Thank you VC Ankan and fellow teammate Prashant for the kind introductions. A hearty thank you to the selectors for giving me a place in the most respected things at PG. I hope not to let anybody down in these coming months or otherwise Here are a few words about me:
I am Shashwat Gangwar. I did BTech from dept of Mechanical Engg at IIT Delhi (batch of 2014). Joined Axtria in July, a Big Data Analytics firm headquartered in New Jersey. I'm posted in their Gurgaon office.
CBSE Xth board: 93.5%
CBSE XIIth board: 93.2%
BTech: CGPA 8.7/10
Extra-currics: Nothing great here, just some volunteering work at Avanti Fellows, and hostel football and tennis teams, apart from a few projects at IIT.
Took GMAT last year: 740/800.
The only Indian boy to be selected in the Yale School of Management's highly selective Global PreMBA Leadership Program 2014. Spent this summer at Yale's heavenly campus in New Haven (hands down one of the best things to have happened to me).
An ISB YLP 2013 Admit.
As for CAT, it's my second attempt this year. Took CAT last year and scored 79.14%ile (yes you read that correctly). Aiming for 100%ile this year
I am pretty balanced in both sections of CAT, or atleast that's what I feel, although I enjoy solving DIs and LRs in both the sections.
Target Colleges: IIM A B C
Exams appearing for: CAT
Wishing everybody here at PG the best of luck for this year! Looking forward to making new friends here
