Hi people

With GD/PI starting today, a lot of you would want to know how the process was conducted this year. Hence it would be nice if people who have finished their process post their experiences here. I know that there is a results tread that exists, but i would request all of you to post your experiences ONLY here for the benefit of others. This would make life easier for all newcomers in the forum and also to students next year. (Anyone new can easily locate this tread and also students next year may access this tread without spending too much time on the search function)

All the best to everyone.......

Kindly refrain from posting on the GD/PI results tread from now on. Post ONLY on this tread.
It would be nice if people post all their other queries also ONLY on the this tread till the final results come out. Let this be a common centre for all queries and discussions regarding GIM till the final results come out.

hi guys

quite a nice experience.

not only GIM ROCKS but the GIM FACULTY ALSO ROCKS

both the professors were very cool and chilled.

20 students were called; 12 turned up including coolcucumber.

GD topic- ATOM.

30 secs for opening statements by each.
10 mins gd.

It's nice of you amigo that you posted your gd/pi details in a very clear-cut way. one thing i would like to know is how long did your gd and pi lasted individually. and how long did the whole process took.
and for rest of the guys if you want to know more about ATOM pls refer to the following lnk http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atom

Once again i would like all the people to post in their GD/PI experiences only here so as to make things easier for all the GIM aspirants.

Regards!

hey
since everyone is asked to speak initially for 30secs and conclude also, i wanted to know whether there were points being repeated by ppl in the groups coz the last person might not have anything new to add. is it ok if points are repeated coz they may also be in your mind but someone else spoke it before you? will it go against the person if he does that (of course he cant go on doing it but this is regarding the opening statement and the conclusion...)

thanks

It's nice of you amigo that you posted your gd/pi details in a very clear-cut way. one thing i would like to know is how long did your gd and pi lasted individually. and how long did the whole process took.

thanks
amigo

Thanx for the information!
One more thing which i would like to ask you is you said there were twelve of you, so were you people divided into two groups or one single group because traditionally they divide..
hey did they ask you abt academics in detail....

how many ppl are called ..... whats the intake

Just came back from imi interview... it was all academics. Absolutely nothing else! :(
How much are they stressing acads in gim. Will general answers with a few examples do?

arre bhai log i was asleep

itna gussa ho gaye log yahan

see the intws were no fixed pattern. my first intw was for 20 min while my frd had it for 30 min or so

similarly amigo had 2nd intw for 15 odd min while mine was for just 6-7 odd min.

they din ask any tech ques to engg here coz they were not of engg bacjkgrd. baki jagah pe they mite ask u tech stuff

work ex people were generally asked bout there kinda work, cmpny they work in and there experiences thass it.

also how mba from gim wud help them

PEOPLE WHETHER U R FRESHER OR WORK EX GET 1 THG STRAIGHT. THEY SPECIFICALLY WANA KNOW Y U WANA DO MBA FROM GIM. my both intws were gud bcoz i was able to justify it to them how GIm was a perfect fit for me which it really is coa i really respect this insti and if they gimme call ILL SURELY GO TO GIM. ALSO BE TO THE POINT AND BE SPECIFIC AND REMAIN FOCUSSED.


THEYLL CHK HOW LOGICAL R U

AGAIN ILL SAY THEY DIN ASK MUCH TECH COZ THEY WERNT FRM TECH BACKGRD. BUT SOM PEOPLE FROM ECO BCKGRD WERE ASKED ACADS.


ALSO THE GD WAS IN A GRP OF 12, THEY DIN DIVIDE THE GRP COZ THEY THOUGHT 6 WUD BE TOO TOO LESS. BUT DUE TO ABSTRACT NATURE OF TOPIC, THERE WAS NO FISH MARKET. EVERYONE SPOKE WELL.

in my grp i had 2-3 with work ex, some engg, some arts bckgrs and some comm bckgrd. for some GIM was there only call while others had some other calls as well.


aur koi queries?
