Meet Suvam Dhar, IIFT 99.83%iler. Suvam got interested in MBA during his final placement season at engineering college. Without much preparation and time, Suvam prepared for CAT amidst prep for other exams. When CAT didn’t go well for him, Suvam knew that he could attempt other entrance exams to redeem himself. He took his mistakes from CAT as learnings and decided to make sure that his IIFT entrance exam went well. With barely a week between CAT and the IIFT entrance, Suvam didn’t have much time to prepare. But he focused on previous years’ question papers and got a feel of the paper pattern. He felt relatively confident and prepared for IIFT. During the exam itself though, another surprise was awaiting him. Having strategized and prepared for a 100 marks paper, Suvam and other test takers were thrown for a loop when the exam was for 300 marks instead of the initial 100! In this video, he takes us through how he cracked the IIFT entrance exams despite those odds and made it to IIFT Delhi!
A computer science graduate, Suvam didn't really prepare for MBA entrance exams like many students do. But he nevertheless found management an interesting career choice and decided to attempt CAT, IIFT and other exams. With quants being a weak area for him (thus breaking those engineering stereotypes), Suvam didn’t do great in CAT. He knew IIFT was a good opportunity for him. He shares how he prepared for IIFT by brushing up on previous years’ papers. He tells us how it’s necessary to understand the conceptual basis of the questions and answers in CAT and other MBA entrance exams. He further tells us how one should focus on the why behind the solutions and learn the process to find the correct answer.
He takes us through the similarities and differences between CAT and IIFT and shares how IIFT allows you to navigate between sections. He also talks about mock tests for the IIFT entrance and how one should approach them. Finally, Suvam talks about dealing with pressure on D-day itself and how one needs to approach these exams mentally. If you’re planning to attempt the IIFT entrance exam, this is a must watch for you!
