An enviable CAT or XAT score, an impeccable academic record and a couple of years of work experience or, sometimes, even the lack of it, suffice in fetching an interview call from almost all elite business schools.
However, success in securing admission offers, from thereon, depends almost exclusively on one’s personality, performance and conduct in:
1. Personal Interview (PI)
2. Group Discussion (GD)
3. Written Ability Test (WAT)
While it may seem that the skills needed to outperform rivals in PI or GD or WAT are not intricately interlinked, a careful scrutiny would reveal that all of these are driven by one’s attitude, thought process, creativity, and above all, personality.
At Breakspace, we have discovered for ourselves that it is entirely possible to chisel one’s personality and fine-tune one’s ability to think creatively.
The cornerstone of the program is that students get personalized mentoring.
Students receive customized guidance at every stage of their GD-PI-WAT preparation: starting from one-to-one interactions to feedback sessions to devising personalized strategies.
We train students not only for admissions but also for their life in B-school and beyond.
Different institutes have different criteria of evaluation during the Personal Interview round. We provide institute specific simulated personal interviews and personalized feedback so that students can give their best during the actual interviews. There is no upper limit on the number of mock interviews. The interviews are conducted over Hangouts/Skype and the students can choose slots as per their convenience.
Written Ability Test
To improve the writing skills of students, we give daily and weekly assignments and evaluate them.
Students are provided with all the types of group discussions including case-based discussions, abstract topic GDs, etc. Online students participate in GDs through Hangouts/Skype.
Students often face difficulties in deciding which B-School to join. There are different parameters of B-School selection and the relative importance of different parameters vary from person to person. Students are guided through this decision-making process keeping in mind their forte.
Each student is initially guided to write an impactful statement of purpose. The initial draft is edited by the mentors through multiple iterations to get the final version.
