Amid all the converts and succeses that we usually see on PG, there are some puys( I being one of them) who are repeatedly rejected at the final stage i.e. GD and Personal Interview. We get decent scores in written exams, give our best effor...

i guess bad academics can be overpowered by the good PI's.

I profoundly believe that all the weaknesses can be overcome by a very good performance in GD and PI. I hv seen a myriad of students with WORSER ACADS than U getting into IIMs, esp IIM-C.

U cannot revisit ur past and change the already recorded events, can U??
Its imperative that U put ur best effort in ur Interview prep. Its also vital to accept one's failures and take responsibility for the same. Its worthwhile to remember that everyone who gets into an IIM doesn't have an extraordinary profile.

Hence, please do an introspective analysis of your interviews and try to zero-in on the areas where you can improve. I'm sure that if one remains honest about oneself, victories will start pouring in despite one's inherent weaknesses. Hope this helps you. PM me if you require any guidance. ATB for a bright future.


I personally know a general category candidate with similar acads and 99.54 overall in CAT who did not even get a call from IIM I

Just wanted to point out that acads do play spoilsport for a majority of participants, getting 99.54 did not help him get a call due to his acads

After valuable advices, I think joining is better option as one may end up being in avg college, not what one deserves!

Hmm...
After strait rejects by so many colleges irrespective of the GDPI performance what I feel is I might be ejected coz of lower profile

see here it is...

10th: 74
12th: 71
B.Pharmacy: 56
Extra curric: not on paper
Love chess, trading in stock market, tracked stock market for 5 years..

but not all interviews allowed me to showcase my extra currics
but I got rejected in all those where the interviewer got so engaged in my hobbies that he starteed discussing his favourit stocks wid me and asked my view on it.. Now tell me is it the rejection coz of PI..

simply no.. as they rejected me coz of my lower profile, lower marks throughout my career...:oops::oops::oops:

very true...thanks!
By the way, Is there any gap between training and job? Dats when the bulk of the exams (FMS, XAT, CAT) lie.. (considering training ends in August + 3 months i.e. october...)

And can the training/joining be postponed by 6 months by any practical means? Thats ideal for me... I guess

If i were in your position i would have done the following

->Join tcs whenever the joining comes..but take it easy in training ans study 2- hrs a day for cat..that should be enough since u have already done it once.
->In case you do no perform well ( in XAT,FMS,JMET et al you would know looking at scores ) start preparing for cat 12 from feb 2012 (that should give u enough time for cat 12 ) . That way you can be safe both ways

->If u delay ur joining by 6 months then it would create lots of problems in getting leaves for gd/pi bcos till my time (2 years back) thw rule was if we took more than 2 leaves in ILP we are automaticaly dropped and put in next batch no matter how genuine the reason may be ..

so best scenario is join ASAP (and take a sunday/saturday date for cat in case it is squezzed in ur training)

There is no gap between training and job but it may depend on u getting a project or being on bench

i would not recommed postponing training bcos then it would clash with ur GD/PI which mostly happen on weekdays and since u are allowed only 2 days off in training , that would be very difficult to adjust ..

Yes You can postpone the training and probably the only reason you can give is medical but then also postponing by 6 months is very difficult indeed.

how to postpone DOJ? Can Medical certificates do?

that depends on the company policies. Ask any senior of yours who is in TCS. He may guide you better.
