I have given 3 bulls eye mock tests. I find the level pretty high. Is the CAT really this tough? The level of questions i have been solving in my coaching classes is nowhere close to the level in bulls eye mock. It confuses me as I think I am not adequately prepared for CAT. Please help.

Level of bulls mocks are pretty high..  Don't get disheartened.  Along with bullseye try cracku(free tests)  and cl/time mocks.  I heard aimcats this year have reduced their level of difficulty. Cl is also manageable.  So try these :)

Hey PUYS I am extremely confused and I need some advice, I am in my final sem of Btech

X - 85 ; XII -70, B.Tech- 70 ; GEM

Took CAT for first time and scored  96.61, and converted (almost, 1 digit waiting) kashipur, Udaipur WL850 .

Drop is not an option, will have to join TCS.

Should I give in to kashipur as my profile is not at all a good one, or should I appear for CAT again.Even if i'll get a very good percentile I wont be able to convert old IIMs(thanks to my profile) so is it advisable to leave kashipur and go for job + cat or should I join.

And yeah In case if I join how difficult it is to be a good performer at IIM, given that English is not my strong hold.

Deep Chaudhari @dchaudhari9

I'm also having similar profile, scored 98.xx percentile, didn't get call from any of ABCLIK, converted XIMB-BM, but yet joining Infosys, cause we can always convert old IIMs by scoring 99.5+ in next 2 to 3 attempts, and if that is too much, we can also convert good colleges like MDI by 97-98 in CAT and IIFT or XLRI as well......Also do read this article :

http://www.pagalguy.com/articles/my-stint-at-iim-raipur-19356092, which will definitely help you in taking a wise step!!!

Nilay Sharma @nilay26191 3

Perhaps your line of thought should be inclined to ask the following questions in that order- 1. Why MBA without work ex? Do I know which companies/sector I would like to work for post MBA? 2. Am I going to just fill up CAT Form for IIMs in subsequent years because the criteria will be different for other top institutes  and your profile won't be a problem everywhere(not that it is a huge problem for older IIMs either given you score in excess of 99.5 next year)? 3. Do I not want to work for an IT firm for various reasons - In which case I'd suggest you can look for other job prospects. Am I low on self confidence? The most important thing is not to join the best IIMs but to have a direction in which you want your career to grow. Of course, the better the college, the quicker and mightier the gains. But even with new iims you could end up there a little later. My only advice to you would be to not shy away from working twice as hard. Figure out your interests and stream line them. An MBA should happen only after the ground work that will leverage the programme for you in better ways. Trust me, it wouldn't still harm if you sat at home to figure out the right career path now than look for it later. Meanwhile, you can prepare for CAT again. Your english doesn't seem all that bad. And 96.xx isn't a bad first attempt though you'll have to work very hard to improve from there. Sky is the limit. Good luck!

Hello Guys!!!!! There is a lot happening around-- acknowledgement, refund policy, mail, choices,..etc and ppl r complaining that seniors r not guidin them...etc. Unfortunately two of d active seniors(Including me) on this page are also part of Placement committee. Due to hectic work we were not able to respond to ur queries properly. My sincere apologies. Lemme give answers to some general queries here:          

1. ACKNOWLEDGMENT-- If u had already paid d fee and yet to get d acknowledgement or change in status, pls don't worry. It takes some time.                   2. Refund policy-- IRMA follows AICTE norms in refund policy. So just drop a mail to admissions office and wait for a while b4 u get a response.                                            3. First come first serve mail- We ourselves have no clue on why n how this has happened. Several ppl have bcom apprehensive after this type of mail. But nothing to panic. As a participant of PRM @ IRMA I  can definitely say that this is one of d best B-Schools in the country. So pls don't go panic over this mail.                                        4. IRMA or Other B-Schools-- In the first hand comparing B-Schools is strictly prohibited on PG. But  I know this is an inevitable thing at this point of time bcoz even I was in the similar ship last year.  As far as IRMA is concerned, it is d best place for RM in the country. Also IRMA opens gates for a plethora of opportunities after ur PRM course. There r diversified profiles at offer for IRMANs besides Rural Management profiles. However there will b a lot of factors that come into play while opting for a B-School. Despite all d advices, it is d personal interest that matters d most. So act accordingly. ATB :). In case of any further queries pl feel free to revert to us.

PRM 35, IRMA(2014-16)

nonames please @bellcatagain 4

easiest technique would be to club 26 and 19 together. Odd power, so we can represent it as 55k, now club 27 and 28 together, again 55k. So 55k+55k=110K/110 remainder=0
