Hi all, I hope this thread doesn't start off one more reservation in educational institute debate. But CAT is a very different ball game for the students from the reserve categories, specially since they make it to there with a low percentile...

Can somebody provide the info regarding the GD topics given by IIM-I last year. Also last to last year.
Does IIM-I follow a set pattern on GD topics like factual or abstract or case studies or is it a mix??
Pl. help

Friend,

you can search IIM-I GD experices for past years...
Also, you can later look into this years experience when the interviews starts this year.

Cheers!

Hey muralidhar

For those who got call frm IIMA will not get final selection. I mean after GD/PI they will select the cadidates who met the criteria. So some of the seats will be unoccupied.

And they should fill those vacant seats with the General cadidate students. That is the law(if i am not wrong).

And coming to the other IIMs IIMB shortlisted 79 candidates for 18 seats. and IIMC also shotlisted around 3 times the seats that they have. I dont know about the other IIMs. I think other IIMs also might hav done the same think.

what you say..?



srinu.. Thanks for the info

I am wondering what IIMA will do with the one ST seat remaining(out of 21 they have called only 20). I am sure the same will be the case with other IIMs too.

Will the remaining seats are left without suitable candidates or else added to the General catergory. It shouldn't go unoccupied as there are many brilliant canidates who can fill that.

May be seniors could confirm this.
