I am unable to give gmat before September for work related reason. Planning to give it on 8th October.
In the application form of this course, following line is mentioned

GMAT - Graduate Management Admissions Test (taken within last 36 months)
GMAT programme code for PGPEX is 9CP-HT-99. This score must be sent to IIM Calcutta through Pearson VUE within the application deadline.

Does this mean:

1. I have to select the course for reporting the score on GMAT day and if i do not select, then the score i write in application form become invalid
2. The official report card is sent 20 days after the test. So, technically my scorecard will not be sent before the deadline

Now I was under the impression that one can apply with unofficial GMAT score..
Someone please clarify.



Hey Gaurav!Please be assured that you can submit your application with unofficial score also. Just ensure that you take the GMAT before 25th October 2016 and you should be fine. Please refer to the FAQ section on application website for further clarification.

Hi,

I will have nearly 16 years of IT experience in a top MNC which would also include 5+ years of international experience by Apr 2018 when the next batch of PGPEX starts. Based on current batch profiles, can someone tell if this will be more than the usual experience for PGPEX and is there any cap on maximum experience in IIM-C ? Also, with the above experience profile, what sort of a GMAT score would I need ?..Thanks



Hi, there is no such limitation on the maximum exp in the IIMC-PGPEX programme. This year we have candidates with 12 years of exp, so I would encourage you to apply. Also, there is no cut-off on the GMAT score as well.

Can we initiate referee mail request from your application portal, So we don't have to wait for the whole application to be completed before the referee can start.
If yes, then
How to initiate referee mail ? I have saved the details of two referees . There is no button to initate the mail to referees . Can't we send the referral links to referees before submitting the final appliation with paymen?? Can you please let me know what to do next ?

Hello

This is Alok
Indian
My life can be divided into 2 parts pre 2010 & post 2010

post 2010
GMAT 750(Q51 V39)
Total 6.5 years exp --> 4.5 years at job + 2 years entrepreneurship (Coaching Institute)
Currently working as Senior Design Engineer (Domain expert in metro trains & High speed trains) (R&D of automobile & transportation products)

Pre 2010
But my past is not that great
10th - 84%
12th - 49%
BTECH - 6.3 CGPA in Mechanical

Apart from this I have worked for relief flood victim in 2005, 2014 & 2015 ( we are a group of friends & some locals)
I have won awards in singing, Cricket, Badminton
I work for 2 NGOs (one for blind child & another for children education)
I have won at least 12 awards during my job
I have some designs which are now implemented metro trains in India
Also some patents I have as a team
Have experience in B2B sales with success rate of 100% (1/1)

How should I rate my chance of getting admission to any of these courses
IIM Ahmedabad PGPX Applicants:(2017 Intake) Class of 2018!
IIM Bangalore EPGP 9 Aspirants (Class of 2017 - 18)
IIM Calcutta PGPEX Applicants:(2017 Intake) Class of 2018

Regards
Alok


Dear Alok,

Thanks for reaching out. You have good work experience, valuable extra-curricular activities and a very good GMAT score. You can be a good potential candidate for IIM Calcutta PGPEX. The only problem I see is your 12th marks. You need to portray your work experience and extra-curricular activities well to compensate for the 12th and B-Tech marks.

Cheers
Umang

Hello all prospective applicants. I am a current student of IIM C PGPEX and would be glad to answer any questions regarding the program that you might have !!


Hello Soham,

Need some advise from you on the below queries:

1. the website mentions 5 yrs work experience as on March, 31st, 2017. However, I will fall short by 1.5 months in terms of work experience. Will this be fine?
2. I gave GMAT and scored 640. Is this score sufficient for application.

Regards.

Dear Rajesh,
I would encourage you to apply. The lack of international experience and extra curricular achievements is compensated by your CSR work exp. Moreover you have a balanced profile with a healthy work exp but average GMAT. Since GMAT isn't the sole criteria of selection you could maximse your chances of conversion by a good interview round.

The deadline is still 20 days away, so I would recommend you to polish your essays so that they convey your aspirations and present work exp in a crisp and clear manner. For more information you could register for the second webinar below. Hope it helps!

Hi,

I am planning to apply to IIMC this year. However, the website says 5 years of work experience as on 31st Mar, 2017. However, i am short of 1 month work experience. (I will be completing 5 years in May, 2017). Please advise, if i should apply. I gave GMAT and scored 640. Also, it will be a great help, if you can help me connect to someone in the adcom, since I am unable to reach them.

Regards.

Hi, I'm sorry to say that in that case you aren't eligible to apply this year. I'd advise you to retake the GMAT and apply with a stronger profile next year.

Dear PGPEX alums,
I have a question regarding 2017-18 SOP- it mentions that "Please write in 300 to 500 words or upload a file below" - Does this mean the I can upload a file having more than 500 words or is the word limit for file as well ?

Second question is - Do I need to write SOP in the order of question asked, like objective first, then achievement and then goal -- or can it be in order I want to convey ?

Appreciate your quick response.

Thanks
Manish Mrigank

Hello Threadmasters !
Appreciate your efforts for providing a platform for aspirants to ask their queries.

I am 29 Indian Female working for an Indian IT company with 7 years of experience. I am currently working for an insurance major in North America as a part of an assignment as IT Business Analyst. I additionally have another year of international work experience in a similar role for a banking client. I have a not so stellar GMAT score of 670 - Q49 V 33 and my long term goals are getting into either consulting or strategy.
So, basically I belong to the traditional IT pool category with a low GMAT score .

Do I stand a chance ? Considering the close deadline, I cant go for a retake , however I do intend a retake of the GMAT by Nov end.

Kindly suggest.
