Dear Friend,

I am in my fifth year of BBA. yet to attempt any paper. Reason is, I am in mktg dept of a MNC. When the exams come it will be year/ quarter/ half-year end for us. So skipped all the exams for that career.

But this time a lit'l bit more planned. Attempting all the three year in a strech with a confidence that I am a board rankholder in Engineering Diploma examinations '98and will clear all these..and attempting CAT this time.

bye

Hey Buddy I am a Bcom grad

But as u can C that I got thru IIM Cal will put all ur doubts to rest.

Had not dropped a year but had couple of backlogs in my 1st and 2nd sem ,thats about it, Some B-schools ask for an undertaking that but sep -oct we need to submit our certificates if one can manage them it's ok.

thanks yaar, 😁

Looks like there is some hope,
if u people could just ad ur background( as in iit's-rec's or any other college) n cat percentile( if possible break up )
it will help.

What i know that SP does not consider anyone with some blemish in acads even for interviews :oops: .Luks like got to add ahmd to that list after what rajeev says.

GSK.. i flunked my first year... 😐
Agreed my MNC work ex will help.

BUT the prerequisite remains to be a great cat score.
What i want to confirm is that if ...i "earn" a great percentile...
what r my chances for a call.
this is very important as lot of career choices depend on it.if cat aint made for guys with my background......
damit ..i will have to do something better(if there exist something of that kind)

but dimwitz u really r making me feel its possible i too crawled back.

i plan to repeat ur feet.thanks yaar.
