Can we give generic email ids for recommendation or an official one is required?

What if official id is not available?

Dear Ash,

Thanks for your kind words.

You must be feeling relaxed once term exams are over.

Could you please provide some idea on the qaulities IIIMC PGPEX is looking in a perspective student. Anything IIMC specific- like strong quant, leadership, stress handling etc.?

This will help in getting ready for the interview.

One more specific query. I opted for the telephonic interview. does it affect my chance compared to the person who will be physically appearing for a personal interview.

All the best for the 4th term result.

The very best wishes to all of you who have hurdled the first barrier. I am from the second batch of PGPEX, and after the final term exam on the 4th, would have sufficient breather. Shoot your queries, should you have any . Cheers
