Leave a Comment
Abhinav jain, who has scored 99.99 percentile in CAT 2013 exam and going to placed at IIM Ahmedabad. Abhinav Jain is from Rewa, Madhya Pradesh. On his 2nd chance to CAT, he got 100 percentile (205/225) in section 1 and 99.15 percentile (147/225) in section 2.

He also got offer from Cognizant Technologies Solutions on his bachelor degree placement but he refused better choose CAT as he dreamed for IIM-A. Not only in CAT he has done other mba entrance exam IIFT-17, SNAP-99.9, NMAT- 247, XAT- yet to declared. But obviously, his first preference is CAT. As most of the student ask that in how many months one can crack CAT and get minimum marks to get admission in IIM, Abhinav has prepared in just six-eight months as he is good in maths and English.

What was his study plan for Preparation?

He started the covering the topics which he liked much, in which he has good interest, then he started learning all the syllabus of CAT topic by topic. He was quite weak in verbal and Quantitative, so he practiced more and more about Quant. Then he started Revision for almost month and then he focused on Mock CATs (Mock Test).

He believe that coaching is not necessary but if you feel that you need some guidance about CAT or any particular subject then joining coaching institute is fine. Abhinav loves to watch sitcoms (TV Show), comedy nights, comedy circus and many more shows.

On his first attempt to CAT, he scored 98.13 percentile but couldn't make it up to his expectation (also he appeared on 3s year of engineering) so, he try again (he didn't give up on his dream). He is from rewa and currently studying final year of engineering at Ahmedabad 's nirma university.

He personally believes that one full year is sufficient for preparing for CAT or any other competitive exam. when we asked that do you want to give any tips to future CAT aspirants, he answered :-

Just believe in yourself :)

Why CLT20 is not Popular As Much As IPL? - Management Case Study

Leave a Comment
This post will provide you a MBA Case Study on the T20 Cricket Leagues of India.This post is based on the recent research on IPL and Champions League with respect to English premier league [Football League].

Why CLT20 is not Popular As Much As IPL? - Management Case Study

A recent research says that huge fan following and long fixture can help CLT20 to grow more in India. As we know that IPL has more no of matches and so, they have almost 2 moths of long long T20 Series. While CL is just 2 week of game plan. 

Researchers Says that this is one of the major reason why CL is not working in india with compare to IPL. CL have small fixture and all matches are 20-20 overs. IPL had 3.8 of TRP while CL has just 0.13 of TRP this year. 

Why Such massive difference?

Well, for the reason, they had given example of EPL. English Primer League, a major and biggest primer league for Football game which runs from August to May each year [all the year] with 38 matches each for each team [32 teams] and total of 380 matches are being played.

So, one must say that such long fixture can bore people, in india people prefer short term tournaments. Is it so? then why CL is getting Fail? 

I am also agree on this, Long Term Matches and schedule will help people to follow tournament more and more. These will help them to Bering more and more interest in tournament. Also, EPL just played on Weekends. So the people needs good entrainment after hard working whole week.Such experiments can also be done at IPL/CL too.

As per Pagalguy post, National Football League comprises 32 teams split equally between the National Football Conference and the American Football Conference. The playing season lasts from August through to the last week of January (about 17 weeks). 

Within each conference, each team plays 14 games. Six teams from each conference play in a knock out play-off and the winners of the two conferences meet each other in the Super Bowl (since 1967) for the right to be called the champion in that year.

On IPL even, Each weekend they get more and more TRP, compared to week days. And the reason, world cup and other big tournaments get more popularity then other series.


So, it can be said that if we plan for long and play more matches under one tournament, then the success ratio for tournament can be high.

Now Answer ... 

What is the total no of Rs. 1  coins? 

What is total value of 50 paisa coins?

What is the total amount in the bag?

Solution :-  As amount in 25 paisa and 50 paisa are equal, corresponding ration between no of coins of 25 paisa and 50 paisa coins is 2 :1.

Similarly, ration between no of Rs.1 and 25 paisa coins is 1 : 6. The fina ratio of no of coins, 25 paisa, 50 paisa, 1 Rs is 6 :3 :1.

As, total ratio of no. of coins is 50, actual nos are 25 paisa ; 30 coins, 50 paisa :15 coins: 1 Rs : 5 coins.

So, total no of Rs. 1  coins is 5, total value of 50 paisa coins is Rs.7.50 and total amount in the bag is Rs.20. :)

[CAT 2013] Mathematical Aptitude Question No. 1

Question 1 :- There are four customers, each visited a meat shop and one by one, each of them bought 2/3rd the amount of meat the butcher had, plus 1/3 kg. At the end the butcher was left with none. Find the amount of meat the butcher had, to start with?

Option A) 40 KG B) 13KG C) 80/3 KG D) 4 1/3 KG.

Do you find this question hard? well its quite easy, lets took at the Solution below, before that, i request you to please try it on your own first.

Solution :- Let we assume there is X kg of meat with butcher start with. So, X Kg meat was left before the fourth customer came, then 2x/3 + 1/3 = X or X = 1.

 Similarly, if Y KG was left when the third customer came, then [(Y-1) = (2/3) (Y) + (1 /3)], because 1KG was given to the fourth customer.

This gives Y = 4, working backwards on the smiler lines, we can see there was 40 KG, meat before the first customer visited the SHOP. So, Answer is 40 KG (option A).
