Hi guys, I need some advice.
I am presently doing my 4th year civil engineering in rv college bangalore. My aggregate is about 60% but I lost a year due to some problems. I flunked in 5 subjects. Since the vtu doesnt change the total marks for flunked subjects it comes out as 40% instead of 50% in transcript. I know people who get through cat are all hifi. But I do want some advice as to what are my possibilities in getting through cat. I have been scoring 95+ in all mock cats I have taken.
10th - 88%
12th - 71%
hobbies- reading, stamp collecting , playing chess.
Though i m using pagalguy for quite some time now but never knew that such a thread existed for posting profiles as well.Anyways,my academic background r average only
10(CBSE) - 85
12(CBSE) - 81
B.Tech(Eln & Comm) - 69
Work Ex - 15 Months(Software Company)
Best of luck guys

10th: 70% (cbse)
12th: 61.6% (cbse)
B.Tech(Electronics): 64.5% (UPTU)
no work ex. as of now.
i just appeared for MAT last yr n scored 90%ile.
now looking forward to give CAT n get into the best institutes of the country.
i read profile of a final call getter which inspired me; it said :

XII - 64.4% (CBSE)
Engg - 7.80/10 (till 7th sem)
CAT Score : 99.37 %ile, QA - 97.32, DI - 99.46, VA - 93.72

Converts - L, K, NITIE, IIT-B,D, NM, NIRMA
Joining - L
L - GD - Excellent, PI - Average
K - GD - Good, PI - Very Good.
My advice to future MBA aspirants. Try to do well in more than one exams. They open up more avenues for you. Each exam has a specific strategy involved with it. Try to figure that out. Once you do that, its more abt how u utilize it. Basic skills are always there though. No substitute for that . And i think my profile would prove that bad acads record in school can still not stop you from getting into IIMs. All u need to do is perform well in written, get a call, and perform well in GD/PI. If the question of bad record comes before you. Be honest.
it did come in L pi. And i said. I wasnt focussed at that time sir.
