From 85 to 99.88 percentile in 45 days
About Neil:
He is Neil Merchant. His Grand Father named him so as he wanted Neil to be an astronaut! Well, he carved a different journey and has taken a giant leap now – he is heading to IIM Calcutta this year.
Currently in his final year at the BITS Pilani Goa Campus. He is a life-enthusiast and enjoys the variety it has to offer. Apart from indulging in the Goan susegad life, he gets a kick out of playing tennis, singing, and writing poems. Neil was very active in his undergraduate course, where he headed the sponsorship and placement departments of the campus. He has had diverse interesting experiences through his journey at the Jagriti Yatra, Lowfundwala (an advertising start-up based out of Mumbai) and TRRAIN, an NGO for the empowerment of people in the retail industry.

The only thing he will not divulge is his grades in Engineering :)

To know about how he went from 85 percentile to 99.88 percentile in CAT 2014, read on…

Zor Ka Jhatka Dheere Se… B-School orientation session. May 16

Dear Student,

It is a fact of life that the next goal is all-consuming for us in life. It is so overwhelming that we don’t see further. While that is an asset when in pursuit, it is equally important to move on when the outcomes are known! Life moves on. So should you. Reset your goals, re-program your mind, reschedule your calendar, re-habit yourself!

IIML, XLRI, FMS, JBIMS – Koi kisi se kam nahin

If you have been selected for IIM A/B/C, you need not read beyond this point. But if you converted IIML, FMS and/or XLRI or hope to convert JBIMS then it becomes confusing. Should you go for the IIM Tag or the ROI or the aura of XLRI?

As a student if you are interested in HR then XLRI is the place to be in. The best offers for HR in India are only open to XLRI or TISS graduates. Hardly anyone from other B schIf you are a person from agri related course or interested in micro finance or agri related jobs (marketing, supply chain) go for IIML – ABM.

CLAT 2015 – My take

CLAT 2015 has two firsts to its credit – one, it is the first Computer Based CLAT and second it has removed the age limit for CLAT applicants and allowed me to take the paper. So here is my take of my debut CLAT.

CLAT 2015 was not a lengthy paper and students would not have struggled for time but there were surprises in all sections. The language of many questions was not upto the mark and I wondered if proof-reading was done before releasing the paper. Also it appears that the people who created the paper are in awe of IIMs and hence put a few questions directly from old CAT papers or maybe NLU Lucknow outsourced paper setting to IIM Lucknow :-)

Jayein toh jayein kahaan 2015: Which Institute?

A student seeking my advice on which institute to join said “sir, if I were your nephew then after considering all factors which out of these three institute would you recommend?”

There is always a dilemma when it comes to choosing institutes because wrong choice of institute could very easily lead to poor career growth or waste of money or both and unfortunately most of the B school rankings have different ranks for the same institute. Also most rankings do not consider students point of view and have a low weight for their most important criteria – placements. Continue Reading

5 Mantras to master the Interview

Now that all results of all MBA entrances have been declared, the focus has now shifted to preparation for the Personality Assessment stage. The admission test eliminates around 95% of the candidates and this makes many candidates with interview calls complacent. The reality is that in the Personality Assessment stage, while the number of students you will be competing against is fewer, the quality of competition is higher. Each student who is short listed by the institute deserves to be in the final list, but only those who are well prepared will finally make it. This stage is difficult because its focus is on those aspects that have been ignored by most of us as they were never part of our school and college exams.
