John Galt @Highway66 3.7 k

x - 2 mod (y) + 5 = 0.................1

y = 2- mod(x)...........................2

subs 2 in 1

x - 2 mod ( 2 - mod (x)) +5 = 0

case 1 x>=2


case 2: 0<=x<2

case 3: -2<=x<2

case 4: x<-2

Solve above 4.. ull get 2 points..

target XL/TISS/SCMHRD/SIBM if HR is yourgoal

these college have dedicated HR programs 

Failed Engineer @HARII 1.0 k

Hi Last time the Cut-off was 98.5%

A score of 99.4+ would be safe

But for HR I would say XL/Tiss would be better

Sun Tzu @sushant1002001 844

1. First of all, turn off ur caps lock.

2. @HARII  : Cut off was 98.2 for Ext-PI in general category.

3. For HR, prefer TISS,XLRI to FMS.

Shashwat Gangwar @shashwatdgr8 860

LOL it's not about the mock score. It's about customer service

Catank! @sawanbaing 221

Talking about customer service- I received a message from TIME for a class that was going to be scheduled the following day. All my friends backed out because it was raining heavily but demented soul that I was, I braved the traffic and the rain, traveled for oh let's see.... a zillion hours? Only to find out that the class had been cancelled. -_- Contrary to my expectations, they didn't profusely apologize. Only faked innocence-oh, didn't you get the message? Really...I mean really? Do you think I am some sort of a masochist who gets a kick out of braving the rain only to end up at the shady building you call your center looking like a drowned cat?!

Catank! @sawanbaing 221

Sorry for the rant, Shashwat! :-P I am just going to recommend TIME to all my foes next year. Petty revenge! Ha!

Mr. Mittal runs a small workshop which manufactures units of rolled steel sheets customised to the purchaser's preference. The workshop has the agreements to manufacture 4 units and 5 units per day for Arcelor and Solid Steel Ltd. respectively.

The manufacturing requires three continuous processes: pressing, cutting and punching where there are 2, 4 and 3 machines for pressing, cutting and punching respectively and the manufacturing is done between 9 : 00 am and 2 : 00 pm only, each day.

To balance the production, Mr. Mittal dedicates 1 pressing machine and 2 cutting machines for Arcelor and 1 pressing machine and 1 cutting machine for Solid Steel exclusively.The following table shows the time required by various processes to manufacture a single unit of rolled steel sheet for the two purchasers.

A unit must go through the entire processing of pressing, cutting and then punching in that order; where a process on a unit must be carried out without interruption on a single machine only.

Furthermore, each machine can process at most 1 unit at a time.

If Mr. Mittal is successfully accomplishing the agreements with both the purchasers, it must be true that

a.His workshop can complete the day's production earliest by 12:00 noon.  

b.His workshop can complete the day's production earliest by 1:00 pm.  

c.His workshop can complete the day's production earliest by 1:30 pm.  

d.His workshop can complete the day's production exactly at 2:00 pm.

Which machine could be idle for the maximum time in a day and for how long?

a.Pressing, 150 min  

b.Punching, 180 min  

c.Cutting, 300 min  

d.Punching, 240 min

At which of the following time instances in a day do all the three punching machines necessarily work together?

a.10:35 am  b.11:05 am  c.11:50 am  d.None of these

Hello Everyone, 

Below is the SOP i have written for FMS. Request you all to please review it and provide your valuable feedback.

Thanks in advance for the same.!!

Words : 144/150


It was during my engineering days that my interest in management was conceived where I managed extra-curricular with the academics. During this course, I held many positions of responsibilities while organizing technical and cultural fests. This really helped me to showcase my leadership, communication and managerial skills and further instilled the spirit of taking up the managerial job as my career objective.  After graduation, I joined Cognizant Technology solutions.  At CTS, while working at different roles and responsibilities I learnt how managerial skills aid the technology and can create wonders.  

Now I want to dig deeper and want to acquire the business knowledge in greater depth. I am looking forward to move up in the ladder which requires good management skills along with better understanding of business. FMS is one of the most prestigious colleges of India which can help me achieve my goals.
