Batch 14
cet score:118
Group Discussion
For the gd, the participants are seated in a semicircle. Three old men were judging us. They seemed to be in a good mood.
I had the same 2 topics as above
1. Impact of economic reforms in India has been that rich have become richer and poor poorer.
2. Animals shouldn’t be used for testing medicines and drugs.
We voted 8-5 for the 1st topic. I voted for 2nd one.

I didn’t start. I talked second. I must’ve spoken around 6-7 times in the 15 minute gd, didn’t speak much, only a sentence or two each time, but I thought it was relevant(NREGA, services accounting for 57% of GDP and agriculture 27%). Some things went tangential to the topic like call centers  reservation and brain drain and were talked at length. One more thing I realized later was that we were all trying to find a problem to solve(e.g., awareness among rural people) whereas the topic didn’t require any such thing.
The three judges interrupted at around 8-9 minutes to let the people who had not spoken much.
Was a civilized GD, more because no one could really have known in detail about the topic.
And oh yeah, I was shivering due to the AC admit! Had a hard time managing that.

Personal Interview
PI was taken by one old guy, probably >60 and another young.

OG asked about y I that my significant event was significant. I told.
Saw that I had done IT engg. YG was quick to ask me IT minister of Maharashtra and India. I din know.
Why MBA and not MTech?
I talked sum thing about broadening my scope. The YG was counter questioning even as I finished giving my reply. Eventually, they asked me what aim I had in life, if I had thought what I wanted to do.. and I said no. LOL! But I said right now I want to do an MBA.
After that they asked if I read anything else.. I said I used to read Ruskin bond and Sherlock Holmes. He asked me to narrate a Ruskin bond story. Where does he write from? More about Sherlock Holmes and his arch enemy, proof. Moriarty. The OG seemed to have read Sherlock Holmes.
Final qn was who is vice president of India. I didn’t know that.
So not a very good pi. I was only defending myself throughout.

Group Discussion
GD topics:

Gd was good. everyone spoke. no fish market. but after a certain time people started repeating points. Gd lasted only for 15mins.

Personal Interview
For PI two panelists were there. both in their 50’s.
I think they were the coolest panelists.
made me feel so comfortable.
dint feel like somebody was taking my interview.
felt like was having a conversation with a friend.

as soon as I entered they asked me the meaning of my name.
when I told, they gave their sweetest smile.
has I had a gap of two years after my graduation asked me what I did for these to yrs (had absolutely expected this).
gave them the reason… were convinced.

told them I had volunteered for teaching and counselling at a local NGO, asked me what I do there, how I manage things, and whether my counselling has made any difference in their lives?

asked what I do in my free time?
said I read, paint…
what kind of reading?

do u read newspapers?
yes, everyday.
give names of 5 cabinet ministers from Maharashtra along with their portfolios.
gave 4 names. dint know the 5th one. they gave me his name.
what is this time’s five year plan?
dint know the answer…
since when is the five year plan started.
1951
on what basis does the govt make this plan?
gave the points.
asked difference between growth and development.
gave the difference with e.g….. they were happy

as I had mentioned about retail mgmt in my profile.
they asked which college I was aiming for?
after certain period of time they started counselling me. told me which colleges I should go for. what should I do , how should I select colleges?

NO tell about yourself.
NO significant event.
NOTHING from the profile.
few questions from politics, thts it!!!
PI over.
had never imagined that the pi would be so good.
all 15mins went smiling.

Venue: Welingkar Matunga
Time:14:00-15:00

Group Discussion
actual GD process started at 14:25 next 2-3 minutes was few points to remember while GD like no fish market ,and all. then they asked us to introduce ourselves out 14 1 was absent so they asked us not to keep that chair unoccupied but to shift to next chair so that the group will look cohesive then 2 topics were given they were…
GD topics
1 – why India cannot become a global player in industries as it is in software
2 – I have never learnt anything in my life from a person who agrees with me..(chosen)

though it was a statement which has 2 b accepted as the way it was but we started taking a stand as 2 if it is acceptable or not it went on for 15 to 17 mins after every 5 mins they gave something called as wake up call to those who were keeping mum. panel consisted of 3 gentlemen one senior member and other 2 middle aged members when GD was over they reminded us about the misinterpretation of the topic but thankfully none of the candidates argued on those lines. we left GD room at about 15:15hrs
Personal Interview

P1 young member
P2 senior member
they asked questions given in the profile sheet. Asked me something on environment like what to do about global warming as manager which ministry in state or in centre looks after this my interest in teaching field etc it went on foe about 10 mins

2) Money and not knowledge gives you name and fame in life

Gd was normal. No Fish Market. It lasted for around 20 mins and then immediately we were taken to the PI room.

    Firstly, we were shown a brief presentaion abt the b-school. I felt it quite boring. Was just chatting wid a girl besides me all through it…:p
    Then, they took us in group of 12 for our GD. The topic was “DOCTORS AND ETHICS GO SIDE BY SIDE” sth lyk that. It was a chaos. 1 guy and a girl took over a charge and made it a fish mkt.
    But I interrupted them and brought it again on track.
    It was, overall I fell, was an ok GD.
    Then came the turn for my PI. there were 2 interviewers both of them in their early 30’s . As I saw them, they gave me a mischievous smile and that very moment I knew, I’m gonna be SCREWED very hard.:( . And the same thing happened. No technical ques asked at all. Just some basic ques like tell me abt urself, strengths, wekness, hobbies, why welingkar’s etc.. It was gng gr8 till the tym they asked me abt GAAR. I tried alot but could not remem the fullform and from that very moment they totally raped me. They asked me a puzzle which I was not able to solve. Overall they screwed me well…
    After my PI I was feeling low. Then came d same hot girl, sat besides me and before I could speak, she cried. I thought WTF. Maine kya bigaada iska. Phir pata chala panelist ne iski ache se le li… Then I consoled her and we were taken for CREATIVE TEST.
    ‘DARING’ was the word which was given to us and seriously speaking I drew such a nonsense thing that whosoever will be checking that will laugh like hell…aur agar maine tum logo ko bata diya ji kya draw kiya toh tum sab ki bhi yahi halat honi hai…:D
    Finally, psychometric test came into action. Within 8 min solved all 63 ques…
    Overall it was a good experience. Made some frnds spcl that girl, :’), got screwed, had fun and free ka nashta bhi mila….:D
