IIFT 2016 exam is just around the corner. While your preparation for Quant and Verbal must be great, it is important that you do not neglect General Knowledge. There is nothing more heartbreaking than to find a student who has cleared the overall cutoff for IIFT but missed out because he / she did not clear the sectional cutoff for GK. Before you ask - Yes! There is a sectional cutoff for GK in IIFT. It is on the lower side but it is definitely there.
I will discussing some ideas around General Knowledge Preparation for IIFT in the free class on Thursday (8 PM). MISB Bocconi, a Mumbai

CAT 2016 is around 1 month away. You might be a student who is confident because you have finished the syllabus. You might be a student who is worried because you have not given enough number of mocks. You might be a student who has lost hope and is mentally prepared to take the exam again next year. Whatever the case may be, it is perfectly natural to be confused at this stage of CAT preparation. As a matter of fact, I would be really surprised if you are a serious CAT aspirant and not confused at this stage. In this post, I will try to spout some ‘gyaan’. I know that I would be stati

CAT 2017 is around one year away. Remember the basic fact, you can get to a basic level of preparation and a decent score very quickly – getting to a great score, on the other hand, requires a lot of effort. In this post I would discuss about some of the things that you can and should do to start your preparation for CAT 2017.
CAT score is one of the many parameters
The other parameters are:
Your score in class 10th
Your score in class 12th
Your score in graduation
Your stream in graduation (Engineering / B. Com / B. Sc)

CAT 2016 is less than two months away. One of the most important resources for CAT preparation is mocks for CAT. There are various questions that students struggle with:
What is the right number of mocks?
Which mocks are the best?
Is it beneficial to go through mock test from previous years?
I will be honest - I think the above questions are not that important. The most important question, in my opinion, is - How to analyze the mocks? A lot of students just look at the overall percentile / overall score and see how they are performing. A serious CAT aspirant needs to dive in more tha

CAT 2016 is just two months away. While that might not be enough if you are starting your preparation now but you can still make a significant difference in your percentile if you do the necessary hard work. I have seen a lot of students waste these precious last few days on topics like Remainders, Probability, Trigonometry, etc. instead of stuff like Geometry, Algebra that might be a lot more fruitful. I wanted to discuss the same with students of my online CAT coaching course but then I thought it would be a good idea to discuss this with a bigger audience. So, I decided to conduct thi

While we do run offers from time to time, Teachers Day has a special place in my heart. In mid of 2012, I was still wondering about whether or not I should quit my job to focus fully on Handa Ka Funda. I had experimented with online content, videos, online courses - paid or free, and multiple other stuff but I wasn't really sure if selling a course online in India with no marketing and virtually no team was a viable business model. I was not looking at Handa Ka Funda as a startup or a big company but like a really small project which could generate enough money for a sustainable living. If
