Thanks for starting this thread.
Can we also start a profile eval thread for class of 2021 so that we know which areas of the profile need attention & how we can start working on them.

Thanks,

all : PGPX Webinars are starting from 9th June onwards. I would recommend all of you to register and attend these online webinars to get an idea about the PGPX program at IIMA and ask your questions. For people who live near the Information Seminar locations you can visit the onsite information seminars in person as well. All the best.

Since I have been receiving some queries regarding Profile evaluation , here are my 2 cents for all.
1)There is no Ideal Profile to target. Each profile is unique.
2)GMAT is not a deal maker or deal breaker. Having said that going by past trends , a GMAT score of 680 and above is generally safe to get an interview call. People have made it with as low as 600-620 as well but the chances decrease as you go towards 600.
2)Be honest in what you write in your application. You have to defend this later in your interview :-)
3)Focus on leadership attributes in your work description section in the application. As you will learn later at IIM A , Leadership is about taking initiatives and has nothing to do with your job designation :-)
4)Use bullet points for your job description
5)Extracurricular activities are not deal breakers. If you do not have anything significant do not worry.
6)Start reading current affairs. You will need it during the extempore in the interview.
7)Think about how you can connect your past experience , MBA learning and post mba goals together
Good Luck !

Does PGPX program in IIM asks for current situations?
Is it very similar to the interview for 2 year PGP program.

No they generally do not ask direct current affair questions. The extempore topics will be more abstract e.g. "Industrialization at the cost of human rights , discuss".
Once you take a stance and start speaking on this topic , you might need some current affair scenario on this line to substantiate your claim Or the professor will pick something to cross question you. So being a little bit aware of what is going around helps.
PGP Interview is different. There is no GD in PGPX interview.

A does not ask for recommendation letters.
They only ask for names of 3 references at a later stage whom they might contact if required.
