all keralites make this thread an active one..................
i am a 3rd year btech student from kochi..........

guys nice initiative..keeping up the spirits is important as ther s still a long way to cat 2012, and always be prepared for an 'adaptive' test from next time around, sometimes it might be.
as of now, it would be great if u give one of those free mocks from online portals such as testfunda/cl and analyse where you're standing, weakpoints...
and cat is becoming conceptual and the toughness factor is maintained no longer uniformally, VA is the toughest so if any prep you're planning start with VA earnestly , bcos you need time to build up va skills..and there's enough time now.
search for pagalguy test prep articles of tanveer ahamed and handa ...especially tanveer sir gives you invaluable tips on how to get started on VA and handa sir has brilliant primers/concepts for each qa topic.

from my experience since cat is now opening the doors to non engineers and ladies big time with diversity in mind, qa is basic application and va is the decider.
p.s.personal suggestion

will keep u updated on 2011 CAT Season.....

CAT 2011: attemts were low 21 in each section..... I feel that even with 100% accuracy I do not stand much chance......

today there was "Coffee with SIBM" and tomorrow we have IIFT :)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now I think low attempts helped me out...... I think that as I hoped I got everything correct...... 42 attempts with 100% accuracy lead me to..... OA: 99.04, QA: 97.16, VA: 98.60.

With comparitively weak accads of 84.20, 80.60, 73.92 in X, XII, UG..... I did not get calls from any old IIMs till now...... Only IIM I is left to come up with their shortlist.

Got calls of 5 out of 6 new IIMs..... Did not get Rhotak....

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As expected, did not get through IIM K and IIM I shortlists :D

XAT was a big disaster :-P

Good news is that I got MDI call just now :)

-------------------------------------------------------------

Got call for XIM(B) PGDM..... some problem with XIM(B) PGDM-HRM.... have send a mail to the admission office

Also got SP Jain IT call :)

---------------------------------------------------------------

No luck with XIM(B) - HRM......

Just in..... got a call from IIT(B) - SJMSOM :D

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Adding some other calls that I missed to mention.....
IIT D, IISc, FMS.....

Gotta take CAT12 really seriously..I hope this thread will be useful for every CAT12 aspirants.. All the Best 😃

We had Pratap and Hari (1st year students of SIBM, Pune) today who presented some facts and figures about the college. They also answered the queries effectively. Got a CD with 3 mock snap papers. At the end had coffee, some chit chat and then every one thanked them and left for home :)


Some imprtant points discussed were:

Placement figures(in CTC) :

Min. package = 8 lacs
Avrg. package = 10.26 lacs
Max package(domestic) = 18.xx lacs
Max. package (international) = 26.xx lacs

Fees for 2012-2014 batch: 10.5 lacz (including hostel and mess)

No dual specialization is offered.

From this year on, any number of students can select a particular specialization..... till now there used to be some limits on each case.....

I am Ajey Karthik from Kasaragod. Currently working in Cognizant, Chennai. I am also looking forward to CAT 2012. All the best for the CAT aspirants from kerala....:)

not really a keralite, but i have a multi-culutral history...i was born in rajasthan, brought up in west bengal, nd m working at kochi, kerala. My first tryst wid cat was in 2010, got 95 %ile, nd a few decent converts dat i rejected. This tym i ws pretty serious, nd hopefully wud not sit fr cat again..in ny case, wud luv to be of ny help dat i cn...the keralites have been pretty nice to me... :P
Subscribed to this thread... 😃

Great to see this initiative from Kochi for the 2nd time...
I used to be an aspirant till 1 year back.. And those days there we really few people from Kochi on PG... Glad to see that its growing and growing big time..

The CAT 2011 Kochi study group will surely help you guys out in a big way...

And my only advice here would be to explore PG.. You will come across all kinds of threads and materials required for CAT prep.. So use this forum wisely..
