sorry for the late post . Net not working and...
short story of my exam day :
earlier night saw italy losing to spain ..
then slept at 3 o clock in night
woke up at 9:30
my slot was 1:00
reached centre at 12:00
test started before scheduled time ...
awa was cool
my argument topic was ...
" Largo company which sells pianos earlier used to sell digital pianos carefully hanidcrafted.....used by leading concert pianist . The official from Largo pianist company states that the allegro piano company which has started selleing inexpensive pianos and hence reduced the Largo profit .... so the Largo should launch a new series of pianos with a broad price range .This will help the Largo company increase its sales as well as outsell allegro . This will also help to attract the earlier customers since they will attach themselves to the name of Largo ."
neede to analyse ths argument --- not a very diffcult one ....wrote around 6 paragraphs pasage ...used the structure described .
The issue was " Businesses and organizations todays have overemphasized the importance of team in the todays working environment , while it is the individual who carries out most of the work ..."
not much difficulty in writing the importance of a team...gave some examples too .
expecting around 5 in AWA .
then had a break of 10 min .....then came maths..was doing well...encountered some good DS q , didn't guessed much ..but faced difficulty in some questions and was not sure about them . The last q was the most difficult , Was a DS involving some error calculations , the error percentage given by 100|e-a| / a and was given the Total revenue and revenue from a single product and required to tell that the actual revenue was atleat 20 % withing the range of estimated one .
Encountered 2 questions in maths which i have already seen .
Then came english , had a break of 10 min..went for loo...
started with SC , Sc , Sc CR CR CR RC .....initially i gave more time to q but then the tie started runnign tension started building up ,, rushed thru a passage , that hit my confidence . then after around 30 min felt the need to go to pee ... but had a tight situation relative to number of q left ....so tried to control myself ..and went on....i think this hitted me in some q .....ended the question..saw the score....
710 , 50 ,35
was astonished....this was my second attempt..prepared for 3 months...did some things wrong but not much..was expecting +20 .... +30 think that pee hitted me...hmm ...710..not bad...ut not good too...
need some advise guys for application process...can you point me to some useful threads... ?
Suggestionas and feedbacks welcome...
one more thing..saw two or three q in maths and a passage in RC which i believe have seen during practise....was it luck..or it happens...?
