I would like to have an advice from you that iam giving XAT only for GIM and i have not applied for any other college.As far as i have done CAT and others i feel verbal and quant is my strong section while AR troubles me...as the no. of questions are above hundred in XAT and to obtain a call from GIM ,it is easy to manage marks from our strong section...i would like to ask that if i attempt only my strong sections and get a decent percentile ...can it affect my chances to get into GIM ....can it be said a wise strategy???
there is no sectional cutoff for getting a call in GIM, that is very true. but what we need to understand is:
Suppose somebody gets a score like 95/98/50 (in the three sections),
thereby getting a overall score of 94 (assuming)
so this person will definitely get a call from GIM, but dont u think in the interview that person will be grilled why he/she got such a pathetic score in that section...
(i am telling this as i has pretty bad/unbalanced scores last year)
so giving up on one section is not really an option, yeah the scores need not be totally balanced but ideally they have to be decent atleast.
hope this answers your query.
