I have 9.6 in my 10th boards and 93% in my 12 boards.But my college average gpa is around 8.Does my low gpa put me at a great disadvantage?

Dude, I was kidding. Your acads are awesome. All you need is a good percentile and a very good GD/PI. Prepare for interview and forget about your acads. ATB !

Extempore: Energy Sector in India

couldnt time myself and finish it properly.


who is C Rangarajan? (answered Chairman of the Prime Minister's economic advisory council)

Anything else? Was he related to reserve bank of india? ( Wasnt sure)

Why s geothermal energy not developed in india?

Tidal energy?

Solar Energy?

contribution of renewable segment to entire energy matrix?

Why dont you join the evening program? Was cut in between and was asked to leave.


Surprises(if any) add Overall Experience-

Verdict- No surprises here . A straight reject.

Sorry buddies for the delay in posting my experience..

PROFILE:

CAT Percentile
OA : 99.48
QA & DI : 96.63
VA & LR : 99.62

Acads:
X : 95.2%
XII : 91.6%
Undergrad Major - BE (Computer Science and Engg) - MIT, Manipal - 9.11/10.0

Work-Ex: 20 months
Sector - 9 months in IT and then 11 months in a start up in the Education Sector

GD:
Topic: Should Sting Operations be carried out?
Number of Ppl present : 15
Time: 15 minutes
Brief Snapshot of Discussion: Not a very great one.. People struggling to make their points as few were hogging all the air time.. I could somehow make 2 - 3 points and could summarize well..

PI:
Panel Members Intro : 3 Professors.. (Names not known to me)
Description of the process:
Extempore Topic: Numbers 😃
I could speak pretty well on the topic bringing in various perspectives.. They seemed happy..

What followed was an extremely short PI with 1 question on my work ex and 1 question on my future plans. I could defend these well. Was really happy with my interview..

Surprises(if any) add Overall Experience- Good for me. No complaints at all :)

Verdict - WL number 14 in the General Category. I guess the average GD and
