Top B-School call is a big challenge Hridesh Madaan, Head-North, Bulls Eye said that in last 2-3 years, interview calls from IIMs and other top B-Schools has become tough as compared to previous year. There are 2 reasons to it: First, IIM started giving profile based interview calls from last year. For instance, a student got shortlisted in one of the IIMs as per his academic performance and work experience. Second, GDs has been removed from admission process. Instead Essay writing is new addition to the process which is different and difficult skill.
Students should apply in time Akash Gautam, Trainer & Motivator for CAT Aspirants, said that students should not ignore the importance of admission process of top business schools, otherwise they would be losers. They should start applying to the B-Schools before the cutoff dates. He also said that despite of technical glitches in 2009, CAT is still an entry door to the best Business schools of the country.
