Hi,

Till now I have worked in three different roles in my current organisation. Do I need it to mention all the three roles or just my current role? Similarly responsibilities and accomplishments I need to mention only for the current role or all the three roles of my current organisation?

There are few awards/prizes for which I don't have any tangible certificate. Is there any point mentioning them in the application? Will Bonafide certificate from college hold any value?

1. I'm not sure regarding your question for roles and responsibilities. Let me get back to you on this
2. I think awards and prizes for which you have tangible certificates should be mentioned. Thats the only way a college can check the authenticity and validity of the award
3. What do you want to prove with your bonafide certificate? can you explain this question in other words?

I meant can we put a Bonafide certificate if actual certificate is not there.

Hey GoodGuy

I think if you have a college degree then you dont need a bonafide certificate. Are you saying that you misplaced your college degree? If yes, then i think you should write to IIM A asap and ask them if a bonafide certificate will work instead

Thanks Goodguy for raising the question around roles and responsibilities. Even I have the same question on how do we cover all our roles in the same organization within 1000 characters limit. In the international experience tab, they mention that the experiences you mention here must also be present in the roles and responsibilities section.

Hello,


I am from the PGPX 16~17 batch and have been fairly active in Pagalguy over the years, in order to help aspirants clear any doubts they may have with admission. Please shoot away any questions you have, either on this post (if you think it will help the larger community) or message me for something private.

I do not respond to requests for profile review. It does not add any value to anybody, in my opinion. The GMAT range in my class was from 640 to 760, if this information is comforting to some of you.


My profile:


Currently head Manufacturing at Ather Energy


Close to 9 years till now in the Manufacturing Sector. Had 7 years incoming into PGPX. Work ex primarily in Automotive and aerospace sectors.


B.E in Mech Engg from BIT, Bangalore and M.E in Manufacturing from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.


GMAT 710, decent acads

hey,

No, i dont think there is a whatsapp group. I didn't create because there are few participants.

Either ways, can you tell what is your query?

I am a current student at PGPX, IIMA.

Average age for IIM is around 31 years. IIM is definitely the right place for you as:-
i) ISB prefers younger applicants and most of the class would be much younger
ii) The level of peer learning that you get here at IIMA is mainly because of the rich experience of the participants. This would be hampered if participants were much younger.


For more clarity, watch the following videos by the current students at IIMA PGPX on

1)The diversity of applicants at IIMA PGPX:-

2)Preparation to get into IIMA PGPX:-
Part I:

Part II:-

Hey guys, I am a law graduate with around 7 years of experience in litigation and in mid level management in a KPO which deals in legal process outsourcing. I have 1 year of international experience where I worked at an international law firm. I am 32 years old.

I was planning to start preparing for GMAT soon and apply for R2 later in the year. Just wanted to know if I can appear for the exam anytime before the last date of application submission ends or is there a specific date by which I should appear?

Also, what score should I target? I am guessing a 700?

Many thanks!

Yes, you can apply for the exam any time before the last date as long as your scores are available for submission on the last date.
If you want tips on preparation, you can watch the following videos where PGPX students of the current batch share how they prepared for admission to the program (from GMAT to interview):-
Part I:-
https://youtu.be/feQZz02xZnE

Part II:-
