With the C interviews ending yesterday, I'm pretty sure all the main interviews for most of us have come to an end. Now comes the short (perceivably loooong) and anxious wait before the results.. Wishing everybody here the very best of luck for all the final stage results!
Apart from the CWC going on, any suggestions on what to do to keep the mind away from the results?
PS: I started watching Modern Family and I love it!

Q.Whatis IPRS, what is the IPRS process and how often is the report issued? Where can we see the full and the latest IPRS?
The Indian Placement Reporting Standards (IPRS) is a framework that aims at standardisation of placement reports to make them more transparent and easy to understand, more comparable and reliable for making decisions. IPRS specifies the standard format in which the placement statistics will be reported across function, sector, and location. The aggregate statistics to be published include minimum, maximum, median and average salaries across every parameter,so that B-school employment reports are used in a fair and accurate manner to attract students and employers and to enable aspirants make a well informed choice, thereby resulting in more realistic expectations on their part when they join a B-school.
SPJIMR was amongst the first to sign up for IPRS alongside IIM Ahmedabad and is the only institute we believe to submit copies of offer letters for the audit purpose. Thus it takes a little longer time than usual for the IPRS report to be published. The reports are available on the IPRS website and can be downloaded for viewing purpose.
