hello everyone

i thought of sharing the experience of gd-pi for welingkar's pgdbm programme.

i had my gd-pi 30th april sunday the very next day of my tybms sem 6 last examination.

ok now about the gd : there were about 10 members in the group of which i think 2 of were engineers and one bms grad from punjab.
the topic for the gd was : mba in india is it overrated or not?
the topic was quiet easy and i think i had enough points to speak on.
after 4-5 min of thinking period given to the group the gd started and was quiet good.the overall experience was quiet good and i think it went well.

then comes the pi :
i was quiet lucky bcoz normally there were two panel members but during mine, there was only one.one lady left the room just before my pi and think she was the one who asked technicals.so i had to face only one and he was quiet cool person.he just asked me some and quiet easy questions.

he started my saying that "ohhhh u have a very long name"

asked me about doing BMS - answered it properly.

then asked about extra curriculars -answered it properly.

asked about my future plans - answered it properly.

asked me- what do think how much u will get if i had to evaluate on 100 for this pi -answered it properly.

finally he asked - what do u think about myself (about the interviewer) - answered it properly.

thats it.

so it was not that stressfull as i had expected.
lets see what happens as the final results are being expected between 15/5 to 20/5.

Re: POST YOUR PERSONAL INTERVIEW AND GD EXPERIENCES !! - May 29th, 2006

My Gd, PI was in Somaiya Colg .

Here goes the experience ...

Well.. late latif that i am, i reached dot at 2.30 ... they askd me to fill a form which i had to complete in 5 mins.. I did not know you hav to reach 1/2 hr ahead of the time which is written in the admit card ..

Some questions I recall ...

Your strenght and weakness :

My answer : Strenght : Try and try till I succeed
Weakness : Try and try till I succeed

( I think I should have answered, hunger for success in both )

Most significant moment acc to you for india in last decade

Ans : Sensex touches 11,000 +

One change that can take india to the top

Ans : Honest politicians . ( somehow I feel its a hyperbole )

There were couplea more which I cant recollect ...

=============================

Alright so the Gd starts

Topic : We need honest bureaucrats and not efficient managers ..

So some take honest bureaucrats side and some try to capitalise on efficient managers ..

My opinion : Both are complimentary to each other... without support of one, the other cannot do any good.. the statement of the topic i feel is not proper.

=======

Then Pi :

Silly stupid questions :

How many stations between borivli to churchgate : dnt knw

Hobbies: guitar blah blah... ohk which is costliest instrument.. piono playd by elton john.. he laughs...

company you thnk best in india.

ans: infosys because of management employee satisfaction balh blah..

question taker : infosys has same attrition rate as any it company...

me : so if it has same attrition rate.. then think of the management.. they still no 1 regardless of the employee turnover

Some more.. gtg...wil continue later. ..

@ between any1 can plz tell me some different even or incident which affected india?? - I think the 1991 liberalisation policy is one of the major events in India. It was the foundation stone due to which India has managed to develop fast in the last 2 decades. And it is due to that initial policy that people are predicting India to be a superpower by 2050.

@ and also wht steps to make india global?
Here again the need of the hour is more liberalisation. We cud start with changing our archaic labour laws. The govt has no business to be in business and it should try to get out of business in a structured manner and pay more attention to governance.
The other important point is the need to improve infrastructure drastically be it roads, airports, warehousing, power etc. Without a change in this...the current feel good may start changing soon.

@ and over here mba students... plz tell WHY MBA only?? - I think this is a very relative question so will depend from person to person

Cheers!!

Re: POST YOUR PERSONAL INTERVIEW AND GD EXPERIENCES !! - June 6th, 2006

Here's my experience of IIFT gd/pi

Venue : IIFT Bhawan
Time : 9 :30 AM
ME : . B.com { DU } , no wrk ex.

First of all we were taken to a room on 1st floor where we were given our essay topics and 20 mins to write . Topic was " Globalization and its effect on Indian Value System " - okay topic I thought

Then we straightaway went for out GD . The setting was pretty cool , big room with Rectangular chair , I had the worst seat , one in the end corner ..

Topic : Education system , democracy something.... a very vague topic , which it needed to be for a 1 hr GD

great topic , my participation was good , made a lot of entries and a lot of genralisations , lots of quotes and stuff from me ... The overall discussion was pretty good , just one guy who was not contributing enough .. In the end we told him to sum up and he couldnt , then a girl summed up , I think i could have done it better bcoz i was the one taking proper notes but didnt .. We were told to moderate ourselves .. Every guy got 3 minutes for it


Interview : Went in , large room , went around to the panel . 3 people in the panel

Q. 1 . How are you ???
me : fine sir , a bit tense , blah blah

Q.2 Did u fill this form in a hurry?
me : Yes sir

Q. 3 Why have you not written ur major subjects ? This is very careless of you
me : sorry sir , blah blah

Q. IS this the way to write Phd { I had written it perfectly fine , he was just trying to psyche me out}
me : yes , no , i thought so sir

Q. Why have you filled ur form in capitals ???
me : poor handwriting , blah blah

Q.. Whats your fav. Movie ?
me : Gladiator

Q. What can a manager learn from it ???

me : Some stuff about leading by example , never losing hope , inspiring people

Q. Thats all ??

me : sir nothing else is coming to my mind .. ( what the hell does he want , good direction ? cost cutting ? )


Q2. So wats going on in F1 racing these days ?
me : Blah , Blah

Q. So do you think that FIA unduly favours Ferrari ??
me : blah , blah
Q. 3 .India have lost to South Korea in davis cup , who are they going to play next ??
me : dont know sir

Q. In your form you have written tht you want to be an active participant in the Indian growth story . How are you going to do that ?
me : blah blah , not doing routine work , something about innovation

Q. So which companies will give you routine work ?
me : not really about comapny , rather the job profile..

Q. Can we ask you about aceds ??
me : something about DU not putting too much stress about in depth knowledge

Q. What is dep ???
me : blah blah

Q. So if i dont use this pen will it still depriciate ?
me : blah blah

Q. Is dep. a revenue or expenditure ??
me : expenditure

some stuff that i couldnt remember
and then they wished me luck for my future in advance .....

Re: POST YOUR PERSONAL INTERVIEW AND GD EXPERIENCES !! - June 6th, 2006

My interview experience at LBSIM
date : 20/02/06
Venue : LBSIM
Time : 11 AM

Got there early , was made to wait outside in that little itsy bitsy lawn that they have , abt 1130 we all moved into the building . They took us to auditorium first.. A long presentation followed abt LBS, then we were made to wait a bit more , mine was panel C , so we were 2nd in line 4 the GD ..

GD : No table , just chairs , and guess what guys , 15 ppl in a GD with 10 minuutes limit and we were told not to make a fish market .. we were told to pick a chit up for a our topic and all that. We got "To stop brain drain , should engineers be made to sign a bond tht they will work in India for 2 years " . Newayz we started to make it a bit of a fish mkt . Then moderator interfered and made abt 5 guys speak up . Then he tells us to go again. So we make it a fish market again. No consensus in the end , 4 guys tried to summerize , me included and none was able to do it properly... I made 2 entries

Interview : I was the 5th guy , 1st came the extempore , when I came in these guys were having snacks , 5 of them and one poor little me ...

m1 : So you are chaitanya ?
me: yes sir ( obviously )

m2 :Ur extempore topic is ( looks around , focusses on a samosa , I was scared that i was going to get the samosa as a topic , but then he decided on a call bell that wsa sitting on the table ) this call bell ,( smiles deviously )
me: ( began after 3 secs ) talked about call bell showing division of labour within the society , talked about why the bell glowed red when you pushed the buton , and ended with technology and how it was permeating our daily lives .

m2 : ( looks at me like i had to say something very profound about the call bell and didnt ) Have you done B. Com ?
me : yes ( obviously )

m3: honours or pass ?
me : pass ( obviously )( its written on the form )

4-5 questions on my family background followed ,

m1 : hobbies ?
me: told him

m1: how would they help you during your future life ?
me: told him, martial arts and reading so i think i related pretty well.

m3: did u study accounting ?
me: yes sir ( obviously )

m3 : what is cost accounting ?
me : ( froze for a sec , i had actually read this last night and was trying to recall the exact def. ) mumbled something ( he decided i didnt know ) ( but i did )

m3 : what is a balance sheet ?
me : told him the exact def.

m1: thnks
me: thank u sir

sum other stuff was asked that i dont remember now ...
there was a lady there who didnt ask nething , and another industry guy who didnt get involved to much . so very chilled out affair
But i thought that they had already decided about me when i finished the extempore and the rest was just formality.., not too sure abt it though...
I mean that after that they really didnt ask me nething that tested me ..another girl got her extempore topic "water bottle " ...
