I have been following this thread for sometime now, especially your replies where you were guiding fellow aspirants for the MICAT.
Having applied to MICA with three years of work.experience, I had expected some level of distinction in a MICA entrance paper from a typical CAT/MAT/XAT/GMAT exam, especially with all the emphasis laid on the objective of ascertaining a candidate's 'fit' into a Communications program i.e., knowledge basic definitions, past trends, opinions on advertisements, all the need for lateral thinking, creativity etc..etc..
But, the paper was disappointingly CAT-pattern based, without any trace of knowledge or creativity being tested anywhere in the paper.
It was almost as if the entrance was for some regular Management program at an even more regular business school, instead of a specialized program at a premier and super specialized institute for Communications management.It was overall,a disappointing experience.
My ques here is simple: our CAT/GMAT scores have been already taken to ascertain our aptitude for a management program, the application form was comprehensive enough to judge our interest in this field, then what is the end-objective of the MICAT, as conducted on the 17th?
Though the English language was tested comprehensively, the other sections did not provide an aspirant with a forum to demonstrate his thought process fully.
I would really appreciate it if you could help me understand the selection/elimination thought process of the admissions committee at MICA.

2. GE HRLP
6. Genpact & Growtalent including a gamut of other recruiters.
The focus was on HR Consulting, IR, Corp. HR, Compensation & Benifits, Line HR & Training while talking generally.
