What Sai Praneeth Reddy Told PTI:

  • » I used to write mock test from 9 am to 12 noon without fail and this was proved very crucial in cracking the test. I was very good with quantitative and DILR sections. I concentrated more on English in the last one month. These are the basic things I followed during preparation and it did pay well.
  • » I am feeling very excited that I have achieved 100 percentile, I hope to perform well in the upcoming rounds of Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interview (PI) with the same spirit and get into IIM-A.
  • » I realised that I can excel in the technical field but there are areas where you have to get your work done by others. For which you need to have team management skills and there is no other better place to learn those skills than IIM in India.
  • » I won’t say I’ll be going to IIM right now, I also have a job offer in hand, so I haven’t decided yet what to do first but both the options are opened for me.
  • » Learning from mistakes is the main thing that will help anyone get better in life. Don’t miss AIMCATs. For English, start reading novels and articles, it helps a lot. For quantitative ability section, be strong with basics.
