@mads.iitkgp  as  Nuke deal said it was back in 2012 when i had 88.31  with no old IIM call and  converts I had  were NITIE and all IIT s except bombay ...then taught of gathering some more exp and another try for one more time but CAT -2013 was a disaster for me so I had no option but to wait for one more year   and yes as you said NITIE is really a good college definitely worth doing and better than all new IIMs infact even better than K  and I (IMO )....One of my friend of ST category and below average acads got package of 17.5 in NITIE and such things can happen only in NITIE ..

Are there any chances of getting PGPM? My preferences - pgpm, pgpim, pgphrm. I got selected for pgphrm. If there's no chance of getting my first preference, then I would like to know now... Arranging 2.5 lakhs and making the payment, only to find out a high waitlist number is heartbreaking. 

  • True man. Arranging the money for different colleges simu.... 15m.
Anshul Gupta @IIMkePAR 184

True man. Arranging the money for different colleges simultaneously is actually heartbreaking. I liked the system of MICA. It asked just 50,000 Rs. to stay in the waitlist. A person is interested would anyway pay the complete fees once selected and a person not interested would not leave those 50,000 with MICA and move on. So 50,000 is a pretty reasonable amount. 

It was problematic for me to explain it to my father why I need 2.5 lakhs. Everyone gets confused when I explain the system of upgradation .

Sorry for posting my query on this thread but I need as many pair of eyes on this as possible. I'm a 2014 jobless (got placed in two big mnc's but had to drop their job offers due to some reason) GEM pass out with average acads all throughout. Gave cat 14 and converted pgdm finance at lal bahadur shastri instt of management. Now I'm in a dicey situation here. I had my interview at HCL yesterday for a pkg of 2.75 lpa and the result is awaited. 25 April is the last date to submit the first installment for the fees at the college. My query is whether I should submit the fees or not?

Sharing my interview experience and insights gained from interacting with current students and fellow aspirants at K,I,L. Converted I and L


We had a RAT. General topics covered:

1) Range and domain of a function

2) Know all standard derivative formulas and how to find derivative of x.y or x/y etc

3) Inverse functions

4) Know all standard Integration formulas

5) Sketch the graph of given function

6) Quadratic equation problems, roots

7) Sum of series, AP/GP

8) Matrices. You are given a matrix A. Find A^2, A^3 etc

9) Basic of logarithm, only concept-not in depth

Some areas did not have RAT. Economics had the above RAT paper along with LR/DI + essay.

This was followed by interview. The panel expects you to have done reading or have knowledge in your area so that they can ask questions on it.

Accommodation was not provided. So you have to stay in hotels/ ask them to get accommodated in MDC in IIMK  campus which costs around 2500/day. Canteens are good and provide room service if you ask them.


First round was RA-T had 2 sections of 1 hour each. First section is like CAT. 60 questions in 60 minutes and there are really tough questions and they did not disclose about negative marking. The top 10 Qs were tougher, so its a good idea to skip the start and get on to simpler ones. They had Qs from probability, permutation/combination, DI, and simpler Engish Qs on grammatical errors, RC. The key is to solve a few Qs from each section. Try to cover as many sections as you can.

Second section has a short passage followed by 3 Qs asking your views on the passage, any public figure who reminds u of the passage etc. Then write an essay on any 1 out of 3 topic given--this needs a bit of current affairs knowledge so that you can write effectively. This section was enjoyable.

If selected, second round are interviews in IIM I campus. The current students organised an interaction session the day before the interviews and doled out lot of helpful tips and patiently answered all our questions.

The panel was very cool and chilled out, so things went well. This is the general structure:

1) If you have less that 4-5 years workex, you will be asked your favourite subject in Graduation/Engg and asked 4-5 Qs from it. Maybe asked to draw graphs and explain, they will tweak the equation and ask you to plot the graph.

2) More than 4-5 years workex, they may or  may not ask.And they do understand if you say u cannot recollect. Qs will be centred on workex/ chosen subject area.

Accommodation is provided in hostels and Mess is available.

IIM L--Area OM

Direct interviews if selected. 4 members in the panel. They were quite chilled out. General Qs were:

1) Tell me about urself

2) Why FPM after working for XX years?

3) Coursework is very rigorous, how will you cope? 

(The main thing is to convince the panels that you are aware of what you are getting into, you possess the qualities to excel and justify the funds they invest in you.)

4) About subject area, research area, was grilled on a few concepts.

However, the panel kept asking "How will u cope" after almost every question, even technical ones. I patiently answered it every time.

Accommodation was provided in Guest house (Patanjali) and buffet food at Chankya, interview at Manthan. All there are in a straight line just within 2 minutes walking distance.Room has AC, TV, attached bath. Food is awesome and campus is serene. Arrangements are meticulous and well planned, so you can concentrate on the interview, and not worry about where to stay, what to eat etc. 

The document verification and interview process was managed by current FPM students, so you get to interact with them for some last minute gyan.

General pointers:(Few based on my experience, majority based on interaction with current students)

1) It is very important to be calm and confident, if you get nervous, you cannot perform well.

2) Tell me about urself

(What I followed, you may follow what works for you): 

1) About Grad/Post grad

2) About workex

3) Motivations, career aspiration, goals etc

4) Some quality of urself which justifies your research interest or ur interest in FPM.

5) Ended with a single line about research area.

3) If you have considerable workex, it helps to read up textbooks on the subject matter, research papers by profs, do a part time/full time course etc. This helps you convince yourself and the panel that you are genuinely interested and panel can question you on those topics.

4) The panel does not have a fixed question set, they frame it based on ur replies on Tell me abt urself and Why FPM and subsequent questions. So utter something only if u know it well, else you will be trapped with no escape.

5) You may not know everything, so lead the panel to ask you questions on what you know rather than what you don't know. So its important to frame answers and throw in keywords on which u can withstand grilling.

6) Be honest when asked: Do u have other calls? Which IIM will u choose? And why? So have a one line reply for a unique quality on that particular institute in mind.

7) If you don't know an answer admit it, they get angry if u bluff.

8) A lot of people also turn to FPM as they are frustrated with their present jobs, however it is not a good idea to admit it openly. They could interpret that since you are running away from ur job, u will run away from FPM too.

9) The most important part is to convince yourself about FPM. Once thats in place, you are bound to do well. 

Last but not the least, thanks to @gajamani , @saurabhlumarrai for their guidance and patiently answering my queries.

Thats all, hope it helped. Feel free to PM for any help!

@ishi.2811 are IMI and fore on the same level??

Ishani Sharma @ishi.2811 24

@adityashukla002 : if you compare general pgdm toh imi is better but going for a course like b&fs whose future prospects are not known and whose current batch has only 17 students..fore surely has an upper hand! One of my senior is in fore and he is pretty satisfied with the curriculum and exposure while the other at general pgdm imi has asked me not to take admission in b&fs. But yes if you are interested in HR then you should surely take imi.

Hello Everyone 1) I saw previously posted info  , Where Gaurav dora sir has mentioned NSE has not visited and no student is selected taken as NSE was offering low package 3.9 lakh. But in the Recruiter list NSE is mentioned. So sir has NSE really visited at 3.9 lakh ?                                                                                     2) I counted that  from website the number of recruiter are total 96 as click labs and Zomato name is repeated twice , but you have mentioned the number of recruiters are 107 .  Is this the same report of 2012-14 batch. ? only title is changed to 2013-2015. ?  Please clarify ?
