Dada @rajbandi 107

A+B+C+D = 2400

A+C+D+E = 2400

A+B+D+E =2400


B+C+D+E =2400


4(A+B+C+D+E) = 2400*5

(A+B+C+D+E)/5 =600

bro FMS has 85% weightage to CAT score, score around 97%ile and you are through directly irrespective of what you score in PI and Extempore. So even if you don't like your job, leave it! and give CAT again this year. in the end it doesn't even matter!

When people react to their experiences with particular authorities, those authorities and the organizations or institutions that they represent often benefit if the people involved begin with high levels of commitment to the organization or institution represented by the authorities. First, in his studies of people's attitudes toward political and legal institutions, Tyler found that attitudes after an experience with the institution were strongly affected by prior attitudes. Single experiences influence postexperience loyalty but certainly do not overwhelm the relationship between pre-experience and postexperience loyalty. Thus, the best predictor of loyalty after an experience is usually loyalty before that experience. Second, people with prior loyalty to the organization or institution judge their dealings with the organization's or institution's authorities to be fairer than do those with less prior loyalty, either because they are more fairly treated or because they interpret equivalent treatment as fairer. Although high levels of prior organizational or institutional commitment are generally beneficial to the organization or institution, under certain conditions high levels of prior commitment may actually sow the seeds of reduced commitment. When previously committed individuals feel that they were treated unfavourably or unfairly during some experience with the organization or institution, they may show an especially sharp decline in commitment. Two studies were designed to test this hypothesis, which, if confirmed, would suggest that organizational or institutional commitment has risks, as well as benefits. At least three psychological models offer predictions of how individuals' reactions may vary as a function of (1) their prior level of commitment and (2) the favorability of the encounter with the organization or institution. Favorability of the encounter is determined by the outcome of the encounter and the fairness or appropriateness of the procedures used to allocate outcomes during the encounter. First, the instrumental prediction is that because people are mainly concerned with receiving desired outcomes from their encounters with organizations, changes in their level of commitment will depend primarily on the favorability of the encounter. Second, the assimilation prediction is that individuals' prior attitudes predispose them to react in a way that is consistent with their prior attitudes. The third prediction, derived from the group-value model of justice, pertains to how people with high prior commitment will react when they feel that they have been treated unfavorably or unfairly during some encounter with the organization or institution. Fair treatment by the other party symbolizes to people that they are being dealt with in a dignified and respectful way, thereby bolstering their sense of self-identity and self-worth. However, people will become quite distressed and react quite negatively if they feel that they have been treated unfairly by the other party to the relationship. The group-value model suggests that people value the information they receive that helps them to define themselves and to view themselves favorably. According to the instrumental viewpoint, people are primarily concerned with the more material or tangible resources received from the relationship. Empirical support for the group-value model has implications for a variety of important issues, including the determinants of commitment, satisfaction, organizational citizenship, and rule following. Determinants of procedural fairness include structural or interpersonal factors. For example, structural determinants refer to such things as whether decisions were made by neutral, fact-finding authorities who used legitimate decision-making criteria. The primary purpose of the study was to examine the interactive effect of individuals (1) commitment to an organization or institution prior to some encounter and (2) perceptions of how fairly they were treated during the encounter, on the change in their level of commitment. A basic assumption of the group-value model is that people generally value their relationships with people, groups, organizations, and institutions and therefore value fair treatment from the other party to the relationship. Specifically, highly committed members should have especially negative reactions to feeling that they were treated unfairly, more so than (1) lesscommitted group members or (2) highly committed members who felt that they were fairly treated. The prediction that people will react especially negatively when they previously felt highly committed but felt that they were treated unfairly also is consistent with the literature on psychological contracts. Rousseau suggested that, over time, the members of work organizations develop feelings of entitlement, i.e., perceived obligations that their employers have toward them. Those who are highly committed to the organization believe that they are fulfilling their contract obligations. However, if the organization acted unfairly, then highly committed individuals are likely to believe that the organization did not live up to its end of the bargain.

Latest Posts   

Hi New Joinees,

I am your well wisher and I would like to shed some light on great lakes Gurgaon-

First of all the college has the worst management of all the b-schools I have heard off. It does not know how to simply schedule the classes. It is just a single building with hell lots of infrastructure and technical issues.

The placement team does not know when any company is going to visit the campus till the last moment. The figure says it all. There many students which are still not placed. College forces its students to sit for companies for which they don't want to sit. The average CTC figure stated by college is inflated and most of the companies were startups whose name has never been heard off. It will be difficult for you to switch your profiles if you are looking for it.

The college promised that it would shift to new campus by October. That day never came and the college authorities just gave excuses. It always fails to deliver its promise.

Last but not the least pallawi rai is a college puppy and a moron.

If you want any genuine information, PM me @

Need to know the credibility!! the ones I have spoken to told me that only about 10 out of 65 are left and many have given many interviews and are not able to crack, hence its taking time. and i ahve visited campus.. what are the technical and infrastructure issues u mentioned?

Although I'm no DT/UDT member, here's my 1 rupee 20 paisa.

Name- Krishna PG Name- kittuboy

Class X- 87.xx

Class XII- 73.xx

UG (%age and college)- 56.xx, BE (Information Science, Jain University)

PG (%age and college)- Not done yet, starting at WIMWI this term

Work-Ex(if any)- 4 months at, 8 months at IMS as verbal faculty

Extra-Curricular Achievements (if any)- Mostly music and stage arts related

Dream Company (and why)- Goldman Sachs (no idea why. Say it's a gut feeling)

Pre- Exam: Took a break of one month before exam. Cut off all social contact except for the short weekly meeting with a friend or two

Years of Preparation- Haha. One month only

Preparation Strategy- Forget everything else apart from the exam. Take one mock every three days. Three days before the exam, stop all mocks. One day before the exam, cease all cramming. Go to the exam without any study material. This is not GMAT. Focus on raw score. Accuracy is secondary. Do not skip topics. I know you're not reading this. The shortest distance between two points is a line. Oh you're reading. Well, you should also visit scrabbler's blog ( and Gejo's articles on gpkafunda. (Although I believe in scrabbler, I would never say no to more useful gyaan.) In short: to prepare, you need to soak up information like a sponge and use said information to solve problems like a calculator. Practice nonstop. Drive yourself to sit for three hours without fidgeting constantly. I did it, and so can you.

Favourite subject or topic (if any)- Greatly loved grammar and vocab based questions but since they've been phased out, second is arithmetic. I'm hopelessly bad at it though.

Any suggestion or experience worth sharing - When you reach saturation point, stop studying for a few hours. Then start again. Maintain healthy diet, avoid junk food. Two short brisk walks a day are perfectly sufficient exercise.

Exams taken(CAT/XAT/GRE/GMAT/others)- CAT, XAT (too lazy and demotivated to write others)

Results- CAT overall 97.21 percentile. XAT disaster (just wrote for the hell of it)

Calls- LACIS, new (B never shortlisted, K shortlisted for first stage but I didn't fill the form) FMS

Post- Exam: Attended more parties than interviews. First interview I prepared (and botched up but mercifully converted) and henceforth never bothered with preparing, beyond the casual perusal of news articles around me. But I would advise to not be so casual. Luck does not favour everyone equally. 

Interview experiences (in brief) - All on the respective threads (attended A, C, L, S)

Any suggestion or experience worth sharing - Study like a 99.99 percentiler and party like there's no exam. But do that only after the exam.

Converts- A, C. Other results to follow.

Suggestion for future aspirants- Read my posts after the exams, rather than before. Also, write more exams. IIMs are not the only amazing colleges. Prepare for hell and pray that all goes well. Best of luck!
