Sadly I am left with no other option but to skip it  :(

 I suggest everyone  who is facing this issue to drop a mail to them. They might understand it then.

Releasing a book slot has occurred many times before as well. And with CAT result unannounced  form filling date is definitely going to be extended.

@Blueline @purvijain seriously yr,they should have stated clearly about leaving the option blank.I too stay in delhi and will have to shell out some 8000-9000 for  this interview.

From a group of 545 contenders, a party has to select a leader. Even after holding a series of meetings, the politicians and the general body failed to reach a consensus. It was then proposed that all 545 contenders be given a number from 1 to 545. The they will be asked to stand on a podium in a circular arrangement, and counting would start from the contender numbered 1 . The counting would be done in a clockwise direction. The rule is that every alternate contender would be asked to step down as the counting continued, with the circle getting smaller and smaller, till only one person remains standing. Therefore the first person to be eliminated would be the contender numbered 2.

One of the contending politicians, Mr. Chanakya, was quiet proficient in calculations and could correctly figure out the exact position. He was the person remaining in the circle. Sensing foul play the politicians decided to repeat the game. However, this time, instead of removing every alternate person , they agreed on removing every 300th person from the circle. All the other rules were kept intact. Mr. Chanakya did some quick calculations and found that for a group of 542 people, the right position to become a leader would be 437. What is the right position for a whole group of 545 as per the modified rule? 

A.3

B.194

C.249

D.437

Why is there no updates in the iimcat.ac.in. At least they can post "The results have been delayed. The result date will be announced soon" in the home page. 

They can't even acknowledge the delay

Very pathetic to say the least.

and moreover you dnt decide what I write and what I dont...it completelky my prerogative....It was completely related...He said they shud have atleast acknowledged the fact that there is a delay and notified to the 1.7 lakh people out there..and I responded to that saying that yes we have unprofessional people sitting there who cudnt notify the eager minds of a lakh and a half students...Whats wrong in it..

Ahh OK so u meank the iims are selecting future leaders... I misunderstood it as politics because of the first line and hence thought otherwise, apologies. But still unproffessionalism has many facets this example is but a small example... Not declaring result dates and/or informing candidates isn't a valid enough reason to discount the professionalism or competence of the iim faculty in selecting 'future leaders' let's not generalise everything

The other way is to read more stuff which is heavy on word usage. You pick any international magazine or subscribe to any international blog, you will learn new words for sure. During exam scenario, it becomes important to understand the contextual meaning of a specific word.

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 why..so 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 issues....so 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 PM..so thought of updating it here itself:

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