Siddharth Gupta, IIT-R, IIM Calcutta (2014-2016)

Siddharth GuptaIf there ever was a student befitting the title of ‘the Underdog’, I’d say it was Siddharth Gupta. I say so because, when I met him for the first time, I was surprised he approached us so late for his CAT prep. All his peers clearly had a year’s head start over him. Yet, he was determined to go the distance and literally burn the candle at both ends by attending classes in two separate batches simultaneously just to complete the portions in time. And surely enough, he went on to score  a 99.95%ile in the CAT 2013 and eventually convert his call from IIM Calcutta. A nail biting finish to a phenomenal and inspiring race to success. Here’s what Siddharth had to say about his experience preparing with us…

Welcome to Areté : CAT | GMAT | MAT | GRE | CPT | SOFT SKILLS

The most articulated value in Greek culture is Areté. Translated as "virtue," the word actually means something closer to "being the best you can be," or "reaching your highest human potential." The man or woman of areté is a person of the highest effectiveness; they use all their faculties: strength, bravery, and wit, to achieve real results. The concept implies a human-centered universe in which human actions are of paramount importance; the world is a place of conflict and difficulty, and human value and meaning is measured against individual effectiveness in the world. According to Aristotle, areté is explicitly linked with human knowledge. If areté is knowledge and study, the highest human knowledge is knowledge about knowledge itself; in this light, the theoretical study of human knowledge, which Aristotle called "contemplation," is the highest human ability and happiness.
