I was too disinterested in the process by teh time my chance to summarise came.. I knew we were supposed to summarise , but dont know what went through my mind .. i started saying something else. May be i knew i would be given full 1 minute to say my point , without getting interrupted . At that moment i did not cared if i would be loosing any marks or anything but i just wanted to say a couple of points and i just did that.
Rest of the people were doing pretty well.. No fish market.
I had come only to attend the interview.
Enter me ..
Three people sitting.
One old man (p1) ..college prof.
One middle aged lady (p2).. not sure .
One young guy (p3).. May be a recent college passout.
Good morning (looking at everyone)
P2- Give me a brief introduction of yours.
Me- I was born and brought up in faridabad . I did my schooling from Dav fbd. I took commerce with mathematics in plus 2 level. Chose Ramjas for my graduation in commerce. After that i did post grad diploma in banking operations. Got 2 job offers . Rejected both of them , started my own venture in equity portfolio handling , did it with a friend for some time, could not come up with a sustainable revenue model. So ended it somewhere in december. Currently worrking with a marketing research firm in their fmcg division.
P1- So tell me about your venture
Me- Told in detail , he asked a few questions .. mostly not related to venture .. but only for prooving his superiority. Was disspointed at this :|
P2- What were your favourite subjects at college so that we can grill
Me- There is not any favourite subject as such but i do generally have interests in things related to indian economy.
P2- Okie what can you tell me about cuurency fluctuations.

Me- It fluctuated whole year starting with high inflation in the initial stages, then to sub-zero figures.. (
P2 (interrupting)- You are commerce student , atleast you should give me a figure for the whole year.
Me- I dont know the exact figure but
P1 ( Interrupting) - What is inflation ? what is this 9% ?
Me- Its an increase over base figure which is a figure arrived after considering the previous year figures.
P2- You are saying about the base year , cuurent year.. You dont know much ..
Me- (Interrupting) Used an hypothetical example and described how it is calculated ..
P2- Any other exams you wrote and any other calls

P3- Why you didnot appeared for cat 2010 ?
Me- Was into my own venture so had no plans for cat . Its only after the venture ended and i applied for b-schools.
P3- So why would you choose gbo ? And how would it help in your future plans
Me- told them about the mandatory Subjects in Hr , Marketing and finance.. And how it would broaden my horizon. Then moved on to the faculty , their competence.. Told them about the entrepreneurship club's inactiveness at the college and my plans to make sure it becomes active. Then diplomatically moved towards the fees part. Was able to relate it to my goals pretty clearly. Told them that i had a ximb convert last year , could not take admission because of the financial issues,
P1- But you can always take a bank loan.. its easlily available these days ?
Me- Described if i take a loan of 10 lac rupees and in that case i will have to bear 15-20 k emi per month and how in long term it would effect my future goals as a fixed emi will keep me glued toa fixed earning format in jobs or even if it is a venture , it would keep away from taking risks and all that.
P1- Yeah i understand. It gets very difficult in those cases.
P1,P2,P3 discussing among themselves and i was told that i can leave.
A marathon interview . Lasted around 30-35 Minutes..
Not expecting as
A poor written rank (122) + An average gd + A below average summary + An awesome interview = Very low chance of making it to the final list
