddy?
ruuud SaysI got a 99.99 and no calls from A or B, just C, L and ABM at IIMA. Still, I find it hard to disagree with the logic used by the old IIMs in giving out the calls, although the slab system used and the normalization techniques across different boards are frankly ridiculous. But a person's performance in the past is a very good indicator of how he/she will perform in the future. If a person has worked hard throughout his/her life, shouldn't that person get some advantage because of it? I can see CAT going the GRE way in the future, where it will only be used as a minimum criteria, and admissions will be based on individual profiles, and that is the way it should be. A two and a half hour exam isn't the way to judge people, their entire academic career is.
hritik sharma Saysbut then even if we gain experience and then give CAT , will it help?? Also how about taking 2-3 yrs job experience and then applying for executive MBA?? There also do they consider 12th again?? coz if they do then this is outright stupidity on their part to just keep looking for that phase of a person's life when he is not so mature as he has been in college or during job!! As per this policy , nobody can even get sick before their board exams and then there is no way tht u can get less arks in 10 th and 12th but u r fully free to screw up your entire graduation coz tht just constitutes 10% in sharp contrast to SSC and HSC constituting 40%
hritik sharma Saysi have good Xth 83.6%, but my 12th - 68.8%, and B.E (still persuing) = 79.08% i.e 8.8 CGPA...do i stand a chance in IIMs?? I am the college topper and u gave this yr's CAT without prep and scored 89%..i was shrtlisted for stage 1 in IIM k , pls tell whether there is any chance of getting into any IIM because i have less marks in 12h due to some reasons, is there anyway , evem if u get 99 percentile to get into IIMs because i saw the indexes in iim k stage 2 shortlisting and they weigh a lot on 12th marks...what shud i do?? shud i even give CAT next year??? i am very depressed...pls suggest me the best ciolleges that i can go for MBA in India , i m ready to give full effort on CAT but if always they will reject e on the basis of 12th then there is no point...pls help...
Yeah seriously man I'd borrowed books in 10th class to study,did not had that luxury .many books i wanted to buy but couldn't,those were bad times.I came so far from there but of no use.
god seems to be pissed off at the moment .
can't even spend on GMAT ,guess have to take admit in some low ranked b school.
sreeramdravid SaysAfter scoring 100%ile in CAT, 93.6% in CBSE Board(10th) and 95.6% in AP board(12th) and 8.59/10 in IIT...............i still cud not make it:shocked:
Well, I did not go so deep into it, my post was based on what I had read on 'IIMC Call getters' thread.
But good to see from your post that everyone has a chance, atleast at IIM C next year (if they do not change the criteria)
Although I think there is not point thinking about this, even just in case some one does not qualify for an IIM, there are a lot of other good B-Schools like XL, MDI, FMS (CAT cannot be given a miss now) etc where one can get good education and learn a lot. After that how high you go in life depends on YOUR hard work and attitude!!
So, what I think is that your decision to take CAT '12 should not depend entirely on if you'll qualify for a particular college.
Ha, nice analysis Prozium.
As per what I have seen for IIM C:
If you have above 80 in both 10th & 12th, you need 99.55%ile for a call.
If you have 1 above 80 and 1 between 75-80, you need around 99.62.
If both between 75-80 or 1 between 70-75 and 1 above 80, you need around 99.71.
1 between 70-75 and 1 75-80, around 99.85.
Both between 70-75, around 99.94.
Any one below 70, maybe at 99.99-100.
Both below 70, ?:o
I just hope they don't make it tougher for CAT'12.
Is the wait worth it for general engineer male? why its not recommened to strike back next year
after seeing this and previous year criteria some key analysis comes here:
IIM A: there criteria has become more difficult than last year and its foolish to think it will not become more difficult than this year next time. An AR of 27 is minimum which translates to 80% throughout in 10th,12th and Grad. So if one is in the seventies stop dreaming about this.
IIM B: 90+ in 10th and 12th plus 80 in grad and good extra curriculars will see through.If you cant get through A criteria, stop thinking about B.
IIM C: this used to be the last resort for the poor acads people but now it has also become a little bit high class. though a single 80 and two 70's with very very high cat score.99.8+ or two 80's and single 70's with 99.73+ can see one through. But bad thing is that the criteria can become more difficult next year.
IIM L: 2 80's in 10th and 12th, a high 70s in grads plus a different profile plus a work ex can be beneficial combined with a very good score. Remember girls and different profiles get extra marks here.
IIM I and IIM K: even 99.99 percentiles with a single 70 doesnt get call. IN K a throughout 80 is even not sure of the call. Until your are 85 + through out in acads or a different profile person,forgot.
IIM S; the less said the better
So its good to prepare oneself battlehardened for next year but its also wise to see what will we get after one year of time
And all the best to all..
