Hello puys...
the process started today at 8:00 am...
you first had to register for the day...there were separate queue for those with regular gd/pi slot today and those who had requested a change in gd/pi slots...also, they issued new call letters in case yu had not received the original...
there were arnd 240 students who had been asked to report today and they were divided in 24 gd groups of 10 each...
after registration, ppl were made to sit in the auditorium and went through a couple of presentations for 10-15 mins..then the gd pi process started...

yu can check yr group and panel no..on yr call letter there will be a number like 1/A/5...
1 is yr gd group for the day...A is yr gd panel(there are two panels - A and B) and 5 is yr interview panel(total 5 panels were there)...

they are entertaining requests if yu have to leave early or smthng...IMPACT team was present everywhere and helped out the students in every possible way...there is arrangement for refreshments as well...

from the audi, students were taken into another room in order of their groups...there was document verification...

yu need to keep with yu one set of followin docs in the following order:
cat scorecard
X marksheet
XII marksheet
graduation marksheets
work-ex certificate
character certificate
caste certificate
physical disability certificate

they take copies of only those certificates which they do not have...better to keep a backup of each(my 12th marksheet was missing from their file)...

after verification, the students are divided into gd groups...there were 10 ppl in my group out of which 4 were absent...so they took 4 students from group 2 and added to our group on a dynamic basis...

then we proceeded for the GD...there were 7 panelists for the GD!!!

my topic was: "Customer is a King" is still a myth in India, not reality...

discussion was ok...no fish markets...

then we had to wait in another room for the interview...i was in panel 5...there were 6 ppl taking the interview!!!

interview, though, was chilled out...no stress...they asked questions and waited for yu to answer..yu can take yr own time..
to me they asked about my work-ex...why mba...why pgdim...a couple of questions on computer science(my background)...final year project(i think they asked this to a few others as well)....

all the best to other puys for their interviews...

PS- the GDs were expected to continue till lunch...but team IMPACT said that interviews will probably go on late...they expected it to b over by 6-6:30...but gave a worst case time of 9...

Could u plz elaborate on questions they asked on ur acads(CSE)? I am also from same branch.
thanks in advance

Hey puys... had my NITIE GD/PI today..:)

Thanks to akky, who has already explained the process in detail...

I was late in reaching (reached by around 8:20 am) and was greeted by a very angry looking lady (came to know later that she was the registrar), but anyway was shuffled into the auditorium by some very friendly seniors.

The presentation was already over by then and some of the people were asking questions.

After that people as per their groups were sent for document verification followed by the GD.

My turn came at almost 9.30 am (was in 11th group)... n yeah seniors also made the arrangement of getting the certificates xeroxed so in case u miss out on anything, it can be done there.

PROFILE:

Acads:
X - 91%
XII - 80%
Undergrad Major - 7.78/83.8%

Work-Ex:
20 months - One of the big-4 in SAP practice

CAT Score - 99.61 (overall)

GD group consisted of 10 people, and 6 panelists. The topic was "Success vs Values". 3 minutes to think, 15 minutes to discuss and 2 minutes to summarize. The GD didn't turn out to be very great and it did turn into fish market at least a couple of times, but not a very enriching discussion and it did get a bit repetitive..could come in 2 times properly and in 3 4 times in bits n pieces which i would rather not count...:|
So a discouraging start of the process for me..:shocked:

And then came the long wait... lots of people who had a flight or train to catch late in the day got their PIs rescheduled and so the poor Mumbaikars like me suffered.
Anyway was called for PI at 5.30pm

Enter room: 6 chairs out of which only 4 were occupied
3 males: P1, P2, P3 and one lady L1 (P3 was busy with some papers all through my PI and L1 also remained silent)
Myself: M

P1: So tell us something about yourself
M: Told.... (chalo shuruat to theek hai )

P1: So you'r working on SAP. What are the different modules of SAP?
M: Told.... Also said that I'm working in sales and distribution and customer service modules.

P1: What exactly do you do in Sales and distribution module?
M: Explained about order to cash cycle, order entry, stock allocation, dispatch, invoicing etc

P1: How do you do sales forecasting
M: Gave some gyan....
(copule of minutes discussion on this)

P1: What do you mean by ***** effect? (dont remember exactly what was that)
M: Sorry

P2: Can you explain the financial implications of the sales cycle?
M: Explained about the accounting impacts at the dispatch and invoicing stages..(both nodding)

P2: What is back order processing?
M: Explained...

P2: What would be the opposite of back order processing?
M: Explained about customer independent requirements and subsequent order processing.... (P2 nodded in acceptance)

P1: One last question.... tell us something about extracurriculars..
M: was too engrossed with giving SAP gyan and had to change gears suddenly... finally managed to blurt out few things but felt that could have answered in a much better manner.

Thank yous exchanged

Overall a good PI (lasted a little under 15 minutes), they asked me only about my workex which i think I managed well. Thankfully they didnt move towards acads.. maybe lack of time i guess.. Came to know that 18 more people were to be interviewed by that panel and it was already 5.45pm.

All the best to all the puys for their GD/PIs

And then came the long wait... lots of people who had a flight or train to catch late in the day got their PIs rescheduled and so the poor Mumbaikars like me suffered.
Anyway was called for PI at 5.30pm


I think it will be interesting to know that seniors were showing a movie (Andaz Apna Apna today) in the audi to pass the time for the waiting candidates...First of its kind for me...
PROFILE:

Acads:
X 89
XII 86
Undergrad Major - 65% (BE telecom)

Work-Ex: 20 months TCS

CAT Score: 99.81%ile
GD:
Topic:Turmoil in pakistan: a threat to india.
Number of Ppl present: 10
Time: 2min to think, 15 min to discuss, 2 min to summarize
Brief Snapshot of Discussion:
average GD- chipped in 4-5 times- emphasized first to the group that besides terrorism there are also other aspects to India pak relns that could be affected by turmoil, eg: SAARC, international trade- told about adverse effect on social and cultural aspects, about people having roots in Pak - Told that the current turmoil has taken away the chance from us to prove that Pakistan was involved in terrorism since it has diverted the attention from Mumbai attacks investigation - Also, Turmoil gives a chance for international powers to interfere within Indo Pak matters - Told that through better co operation, we could build SAARC based body on the lines of EU which would be more fruitful - told that the current turmoil projects a bad image of Pakistan in the international community which could work in favour of India with regards to the mumbai attacks investigation.

GD was good for all.

PI (th bad part)

It started off well with regular questions like
1) Brief us about yourself
2) why do you want to leave your job
3) Why MBA
4) What are your job responsibilities? (software tester)
5) How would you test a software consisting of 7 modules each with 200 lines of code?


But then they turned to academics
I could answer about Maslows theory of need hierarchy, and Supply demand relations
but then...
1) what is the range for microwave frequencies?
2) just an estimate :shocked: (gave a completely wrong one)
3) Which is better AM or FM and why? :wow:
4) Why is stereo possible in FM and not in AM:w00t:

Couldnt answer the above four questions in a row


Then thank god they turned to extra curriculars: (acting and writing)
1) so who is your favourite standup comedian? (discussed a bit on different comedians)
2) Have you worked in movies :wow:...dramas?
3) What do you write about? (mentioned blogging, Showed my poetry)
4) What is your poetry based on?
5) So will you continue these activities? ( Ofcourse!!...smiles...dont know why! )

I found the panel a bit stressful. They were not letting me complete my answers. All of the 5 profs asked questions.

I, shameless plugged myself throughout the PI.

A lot of thanks to Team Impact for all the assistance. Pretty smooth process.
NITIE ne free movie bhi dikhaya
Thanks to Arpan, my PI coordinator for an engaging chat before the PI.

Started at 6:50 AM from my house, reaching NITIE 7:50 AM

We were sent to the auditorium after initial attendance(I 'm not repeating the usual stuff again)...Andaz Apna Apna was screened later on

Time for the GD at 10:45 AM...was in group 8(32) according to todays order.

Topic: Obama: Will he prove to be a blessing for India (I think these are surely not the exact words 😞 )

Moi didn't start as usual
Was the fourth entrant..and ensured that I grabbed the limelight..
Mentioned that since the broad outline although that has been mentioned...we need to specify these issues . These being positive and negative.

These are 1)Protectionism 2)H1B visa cap 3)Outsourcing 4)Ratification of CTBT and NPT 5)WTO fiasco 6)Non tariff barriers 7)Pro-pakistan and China policy
Positives are:1)Has big Indian -american lobby support 2)Is from a pluralist background 3)Has the power to deliver(I took about 50 seconds in this)

The course being set all the point were discussed in details. Countered two points in between with hard facts.
Supported 4 points made by others by giving some examples. Gave 2 more of my original points

In the summary...we could conclude as a group that the future can tilt both ways..he might or might not prove to be a blessing....

PI
Started with 3 panel members..gradually increased to 6 during the course of 14-15 minutes of my interview.
The sixth member being the research dean Dr. Amitabh De himself
He came into the room in the last 4 minutes and started rapid fire questions(10 total)

I'll henceforth address the panel members as P1,P2,P3(only 3 of them asked questions) and the dean as AD

M:moi=>sabse bada duffer

This took place at 2:25 PM
Panelists were still to return from lunch
and I was felling sleepy after a full meal

M:greeting the 3 profs present at first
P1: Please take the seat

P1: Tell us something about yourself

P1: asked about autonomy
M: told about deemed status from nex acad year..and i will be from the last batch having MU thappa

M: A bit true sir:laugh: ...actually I would have loved if it were a deemed this year from my batch itself
P1: Why is that?
M: There are some concrte reasons sir...
P2..please elaborate
M: grabbed this oppotunity to explain the meagre placements (absence of student placement cell)
absence of electives..flexibility..etc etc
P2..good
Now comes the acads grilling
By now two more lady panelists have entered...AD is still not in the scene

M:...Sir OTCs!!!
Gave the example of Eno...explained my answer by using this brand...he seemed convinced now

I maintained my stand on product differentiation...mentioning Crocin vs paracetamol

P1: asked a lot on paracetamol..answered all

P1: so in a batch process ...what determines the batch limit...
Told about the differnce between batch and continuous drug prod lines and mentioned the factors limiing cap size

P3(L)...so basically these are the factors to limit batch size
This time i added the specific biotech drugs like steroids....homogenisation becomes difficult

P3...asks about project ..what is it and it has been completed or not
M:...Phew..Was waiting for this
Enter AD
AD..So pharma eh?
Qs

What is USP IP BP
What is GMP
which countries GMP is followed in india(This was the sole question i didn't have a proper answer to 😞 )

What are clinical trials

I forgot the remaining two

He gave about 5-10 seconds to anwer each..and started firing the next..

After the rapid fire...AD looks at the other panel members..smiles around..now this was really great:clap:
AD asks them done then..all agree..."u can leave now"

I offer my file....all in unison..its not required..

I wish good day to all and leave
