I think you will get 10 minutes to write the essay. Most students cannot, mind it, cannot complete the essay. My essay was left halfway through, while I was making an argument. The interviewer asked me to complete the argument in the interview. So more than finishing the essay, quality of your points is also important. And I think more emphasis is always on interview.

Read about many topics. Have opinions. It will help.

All The Best.

It's not compulsory to finish your essay. I had left my essay while I was making an argument, but the time was over. It's not possible to write essay in 10 minutes. Raising some important issues is more important according to me. I was asked in the interview to complete the argument I was making in essay. So not a big deal.

I've got a IIM A GDPI call. My overall percentile is 98.8. I filled in from OBC quota but the call letter does not mention that the call is from OBC quota. Is there any way to confirm that the call is from OBC quota?

If you have filled NC OBC in CAT form, It's from NC OBC. There is no other alternative possible. You have to get the certificate.

Some Hot Tips:
1) Drive the interview to your strengths! Talk about the areas of your strength.
2) If discussion is going on an area, which you do not know much...Tell them frankly, "Sir, I do not have much idea about this. I am not sure about this." etc...
3) Do not be nervous at all. Interview is more like knowing each other. In this case the interviewer will be interested in knowing about you. In 15-30 minutes, It's your choice what you want to tell him/her. Simple!

Keep reading for some more tips....

(311/450)*0.7 + (AR/33)*0.3 >= 0.7050 [ Asuming your frined comes under general cateogry]
On calculating we get AR must be greater or equal to 24.35

so with AR 10 not possible for him ..For AR 10 you need to have a minimum score of 395/450.

Its just simple calculations.

That's a nice criteria!
It's Awesome as always!

IIMA is Awesome!

Hey guys ... What should be the first step for the preperation of GD PI process... what is the way now to proceed


Start reading some national News-Papers. Join some GD-PI class (like TIME). Prepare Your acads well. Revising yours grads is a good idea. Make opinions about what is happening around the world. Take some mock interviews mid-way to your actual interview. Don't show-off in interviews. Be humble. It's not necessary to know everything under the sun.

You can also read last years' interviews

All The Best!
