Perfect time for this would've been post XAT results. But still posting if it could motivate anyone as the D-Day is still 3 weeks away! 😁 https://www.pagalguy.com/discussions/all-i-wanted-to-speak-about-cat-2019-edition-aiwtsac-2019-75948146535137/79552478428321
Hi, I am Soham Chaudhuri, I got 99.20 percentile in CAT 2019 in my very first attempt. I received calls from SPJIMR, IIM Shillong, NITIE Mumbai and SJMSOM IIT Bombay to name a few and converted IIM Shillong, NITIE and SJMSOM. I finally decided to join IIM Shillong due to the amazing diversity and types of roles it has to offer. Here's a glimpse at life at IIM Shillong during the coveted section wars https://www.instagram.com/tv/CE99mEvljHk/?igshid=57ccf75u5b8w https://www.facebook.com/498107490209088/posts/3508863582466782/ Do connect for any advice, and please like the videos we made Thank you Soham Chaudhuri
Dear admin kindly remove spam and promotional post from this group... Only keep stories of CAT seniors which can be an inspiration and motivation corner for upcoming aspirants. TIA:)
Hello Cat aspirants I am selling my unacademy plus subscription which is till January. Anybody interested in buying can dm me.
Giving a little background a chemical engineer with an average profile, GEM as you must be aware of the term.
It all started in my second year the placement season had begun for the final years and like ideal junior, I was always among that group in the hostel who used to wait for hostel seniors to get placed and hear their interview stories and of course for the party. Over that time I started realising this engineering might not be my cup of tea but straight forward two years I never really thought of preparing but only procrastinating that one day I’ll do it, time passed got placed didn’t filled the form, thinking why to waste 1500 when any way you haven’t prepared.
After that my job started there the reality hit me within the 3 months of induction that chemical engineering is something, I cannot pursue as a career its not something I see myself doing but already there was September and with exam in November I thought I will prepare for next year but will give the exam for practice sake. Fast forward two months morning slot CAT 2017 the easiest quant of all time I breezed through the paper, was eagerly waiting for the results then January came and a slap on my face a 78 percentile.
Recovered from the shock pretty quickly since I knew this was supposed to be my year took an online coaching and a test series, prepared with the job starting from April, all was going well until September came there was a project that was assigned to me and my daily 12 hr shift started from 1 sept 18 to 1 March 19. In between there was CAT, I continued my preparation scores started improving in last mocks also scored my highest scores but D-day went pretty bad. VA came easy did silly mistakes DILR didn’t understand due to lack of practice and quant the hardest in last 5–6 years scored well but couldn’t compensate for other 2 sections, overall CAT 18 89 percentile.
Thought of leaving the job in April but parental pressure was high, so again started in May this time I knew what I was doing purchased a couple of test series started giving mocks from June itself two mocks a week with rigorous review after that, gave almost 50 mocks before Cat. This time QA became stronger but the real improvement came in DILR was killing that section each and every time but with VARC scores still fluctuating till October, changed the strategy I knew it was late but needed to be done.
Also This time I thought of playing with my luck changed the centre this time and took different city. After a week answer sheet came I was on my job but with the anxiety getting better of me, ran home after lunch took the pad opened the laptop and then the score sheet starting with VARC, I still remember distinctly my first 3 answers were correct then after that I lost 3, not only that they gave me -3 , it felt like this year is also going into ruins but some how after 5–10 minutes I resumed telling myself this had to be done. After that it felt like some one had given my paper a Midas touch and I scored better than any of my mock in the last 2 years.
Fast forward January result came scored 98.3, knew with my background BLACKI were not possible but Rest all major calls were there. Gave the GDPI prep whatever experience I had, but all things came crashing down in March due to Covid fortunately I was done with my interviews but the results were delayed, each and every day came with just more hint of being patient, then came May and results started pouring most of the colleges were at convertible waitlists and as it was supposed to be I converted four of my major calls as of today.
And with that my CAT journey came to an end.
All I learnt in these 2–3 years of preparation was consistency with proper motivation can do wonders.
