Guys, is it logical to do a PGDM now and an Executive MBA 5-7 years later (hopefully, after paying off the loans and saving enough for it)? I mean, will an Executive MBA be redundant after a PGDM?

@greatheights123 , so it will be redundant? I was wondering, if I don't get a good job offer after PGDM, and if my career is stuck, will an Executive MBA from a better institute help me get a better job?

@serious-sam , hmm... Executive programs in all Ivy League bschools have placements at par with their PGDM programs, right?

Hey..! Many of you have doubts regarding the WL movement. I will just give you a simple example.

There are two Aspirants A and B. A's preferences were PGPM/PGPHRM/PGPIM and B's prefrence was PGPM only.

After the results A was allotted PGPIM, which was the third preference and B was directly put into WL.

Now A will be in WL for PGPM as it was his first preference. Suppose A's WL no for PGPM is 15 and for PGPHRM is 5 and B's WL no is 14 for PGPM(This is based on overall merit rank for each course)

In this case B will convert PGPM before A.

There might be a case that A will first get upgraded to PGPHRM and then to PGPM based on availability.

In the above case if A doesn't pay the seat allocation fees for PGPM, he is removed from the WL.

I hope the WL movement becomes clear now. Any queries pertaining to WL movement, please continue on this post only.

Congrats to all the converts. I have a query here.

I will be joining bank as a PO in 2-3 months from now (don't know at which place). However, my real goal is MBA. I was scoring well in mocks last year but couldn't do well in CAT 14.

Now the real problem is that I havent started prep yet and its kind of difficult to know where to start it from. So, I was thinking of joining a coaching centre to push start my prep. O heard TIME-CP is really good. Now, should I go for time cp or is there any other coaching centre worth joining (it should be one of the bests and please dont say byju's).

Seeking your expert comments

PS - I already have aimcat test series and I wish to join cl and ims' too. So, is CL-CP good enough?  because joining CL would serve both my purposes.

^Lol.... u r nt alone my fren

But I was a part of their process last year 2...... I scored 10/15 last tym n missed out by a mark....n i hd 99.46 last tym......99.46 and 99.71 me there's a difference of arn 2 mrks at least..... so imo a 9/15 will do the trick for me this tym..... which will tk me to 70 (61.2 + 9=70.2)

ayush jain @a-jay 863

So many factors affect the cutoff.Last time,interviews were scheduled after all the results.So, a few ppl who had joined L/k/xlri did nt bother coming to interviews.Competition would be a lil tighter this yr IMO.And I really hope it remains swhre around 70.I ll have strong chances then u gonna prefer fms over L?

Only a single rail track exists between stations A and B on a railway line. One hour after the northbound super fast train N leaves station A for station B, a south-bound passenger train S reaches station A from station B. The speed of the super fast train is twice that of a normal express train E, while the speed of a passenger train S is half that of E. On a particular day, N leaves for B from A, 20 min behind the normal schedule. In order to maintain the schedule, both N and S increased their speeds. If the super fast train doubles its speed, what should be the ratio (approximately) of the speeds of passenger train to that of the super fast train so that the passenger train S reaches exactly at the scheduled time at A on that day?
