4 years of going nowhere – My journey with CAT

In the past couple of months, I’ve dabbled with a lot of stuff to do on weekends. Standup comedy, Improv, going to Toastmasters, meeting old friends here in Bangalore, going through pickup books and videos, trying to write on my blog, etc. And to be honest I am struggling on all of them. This was not the case until December. My weekends were quite sorted then.

For the uninitiated or any foreign audiences (Yeah, I am optimistic), Common Aptitude test or CAT is an exam conducted by the Indian Institutes of Management(IIM’s) to select students for their PGDM(or MBA) programmes. They are conducting this exam since 1950 but I’ve been giving this exam since 2015. It’s 2019 now.

Every year when I attend the CAT workshops by any coaching class, they have this constant itch to ask “Who is giving the exam for the first time?” A lot of hands go up. They ask for the students giving the 2nd time. Plenty of hands go up. It gradually decreases until they ask how many are giving it for the 5th time. No one has raised a hand in my 4 years of experience. Needless to say, I’ve raised my hands in all 4 of the instances.

Side note: You know the feeling when the words that are being typed out don’t exactly convey the thoughts and the emotions you are going through at the moment. I am living that feeling right now.

I won’t go into the details as to what I did in the years, how much I scored, what happened in the interviews, etc. That’s all noise now. Its just numbers.

I am more than a number.

I know I can’t just sit here and crib about the interviews or that my Quant prep was not up to the mark. But things didn’t turn out the way I’d expected. There was this thing with the interviews. Especially this year when I went for my MICA interview, I was completely in my head. I thought I’d just impress the interviewers with my perseverance stories and approach to job search. That is a very bad attitude to take to an interview because then I put the control in someone else’s hand and eventually even blame them for not selecting me. Then the interview becomes a means to an end(the selection).

But that’s it. I have decided to follow the path that has worked the best for me. As the intro para said, I am trying all the things that I was afraid to do but was supposed to do. I am also looking for a job as a copywriter in a mainline ad agency and might have to start fresh as an Intern. Not only because it sounds adventurous but because I don’t have any other option.

It’s getting emotional for me now, but this journey has changed me a lot, in hindsight. Getting the motivation to leave Chemical Engg for IT and then leaving IT for Advertising came from the lure of living with people who’ll improve my personality and help me in cracking the interviews (Yes, I had a narrow view of the world, I still do).

In the eyes of the world, I might be a failure in the conventional sense. I mean, c’mon, how many guys that you know of have failed in 1 exam 4 times. Yes, I’ve seen friends from 2015/16 do an MBA and get 15+ lakh “CTC” and supposedly the feeling of making it in life. I’ve also seen friends and acquaintances from 2015/16/17 do an MBA and then get an internship and then ask if they can get a job at the company I am working at right now. People have left the country to make it in the USA while some have left the high rises of Mumbai and found their calling in rural.

I, for one, gathered the courage to say no to my IT job and go where I think I belong to, Advertising.

Wow, I feel a lot better and lighter writing this. I know I’ll be a different person in the coming years with new experiences and meetings but this moment right now and the culmination of all the failures, learnings and occasional rumination on them does make me happy.

The struggle is still there, but as Sahir Ludhianvi wrote,

Gham Aur Khushi Mein Farq Na Mehsoos Ho Jahan
Main Dil Ko Us Muqaam Pe Laata Chala Gaya

Main Zindagi Ka Saath Nibhaata Chala Gaya
Har Fikar Ko Dhein Mein Udata Chala Gaya

I am still trying to solve the puzzle, but I am loving the fact that I get to work on the puzzle. I know you might not be having the best days of your life right now but hold on to yourself, talk to someone who loves you and if you want, why not show me some love?

Handa ka Funda GK course Review

I first noticed the site Handa ka Funda (HKF) when its founder Mr. Ravi Handa was answering questions on Quora on CAT and the depth with which his answers instilled an image of him in me that this guy knows his stuff.

This year, I am also going to appear for CAT and because of that, I signed for the GK course on HKF.This is its review.

The course, starts with a video on ” How to prepare for GK in 60 minutes” which is delivered by Ravi sir himself. The name is pretty self explanatory and the video also has a Q&A session which answers many doubts aspirants have regarding GK.

Then there are the Factopedia videos, which is easily the trump card of the GK course. Right now, as in 2017, the biggest issues are the Rohingya crisis, Bitcoin price surge, Demonetization, etc., and all of these issues have been taken care of in Factopedia by Ravi sir. There are other videos on Finance bill, Indian stock market, crisis in Northeast India, etc.

Factopedia mainly revolves around the current affairs topics, and apart from GK in SNAP/IIFT, they are also very important for GD/WAT in the selection procedure. They are presented in video format which makes it pretty interesting to see and if you dread reading the newspaper everyday, this might be the cure.

Then, there is this “World this month” series which are essentially PPT’s of 5-7 slides which encapsulates all the major happenings in India and around the world and the ones which will be important in the GK section of the exams.

There are two Factopedia sections, one for banking and Economics which focuses on explaining all the Banking terminology and how it functions. The other one focusing on SNAP specific GK as in deaths, Bollywood, etc.

There are also PPT’s for static GK, which covers all the important aspects like Rivers and borders, Major dams, countries and capitals, judiciary and committees, etc.

One important thing that I liked about the GK course was that they even explained the Union budget, Economic survey and Foreign policies in a very easy and understandable way. These topics are very important with respect to B-school selection process but are overlooked by aspirants because of the complexity.

If you are a curious soul and have been in the know how of India, reading newspapers regularly in the last 1-2 years, you might not need the course. But if not, then this course will provide you all the important aspects of IIFT and SNAP GK in a very easily graspable format with videos and live presentations.

5 Interesting Science Projects for Class 8 Students

For most among us, there is a widespread opinion that the subject science loses its charm once we reach Class VIII. But this does not have to be like that as there are educator’s like Byju’s the learning app that showcases the untapped aspects of the subject in an interactive format where the lectures are in animated video modes that capture the attention of students those who want to know more on the subject of science.

The subject that used to enchant students turns to a tough nut to crack. Students are asked to understand and learn about different types of living organisms no matter whether it is simple or complex. In the due course, students get to learn about the formation of our planet and its structure etc. Projects or activities like this are aimed at testing the students on how much they have learned and what distance they need to travel to succeed. There are different science projects available for CBSE Class 8 students that you can go for. Check these small projects mentioned below would be helpful to fulfill this objective.

8th Class Science Project 1

What: To form clay models of different microorganisms related to Biology like amoebae, chlamydomonas and paramecium

Why: To learn about microorganisms like their adaptability to situations and being unicellular.

How: Ask your students to mould clay for microorganisms using items like plasticine, play dough and label their parts afterwards. After this task, display the items in the classroom while giving a chance to students to ask questions about the organism and answer them on a random basis.

Class 8th Project Two

What: Make a chart that would separate metals from non metals which is an important part of Chemistry.

Why: This would help students to know about all sorts of metals and non metals that are used by humans in this planet along with their uses.

How: Students could make a chart that would show the comparison of rare metals that are available at present (minimum 10 items) and non metals with the metals and non metals (minimum 10 items) that are available at plenty globally. To make it more interesting, students shall conduct a quiz where they could cross question themselves.

Science Project 3

What: To portray the history of fossil fuels using a timeline.

Why: Here we would be trying to know about fossil fuels like how they are formed, importance and uses, scarcity of these resources and the substitutes that could replace them.

How: Motivate students to design a graphical illustration of fossil fuel formation. This could be achieved by using paper cuttings and image collections having the description written below with a couple of sentences. After the completion of this project, you could conduct a discussion on the substitutes for fossil fuels and their merits for humans especially

Science Project 4 for 8th Class Student

What: To learn different types of natural events those are weather related (using group demonstrations).

Why: To know about different aspects of weather changes on our planet.

How: Split the class into different groups and name them after natural events like storm, cyclone etc. Let the students carry out some role play as natural phenomenon and show their harsh aspects and what to do to counter them. Students could discuss about the important natural events that happen in our country.

Science Project 5

What: Make a 3-d display model of an Animal cell.

Why: To understand the functions of an animal cell and how one unit cell in the multi cellular organism would function.

How: Let the students make a model of animal cell in a 3-d display format while labeling important parts of cells. Once the project is finished, the model shall be displayed to the school students to have a look at the work.

From the above discussion, you would have gained some idea on how the subject of science has been misconstrued as a complicated subject instead of it being a highly creative one. This has happened due to not applying creative projects that are easier to visualize and interactive that appeals to the students. Students can also go through their NCERT books if they are looking for small science projects. Hence it is advisable that students should be taught in a manner that engages their attention instead of following the conventional method of teaching.

Most people think that IIT JEE is very difficult examination. However, JEE is only a different examination.

One thing certain is IIT JEE requires a very systematic preparation. Earlier you start preparing for it the better.

JEE defers from conventional board exams in one major way. Tests your fundamentals of the subject and your ability to think logically and analytically.

To begin with, you must arrange for professional guidance, if you do not have one available at home. Secondly, practice of solving JEE level problems being of paramount importance, you must have access to enough recommended books / notes.

You may Like : Why Being An IIT’an Makes Difference


(1.) You can get join postal / classroom coaching.

(2.) You can try and get old postal coaching material from students who have appeared for JEE recently.

(3.) Buy or have access to various reference books for the subjects. (Lists are available on the net.)

Getting yourself motivated and keeping up the tempo is not easy. Load of HSC and JEE together can be very tough. So, if you are convinced read a lot about IITs, understand why you want to be in IIT and prepare for long, systematic preparations for it. I would recommend you should start preparing for JEE, immediately after Xth, if you have not started earlier!

The IITJEE is the Joint Entrance Examination conducted by the IITs for admission in the six IITs , ITBHU and ISM Dhanbad.

The IITJEE is aimed at selecting the best candidates from the country .It is considered the most competitive examination after 12th standard. About 2.5 % of the total students, appearing, are able to get through (entry ratio is even less than that of Stanford University!).

The entrance examination consists of :

The Main Examination of three separate papers in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry, each of two-hour duration, for those who qualify in the Screening Test. the mains in first week of april.

The general norm is that the JEE is a difficult examination and the questions are complex and tough. This is not true. It is merely a different exam. It examines your basic concepts, logical aspects and your ability to apply fundamentals to multi-conceptual problems. All it requires is a proper examination temperament and different approach to the subject than most of the other exams. Added to this, it also tests your ability to work efficiently without getting p
ressures in. It is also a test of your psychology. To solve the typical JEE like problems you have to think in many dimensions.

 

However, The question papers of JEE are most involved as compared to any other similar competitive examination. The process of formation of JEE papers is pretty complex. Questions are invited from various professors from different IITs. From this list, few questions are finalized, so the professor himself doesn’t know whether his question is there or not. All the possible solutions of questions are also made. The result of mains exam is declared in about 20 days from the day of examination.

To have optimum success in entrance & avoid failing one has to develop excellent examination temperament besides knowledge of the subject and problem solving skills.

What is needed for the IIT-JEE is :

An analytical mind and planned strategic approach.

Students with high IQ level can extract the information from the teacher even in a large group, plethora of books and study material available. Other students get confused due to flood of information and study material. One needs to have a definite plan with well defined helps and sources of information to produce optimum results. Students normally neglect Chemistry which is most scoring and do not pursue Physics in a proper way. Preparing Physics for the JEE needs more attention besides acquiring highly polished analytical skills. To help you with these things see all the topics of this site and I assure you that if they are probably followed , they will bring a big difference in your rank and hence life and career.

Hard work is indispensable for JEE:

If you are intelligent that’s good but intelligence alone is NOT going to get you in IIT or in AIEEE or in BITSAT. I have seen many people who are very intelligent and because of their intelligence they overestimate themselves and study less and end up getting a low rank in JEE. But I am not saying that any hard working person can make it to IIT. You need a certain degree of caliber but need not be a genius.

The second most important requirement is guidance. Hard work is bow, intelligence is arrow and guidance gives you the direction of target. Then only your arrow will hit JEE’s target.

Third thing is motivation. Nobody can force you to study for IIT. For working so hard for IIT you need a lot of motivation. Most (almost all) of the top rankers study for the whole two years single heartedly for JEE. For these 2 years they leave all their comforts for JEE. Like Arjun, you must only see JEE (the eye of bird) and nothing else

The fourth thing is Temperament. Temperament plays a vital role for success at IIT-JEE. Nervousness can decrease performance to such an effect that a student getting expected to get a top rank in JEE, fails to even qualify. Solving full papers, preferably in exam atmosphere can improve your temperament. Test series offered by some classes could be of help. If you do not have access to such series, try solving old papers with alarm set and correct it from solutions available.”

Interview With Another IITian

“Today compitation is very hard“–I have heared people saying so. Are they true . I don`t think so. when i thik honestly over it i found that really today comptation is not tough, but really the no. of compitants are big , that is other thing weather they are able 4 it or not.

Friends! Today i want to share myself after all of u. when i was a school going student of class 11th. and very true i also want to crack IIT. Really this is not my aim of life but it is one of the stoping station of my journey, the stopze of my journey will be with when i will be the richest man of the world.

We use to waste our precious time and energy over thinking that how to prepare 4 IIT and what should be the right stategy 4 it. This is really not the rule . What be the rule we have to be dedicated on it. But u may change in ur statgy as ur experience inreases. So just go and make a routine 4 study and be dedicated to it.

We go on a very simple thinking that ` `today the condition is not in my favour, i wail do that very thing tomorrow“. tomorrow goes on tomorrow and tomorrow and so on so on ……….! And one day we have to face our exams and we get dippressed, is not it? Well. We creat problems 4 ours. MOST OF THE PEOPLE REALLY WANT TO GET SUCCESS BUT THEY DON`T WANT TO WORK OR SPANT THEIR TIME. EDUCATION MEANS–THE PROGRAMME IN WHICH WE WASTE 1/4TH OF OUR LIFE TO KNOW THAT HOW TO WASTE OUR 3/4TH LIFE.

As hard as u work luck favours u so much. remember everyone have only 12 hrs to work , but in this 12 hrs one is BILL GATES and one is working under him.

Well i would like to tell everybody one thing that is extremely important to know while preparing for the IITs, and that is, if u think u r extremely good at school then it does not necessarily mean you are intelligent or brainy and end up having high hopes that u can get into any one of the IITs.

The reason is very simple, at school u don?t need brains to do well in your exams, u need lots of memory and hours of hardcore mugging! But at a place like IIT – JEE, its insane to even think u can mug, because the syllabus is designed for people who can think!

I have seen people who have scored around 65% – 70% in their boards, but end up with very good IIT – JEE ranks at the end. So now I hope u can differentiate between true intelligence and true ?mug – pots?

According to me no bloody school exam can ever judge the true intelligence of a student, but at IIT it shows it all! At school all of us mug our heads off and the better the mugging the more intelligent we all seem to the teacher?s and parent?s eyes!

True intelligence can be found and discovered only at the IIT – JEE, so why not prove yourself there, rather than waste time mugging and falling under the illusion that u r intelligent, genius etc:- after seeing your class scores!

So the bottom line of the above text is.. Stop putting IIT – JEE and your ?performance in school? in the same side of the coin, ?cos if u do.. you would be committing the biggest blunder of your life.

IIT is always a word which rises a energy through the body. But to achieve it you have to drain out the entire energy out of your body. Preparing for IIT is not a week or month job. It needs years of effort.From 11th onwards the whole ?energy? has to be squezed out.

A proper oranization is always the primary task for all preparation.

1.) Make yourself a week plan and a month plan before you work.

Never put down all your awake time in studies. Effiecency is the primary target. Divide the day into 4 – 6 sections of 2-3 hours. For every successful period take a 15-30 minutes reward. It boosts your energy.

2.) Regular exercise is always a must. allocate about 30 minutes of the day for this.

You can choose ?exercise time? during the time you feel sleepy or fed-up.

3.) Do a subject continously for a long period. Each time you change the subject you lose a lot of time. (transition time is a lot
on thinking) .

4.) Crash your leisure programmes when you don?t go on plan then make a better plan for next week

5.) Write in black n white the portions covered and try to match it with the plan.

6.) A sleep of 5.5 hr is a must!!!!

7.) During the ?Hike? of tension cool youself by meditating or by jst running arround!!

Studying Methods

1.) Regularly solve model papers and keep checking the time. This enhance confidence and shows the pons and cons of ur studies.

2.) Be up to date. All HW must be done in time.

3.) make yourself comprehensive notes and small skecthes. (make them attractive)

4.) Be perfect in solving maths problems. Never make a situation that will make u revise back through it. The best way I adopted was from my teacher. ??Enjoy Maths!!?? and do it when you are totally freacked out. On doing problems during ?freaking? time you intially tend to make mistakes. But this soon will be a boon when you get freaked out during exams. You will be ready to move through even when u r freaked. ( this was my success key for 100 in maths exams.)

5.) Be prepared with all type of questions.

6.) Go through guides daily. In the last moment u won?t be able to do it.

ANOTHER IITian’s view:

Here goes one more article for SUCCESSFULL PREPARATION FOR IIT JEE . If you are sure the way you are preparing is quite OK for you. DONT READ BEYOND THIS.

But if you think you need guidence just read this and ponder over it for a while and then set into action right away!

Let me 1st tell you something abt myself. I was preparing for IIT JEE 2006 for the pst one and a half year. And during this period i?ve oserved that the only thing required for a meaningful preparation is to have a BURNING DESIRE to excell. This is fortunately the only requirement or eligiblity, what ever you call it. And belive me this is not easy. In todays world there are so many other IMPORTANT things, like Surfing, Dating, Music, Movies, Food…. Hai na? Keep your Eyes SHUT for them. Wear blinkers to the outside world if required. Guests who are well wisher of yours, would never expect you to come and socialise with them when ever they visit your place. I Hate GUESTS. We are taught, ?ATITHI DEVO BHAWAH? But I would rather feel the world better without them.

Good Planning is a great virtue. From This Date, only 8 months are left. Leave 2months for REVISION AND SELF ASSESSMENT TESTs. So you have at the most 6 months for preparation. If you havent started yet, This is high time 4 you to do so. Don?t worry. Belive in yourself. Daily study for 12 hrs ( Sincerly ) and you get through it. Concentrate only on the Basics. Though I strongly belive to study from books according to my power of perception and understanding, at least from my average level of brain, I can suggest you the following books if you share the same understandning power.

Maths : Asit Das gupta prasad for IIT, ML Khanna

Physics : H.C verma ( Vol I and II ) is enough. If not you can add 3000 solved problems in physics ( Mcgraw Hill Publication )

Chemistry : G.D. Mishra, P Bhadur or R.C. mukharjee.

The Only Thing I say abt. books is decide once and stick to it unless you are thru it throughly. Never flicker amoung books you will ruin you time that way.

Don’t pray to god to get you thru the gateway of IIT, pray only to help you to keep the desire to excell burning withn you , pray not to let your mind deviate from the path you’ve once decided. Rest your hard work will make you achieve your cherished ambition and you be prevaileged to be called with those wonderfull words i.e. IITian.

I wanted to write more but since the time does’t permitts. So off i go. One thing i would like to add is Internet the BEST source to kill time so go wath out the time you spend over it.

People who are really intrested for a chat or talk over the topic of preparing for IIT JEE can mail me atrahul5mishra@yahoo.com or call me (0657) 2303851, 2142117.

So with all your honest and determination rush to your study table YOUR TIME STARTS NOW !!! “

Last Sec Tips:

1.) Never start studying during the last month.

2.) keep covering pages at a fast pace

3.) Question yourself where you feel you are doubtful.

4.) Never leave calculations. Keep doing always. Once you stop your marks stops!!

5.) Have confidence

Always be cool and smooth. Never let tenion eat you u up. Aske the parents to keep an eye on yu always. Otherwise you may not be studying always.

Be motivated, encouraged and struggle.

It is afterall not a miserable fight.
