16 April 2013 GD topic "Is Management Education Stifling Our Creative and Inventive Side". GD was average.CMAT Score is 182. Goan Domicile.In PI there were two professors one of whom asked me the following question:

prof1:tell me about yourself.
TOLD
prof1:We have three good reasons to reject you.How will u convince us that you are a suitable candidate
TOLD
prof1:Which according to you are good managerial skills
TOLD
prof1:Gave me a hypothetical situation and asked me how I will manage in such a situation
TOLD not convinced they were(My assumption)
prof1:You have 4 years of IT experience why don't you go for 1 year MBA program instead of 2 year program.Told me to think a lot before arriving at any decision before joining if I clear.
prof2 just checked my certificates and asked me about my poor aggregate in Graduation.

Hi can any body please tell me whether having 4 years of working experience is a advantage or disadvantage in such cases?

15th Apr' 13.

8.15am, GIM, Goa.
CMAT: 230 😟 [i know, 50% weightage is given to CMAT/XAT marks at GIM].
Profile: 1yr experience in healthcare sales.

First thing's first, GIM campus is "Awe- wait for it- Some", Awesome! 👍 , but reaching there is quite the opposite for 1st timers! Accommodation was allowed inside the campus, superb hostel rooms, good facilities. At night, i could see a stars-laden sky, unlike the polluted ones we see in Mumbai.

The session started at 8.30am and lasted till 11am (including the last PI candidate).
GD:
My batch had 14 students, but 6 of them were absent (might have rescheduled), so it was just us 8.
30 - 40 secs for intro and equal time for conclusion in ascending & descending order, respectively. May be, as we were just 8 people in that batch, the inbetween discussing time was only 7-8 mins, for my friend's batch of 12, it was 11 mins.
Started decently, eventually turned into a fish-market, i made 2 points in between & sat quiet listening to others as we also have to write a summary in the end.
Topic: "Will opening more number of IITs & IIMs dilute the quality of education currently available over there?"

PI:
2 profs, same who conducted the GD.
May be it was my bad-luck & kind of good luck, as one professor had a biology background (may be one from the HCM course), he asked me 5 questions of 11th STD biology, wrongly answered 1, rest 4 were correct.

Q1: Piyush, what is your father's name? (though it was mentioned in the form) 😲
Answered
Q2: (in my dad's name) Does H always come before L, or can L also come before H?

Answered

Q3: Tell me about yourself?

Answered

Q3: Your work ex is in which field?

Answered

Q4: Give us a brief description about the products sold in both of your companies?

Answered

Q5: So, why you happened to leave 1st company in 6 months? (2nd company also left in 6 months, but that was for CAT study, so they didn't interrogate)

Answered

Q6: Bio background prof's 1st question- answered wrongly, accepted the mistake. Q7, Q8, Q9, Q10 on STD 11th syllabus answered correctly.

Answered

Q11: Your experience is in healthcare plus you've a biotech background, so why didn't you opt for our HCM course?

Answered

Q12: So, Piyush, why should GIM accept you?

Answered

Q13: What are your hobbies? *(this question was asked after the 3rd question in the above list)

Answered

Q14: What is the status of your post-graduation marks in your college? Good or average?

Answered

Q15: Few minutes before, you mentioned about your products, how did you exactly sell them?

Answered

Q16: Do you have any questions about GIM?

Answered


That's all folks! 😁


I left for Calangute beach with a friend with whom I shared my hostel room at GIM. There, more than the Heineken, I was excited to see its highly reduced cost of just Rs. 60 a pint, in Mumbai you get no good beer for less than 100 bucks. Enjoyed one 🍻 with some fish fingers on the laid back chair, beach view, did some firangi bird-watching 😍, left for my Mumbai bound train at 6.55pm from Thivim.
