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…

CAT is an exam where, apart from a good aptitude, you need the right temperament. Arete provided me with much needed guidance to score well in the test as well as in cracking all my interview calls. I joined Arete’s English classes during my 7th semester, just 2 months before my CAT exam. Abhishek Sir taught us in a very scientific manner which made it both, easy and fun for us to learn the language. He made us realize that a language can be learnt in a very functional manner. Also, the GD-PI sessions conducted by Arete were very instrumental in the preparation for the interviews. Abhishek Sir’s mentoring and guidance in channeling my strengths helped me big time in all the interviews. I would like to sincerely thank Arete for providing me the right direction to get admitted in one of the best B-schools of the country. I wish Abhishek Sir all the very best for his future endeavors.”?

We’d like to thank Siddharth for showing all of us how it’s done and wish him all the best for the road ahead!

All the best!
