I have recieved queries as to whether any specific reading is required before you guyz land here. Well, this is the time for you guyz to chill out and soak it all in.

But still if you guyz have nothing much to do and want to brush up some stuff, then I would say that just brush up a bit on probability, concepts of differentiation (no formulae... just the concepts like maxima, minima etc) and basic statistics fundae.

To those who want more, you can probably do a bit of macroeconmics and microeconomics reading from or Its not imperative though

@ Gaming Enthusiasts - AOE, NFS, Quake were the major games on campus last year, but there are plenty of doods who are into CS, Warcraft, Unreal et al

So get your gaming CDs and DVDs along. We will find people who are interested in it for sure.

That said, you will need some sort of proof if you get your final call to K. Things will get a little difficult otherwise.

So, if you are confident that you can get a certi or atleast a print of the email sent across to confirm that you are the employee of the month/year, then you are most eligible to put that on your K form. Otherwise, tread cautiously.


Thanks for that quick reply Srini. Yup, I will try to take a well judged call on this one.

On a different note, was just curious about the IIMK-IIMB sports meet. How did it go ?:-)

I read that IIMK does not have the complete set of outdoor sports facilities within the campus due to lack of flat ground. I guess the facilites at the NIT Calicut Campus comes in handy here. Knowing that you are a die hard Man U fan, can u tell me what the sports (football ??) scene out there is like. (Assuming itz not All work, No Play scene out there)

I know that the query is not exactly relevant, huhh but am curious

Great to see all the help that the guyz from kozhikode r giving us...

I have a very specific query:

I recieved the Achiever's award at my company for the year 2005. I know that this might be a big factor during the interview. But the problem is that we havent had a special certificate given to the achievers yet. We had a photo session and all that but nothing has been given on paper yet. Nothing has been put up on the intranet as well. I expect the certificate or award (whatever it is) to be distributed during some meet or company event in the not so far future. But as to whether I will recieve it before the interview is not sure. Obviously cant take up the issue with the HR, so that puts me in a fix. I am wondering whether I should put this info in the form that K has sent out and whether I can speak about it during my interview. Since I wont have any proof, would that make them look at my claim with suspicion?

Seniors please pour in your thoughts.

P.S - I work in a company and domain that the Panel might be keen to discuss about and yeah I do think the award might make my interview a tad easier. :satisfie:

The Lord
