A huge fight is going on here regarding the new AIR-1 I see.Just one suggestion guys,why bother!She has done done well in this mock.And We'd hope to see her name in ROH in rest of the mocks too proving it wasn't just a fluke!!!So it's better to stop it here already.

A disappointing performance in Quant Never ever had I got this low score in QA with 10 wrong in it.

64 + 53 = 117 ( pretty bad score after a series of 98's and 99's in terms of percentile ) :(

looking at this thread and all the other threads related to mocks, I must confess that I am a wee bit disappointed by the scope of discussion. people just post their scores, good or bad and that's the end of it. we already have percentiles which gives us a fair idea of our relative importance and that makes the discussion here completely irrelevant. I really hope to see that those weirdos who consistently maul the mocks share more insight into their strategy. CAT is a game of knowledge and equally about the psyche. those who didn't fare that well can share what they think went wrong and let others add to it. pagalguy is an amazing platform that enables mutual learning if used in the right way. let's start more directioned discussions.

I agree with Harsh on this. Merely posting scores on sections an individual has aced / tanked doesn't really help. 

Plus, those with average scores might get intimidated just seeing the scores of some of the "Toppers" here.

My request to all here- Share other valuable insights. Experiences(Read: troubles and moments when your mind screamed - Eureka!!) might help those who would have given the same mock and had a different approach.

Ps- The woods are lovely dark and deep,

but this journey will not seem so steep.

if merely we could take a peep,

into the journey of others, who are taking a leap!

@harshdaga "weirdos".. really? you just lost a potential help right there. Sorry man but you really need a lesson in humility...  Anyway on to the more serious part, I personally respond to each and every cry of help in my inbox. I try to answer as many queries that people post about questions in these threads as I can. But you guys need to speak up. It's hard, atleast for me, to recall any incidents after a week when the results come out, unless it has been explicitly asked for.

harshdaga
harsh daga @harshdaga 27

everyone out there would realize that "weirdos" was meant to be sarcastic. if you didn't then I apologize. and to be honest, I am not crying out for help here. I just posted this in the greater interest for everyone. I scored a 97%ile last year with an NMIMS and an IIM-S convert. so I am afraid, I don't think I need to beg you for help. what I was trying to convey was clearly lost to you so I don't care to clarify. wish you the best for your prep and hope you continue cracking the mocks

shashwatdgr8
Shashwat Gangwar @shashwatdgr8 847

I never said you were crying out for help, neither did I ask you to beg for help. I just said you guys need to speak up, in case you feel we can help you in any way possible. Anyway thanks for the wishes. All the best for your future endeavours as well :) 

PS: Please don't put up your past achievements to show people who you are, or to advance your argument; I hope you don't regret it one day.

harshdaga
harsh daga @harshdaga 27

that was w.r.t to your comment on "cry for help". and I honestly do not regard my past converts as an "achievement" and hence I am repeating it this year. if you count that as "putting up your past achievements", then what is sharing your AIRs and percentile just for the heck of it? I think we have reached an impasse. so yeah. good day to you sir.

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.

A notable weakness of the Indian bureaucracy is its failure to familiarize itself with modern management techniques, acquire new skills and tone up in professional efficiency. An equally unwelcome feature of the higher civil service is the lack of cost-consciousness. Rare, indeed, is the senior officer who is aware of the crucial significance of the compound rates of interest and realizes that money today and money two years hence are very different things.  The typical bureaucrat's lack of cost consciousness is partly responsible for his well-known tendency to avoid decision making.  A large number of top civil servants rue the day they are obliged to take a decision.  When it becomes no longer possible to postpone a decision, ______________________

Candidate Identification Affidavit may not be absolutely necessary Gaurav. You need to show either your Passport, PAN Card, Driving License, etc...these are the primary evidences. Candidate Identification Affidavit is also one of the options like them to prove that you are Mr. Gaurav and that you live in such and such a place (address), etc....that is all.....no need to panic regarding Candidate Identification Affidavit. But do keep it ready and let it come handy to you!!!!!!
