Mukesh Goyal: Chandigarh
Chandigarh has given us a number of CAT toppers and this is the fourth time that a management aspirant from Chandigarh has secured the first place in India in CAT. Mukesh Goyal, currently employed on Gurugram, has been managing work and studies. According to him, it is the persistence, continuous practice and motivation that make a difference. Even through his busy schedule, Mukesh ensured that he took time out to take as many mock tests as possible during the weekends and analyse them to understand the areas that turned out to be his strengths and sections of improvement.
“Stay Motivated and Practice Continuously”
Gorla Vineeth: Chennai
With 99.99 percentile in CAT 2016, this IIT has taken forward the tradition of engineers being the top scorers. The distribution of scores in different sections has been responsible for affecting this candidate’s score and bringing it down to 99.99 percentile. He says that he has been preparing himself through rigorous practice and concept evaluation for 100 percentile but he ended up putting in too much time on a single question. This is the reason why he missed being the cent percent achiever. He suggests that in addition to regular practice and learning short cuts, it is also important to manage time effectively.
“Time management, concept evaluation and tricks is all what it takes to be a top scorer”
Avidipto Chakraborty: Kolkata
Another 100-percentile scorer, who hails from the city filled with sweetness made it clear that it takes only dedication to surpass all the obstacles. In his first attempt itself, he swept the CAT entrance with the perfect score. With the dream of being an entrepreneur, this BITS-Pilani student seems to have it all. Even before his achievement in CAT, he has an offer from McKinsey & Company and he might go for deferred admission policy in order to continue with his dream. Avidipto has been making the best of his weekends and under his self-study schedule, he used the two days to solve mock papers. He says that solving 86 mock tests through his preparation helped him gain confidence and understanding of the paper format.
“ Pledge for self-study and take mock tests to gain confidence for the D-day”
So, as you can make out, all the three toppers consider mock tests to play an integral role in preparing one for the entrance exam. In order to secure admission to one of the IIMs, it is important that you stick to your schedule, manage time, practice and give it your best. As the toppers say, it is all in your hands and you can make yourself a winner by staying motivated. We suggest that you take your gear out and get ready to enrol yourself in one of the top B-schools of India by integrating the approach followed by the toppers.
