anks : sir is there any sectional cut-off in snap?
suresh : no.

amu : for nmat.. i knw d portion... i m nt able to properly prepare.. i wanna knw a strategy for d same.. pls guide
asim : Except for the section on Logical Reasoning, all the other sections of NMAT get well covered with a good preparation for CAT. However, it would be advisable for a student to work on his/her speed mathematics as some of the questions under Data Interpretation tend to be calculation intensive. Also, 120 questions in120 minutes means that the candidate needs to be really quick in solving the questions. The questions in reasoning section of NMAT are: · Series, Analogies, Odd man out, Coding & Decoding, and Symbols & Notations · Analytical puzzles (Linear arrangement, Circular arrangement, Distribution, Comparisons and Selections) · Critical reasoning (Assumptions, Conclusions, Inferences, Strong & Weak arguments, Courses of action, Cause & Effect, Assertions and Reasons, Deductions, Input / Output, and Decision Making). The CAT students have received the reasoning Study Material - SM 1001308 and SM 1161206 (both with solutions). SM 1161206 covers the topics - Series, Analogies, Odd man out, Coding & Decoding, and Symbols & Notations. These topics were introduced to the CAT students in Logic Basics - 2 (LAHO 1001302). One can quickly get thorough with these topics by solving the exercises from SM 1161206. Particularly the questions based on Coding & Decoding and Symbols & Notations test the speed of the students. SM 1001308 has one exercise for each of the topics in analytical puzzles. There was a thorough discussion of each of these kind of puzzles in Logic Basics - 1 (LAHO 1001301) and in LAPEs and LATs. Among the critical reasoning topics, Assumptions, Conclusions, Inferences, and Strong & Weak arguments were discussed in LR classes for CAT students. For the topics, Courses of Action, Cause & Effect, and Assertions & Reasons, if the students want to refer to some extra material apart from the T.I.M.E. Material, he / she can take the help of Critical Reasoning book authored by M.K. Pandey. The questions based on deductions are different from the deductions questions given in CAT. These questions need to be solved using Venn Diagrams. For these questions and Input / Output & Decision Making questions, students can refer to the reasoning book authored by R.S. Aggarwal. However, these extra materials should be referred to only after the student has exhausted the T.I.M.E. Material. Finally, T.I.M.E.’s OMETs for NMAT are perhaps the best source for preparation.They come very close to the actual NMAT entrance exam paper and one should give maximum importance to these question papers as they give sufficient exam practice to the candidates. The candidates can accustom themselves to the NMAT pattern by taking these mocks.

senthil : Sir I belong to NC-OBC and I have 52 months work experience. What would be minimum CAT percentile required to get a good IIM?
nvs : cut-off's for each category are given on the IIM Wbsites as well our t4e homepage, pl go thru that. Generally speaking, NC-OBC should get around 90+ to stake a claim at the top-IIMs

superstar147 : Sir which is better great lakes chennai or GIM?
vivek : For 2 yr program, GIM. However if you have more than 2 yrs workex, then Great Lakes

anuj : how good is fore and lbsim for experienced people with 3 yrs of experience?
asim : You may keep them as a back up option, if you are keen on pursuing MBA this year itself. We grade Fore among the A grade B-schools and LBSIM among the BBB grade B-schools.

eh : sir during campus recruitment do the interviewer check back the cat and other entrance score again?
asim : Not really, though having a good percentile,rank can be highlighted in your resume as one of your academic achievement.

eh : @sureh yes cat n cmat
suresh : tell me your background.

amu : for nmat i need a extra material.. wic book u recommend after completin time books for LR..
asim : T.I.M.E. material is more than sufficient for your preparation. In case you want another source you can prepare with TRISHNA publication's books on LR,QUANT AND VA, they are available at most of the T.I.M.E. offices.

roni : Sir in aimcat some of my scores are 99+,98+,98+,97+,97+,95+,95+,95+,95+,94+,93+,91+,90+......With 1-2 mishaps...I have attempted around 48 questions in cat....What kind of a percentile can i expect???????Please reply sir....

lolita : sir, when can we expect the first round of nmat scores? last year they used to release it every two weeks!
vivek : We too are expecting the same :)

kkk : sir how different is the pattern of iift and snap from cat? how should i prepare for them specifically?
vivek : You can look at IIFT and SNAP patterns of last 3-4 years on our home page. Pls keep in mind, SNAP and IIFT (for the last two years) do not have sectional cut offs. Also there is GK in these tests and the marks allotted for each question is different.

aditya : Sir, could you please rank LIBA, SIBM (B'lore) and NMIMS (Blore) amongst themselves?
bharat : NMIMS and SIBM BLR are new campuses, with high parental pedigree; so both are equally good, with LIBA in next place.

sherli : pls ans sir.. m waiting
asim : Answered,plz check

kkk : sir i am a dentist. is it disadvantageous for my profile?
nvs : Not at all, only thing is how do you justify why MBA, and rem'ber there are always a few doctors who study at top B Schools in India

taran : sir sectional cut is really matter to get admission in cat clgs..and which are these clgs..
kapildixit : Sectionals are really important for IIMs, FMS, MDI, SP Jain, but as you go down focus is on a high overall score and balanced performance where sectionals may be on a lower side.

superstar147 : sir by may 2013 i will have 10 months of work experience. which college should i prefer GIM or Great lakes?
kapildixit : GIM is better choice.

rums : hi sir, i have nt taken any exams so far, do i still stay with a chance to take up the test and apply for the schools?
vivek : Yes. Apply to XAT, SNAP, TISS and the Feb CMAT. You obviously would not be able to apply to colleges that take only CAT scores.

ady : sir, wid my current aimcat percentile , highest bein 72.4 what all colleges can i apply ??
suresh : KIMS,SDMIMD ,ITM navi mumbai and BIMTECH NOIDA.

bharat : MBA from any of the NITs is pretty good; NIT Trichy cutoff was around 90%ile, with lower cutoff for the other NITs.

suhail : Hi which colleges under SNAP should i apply to....considering I was scoring 70 %ile in AIMCATS on average
tanuja : you can aaply to SIBM, SIIB SCMHRD,,,, but you need to practise a little more before snap exam according to snap pattern /

abcd : XIMB, GIM N GLIM percentiles required to get a call through XAT ?
vivek : XIM and Great Lakes (1yr program) take both CAT and XAT Scores. Cat Cut off for XIMB - 95%tile with 90%tile+ sectionals. XAT Cut off 95%tile with sectional cutoffs in mid 80s. Great Lakes 85%tile + overall in CAT / XAT no sectionals. GIM takes XAT and CMAT scores. Cut off (last year) XAT 78%tile (no sectionals) and CMAT a score of around 190

sherli : posting ag9 so sorry, bt plz ans Sirs, everybody suggest bank po papers for irma, i got 150 total in ibps po of 17th june which was one the toughest as also reviewd by T.I.M.E . Also taking the four secs of IRMA i got 120, reasn 26 , quant 37, eng 33, ga, 24.. is XIMB within my reach with these
tanuja : yes , it is reason being the time of 2 months which you have before your XAT exam \

amit : Sir, currently i am working with an IT firm, with pack of 4.5 LPA.In case i get this opportunity, should i join K.J.Somaiya ? or is it better to try next year ?
bharat : KJ Som is pretty good; however, considering your current pay, the school may not add great value as the average pay is around Rs6 lakh (which you would get to in two years if you continue working).

sonu : i am expecting 98+ percentile in cat. should i start preparing for GEPIs or should concentrate on other exams like iift, snap and xat?? i have already applied to these institutions.
vivek : Both should go hand in hand. Pls make sure that you brush up your GK. It would be useful for GDs as well.

anku1234 : Sir my score in sep mat was 550 which clgs can i apply for plz tell me
kapildixit : MAT colleges usually look at 500+ score and give weightage to GDPI and your overall performance. Based on your selective locations you can apply to many colleges.

vik : Which IIM's are good for a candidate looking for a marketing profile
vivek : All IIMs

taran : sir if i does not fill many clgs form then there is any chance,that those clgs, call us if we cross that clg %tile...
nvs : No, unless you apply how can they call. Some not so good colleges do that but mostly based on MAT Scores, not based on CAT Score

anuj : any executive mba courses in india which require 3-4 yrs of experience (not 5) at the time of joining ?
nvs : GLIM - 1 yr prog is probably one of the best for that exp

kapildixit : CMAT will conduct state wise counselling after State GDPI. Cannot comment but certainly you can get decent colleges in Maharastra as well other states accepting CMAT scores. But you have to make a judicious choice as you are already working. You can also take CMAT-Feb as they take best of two. There is no hurry of applying.

vivek : You can overcome these problems. Do not worry. Concentrate on your exams for now.

anuj : can you pls mention the colleges which run the executive mba courses with 3 yr of experience(n not 5) as minimum exp required.
vivek : Great Lakes, ISB. With three yrs of exp the others are not worth the effort.

taran : sir i have already give my cat exam n i expect 70 to 80 marks ,so which clgs form should i fill bt with in delhi or ncr
asim : We cannot predict your percentile based on your marks as IIMs carry out normalization process.

abhi : How to prepare for IIFT an SNAP General Awareness.. Is time material is enough for GK..
asim : For section on General Awareness, in addition to reading newspapers regularly, it would be advisable for a student to prepare from the following sources: Last 10-12 issues of MBA Education and Careers including October edition (T.I.M.E. Magazine) GAHO and GAT question papers Economic Times Manorama & CSR Year Book - it helps in preparation for stock type questions While preparing for this section, a student should focus on issues related to National & International Events, World Bodies, and Foreign Trade related information. Finally, OMETs for IIFT/SNAP question papers are perhaps the best source for preparation. It comes very close to the actual IIFT/SNAP entrance exam paper and one should give maximum importance to these question papers.
