First IMS of the season, and I screwed up.
QA : 56, VA : 45, OA :101
Made 12 errors in VA. Dunno how.
Paper was standard. RC's and a couple of LR's on the tougher side.
QA was easy to medium difficulty.
140+ is a good score for this paper.
IIM Ranchi PGDHRM. I got an invitation mail, filled the online profile form and sent post in Feb. So is the admission process over? Couldnt find any separate shortlist or anything.

1. Managers, especially the successful ones, should guard against ascribing to themselves qualities and attributes which they may not have, or may have in a measure much lass than what they think they have!
(A) External appearances can be deceptive.
(B) To initiate action without being in possession of full facts can lead to disastrous results.
(C) Also one should develop confident: who can be used as sounding boards in order to check one's own thinking against that of the others.
(D) It is also useful to be receptive to feedback about oneself so that a real understanding of the 'self' exists.
6. A false perception can be like wearing coloured glasses - all facts get tainted by the colour of the glass and the mind interprets them wrongly to fit into the perception.
Seniors please help with following doubts
1. I am going to apply for loan. Do I have to take 1.76 lac with me for registration or will it be adjusted through loan.
Please help as adjusting for 1.76 lacs is very difficult task for me and it would be helpful if I know it at the earliest.
2. What are the documents required for income based scholarship (My family income is below 1 lac).
3.Can I get loan from SBI if I reach Lucknow if I arrive around 10th June and apply immediately or do I have to wait for 15th June to apply for loan.
4.Can I apply for loan through my uncle's bank account as my father doesn't have bank account.
Batch Strength of Top 10 Institutes :
I think the reason why many institutes are in Top 10 is due to rel. small batch size . For eg . If SPJ were to increase its batch size from 240 to 480 definitely qlty of placements will take a hit .
Here are next 10 (On pop demand :P)
Rank 11 -- MDI------240
12: IIFT D ----------~200
13 : IIM S -------------150
14-20 New IIMs (100-200) , NITIE (300+) , SOM (115) and NMIMS (500+)
P.S. -- > ISB, IIN, IIPeeEm didn't participate

Pre- Exam: Had taken CAT in 2012 when TIME used to conduct classes inside our campus. That year it didn't go as per planned, landed up with 99.12...no calls apart from K and I, decided to skip the interviews.
Next year, I planned against taking CAT to build some substantial work-ex. So, finally in 2014, the journey started again. This time I joined test series of both TIME and CL but no classes because it was not feasible to travel 100kms one way for the nearest centre. Infact, even if the centre would have been near, I would have opted against going for classes because I personally feel that having taken CAT once before, this time it was more important to revise the concepts given there won't be many new ones.
My superior was very considerate of the fact that I was preparing for CAT and he never put me under undue pressure and especially never on the weekends...I really really consider myself lucky with that.
After the news for the new format came, I enrolled for SIMCATs too and ultimately it turned out to be a very good decision given they were the closest to actual CAT. Towards the end, I concentrated on only IMS and CL mocks.
Years of Preparation- 4 months (2014) and around 6 months (2012)
Preparation Strategy- [I took almost all mocks from my room]
Weekdays- maybe a few office hours and the evenings were spent mainly in analysing the mocks- 3-4 hours analysis including even those questions which I got correct because the solutions might contain some trick which will help me save those crucial seconds during the actual CAT. Apart from analysis, I used the evenings to solve the CL sectionals which in my opinion were the best across all institutes.
Weekends- Generally, 2 mocks per weekend (1 on Sat, 1 on Sun) (again lucky to have a 5-day working week)...followed by the similar 3-4 hours analysis. Any analysis I missed on the weekends, I would do them on the weekdays.
Weekdays: Generally took 1 day off per 2 weeks so as to adjust to the CAT morning slot timings and accordingly chose the slots for the proctored mocks. Apart from that, I took around 1 mock per 3 days...but not cutting down on the analysis.
Weekends: Continued a similar strategy throughout.
Favourite subject or
topic (if any)-
Everything about Quant and rarely anything about VA
Any suggestion or experience worth sharing- Although it may sound clichéd, I would repeat it- Very important to not cut down on the analysis part(including the correct ones)...attempt less mocks but make sure each and every one is analysed thoroughly.
Exams taken(CAT/XAT/GRE/GMAT/others)- CAT, XAT
Results- CAT: 99.83, XAT: 99.88
Calls- All IIMs, FMS, XLRI BM, HRM
Post- Exam: Initial few days after the interview schedules very
announced, I got busy with preparing the SOP for IIMB (turned out to be futile
in the end
I was always (and
still am) weak in GK, so put extra effort in following current affairs
rigorously. Apart from that the normal preparation regarding literally every
word I mentioned in the forms...sadly, the profs always found something out to
screw me on
Interview experiences (in brief)- Have shared almost all my interview experiences on the DT thread except the Big One...will do that very soon
Any suggestion or experience worth sharing- Just be brutally honest about everything in front of the panelists
Converts- IIM A,C,L, XLRI BM (Didn't attend S, XLRI HRM and FMS interviews)
Suggestion for future aspirants- CAT is no rocket science. Just believe in yourself and the Holy Trinity are waiting to take you!
Looking forward to seeing some of you at WIMWI next year
