Writing Ability Test : 2 Topics were given to us and we had to write it for about 20 minutes. There was no breakup for specific sections. The first image was of a lady serving food to her daughters and her husband is what I perceived from the picture. You could relate it to the picture below.

We had to think on it for 1 minute, and write down the answers of the questions in the next 4 minutes. And the other topic for the WAT was demonetisation which we had to write 250+ words in 20 minutes.

GE (or rather I should say GD disguised as GE) : We had a 12 member group and there were 2 panelists. The topic given to us was, “Should MP / MLAs have basic educational qualifications?”

I would say it turned out more into a fish-market than a proper GD with everyone putting in their efforts so as to keep their point in front of the panelists. There was 0 to less co-ordination among the team members and everyone tried to shout as much as possible. As if one shouts, they think that they will be applauded by the panel even if making irrelevant statements *slow-claps*.

Personal Interview : General questions about myself. Why the switch from IT to MBA? What are the technical aspects of a business? Why do you think an MBA will help you in the long run? What do you know about international business? What do you think about demonetisation? Why SIIB Pune?
