Y lies between 2 and 15, moreover it cannot be even.....leaves just 3/5/7/9/11/13, with y= 3 and 5 even the max. Value of the function ceases to reach 45....rest is doable in half a minute. So to answer your question, i have no better approaxh than this

@mayank030 by placing IIN so low in the list you just missed a karma point... it should be placed way ahead of IIMs... factors being roi, huge alumni base and multi-specialisation(like economics + bio) . although you may never get to know whats the use of studing such things altogether...;-)

Saurabh Raina @Dante_ftw1 1,542

FMS : Marketing

IIM L : Rest of the MBA specializations, GM/Consulting much better than FMS

FMS : Cost of MBA (including stay at PG) : 4-6 lakh

IIM L : Cost of MBA 10~lakh

FMS : Best ROI, location advantage, good initial placements, small batch size (You will realize it soon how important this can be).

IIM L : Decent ROI, IIM brand name helps in future, good initial placements, better campus life (hostel life), much better infrastructure.

So you decide.

the sum of the digits of a four digit number, consisting of non-zero digits, is a perfect square. The number formed by the first two digits and the number formed by the last two digits are perfect squares. If the number itself is a perfect square, then the difference between the second and the third digits of the number is?

Coriander Son @MakeINdharavi 82

calculating squares is quite easy with this trick......For any two digit number (say AB) between 25 and 75, the square will be CDEF where EF are the last two digits of (50-AB)^2 and CD is equal to AB-25 {or AB-25+the hundredth place digit of (50-AB)^2 if any}..........For any two digit number (say AB) between 75 and 100, the square will be CDEF where EF are the last digits of (100-AB)^2  and CD is equal to 2*AB-100 {or 2*AB-100+the hundredth place digit of (100-AB)^2 if any}

i simply made pairs of 2 digit square numbers that add up to give a square. was left with 4 options(1636,1681,2536,2581) in around 40 sec. had to do some multiplications to eliminate the other 3( almost 30-40 secs more). Thats why i asked for a shortcut

1) The management is very poor in handling the course and the students . They don't have any resources to run a b- school.

2)They hardly provide 25 hours on each subject , means they keep constant pressure on teacher to complete the course within this time.They even ask teachers to delete the topic if it requires more time.

3) In prospectus they write something else but in class they do something else.Everything is fake in BSE institute.At the time of admission tall promises are made but believe me everything is fake.

4)As far as the placement are concern the avg package is 2.5lac and that to in sales profile  means you have to sell insurance product etc . and that to is not sure that will they be able to provide you with that or not  because they were are not able to provide students for internship so what can you expect for the placement.Not a single student was place by the institute, all the students have got placement by their personal references.

5)The value of BSE institute is very poor in the market and the companies which come for placement ask for NSE certifications in the interview for placement.

6)And by the way all the student have got selected who have fill the application form , in my class many student have not even utter a single word in group discussion but then also they got selected.

7) Even i was very excited to take admission because of the brand value of BSE but seriously now I regret a lot.

8) Earlier the institute was having a tie-up with IGNOU but due to bad quality of teaching they took back their affiliation ,after that they  became autonomous. Now they have come  with new scheme of the Chitkara university to fool the students. 

9) I will suggest you do a 1yr full time program from NSE or go for a normal MBA or PGDM in finance. The best would be CFA.

10) for any details mail me akram814419@gmail.com

Plz talk to the students first before taking the admission because BSE institute ltd don't refund the fee at any cost.

MY PERSONAL ADVICE WOULD BE EVEN IF YOU HAVE SUBMITTED THE FEES ,LEAVE IT AND TAKE ADMISSION SOMEWHERE ELSE BUT ONLY IN  A AICTE APPROVED college

@lakshaykhatri  And btw we are not here to entertain you guys, if you're so concerned about what "India wants to know", then I'm sure that are a lot of issues that concern India right now that are way more important. Please divert your attention there too. 

This forum is for addressing queries, if you are here to have a gala time then please refrain. I would request you to not crack jokes at the cost of the institute.

I got calls from the new IIM's and my results are yet to come. currently i m working in IT and have 22 months of work ex. off late my work is getting really hectic and i work for almost 12 hrs everyday. I am planning to quit for my job and prepare for cat 2015. is this a bad move ? if so wat are the problems that i would face other than me screwing up cat ? or should i go for the last 6 IIM's if at all i get one ?  my profile Xth - 83 , XIIth - 91 , B.E - 7.1 , work ex - 22 months as of now , not much in extra curricular , NC-OBC.

Dont quit the job.. CAT is a big gamble.. you might even end up scoring lesser than what you did this time!!!! Joining NGO won't do you much good as far as handling the topic of quitting the job is concerned during the interviews IMO.
