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.

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.
