Hi All,

There is some confusion in waitlist codes

Here are my two cents.
In the Cat Bulletin IIM Shillong had stated in their Selection Criteria that

The Institute, as a policy, takes students from diverse academic and professional background to provide a platform for cross-fertilization of knowledge

This is the reason why many of us even with low percentiles got calls coz of high acads.
Even during interview I met equal number of candidates from diverse fields like Commerce grads, Arts Grads apart from engineers.

So after interview in making final list the institute will want specific no of engineers.(from all diff fields) commerce, science and art grads so that the batch is well diversified

So if suppose an Art grad refuses to take admission, the inst. would want another art grad to replace him or her

Hence such coding to keep track of this problem

PS: Not to forget folks, it is all conjecture on my part. Please do not crucify me if I am wrong....:o

Topic: Same as the one asked in some another location
Mr Chandu was a cleaner in a company and had a driving experience of 15 years He has been loyal to the company and because of his courteous nature popular among people Recently he got a driving license .The officials seeing his diligence in his work decided to promote him as company MDs chauffeur.

He used to do his work meticulously but he has to sometime stretch his work as he was often called even in the wee hours to drop MD or late nights to pick him up. This actually put him under stress. One day similar such incident happened and instead of returning back to office , he returned to home. This was against companys rule as once the vehicle is taken out of the premise of the company has to be returned or informed to concerned authorities. He, due to stress thought shall return back the vehicle the very next day as he knew that other drivers used to do the same and flouted companys rules.
But meanwhile he hit a girl child and a case was filed against him by the victims parents .The companys official also came to know about this and started digging out the matter. Though the court exempted him from punishment but the officials took it seriously. Enquiry was ordered and the official suggested termination from employment.

Being the MD what would be your decision?

Hi Seniors,
I have a doubt in filling the application form
There is a question - "In your present/ last job, briefly describe your job responsibilities, achievements and failures"

I have 12 mnths exp in 1 firm and 6 mnths exp in another firm
Are we supposed to fill the details of only the last job or both the jobs???

coz the couriers r finding it hard to reach students thanx to the people doing so....
and its the only gud call i hav....got a waiting list at 18...
so all the more anxious....
