17 : 15 hrs – Here is a piece of advice from that you should definitely read if you have not performed in CAT this year –

I have yet again screwed up CAT this year, what should I do?

I got overall 98.2 percentile in cat 2015. Sounds nice.
99.93 Percentile in VA ( I am an engineer, isn’t that awesome?)
96 percentile in QA (cool isn’t it?)
This is what you might have wanted for yourself, isn’t it?
But I’ll Not receive a SINGLE CALL from any IIM. Why?
Because of this:
79.6 Percentile – DI LR
Now I missed colleges because of Just a question I should not have attempted. I have decent extracurricular and would have converted at least some of the colleges. I have a job offer from a sector I never wanted to work for.
My parents are happy as they think I’ll get calls from IIMs.
But am I sad?
NO, because I know life will never be fair, I might have been unlucky or LUCKY but only time will tell.
This is not the end of my life, I have some unspent fuel and I’ll prove it with time.
Buddy, a failure will never define you and if you let it stop you from dreaming, you don’t deserve to be successful. Dream on, play on and life always has something better in store, let it unfold. Give it another try or Go for GMAT and ISB.
Though I feel sad for my Parents 🙁  (And I can’t show off my philosophy knowledge to them. ) 😛
