Village lads crack CAT code

Are you holding yourself back from writing CAT because English was not your medium of instruction at school or college Read on to know how two Hindi and Gujarati medium students not only cracked CAT but also scored fairly well in its verbal ability section, vital for an impressive percentile. Not just due to their schooling, the two also stand apart from the lot of new IIM-A entrants as they come from humble families from rural areas. From a village in Rajpipla to IIMs corridors, it’s a dream come true. There are not many colleges and educational institutes in my village. And dropout rate is also high, said Prasant Patel whose schooling in Gujarati medium laid foundation for his entry into the premium B-school.
After school, Prasant headed to Vallabh Vidhyanagar to pursue pharmacy. I prepared for CAT entrance exam for four years. Gujarati medium was not a hindrance but it took me more time to prepare for the test, said Prasant who cleared CAT in one go by securing 99.68 percentile. On his soft skills, the IIMite said, Newspapers, books, novels and any literature in English that I came across, I just kept reading. This helped me improve English and clear verbal ability section, said the son of a farmer.

While Prasant had his father as support, for 23-year-old Sunil Chippa it was his mother who raised him with great difficulty after his father passed away. I did not want to be a burden on my mother. I paid my coaching class fee from my scholarship, said Sunil who belongs to Bhilwada in Rajasthan. Communicating in English was tough as I did my schooling in Hindi medium. Verbal ability section was a real challenge but my roommates in Vallabh Vidhyanagar and friends at coaching institute really helped me overcome the barrier. Never in my dreams, had i thought of making it to IIMA in the first attempt, said Sunil whose family income is less than Rs 1 lakh per annum. Meanwhile, IIMA announced the result of its two year PG programmes. Of the 380 students who made it to the IIMA, 42 are girls, said Professor Diptesh Ghosh, Admissions Chairperson.
