@abhi.iimb Hi Abhi, can you please let us know the profiles/roles/designations offered in the below finance related streams - Asset Management/Corporate Finance/Investment Banking/M & A ? Also please let me know which of these streams would be more closely aligned with a CFA charter from the CFA Institute. This will greatly help me in writing my SOP.

Guys ... can we share the WAT/PI preparation strategy ? Seniors can u guide us on those lines ? on what is expected out of us and how to prepare specifically to IIM-B ? I have 3 yrs of work exp ... should I open my engineering books now ??

Thanks for ur quick response ... I have one more question... The other IIMs have the weightage split up for final selection in a format ... I could not find the same in IIM-B website ... may I know on what basis the final selection ll be made ? only based on WAT/PI score or the current composite score also matters ? if it matters what s the weightage ?? Thank you once agian...

Hi seniors ... can I get the count of calls issued and the number of seats across each category ? will that be made available in public by IIM-B in future ? I just want to gauge the competition in WAT/PI
Hello Vijay,

I find SC's tough and RC's manageable. Try the RC's from Aristotle & read nytimes to get hold of good content.
Any suggestions for SC's ? Currently doing MGMAT and OG's .

P:S I m taking up the exam in Aug 2nd week!

yeah MGMAT is pretty good for SC. For SC the strategy that I follow is to read the sentence actively and scan for any known errors and then scan answer choices which have corrected those errors and narrow down. Also I look for the differences among answer choices and relate them with the rules. My accuracy is averaging between 80 to 90 % in SC. Only with modifier errors am facing difficulty. Again that shows my lack of reading habit. Need to work on that.

Hi SriVidhya,

Remove your mail id from the post. Thats against the forum rules. You can PM your mail id to the concerned person ...

Hi ... I gave my GMAT last Jan and got 600. Booked my slot on Sept 5 for another attempt ... Took a mock from Kaplan today . scored 660 (Q 46 , V 37 ).
In verbal CR is my Forte and RC is my nightmare. Any suggestions to improve my RC score ? Also in SC , the modifier errors are very difficult to spot on . Any tips on that also are welcome. anyone taking GMAT the same day ?

I belong to such category of people ==> No Finance Background(S/W professional ) , CFA L-2 PASSED and No MBA. Though, i have done FRM previously (a certifed FRM);

Also, i would like convey my thanks to PG Forum. I am what i am because of this forum.. this is my first post , i just watched it since last 2 yrs, but never taken venture to share or ask anything out of shyness or whtever u may say. I acquired all the insights about the FRM and CFA exams through PG. I don't any friends from finance background either.

PG u rocks!!!!!!!

Hi ...

Can u reveal which company and role u got in to finance..?
FRM alone did not get u any carer switch ?
When exactly did u get ur career switched ? after L1 and FRM ?

Hi .. congrats to all those who passed L2 ...
anyone here with a non finacne background who are yet to join MBA but cleared L2 and looking into a career switch into finance please let me know if u break through a finance career.
It would be of great help and motivation to guys like me ...
