iim a,b.c,i are almost impossible,but at 100percentile i think dat there is provision to give calls to everyone despite of poor acads,no matter wat,but anything less den 99.8will not fetch u call,but iim k is there,cuz it gives 12%weightage fr graduation n 5%fr work ex. n according to me at around 97percentile u can easily get a call...

Hi Puys!

I have gone through so many experiences on this thread and I have to say the emotions have been infectious. Every time I stumbled upon a really huge post, I would think to myself, " God! How can one write so much!" Some people have a way with words (and I envy them :P) but I am not that good so I'd keep it short

My relationship with CAT began in 2010 when I first appeared for it in my 7th semester of B.Tech. I was just testing the waters so I ended up scoring an average 86.x. I had my mind set on work experience so forgot all about it. Then came 2012. My work experience had definitely given me a reality check and I realized a technically inclined career wasn't the thing for me. And so, I was reminded of my past love, i.e. CAT <3

My workplace had been stressful (thanks to a chauvinistic and egotistical manager). It was August already and I was yet to kick-start my CAT 2012 preparation. My preparedness was nowhere up to the mark. Knowing I hadn't put in much efforts, I knew the outcome wouldn't be very pleasant but there's always a part of you which is forever hoping for miracles! Then came January 2013 and brought with it my CAT score. Meager 84.59 %ile was all I got :/ I was kind of taken aback. I sooo wanted to leave my job that I followed the page @CAT 80-90% ! Lets make the most of it  I applied to a few colleges (read 3) to which applications were still open. To my surprise, I even converted one of them. My confidence soared and I decided to take one final shot at it. So, I pulled up my socks for CAT 2013.

Being employed meant I was mainly left with the weekends and a few hours after the job (which I mostly managed to waste). I did as much as I could on my own but joined IMS test series which kept me in check. Appeared for September CMAT, scored 242, ranked 1013. My confidence for CAT went a notch higher. Knowing this was my last attempt and not wanting to screw it, I convinced my managers to let me take off from work before the exam. D-day arrived - 31st Oct, 2013. I wasn't happy with my performance, to say the least. My attempts were less and so were the chances of cracking it. But then, CAT has its ways of surprising you Result: 95.13! I know you're thinking it's only 95.13 and not 99.13 but I was super happy! I remember having my eyes welled up with tears of happiness almost instantly! I knew this was my ticket to an awesome MBA college and I would finally live my dream

So, here I am today, joining MHRM at IIT KGP. Thanks to everyone who helped me in any way in my journey. Special thanks to @arpan.m   for telling me about this program and @dragster   for the constant guidance. I Hope I make the best use of this awesome opportunity!

Lessons learnt : 1. It's never too late to follow your dreams. 2. Keep exploring the world, keep challenging yourself. Life is an ongoing adventure. 3. It's okay to be stupid sometimes

Advice to CAT aspirants : 1. Be regular in your preparation. 2. Apply to as many colleges as you can, even if you think they're out of your league. (I regret not filling up MDI/XIMB) 3. Appear for all the exams. You never know which day is yours. 4. Lastly, CAT or even MBA is not the be-it-all. There is life beyond it.

All the best guys! Cheers to the new beginnings! (y)

PS: It wasn't that long, was it?

@Dangel : I am Gen category +Male candidate and haven't given any of the MBA exams till now, I am just about to begin my CAT hunt and seek ur guidance.

I am 2014 passout Engg. student and my acad. are 10th-73.2% 12th-77% and Engg.(Grad.)-74.28% I am also having a Gap year after my 12th standard to prepare for engg. exams. Also,I am placed in TCS and awaiting my joining right now, hoping to be in september/october. As i am pretty much aware that MBA is right career to choose as a job of 3.18Lpa isn't enough. Please guide me when and how can I plan my preparation for CAT means will it be good to do it side by side to my job or something else, As I really wanted to be in as good B-school.

Dangel . @Dangel 395

@kinji.at.pg1 Thank you :- ) Good luck to you too @aniket1994 Almost all of the B-schools do consider one's acads. Generally, 60% throughout is the minimum eligibility criterion (except for IIMs, XLRI etc. which may have higher cut-offs) But if one performs exceptionally well in CAT, then I guess one can compensate to an extent. @anujbvp check your PM.

@dipon let be speed of Escalator be E, and that of Shyam and Vyom be S and V respectively
from the question, V= 2/3S
time taken by Shyam to cover 25 steps = T, then time taken by Vyom to cover 20 steps be 6/5T
since distance covered will be same in both the cases
T(E+S)= 6/5(E+V)
E+S= 6/5(E+ 2/3S)
on solving we get E=S
hence Speed of Escalator will be same as Shyam
so if Shyam has taken 25 steps, Escalator will also take 25 steps
total steps covered =25+25= 50
if the escalator is not moving, there will be 50 steps to cover. @gauravinflames @Surya_1611 @

Hello!!

I hope you have already done some prep before and not completely new to Quants n Verbal. 

Now seeing that you are posting this question in mid-July and not April or March, I wud suggest to not waste your time going through books and running behind the very basic questions. Time is of the essence (sorry! too much gyaan). 

Enrol for a test series, i have given SimCAT (IMS), and would strongly recommend. Start giving sectional tests, get a realistic picture of where you stand and then decide on how much input you need to give. Make a study schedule, keep all distractions aside, friends, family, bf/gf, social networking or fix a time for them. and jump in whole heartedly. ATB!

As time of A filling the tank is 3 hrs and that of b is 6 hrs....so let qty. of tank b 18 litres and hence A will fill the tank at the rate of 6 L/hour and B at 3 L/hour. Now we are left with simple calculations....
