Diff between CAT and GMAT

1   U get ur score just after exam full transparency in GMAT. U also get to apply to 5 coll of ur choice without any extra fee.

The CAT ensures that colleges tied with them get benefit so they declare their results after the declaration of closing of application deadlines. U cant apply to 5 colleges as in GMAT.

2. Although GMAT has tougher algorithm than CAT its results are displayed just after the exam is over.

3.We Indian students have been made so desperate by whatever reason that we comply with anything and everything.

R=(5*rt5+11)^2n+1 find fractional part of this number . 

 let f is fractional part of this f=R-[R] 

 let a number X=(5*rt5-11)^2n+1

 X will lie in 0 < X< 1

 so R-X=(5*rt5+11)^2n+1-(5*rt5-11)^2n+1

 so R-X=2*(2n+1c1*(5*rt5)^2n*11+2n+1c3*(5rt5)^2n-2* (11)^3......

 so R-X=even number

 so [R]+f-X=even 

 so f-X=even-[R]

 so f-X=an integer (odd or even both possible)

 so f-X=0 

 bcz 0< f < 1

 0 < X < 1

so f-X=0 

so f=X=(5rt5-11)^2n+1

so fractional part is (5rt5-11)^2n+1


2nd question 


let X=(5-2rt6)^n


so R+f+G=2*(nc0*5^n+nc2*5^n-2*(2rt6)^2....

so [R]+f+X=even 

so f+X=integer 

so f+X=1 

so f=1-x so 1-(5-2rt6)^n________________________

Note - 1) in R=(a+b*rtc)^kif k is odd then f=X

fractional part will be f=(a-b*rtc)^n

2) and if k is even then f+X=1


example )find greatest integer less than or equal to (rt2+1)^6 

ANS- here n=6 means even 

so f+X =1 so 

f=1-x =1-(rt2-1)^6

so (rt2+1)^6 =integer+fraction

so integer=(rt2+1)^6-fraction

   = (rt2+1)^6-(1-(rt2-1)^6

  = (rt2+1)^6+(rt2-1)^6-1

Now solve (rt2+1)^6+(rt2-1)^6 by simple binomial expansion 

so integer=198-1

-continued from last page-

I knew A and C would not work out. Had still done a night out hoping for a miracle.
A came and as expected it was a ding. I absolutely was in awe of A and despite having XL and FMS and knowing I had messed up my interview, I wished I could get a convert.

Then came C. I thought of not even looking at the result as I had been kicked out of interview room unceremoniously.

And it was a straight convert for both PGDM and PGDCM :drinking:

It was a miracle happening right infront of me. Now in retrospect, I realized it was a really big stress interview and I maintained my calm at all point in time.

Finally Joka dream came true for me. It's like a big bollywood movie- things get screwed up and then comes the happy ending.
I would like to thank my parents- for being with me at every point in times- even at times when they had no clue about why i'm doing what i'm doing in life.
I would like to thank prem_ravi, R@J,harshadk, neha.visionary, naga,marijuana and many others for their constant motivation and help.
I would like to thank DT-10,SBT,BDT,BBBT for giving a place to hopeless loser like me in the team. DT-10(doc,bmr and everyone) deserves a special mention for it's awesome members- all 10 of them.
I would like to thank my gang in bangalore- rsriram84, shabadp, yogsconnect, apatchofsnow and cat_demon and all the puys in b'lore- kinji,mechie,PP, khatana and everyone with whom I had a great time here.
I would like to thank PG for giving me a great platform to connect to all this wonderful people and the whole PG fraternity .
I would like to thank SuX,snits,VV ,afc and utsi. SuX and Snits- you had more belief in me than maybe I had on myself \_____________0/

Edit: I think some of the last lines got deleted...don;t know updating them again->

Thanks to birbal bhai and prem bhai for all their motivation
(Sorry if I missed out somebody's name. )
(Lots of thanks eh? But then the fight has been little long too)

And finally thanks to the special person in my life..without her it would not have been possible.

Also, I have talked to her parents and they've no it's all settled

It's like a big bollywood movie where things get really nasty in interval and then comes the good old "Happy Ending".

Final result-
Converts- IIM C,L, FMS,IIFT-k
W/L- IIM-I (WL-51),XL (BM WL-29), NITIE(WL-89) (All 3 finally converted)

Finally joining Joka

Edit (Dec '14): I get this question asked lot of times in thought of updating it here itself:

Yeah I did end up marrying her. How could have I let her go after all this?

Latest Posts   

What a pleasant surprise this is. Sitting in my office 9 years ago (Oct, 2005), feeling amused at the creation of the first "Dream Team", I had proposed an Underdogs Team. Such was the emotional response to the proposal that the thread took a life of its own and the first UDT was created. It is odd to call it "first" because I had no idea the practice would get institutionalized (its like calling the First World War "first" before there was actually a "second"). 

Of course, this wasn't my ID then. I existed under another alias, created threads and controversies [and got banned ], cracked CAT & XAT and became a manager only to realize that the journey was better than the destination :) 

You the UDTians must know, you have a proud heritage.

All the best for the results. Most of us in the first UDT had got what we wanted. Hope the same for you. 

I could actually locate the long lost thread I started in the autumn of 2005. Here it is, in case you want to connect with your predecessors.
