Personal Interview Skills

January 5th, 2021 by

In this post I would like to cover some of the basic ideas about personal interviews. Since brevity is the soul of wit, and tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes, I will try to be brief. Whom do the interviewers select? The candidate they “like” – so your job is to be “liked” by the panel. Attributes that normal panels like: Honesty Be ruthlessly honest with your answers You should know your subject You should understand your immediate environ Your answering should demonstrate analysis Listen to the words and the body language Answer the question asked Pane

You have put in the months towards the preparation and I am sure you will come out with flying colors. I know it sounds obvious but there is no harm in repeating – it is just an exam. It does not define who you are and will have a marginal impact on your career in the long run. CAT is a standardized test and perhaps one of the best tests in the Indian education system to select the best candidates. It has been going on for decades and has always rewarded students who are


Days Before CAT Exam !!!

November 24th, 2020 by

Dear Students, The most neglected thing during the exam days is to be normal. I know it is easier said than done. For the days before and during the exam, life should be as normal as possible. A clear head is important for taking the exam efficiently. Do you believe that you can tramp the last mile? What is your response? -          ‘I am doing great ; bring on the CAT’ -          ‘I am doing great, but I hope I don’t stumble now’ -          ‘Man! I am sure I can crack the CAT. If only Math would stop killing me’ -

Important Idioms and Phrases for CAT and other exams

November 6th, 2020 by

Let’s start with the basic question - what exactly is the difference between an idiom and proverb? Are they the same? If you say, “at loggerheads” instead of “strong disagreement among people,” you're using an idiom. The meaning of an idiom is different from the actual meaning of the words used. “Make hay while the sun shines” is a proverb. Proverbs are old but familiar sayings that usually give advice. A phrase is just a group of words. If you know the meaning of the individual words in a phrase, you know the meaning it conveys. But in an idiom, the meaning is not c
