Hi, I have two doubts.

1) While filling up the marks and subjects for Xth,  we are not supposed to exclude any of the subjects. However, one of the subjects which I had as a part of my Xth is not listed in the dropdown. (Bengali). How can I enter marks for this subject?

2) We are supposed to enter percentile for CAT and XAT. So, will this field be editable after the declaration of results so that we can enter the respective percentiles?

My journey of MBA :----

First of all, this post is not for those people who intend to aim for IIM's or those who scroll down quickly to see, which college I finally converted.

All it started from :--

I am pass out of 2011 batch (B.E.). I was placed in TCS (along with my entire batch of college). I was enjoying, waiting for my joining to come. On 14th June, during last day of college, all of my batch mates got their joining (except ME )I waited for around two months (till my class mates got their salary twice ). Day by day i went into frustration and feeling that MAY be TCS would cheat me .

August end 2011, I decided to give CAT casually, enrolled for TIME Indore (I am from Ujjain, so I had to travel 60 Km for each AIMCAT during those days).

1209 was my first Aimcat without any preparation and I got 89.6%ile. I was happy in that ... 20 Days till 1205, I studied like hell. Then I got TCS joining and again Mauj masti started. Left studies. Went TCS Hyderabad training center. Given CAT 2011 in Time pass.

Result : QA :98.6 , VA :65.xx (OA :95.xx).

2012: I came to Mumbai, I was okay with my project.Till March got feeling, TCS may be not suitable for me in long run. Mind again switched to CAT. Enrolled TIME Boriwali classes. (This was the first time ever I joined any coaching or tuition class in my life)

These Aimcats came very dicey for me. For QA it was okay, VA got 56%ile in 1320 . Started working on VA. Day by day I started working on VA. But still I was struggling with 60-80% zone. I still remember, it was 1313 where i got 95.xx in VA (without any help of LR ). A feeling generated inside me.

But what I felt now onward, QA went on declining side. Also I guess TIME Aimcat were on same pattern, I really took TIME AIMCATS for GRANTED. Went into high spirits. I was very much sure that this time I will really nail it and will go to top college. I went into overconfidence.

CAT2012 :Result (A disaster :Do not want to mention it)

Also my performance at office affected, Got the least rating, Break up, Rejection, all things came together like if god is punishing me for some crime. I went into depression. I went like kite whose regulating knot gone. I decided to leave my job , leave Mumbai, bleakness just engulfed me.

Finally decided, either I will stay depressed or move out and find out better ways to find my own self.

I started reading. Animal farm was first book during that season I read, I don't know what happened into me but then I felt, I guess it is reading which could pacify or calm my mind (From that date of last march, till now I almost read more than 30+ books ).

I also started teaching poor children, got opportunity from TCS LFT group. When I saw them I got feeling that I am very blessed that god has given such a beautiful life to me.

I also started watching plays at Prithvi theater, with 4 friends we all started discussing GK at CCD. NOT for exam purpose, but for knowledge purpose.

Along with I started enjoying my work as well.

Slowly I released that I started enjoying my life .Enrolled only for CL, was NOT serious this time .

Given all PG mocks (I was in decent zone of 85-95 %ile ).

What I realized this year was that I am not typical made for IIM's and all. May be colleges like IRMA, MICA, TISS is more inclined with my interest. I realized that I am not into mainstream. (I am into other thinks as film making during college, story writing, teaching children etc. were my passion)

So CAT was just a formality. But IRMA shocked me that 80% CAT score will be considered.

So worked little on CAT :

My CAT 2013 CAT experience :


It went BAD.

CAT 2013 result : 95 %ile with 90+ in both section. (and I thought I was expecting 40-50 %ile ) .

Then came TISS : Given.

MICA :(Yes, Here it came for me it is my DREAM college. Those who know me personally, they always say I am perfect MICA material ). Did not even sleep one night before exam. (Not even for a single second ,went five times to wash my face during exam).

IRMA :Given .

Rest college I did not care.


But for me MICA was obsession (I cried a lot when in 2012 I was rejected). I knew what I have to do.

First TISS interview came. It was okay. I was also not in full mood. REJECTED

It was during this 1st interview where I realized that my pros and cons, I am a bakar express kind of a person and I was trying to be intelligent.

I decided, even if I am DUMB, I will remain that, next was MICA my dream. Any wrong move, it could lead me ... No.... ).

There were things asked in form "likes and dislikes".

People said you to lie somewhere, make it marketing related, IMPRESSIVE.

I did not listen to them.

I wrote Books, Street dogs, Ayushman khurana (As my role model, please don't take it otherwise ).

I read almost 5 books on brand management. Researched on every nook of my life , my belonging, communications industry.

My interview went super awesome. I was told to make a movie on UJJAIN. I made entire script in front of interview panel .... Mohan jodaro ---Ashoka ----Vikramaditya----Samudragupta--- ITTUTMISH----Scidia -Kumbha mela---Mahakaal temple---23 and half degree tropic of cancer---ENTIRE HISTORY OF UJJAIN---IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER ----NAMED MY MOVIE (ITIHAS KA MAHANAGAR UJJAIN ).

KALIDAS ---ABHIGYANSHANKUTALAM , MEGHDOOT. Everything they asked I knew.

They asked how many languages I know. I said give me any indian language I can sing a song.Tamil,Kannad ,Malayam , Gujrati etc. They got puzzled and said god forgot to put stop button in my tape recoder. Offered TEA and BISCUITS .

Awesome 30 Minutes of life. The moment I came I knew I have done it this time.

When result came. 1st spot offer name. I was there. I Nailed it finally MICA MY DREAM.

Then IRMA came : I was original : Converted.

Then Big Trouble came : College fee.

My personal life :I have huge communication gap with my parents and not good terms with them (Very bad terms )..After 10th ..DID NOT HAVE A PROPER TALK WITH THEM..They do not much about my padhai likhaai ..typical business dhande waali family..They don't know MICA ,IIM ,IIT ...for them dukaandaari is best option ..Its not financial but they are not much into supporting education ..Business is of primary importance ..May be it sound strange to you ..They wanted to drag me into business and I retaliated ..Long back fight happened ..result :Bleak relations ...So bank wanted a coborrower .. for which my father did not give much support ....and fear started of losing MICA.

I did not find any person as guarantee.from 12th April to 5th May was most painful days of my life .I ran everywhere.Nothing worked .finally HDFC credilla also refused me on account of Co-borrower . Finally .I typed this letter to MICA :

Dear MICA Team,

Today is 5th May 2014,I was told by MICA representative regarding my last mail that as I got an spot offer and I was not informed prior about deduction of 25,000/- .So I will be given full 50,000 If I cancel my admission before 6th May 2014.

I tried everything ,but finally failed in this task .Today ,Bank rejected my loan request on account of poor co-borrower profile.

MICA is my dream college and it will always remain as my dream ,When I came there for interview I took some MICA soil with me.I will preserve it forever along with me .

I have one REQUEST with MICA.Please ,if possible for authorities to provide me a MICA T-shirt .I am not okay and it is painful for me to leave MICA due to such reasons.But if it is possible ,please send me a MICA T-shirt ,So that I will always preserve it as a memento from MICA .That day of 9th April will always remain alive in my memory .Even if some charge would deduct for it,I am okay with it.(My T-shirt size is medium)

One thing which I want to share is that whether I gained anything or not ,But one thing for sure .MICA gave me confidence in my life ,that I can do anything now.

MICA is great college and It will always remain.

Now ,with silent weight on my heart ,I would like to say please treat this mail as cancellation of my admission from MICA.

My bank details for amount transfer are as follows :--

Name :Ravi Gangani

IFSC code: CITI0000006

Saving account.

Account number :- XXXXXXXXX.

and I lost MICA when I received their cancellation confirm.

But this time I am not shattered ,Infact I am happy ,MAY BE GOD HAS BETTER FOR ME AHEAD ,I REALLY BELIEVE .

In fact I have seen many people who left their journey in between due to failure in exam or interview .At least I was among those fortunate ones who CONVERTED their dream .I am really proud of fact that till 10th I was not even able to read English (I am from typical GOVT. HINDI MEDIUM SCHOOL ) and I converted (Spot offer - flaunt ) best college of communication in INDIA .It is due to other reasons I have to leave it.

IRMA :A highly respectable college ,But Will not join it ,as I feel I am not fit for it.

VERDICT : WILL REMAIN WITH TCS .(Yes ,I got here good ratings and opportunities as well ,my project team is like home to me .)

Life is how you see it ,if you see it positively even little happiness brim you with satisfaction .But if you see it -ve ,even kings throne will look very bleak.

I am very happy with my life.Don't know what to do next .I am not in mood of giving any exam now .just enjoying and yes my days do not mere pass-by or drag off .They are dancing on its feet.

Good luck to all for your journey.Only mantra for success .

1) How many attempts you have made? 14-15+23-24

2) Your last mock score? 62.34 cat 2012

If you are there at repository thread, please provide the link here.


3) How was your experience of the test?


4) What was the surprise element for you?


5) Any tips to handle the computer based exam better?


6) Your overall analysis of the exam. Toughness, new topics, sections etc.

Quant - the questions are like easy-moderate and some from remote areas of very familiar topics, all u need is a small brush up of those concepts.One DI set is easy, in the another one 2 can be attempted out of 3 and in the last di set 1-2 ques can be done because it was too calculation intensive.Leave the DI if it is difficult(i.e. time consuming)you can attempt 2 ques in quant for every one such ques in those DI's.

LR sets were easy to moderate.LR is entirely doable in 25-30 mins. 1 RC is easy.the rest 2 were out of the world.instead went for the verbal ques as they were easy.

7) Any other query or something you would like to share.

ATB to others.

Coaching institute for CAT in DELHI/NCR

I want to join a coaching for CAT 2013,in delhi/ncr, but i am confused, can anyone please guide me!

Latest Posts   

For all the prospective students,I would sincerly recommend Tathagat CP if u feel the need to take coaching.Trust me,nothing else comes close to it in terms of quality.It has the best VA faculty in Kumar sir and Lokesh sir.Its QA faculty is outstanding,lead by none other than Sanjeev sir(he is the founder of Totalgadha).If any doubt is there,just go to totalgadha website and look at the quality of articles.There is no other place u could find such quality.And now Kamal Lohia has joined,the quality has gone up leaps and bounds.Kamal sir is one of the best quant teacher n ncr and just spending 1 hour in his presence would make you appreciate the intricacies involved in qa and maths..Other teachers are also very good...So guys ,please move beyond the so called brand names which are present in every city and try TG once...Dnt waste time joining other places...u will be better off!!
