Hi..
My questions are
1) What is the average age of the applicants for PGPX ?
2) I have 9 years of WE, which is a bettert place for me-- IIMs or ISB ?

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.

I have 4 years of work ex. Will my lesser work experience go against my candidature?

No, it won't. There are quite a few candidates with 4 years of experience in the batch (that is the minimum experience criteria for admission). So, a lower experience doesn't hurt you really. What matters is the quality of experience and how you are able to justify the reason for doing an MBA in your application and essays. Also, people with lower experience are expected to have a higher GMAT, unless of course you are from a niche background

Hi Guys,
Is there a whatsapp group for people who are applying to IIM A to connect and share ?

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?

Can we create one whatsapp group for applicant. We can have few current students as well in the group to help us.

Hi,

Can someone please suggest why contact details of reporting manager are required? Not completely comfortable sharing this information.

Also, today I have asked Pearson to share my GMAT scorecard with PGPX Admission team. Score will be delivered to IIM A by 10th. Hope that won't be late. Please suggest if I need to request Pearson to get it delivered asap.

So that the school can verify if what you are stating about your work experience and achievements are true. Mainly for checks and balances.
10th should be fine. Worked last year.

Hello Guys,

Do we have to submit resume in PGPX application? I do not see anything being mentioned for resume in the application. Or do we have to upload in the relevant documents section in employment tab?

Also, what about the achievements certificates? would it affect candidature if we do not upload?

It was mentioned in one of the webinar that only education related credentials need to be uploaded at the time of application. Work related documents will be verified at the time of interview. Can anyone from PGPX reconfirm about this?

Also do we need to submit acheivement certificates at this time?

Hey ruwithrdx,

Does the school check with the reporting manager during the interview process or after the applicant is admitted?

If its the former then it is not at all good from an applicant's perspective. The candidate can potentially be fired if the company get to know this info

Hey - If there is a demand, i will create a group on TELEGRAM just to keep this conversation separate from personal chats. Let me create one and then I will ask all of you to join
