“Whatever happens, happens for a reason”
Converting XLRI this year actually made me understand this. Last year was a big disappointment, not getting any IIMs converted and waitlisted at XLRI which didn’t clear out eventually made me think seriously about joining SCMHRD and NITIE. But I decided to risk it, risk another year, so I started working and prepared for the MBA entrance at the same time.
FINALLY converted XLRI..
And this one year has made me a more mature person , now I better understand the value of an institute as big as XLRI.
Now, how did I manage to crack XL ?
Nothing elaborate and fancy!! Nothing remotely close to rocket science. Not even science I guess.
Very simply put :
“hard work, determination, will to go the extra yard and great guidance “
The most important part was practice, some time to be dedicated to the studies day in and day out, without fail.
Motivational talks with seniors also helped a lot.
And finally, the thing which should never be ignored: “mock tests“. They help oneself to assess one’s strong and weak areas and to work accordingly.
Also time management is of utmost importance which can be mastered by religiously giving mocks. One can be a genius, know everything, but if they get stuck up with the wrong questions their genius won’t take them anywhere.
One last thing, always remember that one’s weak areas can’t become one’s strong areas, work on them but don’t think that one would turn the tables completely on them. No matter what, strong areas should be practiced regularly to keep them strong as they are the real saviors.
So, to sum it up, always work hard to achieve what you want no matter what. And as John Cena says:”Never give up“. And finally always enjoy what you do.
Have fun. Cheers!!!
