Now that we are done with the Achievers Workshops there is more breathing space to do some writing that captures the essence of the closing session that I took at the NAW. The IIM interview season has already started and aspirants would be trying to get as many insights as they can right from how […]

WAT-GD-PI

I have put together a compilation of articles on various topics of interest that might turn up in this year’s WAT-GD-PI season. Don’t speed-read these articles and make notes solely from a point of view of WAT-GD, as if you were preparing essay type answers on topics for a test in school. The narrower you go, the deeper the hole you dig yourself into.

Now that the results are out, most students are scrambling to get every ounce of GK or Current Affairs they can into their system. I keep joking that if I could administer an injection, I would have. But since that is not possible, what I have done is put together a list of different articles that might make useful reading, as well as a compilation of institute-specific processes and topics from previous years. The articles […]

B-School Selection / CAT / WAT-GD-PI

Dear CAT 2016 Achievers, Like we did last year, we have created a folder with articles curated to cover topics that might pop in this year’s WAT-GD-PIs. The articles are not easy reads by far since they are from sources such as EPW and McKinsey. More than trying to agree or disagree with the views expressed, it would be best to look at them to get a more diverse set of examples and also incorporate view […]

Over the past four weeks I have been extremely tied-up doing WAT-GD-PI sessions for our students here in Chennai, which explains why the posts have become sporadic. Now that we are done with the Achievers Workshop here in Chennai there is more breathing space to do some writing.

Now that the calls have come out, most aspirants are worried about the crucial next stage — WAT-GD-PI. Writing an essay can be daunting, especially so, if you are not a regular follower of news and current affairs and then there is the recurrent fear — What if I do not know anything about the topic? Well that odds of that happening depend upon the width of your reading. The wider you cast the net the higher the […]

The results of a few IIMs are out and most aspirants would be eager to know what usually happens in the second stage. What are kind of topics that are posed by each institute?
