Do you love taking up the challenge where you are considered as a person who cannot achieve the pinnacle easily but then you come out with sheer passion and dedication and win the challenge. If yes, then go on and read below as this is the place that belongs to you.
Why this place belongs to you ?
Because you believe that your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start !! Determination, efforts and self conviction determines the former!
The belief in former and ' Never Give up ' attitude makes us believe that despite all the odds, I can make it into one of the most coveted institutes just like my counterparts who have been doing great since day 1 in every arena of life.
This thread is for all such underdogs who have been trying hard, very clear about their goal, haven't given up ever irrespective of the low scores they got in mocks. All because of the dream , all because of the passion they have for not only proving to themselves but to show everyone that 'Never Underestimate Underdogs'.
What is the team all about????
The concept of an underdog team evolved some years back, where in a team of 11 hard working dreamers are selected, they help each other and they work together in fullfilling their dreams. These guys know they are not great guns, they are not studs, but they are extraordinary in one thing than the rest of the pack. These guys have that single word which is an energy drink for the Journey called CAT i.e. Determination.
These guys might have failed in 8 out of 10 mocks but they would have surprised by outstanding performance in 2 mocks and all because of sheer passion and confidence.
Total 16 members will be selected democratically (Captain + 10 playing members + 2 Reserves + 1 Coach). But everyone else is welcome to take part in the journey of UDT till CAT and post CAT also.
How do I apply???
Just make your nomination here on this thread with a link to your Mock CAT scores..Based on the selection criteria, your scores, your attitude, your activeness on the forum etc, you will be taken in to the team, THE PaGaLGuY Underdogs Team..
Please go through the below links for references:
1.Only one post per person (edit the same for additional information)
2.It should be self nomination & no soap box stuff allowed in any form i.e dont market for your friends by posting here or sending PMs/calling the selectors
3.Kindly post your mock scores (for the exams held) in the same nomination post & keep editing the same as when you get your results for the next coming up mocks
Puys who dont follow the rules would automatically loose a chance to be selected.
1. Should have scored less than 100 rank or >= 99.4 %ile atleast once in AIMCAT/SIMCAT/MOCK CAT or in any other institute's exam.
2. Should be a dreamer, a firm believer, should have the fire in the belly
Know your selectors:
1. raghav507: One of the most knowledgeable persons out here in the community with the selfless desire of helping puys and guiding them to take the best decision for them.
2. kinji.at.pg : Popular name among Bangalore puys, Community leader who is very focussed when it comes to preparation for exams and with knowledge that is needed to make it big not only in written exams but in GDPI as well.
3. Yours' Truly
Auditor : Grondmaster ( winner of best OMPA award, an avid quizzer, one of the most helpful people around )
This time selection process is slightly changed. It would be in 2 phases.
Selectors shortlist 20 nominations ( approx ) from among the nominations made.
Selectors talk to these 20 puys to have a discussion about their performance in mocks, activity on PG and views on being part of Team.
After this talk, announcement of final team for season 2012 shall happen.
Deadline: 04.08.2012, 5 PM
Phase 1 results to be declared: 05.08.2012 (Tentatively)
Announcement of UnderDogs Team 2012: 12.08.2012 ( Tentatively )
Being a part of this team is always a pleasure...so dont loose out by not nominating on time.
All the best Junta...Hope to see an Underdog team which will make all the UDTians and Puys junta proud.
PS: Slight change in selection process has been made to ensure that no case of fake posting happens as well as selected team remains active on forum.
