Three business partners Aka, Bhika and Chika traveled from city A to cities P, Q and R respectively to attend business meetings. They took 5 hours, 3 hours and 6 hours respectively for their travels. After their meetings, they decided to meet in city Z. They took 9 hours, 6 hours and 1 hour respectively to reach city Z from their respective cities. If AP + AQ + AR = 200 km and PZ + QZ + RZ = 310 km, and the usual speeds of all the partners are integers, then find the speed (in km/hr) of Bhika.

I'm not one to agonise and squabble over a result, but I checked my score with multiple keys and had a score in the range of 39-41, with balanced sectionals as well. With that kind of score, should have been shortlisted, surely? This is very confusing and disappointing.

-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?

I appeared last time for CAT in 2012. Ended up with 97.xx percentile. I had worked in post office before that and had completed my graduation along with that job. I know 97.xx means nothing but being a blue collared worker in a post office. I have struggled hard to dare to think anything beyond SSC CGL or IBPS PO. I got calls from two IITs nd new IIMs. I couldn't convert IIMs but converted to IIT R then.. 

Due to certain reasons, I decided to drop IIT R and joined Allahabad Bank as probationary officer in august 2013. I thought this job might add up to my profile in terms of experience in a financial firm. But, on contrary, I got posted in a rural and Backward area of Bahraich (Uttar Pradesh). I spent around an year working in that fucked up place.

Public Sector Bank means Rural Posting minus any Power or Authority plus Additional Responsibilities and you get paid in peanuts for giving up your lifestyle and your personal life.

Life of a PO is such that my girl left me as my salary was not upto her mark. After an year filled mostly with humiliation sometimes by incompetent superiors and peer group who find this bank job as a happy ending and by people who judge you more by your present job (salary) than by anything else. I decided to appear for CAT once more. Went on Leave without Pay after fighting with my superiors and risking my APAR, purchased CL Mocks. Started again to give a fresh shot though couldn't pull well in those mocks. I know every day most of you guys feel anxious about the delay in results. I know its important to everyone of us.

Even my life too is at a cross road where a success will mean a lot. I would be cherishing a much awaited dreams for which I have lived and have been waiting for years.

A failure will result in going back to the village, joining the bank, facing the departmental enquiry for going on leave without pay, a fucked up APAR means a big blow on my banking career. I had already lost the girl, now it will be career too. Probably my last chance and attempt. but still, I am not concerned about the result, I am not at all excited, I wish they never come.(Not to offend any of you).

Anyways best of Luck to all you guys!!

One query regarding IIFT

I've been shortlisted by IIFT for 2nd round. But i had submitted state level NC-OBC certificate.However now i do have the required Central level certificate which had been asked for.  Will there be any problem during the next round? 

Is someone else also facing the same kind of problem?

It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default.

Hey guys, I attempted 30 questions in QA (100% Accuracy ) and 29 in VA (95-100% Accuracy). What is the percentile I can expect? As compared to others, I have attempted lesser questions but I'm confident about my accuracy. But, I'm still not very confident on getting 99+.
