rahulpinnamaneni : You can expect a call. It'd be a border case though.


saurabh : IF WE GET A DIFFICULT DILR SECTION IN CAT... WHAT SHOULD BE OUR STRATEGY IN ATTEMPTING QUESTIONS
ankur : strategy does not change in case of a tough exam or easy exam. always scan everything and do what you can in the given time. start with less time consuming sets and questions. if paper is easy then you will score a lot and if the paper is tough then also you can score whatever you can. don't give up.


preeti : HELLO SIR, I AM GETTING 40.17 IN IIFT. GETTING A HIGH SCORE IN CAT LOOKS TO BE SLIM. I HAVE ALSO TAKEN GMAT- SCORE 680 AND MADE IT TO ISB AS I HAVE 3 YEARS OF WORK-EXP.

ankur : don't worry. in the words of harsha bhogle (speaking about vvs laxman), "form is temporary, class is permanent". CAT is not AIMCAT. do your best! you will easily get more than 97%ile if you don't worry. focus on what you know not on what you don't know!

sg : SIR/MA'AM, DO WE HAVE TO REGISTER AND PAY AGAIN FOR NMIMS DURING THE NMAT RETAKE? AND CAN WE PAY AFTER THE SCORE COMES OUT OR DO WE HAVE TO PAY BEFORE THE EXAM ONLY?
rahulpinnamaneni : You don't have to register again, but you do have to pay the exam fee again. You can always register after the scores are out, there's no compulsion that you have to book a slot before. Beware though, if the windows for NMAT ends, you can't re-take the exam.

srinivasbelvi : In general, those who completed graduation are eligible to take the test. However read the notification for any mention about provisions being made for final year students if any.


rrrrrrrrrrrrrrr : WHAT SHOULD BE SOLVED IN THESE LAST DAYS ?
asim : You can begin by analyzing your performance so far in AIMCATs, at micro level, ie figure out which chapters/type of questions are troubling you and then work on those kind of questions from rest of the study material. You must take a SAMCAT each day ( preferably at same time slot as CAT ), carry out analysis of your performance, before taking the next SAMCAT. On the remaining days ( days when you are not taking the SAMCAT ), you must revise the AIMCATs

07cr : OFFTOPIC- CONSIDERING THERE IS A CHANGE IN SNAP PATTERN. WHAT WOULD YOU CALL A SAFE SCORE FOR CLEARING SIBM PUNE ,SCMHRD, SIIB AND SIBM BANGALORE CUT OFF "RESPECTIVELY"?
ramnath : Based on the last year paper, a score above 90 "may" be considered to be safe. But, too early to say this yet.


adarsh : HELLO SIR! IF I AM NOT WRONG THERE WERE A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS WHICH DIDNT HAVE A VALID OPTION IN IIFT EXAM THIS YEAR. ARE MARKS AWARDED FOR EVERYONE IN SUCH CASE OR IS THE QUESTION INVALIDATED?

anujkhanna : Probability is low. Concentrate on coming exams / do well / all the best.


jiltedpixie : WILL EVERY PERSON CROSSING THE CUTOFFS GET A CALL FROM IIFT?
ramnath : The cutoffs are fixed post-facto, after the scores are collated. As we do not know what they can be for sure, we predict based on the info we have for earlier years. If you have crossed the cutoffs in all the sections and overall too as per the predicted values, you stand a very good chance. All the best


exotica : DO I HAVE A CHANCE AT IIFT, DELHI?

ankur : check the questions. if they are indirect (use words like may, probably, understood, implied, suggested etc.) then it is a tough question. don't worry about passage difficulty if question is easy. take it up. you can do the question without reading the passage by just searching for the answers in this case.

rajeshsaraf : For CAT Vocab is not a significant area..try and solve at least 6 passages daily and complete about 50 passages in the run up to CAT

rahulpinnamaneni : If the AIMCAT is easier, remember that it's relative, it's easy for everyone. It's just that you did well. Maybe you tend to score more on moderate level tests, or maybe you really got better at scoring.

srinivasbelvi : If you do not have reservation advantage, then it is a sub-par score to expect an interview call. Just move on.


rjt : ARE NEW IIMS WORTH GIVING GO ?
ramnath : Absolutely. They are constanty moving up th hierarchy...IIMS I and K were in a similar position 2 decades ago. The brand IIM is a longterm thing..So go for them.


alank : ARE THERE COLLEGES WHICH TAKE ONLY XAT SCORES(NON MEMBER INSTITUTES)AND NOT CATS ?WHICH IS WORTH APPLYING?
ankur : check the website of XAT and our bschool categorisation. check the intersection. u will find a few colleges like that. even if they take cat, writing XAT for them is a good idea since similar performance in CAT and XAT is likely to give you higher percentile in XAT as it has less number of people writing it.


mh26 : SIR, I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT THE ROI OF SP JAIN GLOBAL MBA PROGRAM. ANY IDEA?
ankur : suggestion is check the salary levels (expected) and the fees. if the fees is getting repaid in 2-3 years or less then makes good ROI. if not, do consider non-financial benefits of an MBA like better career and better opportunities and then take a final decision.


aaa : SIR PLEASE SUGGEST ME COLLEGE MY AIMCAT PERCENTILE RANGE IS 65-70 MY 10 AND 12 % ARE 90 & 91 AND B.COM 72

anujkhanna : of course clearing the cutoff means you will go to next round. Right now keep reading newspaper and keep watching news. Read the general guidelines for GDPI and after the result rest can be prepared.


xat : WHAT ALL COLLEGES CAN I OPT WITH XAT SCORE WITHOUT APPLYING SEPERATELY FOR OTHER COLLEGES LIKE IF WE APPLY FOR CAT ,WE WILL NOT REQUIRE TO APPLY FORE IIMS, SIMILARLY IF WE APPLY FOR XAT WHAT ALL COLLEGES WE MAY NOT APPLY PLEASE LET ME KNOW

12345 : I ALWAYS SCORED 90-97% IN 20 AIMCATS. BUT THERE IS A DECREASE IN THE LAST 5 AIMCATS. IN AIMCATS 1701 IT WAS ONLY 75%.WHAT DO I DO AT THIS STAGE
ramnath : Study the reason for the low score--did the attempts drop or did the accuracy drop or both? Study the reasons for this and compare this with the aimcats where you did well. You should be able to find a reason.


qwertytrewq : HOW TO IMPROVE DI AND RC IN LAST 3-4 DAYS... 1 SET ALWAYS GOES UNTOUCHED IN AIMCATS FROM THESE SECTIONS

teja : SIR, I GOT 41.84 IN IIFT.
srinivasbelvi : It is a good effort may not be good enough to fetch a call unless you have reservation advantage.
