Interview series: Interviews 2-3-4

Hi all,
I am really in a off-mood after the meek surrender by India. The team is seriously lacking intent to win and India's chances of bettering the previous World Cup performance really looks bleak!

Anyway, the Interview series continues:

Interview 2: of a PGP student who cracked one section and made up for her weakness in Quants.

Interview 3: of a PGP student who cracked the other two sections and inspite of a very poor performance in QA, got 99.9 percentile and cracked IIMA.

Interview 4: of a PGP-ABM student - for those aspirants targeting IIMA PGP-ABM!

Check out! 20 more interviews will be coming in next 2 weeks - keep watching CATIIMATALES!

Happy Diwali and Catiimatales is back!

This time CATIIMATALES is back with a bang! We'll be producing interviews and CAT experiences of atleast 20 candidates from last year who made into IIM-A. It'll be how many they answered and which sections they answered first - how many questions they attempted from each section.

These interviews will definitely help you to analyze and compare across successful candidates and finally come up with a strategy of your own - Never before you got such an opportunity!


Thanks for all your Diwali wishes. Hope you had a wonderful diwali too... we lighted a lot of diyas and decorated our dorms... I'll post the pictures tomorrow.

Till then keep watching the CATIIMATALES!

Happy mugging and take care.
