Mandar travelled first 1/3 rd distance of his journey at a speed of 40 km/hr, 1/3 rd of the remaining distance at 50 km/hr and the remaining distance at 90 km/hr. Find his average speed over the entire journey.

PGs please help me with this problem conceptually. i.e., instead of taking LCM of 40, 50 & 90 and then doing total distance / total time, is there a conceptual way so that this can be solved just orally. A better enlightened method.

IIM Kozhikode,

Please release the exact cutoff of index score along with the procedure used to calculate, specially parameters to calculate the CAT component. 

There is a lot of confusion like people at 90%le getting a call but 94%le did not. 

It would really help people who were expecting a call but dint get it. I believe we deserve to know at least that. This simple gesture on your part would leave a lot of people(specially me) at peace.

Thanks in advance.

Koustav Pal @allan89 6,046

I know this might sound harsh, but you have to come to terms with the fact that you will not get the official reply from the institute regarding cut-offs, unless you go for an RTI query. Even we dont have access to such information.

What effect will grad percentage of <60 will have on placements at FORE?

Prateek Malhotra @prateekm28 33


Yes some companies do shortlist on the basis of percentage of marks scored in grad but that is not the only criteria of shortlisting. Don't worry scoring below 60 is not a crime and thankfully most organizations understand this, so relax! 

I am sorry I don't have the specific data of placements for such students but be assured if you are good and score good grades here you are likely to be placed in a good company. After all, marks are not the only thing that matter in life. ;)  Skill set is much more cherished by the companies rather than marks.

Hope it Helps !

Thank you.

Will we receive a confirmation mail as well?

Also just the admit/score card or the filled in form too?

Saptarshi Das @sky-aimer 58

You won't receive a confirmation regarding the same from the institute. However, if you are sending the documents through a reliable courier service, then you can always track the status of the delivery.

Just send the admit/score card, but mention the SIMSR application number on the admit/score card and also on top of the envelope.

@yash0906 for me the sectionals were quite balanced 97.96%ile qa (102.06 scaled) and 97.60%ile va(87.57 scaled) for an oa of 99.09(194.81).. guess what they said about balanced scores in their shortlist criteria didn't make much of a difference in the end.
