Ans. I took GD/PI at NMIMS, SIBM, and XIMB. I cleared NM and also SIBM. I chose NMIMS as it is better rated compared to SIBM. I screwed up in XIMB in GD though it was my first choice among the 3 colleges, especially because in GDs, I was not able to raise my voice when everyone else started shouting.
Ans. Personal interview was pretty straight. More on, I had CV based questions and how I handled things as a team lead. I was able to handle it very decently. They were impressed with my activities in school and during B.Tech. They asked some questions about my NCC activities as well.

Ans. I took Mock tests from TIME. I had earlier attended coaching classes from time, Hyderabad. But I did not find it so useful, especially in case of English (Reading Comprehension and Vocabulary) they have totally screwed it up. I do not recommend any one to attend these classes. It wastes a lot of time, but still does not give us meaningful result.
Ans. I used to spend 2 hours in the mornings. I was lucky that I used to wake up early in the morning since childhood. I used to read from 6am to 8am and then get ready by 9am and reach office by 10am. So, those 2hrs were enough for me on weekdays. On the weekends, I used to spend 5-6 hours.

Ans. My weakest area was English, especially Reading Comprehension. I started reading thoroughly on areas that I was least acquainted with such as archaeology, game theory, humanities, etc. This helped me in gaining confidence. I used to break down long sentences into short sentences and eliminated the dependent parts. This helped me to an extent. I also increased my vocabulary, which helped in getting the tone of the passages well.
Ans. I just read all the time books for quant and LR sections. I was able to do them very well. Add to it, discussion with friends really helped me in these 2 sections. So, never thought further to again work on these sections.
