Hi Arun hey nothing to worry man....be confident and u shd have confidence in ur abilities and u have also secured a good percentile....see if u have prepared for any mgmt. entrace xam then u will crack the UPESMET....see competition is always there but the main thing is thing is that how u tackle it especially in critical situations so don't worry about it just give ur best shot and rest leave in the hands of god....
GD topics will be vary from current issues to social,economical,....so i would like to suggest you to read magazines,newspapers and threads of GD on PG....and try to improve comm skills in these days and u will definitely crack it....of course a degree like engg. will always be an added advantage but prepare well for xam....good luck for ur preparation....hope to see u at upes.....

@atul: donno atul..just a confirmation..no dates or venues yet...
@harsh: hi harsh..i am a chemical engg. final year student from VIT, vellore. got placed in TCS...placements still going on full swing(fingers crossed for mrpl and bpcl)...what would you advice for doing mba at this point or some time after getting some exp..

Hi Palit....as u r a fresher and have job in very reputed software company and in my point of view u should gain some industry experience from ur job and then give urself one chance more and then try for top management colleges....unless u have a strong desire for pursuing mba in oil and gas sector....but final decision will be urs.....best of luck for ur future....

hi all....placements are good only for Oil & gas and Energy Trading....some of the courses are newly introduced such that logistics and supply chain mgmt., infrastructure mgmt. aviation mgmt.(even logistics and infra batch yet to be come this yr only so no previous data is available) so for these courses no such placements/offers are offered till yet but placement committee are working on it....so my advice for all aspirants is to seek admission only in oil n gas and energy trading courses.

More queries will be welcome....

hi harsh,
gr8 wrk
as u r frm upes, u must also b knowing about school of petroleum mngt. hows it?any idea?

Hi Saurabh ya i know about the school of petroleum management it is in gandhinagar Gujarat. Its also a good college in this sector. There are only some colleges that's provide specialization in oil and gas sector.

IIIT Pune(Ong Mgmt. on the guidelines of UPES)

so in above colleges RGIPT is best and then SPM and UPES.

hi harsh.thanks for the information.i am fresher doing chemical engg(final year)..got a call from upes for gd/pi..it would be a great help if you can tell the avg placements for oil n gas for freshers(if there's such criteria for recruiters there)..

Hi Palit when is ur gd/pi call?? Avg placement for oil and gas is around 4.5-5.5 lpa and there is no such criteria for placements so don't worry for that just prepare well for GD/PI....Good luck for ur GD/PI

Thanks... Can u please clarify these points too

1. Are u sure it is 80% frm MET and 20% Direct?? In website and brochures they have specified 75% from MET and 25% Direct..

2. Can u please tell MAX, MIN, AVG and MEDIAN packages offered for Oil&Gas; management and Energy Trading courses??

3. Are the interviews conducted only at Dehradun?

Hi kaarun.....ya from this year only 80% seats are through UPESMET and rest 20% are from CAT(>80%ile)and MAT(>90%ile)

Max package for ET students is 7 lakhs and and minimum is 5 lakhs for ET course and same is for OnG.

Till now interviews was conducted in all centres i.e dehradun, gurgaon, and rajamhundry....but from now onwards it will be dehradun (not so sure)
