Hi Mohit,

You have mentioned very limited information on your experience to answer if you are at par with fellow applicants. One quick thing that you should do is go through the website, look at the class average and judge on where you stand. Also start planning on how you can stand out from the crowd through your application.
You cannot reapply in R2, if you have applied in R1.
Scheduling your GMAT is purely your call. If you can simultaneously work on your application, you can schedule it for a later date, else do it at the earliest and give yourself enough time to work on the application. It also depends on how prepared you are for the 4 hr GMAT exam.

PM for further queries.

Regards,
Tridisha

Candidates who failed to get in round 1, can they re apply in round 2 ?
I have 8.5 years of experience in IT domain of a Government Bank, is it good enough ?

Hi,

Most of your questions have been answered in the IIM B thread and the answers remain same even for IIM A. For question 2)
IIM A will contact that person (here, your manager) at a later date if necessary. IIM A does not ask for referrals and will also not contact your manager now/during the application process

Regards,
Tridisha

Please help me with the following queries:

1. Since the deadline is 27th August'19, does the admission committee start evaluating the applications after the deadline or in between? (i.e. does it make a difference if I submit my app on either one of the dates - 15th July or 15th August?)

2. Does the section 'Name of the person you reported to' asking for contact details used in place of referrals? <I was hoping to keep my plans from my manager>

3. What should be uploaded against the option for 'GMAT Scoresheet'? Is it the official score report by Pearson?

4. By when should one send the GMAT scores via Pearson to the school?

Thanks.

Yes we do have every year a couple of people in that work experience range. However you have to be very clear about the why MBA question and convince the Profs in the interview to get an admit.

Hi,

Just wished to check what kind of roles are offered for people aiming to get into Fintech and the companies that recruit in this area?

We have a fairly good number of fintech companies visiting campus and offering a variety of roles. Linkedin profiles of past couple of batches will give you a good idea. I cannot get into more details due to non disclosure policy but will be happy to share in depth details to the admits at a later point of time.

Hello all, Glad to see activity already started for the IIMA PGPX 2021 class admit.
I am an alum from the 2016~17 batch and quite active across the forums like GMATClub, PagalGuy and you might also see me in the information seminars in Bengaluru. Please do reach out here or elsewhere in case of any clarifications.
My id is x16aniruddha@iima.ac.in.
Please note: Profile evaluations are generally a waste of time, dont bother asking anyone to evaluate your profile.

Hi all,

Glad to see the thread. It ringed nostalgia bells. I was on the other side of the table last year. I applied to IIM A/B/C last year and got through them.

I am currently pursuing PGPX in IIM-A. A few of you have interacted with me during various webinars organized by the college.

I will be happy to help you all during the admission process so please feel free to reach out. And as our senior aniruddhams mentioned, profile evaluation is a time waste since everyone is unique and every year has a different batch composition.

Let's get started.

Thanks.

I've read on the institute's website that the average work-ex for PGPX students is around 10 years. I'll have a work ex of almost 5 years by March 2020. Do I stand to lose points because of my low work-ex?

The average work ex of our current batch is 8 years and 9 months. The youngest person has around 4.5 years work ex. There is a uniform mix of low , medium and high work ex people. So do not worry, you will not loose any points. There will be representation from each work experience category. All you need to do is outshine your peer group of low work ex people during the selection process.

I am not aware of any WhatsApp group but we are organizing a lot of IIM chat sessions with current students. You have a great chance to meet some of the fellow applicants in those chats.

Check the following links and sign up for those chats
