Art Is A Four Letter Word – WAT Wednesdays
Welcome to Week 1 of WAT Wednesdays!
Most of the b-schools including our very own IIMs have scrapped the process of GD and are just going to short list final converts based on WAT-PI rounds. Also, some exams, like XAT, have WAT as a part of the test itself. So, in order to help you prepare for it better – we, at InsideIIM, have launched a new series – WAT Wednesdays!
This week’s topic is – ‘Art is a four letter word’. Many a time, b-schools give a topic as abstract as this one to know how the candidate’s abstract reasoning and the ability to find connections where there are none. The key to answering such topics lies within what you know, what you think, what you believe and what you feel about something. And maybe sometimes, it goes beyond what you really know. It’s easy to talk about something like demonetization when the whole country goes on about it. You’ll write about what you’ve heard of and could write about other people’s opinions, but a topic like this would force you to write about what YOU think/feel/know.
So put on your thinking caps and answer this to the best of your ability. So what does this mean to you?
This is how it will work:
1) Users can post their essays in the comments section below by logging in through their www.insideiim.com User id.
2) You can write your essay on the topic for the entire week. You can even challenge your friends and make it more interesting!
3) The thread will be moderated by Team InsideIIM to ensure the discussion is kept relevant and is not abusive.
4) On Saturday, experts and industry professionals at InsideIIM (all ex-IIM, XLRI, MICA only) will rate each essay on the thread on the scale of 10 with some guidance.
This exercise may not replace the practice that you may need daily to master WAT but it will definitely help you to shape your line of thought. We will ensure that if you go through these next few weeks with us on this thread you will markedly improve your content. Hopefully, there will be more substance when you actually write an essay/WAT after going through this exercise.
