Tips for Admissions in B-school And Real IIM GD Topics
IIM Lucknow's post-CAT selection process consists of three parts:
1. Written ability test (of 15 minutes duration)
2. Group discussion (on a given topic for 20 minutes)
3. Personal interview
Last year, the process began with the written ability test, which is typically an essay-writing exercise. Over the past three years, the topics for this test have been one line abstract topics and the time allotted for this is 15 minutes.
Evaluation of the essay is done on the parameters of perspective and communication. This is followed by a group discussion on the same topic. The maximum time allotted for the GD is 20 minutes.

MBAs are High in Demand but Low in Supply
Engineering graduate Hitesh Agarwal has been preparing for CAT 2009. He shares with rediff.com his expereinces and also reveals his learning experiences from the previous attempt.
Could you tell us something about yourself and your educational background?
I graduated in Engineering (IT) and briefly worked with Accenture before deciding that I wanted to focus entirely on my CAT preparations. My brother who is also an engineer worked for three years at Tech Mahindra [ Get Quote ] before joining Xavier Labour Relations Institute (XLRI). I have also decided to follow his example and join a B-school.
How has graduating in Engineering helped in preparing for CAT?
As an engineering student, I have always been in touch with Mathematics. Engineering also helps a lot in the quant and logic sections. And since we make presentations through the year, we are also quite reasonable when it comes to approaching the verbal section.
