Center: The Janpath Hotel, New Delhi
Profile: X 93.5%, XII 93.2%, IITD CGPA 8.7, CAT 99.99%ile, 6 month work-exp
WAT Topic: There should be a common currency in South Asia as in Europe. Time: 15mins
Ran out of space and time
(Preparation: 1/5, Performance: 3/5)
GD Topic: Same as WAT. Time: 15mins. People: 9
I was the second to speak and spoke for over half a minute. Contributed regularly in between with a point here and there. Very decent group I must say. In fact there was a 5 second lull when no body was speaking
(Preparation: 0/5, Performance: 3/5)
No. of panelists: 2 male profs (L & R) aged 50 & 40 yrs
Panel No: 2, S.No: 3
Panel Demeanour: Haha. You'll know soon.
R received me at the door and escorted me in. He asked my name cz they were calling in randomly the person who was closest to the interview room door. He took my form and started reading.
R: So tell me about yourself. (L cut him in between)
L: Wait, first tell me something. Did you go to school? (Sir I'm sorry?)
L: Which school did you go to? (DPS RKP)
L: I knew it. (To R) We should just ban these DPS people. (showing me my WAT) Is this how you write an essay? (I don't know what to say... Quiet for 10 seconds)
L: Where is the margin? Where is the topic? (Sorry sir but there was space crunch)
L: Didn't they teach you in school to draw margin? (Yes sir, they did)
L: Why haven't you drawn then? You just cheated your school. There was 8 out of 10 marks for presentation. You lost all 8. (Oh..)
R: So tell me about.. (again L cut him out)
L: Sorry to cut in again but can you just read aloud the first line that you have written in your essay? (shows me the WAT) (There should not be ... cutting me) Wow you just started on a negative note. I'm deducting 1 more mark for this. You've lost 9 now. (No problem sir
R: (he was grinning all this while) You look uncomfortable. Is everything ok? (Yes sir I'm fine)
R: so tell me about yourself. (I started with the usual.. he cut me out within 15 secs)
R: Explain what do you do at work. (cross-questioned me a lot. but looked ok with what I said)
L: (To R) Where is his sheet? (There was a sheet with some stuff written about me, not the form some other sheet they had) Oh look (To R) He comes from this thing which we always reject. (I don't know what he was pointing at in the sheet, heck I don't even know what was written in the sheet. I guess it was my CAT percentile, just a guess)
L: Asked questions related to my branch. (I answered, he kept asking why. I kept answering but he didn't stop asking why. He was asking in a cyclic manner so my answers always tended to end at the first answer I said)
L: See you don't even know about your branch. You've even cheated your college. Whole life you have cheated. (Oh..)
L: See, you should say if you don't know. Why are you repeating same answers? I'm going to keep asking why until you say you don't know.
L: What is difference between manufacturing and producing? (Took a guess)
L: If your mom is making chapatti, is she manufacturing or producing? (Producing)
L: Why not manufacturing? I think she is manufacturing no? (To R)
R: I think she is cooking (starts laughing)
L: She's cooking! (Hahaha)
R: What are your hobbies? (Sports)
R: Are you good at current events? (Not much)
Asked some questions. I couldn't answer much.
L: Have you got other calls? (Yes)
L: Which places? (All... A,B,C,...)
L: A,B,C,D,E,F,...? (Yes sir all)
R: How did your other interviews go? (I've only had C. It went pretty well.)
L: Oh did it? They didn't catch your cheating I suppose.
R: How do you think this interview is going? (Sir not too well, but it depends on how you're perceiving this to be)
L: (He remarked something about my sister being with a cheater or something I'm not sure. I told him I don't have a sister.)
R: Oh so you are a lone child? (I have a younger brother)
R: What does he do? (He's an undergrad)
R: Which college? (Yale University, USA)
R: Is he on scholarship? (Yes sir, 90%)
R: (Impressed) What about your father? (Sir he is an IAS Officer posted in Bihar. He is Principal Secretary General Administration right now.)
R: And your mother? (Sir she is a doctor. She is Additional Professor at AIIMS)
L asked some more questions about my branch. I answered some but then he again went into why? mode and I couldn't answer after that.
L: See I was happy somebody from production engineering came to the interview so that I can discuss things, but you don't seem to know anything. All your life you have cheated your school, your college. You've only played football your life it seems.
R: (to L) But his grad marks are very impressive.
L: How much has he got? 86%? That's nothing at IIT Delhi. IIT Delhi gives you marks for free. It gives you 69% (yes he said 69) for just attending the exam. People who get less than that means they didn't even attend the exam. (Sir, I'm ranked third in my department) Oh really? That means your batchmates are even worse than you. Facepalm.
L: Well, since you say you play football, I'm going to ask you about football and you better answer these. What is the diameter of the ball? (I'm not sure about the exact dimension) Why aren't you sure? See I knew it you don't even know how to play football. (Sir, I play football but I never looked into the exact dimensions of the ball.) OK what is the distance between the two goal posts? (100-110m) That's ok but why don't you know the size of the ball? Wouldn't you look at the ball before playing? If I give you a 3inch ball, will you play with it? No right, unless you are a toddler. Ok I'm done.
R: You can leave. Do you want to ask anything? (No sir)
L: Atleast you could have asked how do we think how your interview went. (Sir, it's ok. I'd rather not ask that.)
I thanked and left.
(Preparation: 2/5, Performance: 1/5)
(Well, even if I get in, I'm going to reject them. Sweet Revenge.)
Friends post ur oliveboard mock scores..we can further discuss strategies to improve our scores
A and B are the two opposite ends of a swimming pool and the distance between them is 420 metres. Ankur and Manu start swimming towards each other at the same time from A and B, with speeds in the ratio 5 : 9 respectively. As soon as any of them reaches an end, he turns back and starts swimming towards the other end. At what distance (in metres) from A will they meet when Manu is in his 13th round? Note: A to B is considered one round and B to A another round.
can we get it confirm from anywhere if we have call or not??

The frustrated aspirant.
A. Central planning has failed the world over.
B. Hope cannot be dropped from helicopters.
C. The people, especially in remote areas, must have the power and resources to script their future.
D. It needs to be built though good governance at the local level.
It is told to bring original CAT admit card and score card.. But only computer version is available. Printouts of them would suffice ?

My WAT PI process got finished on 19 Feb. I had a good interview and was able to answer all of the questions asked by the panel members. I felt satisfied with my performance. The WAT part was also OK.
My Profile is as follows:
X Marks : 86 %
XI Marks : 88.67 %
Graduation : 78.81 %
Work Ex : 2.6 Years
Category : NC OBC
CAT Score : 82.93 %
Can you please provide me some input what are my chances of getting selected and uptill when the final result would be out?
The thing here is that I have a notice period of 3 months in my company and I do need to raise an exit request prior 3 months of joining the institute. So based upon your experience it would be very helpful for me to take the decision as should I or should not raise the request for exit? I know I am sounding very impatient but I am really in a confused state :P.
