@pursuitofhappyness let the initial no of people who rejected the bill be x

therefore ppl in favour will be 600-x

now after discussion opposition went up by 150% therefore ppl opposing will now be 2.5x and ppl supporting will be 600-2.5x

now 2.5x-(600-2.5x)=2(600-x-x)

5x-600=1200-4x

9x=1800

x=200

majority here means the number by which the votes cast for one party or candidate exceed those for the next.

(C) Ethnic, regional, linguistic and material disparities are profound.

(D) The country will also loose the excellent reputation it enjoyed in international arena. 6. at worst, it will once more become vulnerable to international conspiracy and intrigue.

Depends on the area you want to apply to. But generally speaking:

1. Either BTech from an IIT or MBA from one of the top 15 schools in India

2. Some research experience

3. Very good GMAT score (700 is the minimum)

If you low on any of these, you can compensate by making the others high.

Hi.. I am interested in FPM-Public Policy and Management. Most of the students in this particular course have done graduation or post graduation in Humanities or Social Sciences. I have done B.Tech. from NIT Jaipur and currently working. All my research projects and internships are in Materials and Metallurgy. So, is it possible for me having an engineering background to get admission in this discipline? I am taking GRE in Sept this year. Thanks.

What is your motivation? and what are the challenges you expect in the transition? You have to ask yourself the question and be complete with the answer including any gaps personally you need to attend to..not short answer, they will be not so convinced

Its time i jot down my experience of CAT.. Would make a good 5 page article actually, but lets put it short . I hope some publisher comes forward to publish my article pp


Pagalguy has always had a surprise for me.. I never knew what a dream team would be till the day I got nominated there…! I wasn't really serious about my CAT till the day people brought serious in me with their doubts..! Being a part of legacy of PG Dream Team was an honor but I was extremely worried people around me were too giant a killer to think about, leave alone to compete along. But today, I stand jubilant after cracking the toughest entrance in the world(source: WiKi)


The journey of this WIMWIAN flowed like this..


CAT 2010:

My most serious n sincere attempt to crack CAT. Fighting alone with hardly anyone to get guidance from and to remind you all, I never knew what PaGalguY was too. I worked hard as my final year in college hardly posed trouble to me. I wondered how in this world could I not crack CAT. I prepared well I would say though not my best but once I wrote the exam I was sure I did well. Wrote other OMETs, all were decent except for FMS which I floundered. I never bothered till the results gave a shock to me. A paltry 98 shouted loudly in my ears. “You are done buddy”. That day I thought I might not write CAT again in my life. XAT followed with a 99 and JMET with 89AIR. I could now easily put the blame on Normalization for ruining my chances. I never prepared for interviews. I still remember having around 15 calls in top 20. I could manage to ruin all of them except for a couple in which I wasn't interested. I had an attractive job as a trader and hardly bothered about them.

And I though the journey ended…!


CAT 2011:

Though I was never serious about it, I just gave it to be on safer side for I might get fired from FF.(People who know about FF should know why I am saying so). And to my surprise I got a 93 in CAT. Couldn't I have imagined a worse no. like that. And I agained cracked XAT comfortably at 99.8

Happily messed up XL interview as I wasn't interested to join. I was planning to continue my job as I got confirmed in office by then.. Dint make it to XL even with that score…!

And again I thought the journey finally ended…!


CAT 2013:

It was Feb 2013 when I realized what my career was..What it offered and what I wanted.. Money is never bad but I wanted something else. I wanted to fulfill my dreams.. I wanted to conquer the eluding.

I started to focus and revisited every damn concept in CAT. I joined PG..started to work on even minor problems. Practiced and practiced. Though I knew I was doing the same thing which I always did, I knew there got to be some difference. I still remember those days when I came back at 2 in the night and opened an article to read from philosophy..Crazy stuff…!

I actually hoped to clear CAT this time in spite of all the hardwork I put in. This time the result was a bit more favourable though not the one to quench my thirst. 99.4 with a good balance of secs at 99 n 97.

I was hoping to get some calls. Got A B L K S calls…!

And the XAT result had a surprise waiting for me.. this time it was 99.96 and I was like, I can crack XAT in sleep too..!


I promised myself not to let go this opportunity. People wouldn't believe if I say I even read about why seasons occur across the world. The amount of effort I put in, I myself was surprised. I actually grew fond of curiosity to know things. I went to the extent of reading about World war 1 n 2 because the atomic bomb was dropped on Aug 9( It happens to be my B'day). I learnt about every damn ibank in US. For the first time, I was happy I gave my best. Gave all my interviews in a flock..15 days around 10 interviews. And I availed only a day's leave. I couldn't afford any.. You know my profession is so….!


Had an iift reject.. I realized I had a low score and irrelevant work ex for iift (fin is not for their liking). So thought its ok.

Had an spjain reject- Oh man.. this was unexpected.. I was hardly asked any questions. Never thought this was coming..!

Next had an XL reject.. This hit me on my face.. I was worried .. I still wonder why this happened. I had a 40 min interview and I did relatively well. I thought it was the end..!

Next came the B reject: though expected I hoped for a miracle. There wasn't any… I couldn't see myself doing an MBA. One of my friends told.. Once some one says u aren't fit for an MBA how do u expect to get in

And the Blast came after all this… Couldn't have been a better moment to see this.. I could see my mom cry with me when we saw my IIM A convert. I cherish it and will forever.

L,K, MDI followed …!

Now its my turn to reject them…!


End of the day I had the final laugh..!


Some thoughts for aspirants:

Never think u can never make it though it looks obvious. There is always some thing hidden.

Work on every tiny detail u can think of. They help at some point.

Give ur best and keep giving ur best…! All the best…!


P.S: I could have written more but its already too lengthy…!

For all my experiences u can check out the DT thread…!

Special mention for @visionIIM-ACL and DT team who had supported me at all times.. All the Best to every one of them
