CONVERTED in PGDHRM IIMRanchi...got mail @8:30PM today. Not joining though!
From my learning, I am writing prep material with best possible approaches. This includes only concepts as of now. Hope it helps!
The average age of members in my family excluding me is 27 years but including me is 22.25 years. If my family includes only myself, my parents and my siblings and there are two different pairs of members whose ages differ by 3 years and 4 years, then which of the following can be the age of any one member of my family? (All the ages are natural numbers)
Would be helpful with explanation.

My journey My way!
Have been waiting for this moment since July 2013 (the day I
joined pagalguy) and finally I get to have it, like live it, feel it, smile and
cry with it. Being a general, non-technical female (I know comes to people's
mind that girl's quota and commerce background will add points to my score and
get me in) I did have my share of ups and downs which I guess made me learn a
lot more which I would have missed if was in some college this time! So the
Ischooling : So I have been thinking of doing MBA since 2007. Belonging to a middle class family and having cousins who were part of all these big B-schools, it inspired me and made me work harder to score those 90+% in boards and a 100% in maths in class 10th (that was the only time i worked my ass off) and was pretty sure that I am smart enough to crack the feline and be part of IIM A (dream school). Times passed and class 12th was kind enough to me and i scored 90+ even though i had my right elbow fractured and was not studying for straight 2 months. So, yes school went on fine with parents being happy, having expectations and with other problems.DU :
Was lucky to be a part of north campus, DU and studied B.Com(H) from Ramjas College and did all the fun which you expect from a DUite to do. Made friends, attended fests, interned, had a break up and life took a different turn. Once a girl was so excited about preparing for MBA , left her plans to pursue it for the time being and wrote CAT just for fun like literally. Wrote CAT in 2011 with 0 prep, didn't even knew about the pattern properly etc and still hoped that yeah i am smart enough, I'll score 80 something. The day result came, it was below 50. I was devastated, though it was normal because I wasn't prepared but those expectations I had from myself were shattered. So a failed relationship, losing my grandpa the same day CAT results came out, pathetic CAT score, failed placements and an irritating professor as mentor for the project, my 3rd year was pretty screwed up!! I had zero self-confidence and thought of myself being a waste and a burden on my parents. They didn't knew about it much but yea knew I was depressed, but i guess life had its own plan and left Delhi to explore Bangalore
(my first love). Spent 2 weeks there, came back.
Job : Managed to secure a job with a startup in Gurgaon ( a place where my ex belonged to and I loathed) and started working. Initially it was tough , literally, but then yes you eventually adjusts with things around. Worked harder, was in the top of the lists and was involved with other stuff there itself so had myself pretty occupied. Around birthday (January) I relaised "yaar aur nai hoga yeh, have to get back to the original self" and I told my parents about the discussion of pursuing MBA again making them satisfied "ki haan ab kuch hoga iska" Asked my cousins about the same and planned that I'll take the night shift and study in the day time but on my own, no coaching. Mind mai apni value abhi b kum nai hui thi (still thought of myself a smarty) and will crack it on my own. Registered with TIME for the test series and had a friend from XIMB to pan out my stuff and help me with it. Boy!! Those aimcats gave me nightmares, scoring as low as single digit percentiles. Still something in me kept me moving on and in August I resigned thinking I'll be full time devoted to it as was not able t manage job and study together. Manager felt bad but had to do this and packed my stuff and came back home. So living in Delhi/NCR for 4 + years and coming back to Yamunanagar (small town) gave me jitters. All hanging out, weekend parties etc all came to a stop. Kept my cool and promised myself with lucrative offers if I end up good.
Struggle time : actual period
CAT : 50 %ile
SNAP : 86 %ile
XAT : 75.75%
And all other were straight rejects.
Managed to secure calls from TAPMI, IFMR, IMT Nagpur but the worst they didn't get converted too. Only IMT Nagpur did. My all friends had converts and were happy and gay with their new friends. It was a time I want no one should ever go through. A failure which makes you think yourself as a big loser, a failure, a burden, good for nothing girl. When you are so low, everything about you turns to be negative, you start thinking about how ugly you are, nobody loves you, people are moving away, they are happy and you are just sulking, you cry and cry yourself to sleep. Watching your parents try to pacify you but deep down you know how much they want you to be successful, taunts etc just was too much. Because of all this, I stopped eating and ignored my health and fell sick. Jaundice and acute intestinal infection took over me and 3 months on bed direct (April-May-June).This period was horrible, used to cry at nights because of pain and I guess the failure because I was scared about my future and cry till the point my mum used to make me sleep around 3 AM. This continued for 3 months, injections of pain killers, mum dad taking leaves for handling me etc, the only best part I wasn't admitted. During this time, I met a person on PG and he helped me to find a way out for all this. He asked me to introspect as it wasn't taking my time much and note down that what wrong I did. I agreed after a bit nagging and started the introspection and realized:
1. I ignored the basic pattern and got emotionally attached to questions.
2. I spent most of the time here on PG bakaring.
3. I wasn't serious or organised with my course.
4. I thought of myself as a person who'll clear CAT without prep.
5. Was too involved in worldly affairs and vulnerable.
With all this I thought of working but was refused because of stamina/health issues and thought of writing CAT the last time in 2014. I was 23 by then, unemployed, good for nothing lass but still my parents agreed to it (not the marriage issue but they wanted me to settle professionally)
I gave up chocolates, I can die for them but yes did. Just to bring myself in discipline and joined CL in july for classes. Went for my classes, studied hard, did my questions, was off PG as in bakar and was a part of the FB group but realised that cannot study this way and went for chats and all just to ease my mind out. Joined swimming to keep myself involved as was still at home and made every effort to burn the midnight oil and with the support of my bestie and people around wrote CAT and all other entrances.
first one was CMAT sept, result came around midnight and I managed a 95%ile, I
know not a great one but a person who has seen 40-50, it was heaven. Called up
Ankita (besite) and cried my heart out. I know I wouldn't get calls but then it
was 90+. Was a bit confident and with an added effort wrote CAT. So i am this
person who gets nervous before exams and happened this time too. After CAT, the
next day i had IIFT and realised in the middle of the exam, IIFT is not my cup
all the results came and TISS, IIFT was a straight reject. So as I had SNAP, i
was hell bent to convert Symbiosis as Pune it was, a place I so wanted to be a
part of. I knew I would clear SCMHRD cut off but was sceptical about SIBM-P,
again tension times :/ but somehow I did
So this season I had/have calls from SIBMP, SCMHRD, SIIB, SIBMB, XIMB HR, IMI, TAPMI, KJ FORE, that is it.
The pune phase was altogether an amazing journey and rickety one but yes made me so so so strong.
Converted SCMHRD and am waitlisted for SIBMP which I have no hopes for to clear. So will be joining SCMHRD for now and will have my badge too :mg:
made so many friends in this whole journey who are so close to my heart and
have stood by me and seeing them saying "we are so happy for you, you deserved
it" made me cry. Some of them left me but yes I cannot control that. The whole
journey made me kill myself, made me proud. My parents cried with me the day I
was part of the SCMHRD merit list.
in us keeps us moving, we just have to find that something and we'll succeed
PS - I know it is a long one but wanted to share with my PG family.
PPS - Ignore the grammatical errors as direct from the heart and no proof reading has been done.
PPPS - I did it (somehow) so anyone can do it! J
PPPPS - any sort of feedback is welcomed!
