IIM Calcutta PGPEX Admission Details and Applications Essays 2019-20

Here is a snapshot of the vital information for the applicants


ESSAY QUESTIONS

  1. Essay 1:
    While the essay question mentions only ‘three activities’, they are looking not just for any activities but truly impactful examples that illustrate your key strengths. For this reason, mentioning things that merely meet the bar is not going to be enough. For example, if you are an IT professional, saying that you have worked on three different projects and describing coding and project management work around that is going to far from sufficient. Instead, speak about impactful incidents where your analytical and leadership skills have truly come to the fore. Choose different examples that showcase different abilities, rather than talking about the same strengths thrice. Also, remember a critical piece of advice that some candidates tend to forget – these are supposed to be activities YOU have performed, or taken a lead role in. Describing a part contribution in a major initiative, if that contribution is not clearly seen to have achieved results on its own, is not going to be enough.


  2. Essay 2:
    The key aspects to keep in mind for this one are background and context. Why do you consider the situation challenging? How did you meet the challenge? While the essay asks for detail on how you overcame the situation, many successful candidates in the past have done very well by describing a situation that they could not ultimately overcome, but beautifully describing what they learnt from it.

  3. Essay 3:
    This is an optional essay, so do not feel the compulsion to use it, but do not also leave this blank if some aspects of your candidacy remain unaddressed. Career gaps, poor academic performance, unusual work appraisals, and frequent job changes all fall into this category, but are of course not an exhaustive listing of things you could mention.

  4. Essay 4:
    This one is for reapplicants only. While addressing this, remember to list out salient changes, not just any changes in your profile since your last application. If you are applying after an year, there are some things that are obvious and expected, and mentioning them is not going to get you any credit. More experience, somewhat more work responsibilities, are things that do not get you huge credit. Look for what truly matters and has changed since your last application.

The excerpt of my B-School journey and story, and the important role played by Expert’s Global:- When I was sitting on the couch of Expert’s Global office, more than a year ago, reading various successful stories mentored by Experts, I dreamed of sharing my own story someday and imagined how it would be for me. Now that I get the chance to share it, I am quite thrilled. The journey was long, tiresome and full of struggles, yet the learning was subliminal. Expert’s Global were the only people I approached after reading various reviews online. I took the complete package and started with the GMAT preparation, then came the applications, interviews and finally the decision of which school to go to and they guided me through each of these steps. During the GMAT preparation part, I received complete study material, plenty of practice questions and a proper schedule. There are also a good number of mock tests that really give the feel of CAT test such as GMAT so when THE DAY arrives you will feel like you know everything about it. I was preparing with full zeal but then I got promoted, which showed a lot on my preparation. My scores stopped increasing and I decided to take the test. My GMAT score was not exceptional (a lousy 680) so I knew I needed strong essays and a nicely built profile (time to thank the promotion) and Shailesh Sir proved to be a gem on this front-I remember emailing him at 2;30 in the morning on the day of my first application and received immediate response and support. Such efforts go far beyond and ultimately it shows on your results. Experts advised me to apply to 11 schools, which I did, however I could not complete 2 applications so I ended up applying to 9 schools. Out of these I received interview calls from 6 schools namely Foster, ND Mendoza, Mason, GWU, Katz and BYU. I got admits from 3 of these schools, 2 with good scholarships: Foster did not offer any scholarship. My final call was between GWU and BYU. GWU offered me $60K scholarship so tuition for me was less than BYU. Though BYU does not offer scholarships that easily (I have asked a few other admits) but again Shailesh Sir insisted that I ask for a scholarship, so I did. And I got a scholarship. It was great! That made my decision easier, I guess. BYU was a clear win (though in the start, I was so confused). In my opinion the best thing about Experts is that they prepare you to do, instead of doing it themselves-it kind of warms you up for the longer run ;) In all, I think it was a tremendous experience and without the support I received, it would have been much difficult and far less fertile! I heartily thank the entire experts team for their guidance and support. Thumbs up!
