As we have to maximise X*Y^2*Z^3 (power of X=1, Y=2, Z=3). So divide X in 1, Y in 2 and Z in 3 equal parts. X+Y/2+Y/2+Z/3+Z/3+Z/3 = 36, Now make all such parts equal i.e. X = Y/2 = Z/3 = 36/6 = 6. We get X=6, Y = 12, Z = 18.

Yestarday fifth wailist came for all categories except OBC as if there was no obc waitlist moment.A premier institute of india,FMS,produces best managers,but has disappointed everybody with their management skill as far as jat quota is concerned.

Now taking it to one step forwad,they do not even bother to take pain to at least release the waitlist for the seats which selected student did not take (in fourth list Vignesh K L M & Abraham james did not join for sure,confirmed it on fb).

It creates the doubts on their (fms) intentions whether they unconstitutionally wants to keep in or keep out a particular group.

January to June : From being nowhere - to a place I hadn't imagined in my wildest of dreams!!

It was the third year of my engineering. I was still undecided about my career and did not knew what I actually wanted to do with my life. Also, was sure of not getting an on-campus job owing to my wonderful acads:

10th : 91.8

12th : 67.8

B.Tech : 62.7 with a back thrown in as well

Being from a core branch like Electrical, almost 80% of the Junta was opting for GATE. The coaching for the GATE exams started in June, with almost 5-6 hour classes being held daily. In comparison, the nearby TIME centre was going to start classes for CAT with alternate days 2-hour classes. Needless to say, that was it! The decision was made purely keeping in mind the convenience and the ease of going to the classes! Also, I had registered for CAT (while I was in my 3rd year) for testing the unchartered territories of MBA entrance examinations. The result was nowhere near to what I had expected:

CAT Oct 2013 : 88.xx %ile

I became a bit over-confident. I was sure of scoring 95 %ile in the next CAT exam. IMT-G was my dream college (my hometown being Ghaziabad). The next year I started skipping classes, missed (or didn't want to give) all but two of the AIMCATs. Performance in those two was dismal : 85 %ile and 67 %ile. I didn't give the remaining mocks, being afraid of the fact that I would touch new lows. With 2 months remaining, I became  much more serious in my preparation : gave all the sectional tests, and hoping against hope that I would touch that magical figure of 95 which would  fetch me a call from IMT-G. The CAT 2015 exam went well : attempted around 65 questions. All the score predictors were indicating 97-98 percentile. I was happy. Then came the result, again nowhere near to what I had expected:

CAT Nov 2014 : 89.xx %ile

All of my dreams were shattered. Didn't want to give any more exams. Meanwhile, my self esteem was also on an all-time low after being rejected by companies during on campus placements. I was rejected 5 times in total (including TCS two times!!, AQ, Honda Motors, Sterlite). Wasn't even allowed to sit for Wipro, Tata Chemicals, etc. owing to my 62.7% marks in B.Tech. I had also registered for other exams such as XAT, SNAP, etc.

Didn't want to give XAT (the toughest of all). However, my mother insisted and said to not miss any exam. Gave XAT with nothing on my mind. Attempted the paper randomly. Didn't think twice before answering any question. Marked the answers even if I was 20% sure . Heck I even correctly attempted a probability question ( a topic which I hadn't touched since my IIT preparation days). The Result, again, nowhere near to what I had expected :

XAT 2015 : 98.97 %ile : astonished:

I didn't knew if it was for real or not. I had all three calls : BM, HRM and GMBA. This was the period in my life (from the day of the result until my GD/PI) during which I gave my all. I knew I could not afford to lose now. Gave both the GDPIs. They went well. In both the PIs, the interviewers were all along pulling my leg and asking questions about my low grads and 12th marks. However, I was able to somehow convince them otherwise . I was sure of a convert, esp. in HRM, as that interview had went exceptionally well (compared to my last 5-6 interviews). The final result:

REJECT in All Three Programs

I was back to square-one. Smoked around  15-20 cigarettes that day in my hostel room. Later that evening, things took  a quick turn and XL declared the published results as void, owing to some errors on their part. The updated results were to come within 2-3 days. This time though, I did not have any expectations. Was prepared to handle rejects in all three again. However to my surprise, on the result day, there was some encouragement for me  as I was waitlisted in all three programs (more than 200 in all three). I was satisfied with myself for coming so close to a coveted seat in one of the best B-Schools in the country.  One and half months of waiting, and here I am thanking all those 288 people who have decided to pursue their dreams elsewhere.  

Finally converted HRM at XLRI : A journey that started in January ends on a sweet note in June!

PS. : Never ever miss an Exam (I even gave GATE 2015 !! didn't qualify though )
