Where Do You See Yourself In Five Years – Marrying You! That’s Why IIM!
Time : Mid-july, Final year of Undergrad, 2016
I needed the motivation to prepare for a big exam (read challenge) like CAT. So much more also because of not so glamorous acads (like or unlike most of junta).
And I found it, in the form of the girl of my dreams, the princess of my heart. Yes ! I wanted to desperately get into an Indian Institute of Management so that later on I would become something and hence eligible to marry the girl (same girl I mentioned before). A typical Indian Soch!
I began my preparations from August 2016 (enrolled in test series) and started giving mocks. After 2-3 mocks I decided that I don’t require to join a coaching, also there were no coaching classes available in my city of undergrad, we would have to travel at least a 100 kms for nearest TIME centre.
As each mock passed by, I concentrated more on improving my scores by analysing rigorously (analysed one of my mocks for 8 hours over a span of 2 days).
But over a period of time, you start losing confidence (by low scores) or get distracted. What could help you during these situations is your purpose(motivation) for belling the CAT. Every time I wanted to withdraw I just imagined my prospects of getting married.
And it worked!
CAT’16 : 99.34 %le , converted IIM Indore. ..Left the offer.. Why ?
