Why and when did you start to look at an MBA as a career option ?
How many previous attempts you had at CAT ?
I attempted CAT in 2011 without any preparation. Naturally I did not perform very well.
Which calls did you receive and converted ? (It might be the case that you got the call but you couldn’t convert it)
Which classes did you join ? Which advice one should follow while joining classes ? Does everybody should join classes or test series is enough ?
I had joined 2 classes as I was pretty free on weekdays during that time. Also, people who cannot get themselves to study regularly must join some classes,it helps when you have a peer group and are in regular practice of solving problems. If you are the sincere kind, you can just do well with the test series. However, classes or not, test series is the real key to success in CAT.
How did you manage time while working ?
Can you talk more about your work place achievements and how did it help you in your journey to IIM-A ?
Since, I was relatively free at work, I had joined French classes and used to work out as well. The french classes helped, particularly in New-IIM’s interview, where I spoke in French with an European interviewer. Working out helped me as I could complete a mountain biking expedition in the Himalayas and could talk about it in the interviews. So in short, if you utilize your time well in some constructive activity, it will help, regardless.
You have some interesting hobbies and skills ? Can you elaborate more on it ? What one should do to demonstrate his/her co-curricular and extra-curricular activities to get an edge in PI ? How did you demonstrate it ?
Can you talk more about your next 5 year plan ?
Any advice to tackle PI effectively ? What did you do for essay writing ?
1. Conquer your fears: The most important point is to be confident. And confidence comes when you conquer your fears. Recognize your fears by being brutally honest with yourself about it, then work on it. For example, I was very scared about technical question in an interview. Thus I revised some of the important subjects from graduation. That helped me build up immense confidence
