Hi Palls20,

In addition to the statement of purpose, you need to write the following essays.

1) Give detailed descriptions of three activities you performed in your workplace in the last five years which will help us assess your abilities and strengths. Use extra sheets if necessary.

2) Narrate an important/unusual incident of your life when you had to face a very demanding/challenging situation. How did you overcome the situation? What lessons did you learn from this incident? Use extra sheets if necessary.

Re-applicants need to write one more essay. What are the changes in your profile vis-à-vis previous year’s?

If required, you can also write an optional essay to highlight anything else you would like in support of your application.

You can find more details on their website. http://programslive.iimcal.ac.in/pgpex

You need to fill the application online and submit before Aug 31.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any more information.

Hi Guys ,

My GMAT score is 680 (Q48,V35)
10th - 84%
12th - 82.2 %
Engg in Comp Sc - 76.3 %
Work Ex - 5 years ( 2 years in UK)
IT background

Should I be even thinking of applying for IIM-C???? I dont think I want to take my GMAT again now as 680 is sort of hanging in the balance b/n an average score and a good score.

Please advise.

Thanks a ton vinayupa for the reply.
If you don't mind, can you also please post the questions needed for IIM B 1 year program?
I can't find an IIMB thread, hence posting the question here.

Thanks much in advance.

Hi Lifzgud,

The average GMAT score for PGPEX program in 705 for current batch. However, i think that the B-schools have an holistic approach while evaluating the application. They look at your your work experience, extra curricular etc....So i would suggest that do not think only about your GMAT score...you may have something to balance. At the same time, i would also say that a higher GMAT score is always an advantage.

There is a running thread on Pagalguy regarding PGPEX program. You may follow that as well.
Thanks

I agree but for IIM C, its not the case. IIM C is totally GMAT focussed. You can check the previous threads of IIM C.

Consider Kudos If my post helps!!!

Archit, It's not true that IIMC PGPEX is totally GMAT focused. That is more correct about IIMA & ISB. As i mentioned, they look at your entire profile. GMAT score is a part of it.
