Shortest route in Life… July 20, 2007

I have always wondered about the people who get a MBBS degree after 5 to 6 years of hardship and then crack the CAT to get into IIMs. By the time they passout from IIM it would be around 7 to 8 years in the career benchmark to start earning a buck. The best match is to be a IIMA grad with an IIT background. But most of the things in life doesnt happen in the best way. One of the best routes is by getting educated in DPS, Delhi or KV or anyother reputed CBSE school and starting his/her IIT plans right from 9th grade or else after finishing 12thgrade, joining B.com in any reputed universitites in the country and then getting into IIMA. This option requires only 5 years of his/her life and after that he/she might see a lot of bux in the Management world. The cgpa doesn’t matter how low they are until you crack CAT and GD. Only in the PI you need to answer valid reasons to your poor scores in UG. You may be a average student in your Acads, but you must have exceptional reading and speaking capabilities to survive the WIMWIian life. After that once you are inside the IIMs they are considering only the cgpa for the summer placements and it would be relatively easier to get a good score in B.com than an IITian. The most important thing is that you have completed your Bachelors Degree in a year less than that of an IITian. The main drawback of a non-IITian is that you may not be good at analytical approach but an IITian has this brilliant quality which is mostly required to survive in IIMA. Another good news is that, as about 90 to 95 percent of the IIMs juntas are from engineering background, he/she could stand unique among the crowd.

After India got Independance in 1947, IITs are formed and it is considered one of the prestigious institutions of the country till now. Only about 15000 juntas are selected from 3 lakh aspirants through their competitive test IIT-JEE which consists of 2 hours test of 3 papers each. In 2003, all RECs are united together under a common examination AIEEE which is 3 hour exam and it is open to all people. Until the unification of RECs the admission to REC are done according to the procedure of the their respective state in which it is located. In the recent survey of Top ten Engineering Colleges in India Today, Anna University finds a definite place in the top ten most of the times. Yet the admission to the college is based on 12th grade marks.

Tamil Nadu State Board 12th grade syllabus is actually a precise version of CBSE. It can never be compared with the CBSE 12th grade syllabus. Thus scoring marks is easier and most of them cram things and rewrite the exact answer as it is in the text book. SRV, a boarding school at Rasipuram near Salem are the experts in making the students to cram things exactly as it is in the Text book. The 12th grade marks should be kept only as Acads like our 10th grade marks and it should not be qualification for the admission to the college. A general category student who may have a high IQ but if he makes a small error in his 12th grade maths paper and it makes a lot of differences in his career. Admission to the colleges should be made only through competetive exams which consists of multiple choice questions. Another reason is that only a few percent of the seats are allocated for other state students and these restrictions should be broken and it should be open for the whole country.

Another point is that when my brother was studying his first year he has the option to study any foreign language like French, German, Japanese etc. But it lacks in my college days as they have made it english as the compulsary for all. This sucks!!!

Expecting this change to happen sooner in the coming years…
