CAT - Over and OUT


This goes out to all the people before they start asking me my CAT score. Got a paltry 81.27% ile. Leaves me heading to no where.

So am I sad? Not exactly. I feel like a lost warrior. I fought I lost. Hmm but I did nt give in in between. I fought till the whistle was blown thrice.

Did I give in my best? Hmm... Tough question. Aint sure. If I look back maybe I could have tried a bit harder, but then, No ones died of hard work, but why take chances? :-D

I had some visions of the year ahead, under the presumption that I would be clearing the exams. Guess those visions get to go back to the Archive folder in my memory management system. Now its time to start creating new visions.

As soon as I got the result and was discussing the same with mom and my first impulse was to say "Mom I will give it again."
She was like "What the hell... Will you keep giving it ad infinitum. Ridiculous. Stay put. Try to concentrate on your new job from hence forth."

Then I realized, Yea that makes sense actually. I should know my limits. By giving the exam again and again and again whom am I trying to prove that I am a determined person? And I have always believed in the saying, "You get what you deserve, not what you want". So maybe those elite IIMs are too grand a dream for me.

If I look at the positives, not clearing CAT irons out quite a lot of troublesome months of decision making on the personal and professional front. I just have a straight path now with no future probable quandaries regarding the road not taken.



So heres me, the optimist, still believing, whatever happens, happens for the good only.....

@Ashu - Yea dear. CAT wali daal nehi galti to GMAT wali try karte hain. Waise bhi is budhape main bachchon ke saath padhne main thodi sharam ayegi if i try giving CAT again. So better to study GMAT wid some more oldies.

I like your approach. Failure is a part of life. It makes us go and go hard at what we want.
