Expert Suggestions on Preparation for Computer Based CAT-09


Second Term Gets Over at IIM-A

- by Vinamra Srivastava *

Dated: 2nd January 2007

Here I am, in Pune, sitting in the closed confines of my comfortable abode. But you know what, this time I will be kind of eager to go back to campus. And that's primarily because of how the 2nd term went by.

It was pretty much unlike how the first term was. We had lesser number of subjects this term. So yes, the load was slightly less. Before the mid terms, we were busy in summer placements preparation. So many presentations, so many versions of the CV... but all that was kind of fun, better than sitting and mugging for the subjects at least. Post mid term, placements started and there was a break of about 10 days from the classes. After that, Confluence happened that again took 3-4 days. And by the time it ended, we had started to enjoy the surprisingly lesser load that we had. We had more time to spend on things apart from academics now.

Mind you though, the load was still very much there. In fact, at one point in time, we had 7 quizzes in 10 days. However, compared to what we had been through in the first term, this was much better. We had inter-section sports going on, lots of parties and treats, club activities and what not! We all had become very accustomed to the academic load and could now manage our time to do lots of extra stuff.

I still remember one weekend, where we had a Saturday off, the only Saturday in the term where we had an off. On Friday night, I played, watched movies and slept early. Got up late on Saturday morning, went out of campus with a friend, came back late, had a party with my group-mates, again went out for dinner with all of them, came back late in the night, surfed the net and slept well late into Sunday morning. Agreed, Sunday was spent in doing a marketing assignment, but the way I spent the weekend really thrilled me and I cherished it a lot.

So essentially, we were pretty much chilled out this term. People spent time in watching movies, playing, going out with friends, or simple plain old sleeping!!! But whatever it was, it was a good break from the regular academics. And probably that's why we were in a fix at the time of end-terms when we realized there's lots of catching up to do. But from our experience, I guess we all managed that pretty well in the end too. So all in all, a great term where at least I enjoyed being in WIMWI a lot.

It was a special term in some aspects. One being that finally MANAC (Management Accounting) is over! Yahooooo... No longer will we have to see the dreaded MANAC quiz notice on that dreaded quiz notice board. The only time we will see MANAC quiz notice again will be when the next fachchas are here and we will be the kings. Ha! Ha! Ha!

The term also had ISPE, a subject about Indian Social and Political environment, where we were sensitized to the society we live in and where we all did projects that would in some way or the other help the society and the under-privileged.

We also had some great insightful debates in the ISPE classes about sensitive topics, and the passion involved was for everyone to see. We were taught Marketing by a Professor who has co-authored the famous Kotler book, and needless to say, all his lectures are simply god-level. We were taught Spoken Business Communication pre mid term where our presentations were video-recorded at the end to make us realize we are not really the studs that we think we are!!!  

They say the third term is equally tough as the first one and after the chilled out second term, we all are going to face a super stressful time again. But I am enjoying WIMWI thoroughly and am ready for anything to come at me now. As they say, bring 'em on!!!!!
