The First Aretian to make it to IIM Bangalore: Gaurav Bachhav, IIT-R, IIM-B (2012-2014)

Hi Abhishek sir,

To be honest with myself, my journey to the best of the B-school in India couldn’t have been possible without your personal support. I am really indebted to you. You are an awesome teacher. I have never seen somebody like you with such an energy. Please suggest some method to me? as to how to remain fresh & enthusiastic the whole day(12 continuous hours) that too taking all those classes with the not-so-interested people in front of you.

But still I have found out one thing that you can make changes in. I think rather than having each class with a lot of grammar focus, you should concentrate more on giving practice exercises on other question types like sentence completion & others. As there are only 1-2 questions from grammar & those too we can’t be sure about as those involve some other logic that’s not there in any book. This is not just my opinion, I have heard it from many & that’s why many people skip classes or don’t join. I may be wrong, but this is my feedback.

Thanking you
Yours truly

Gaurav Bachhav

(p.s. Gaurav is yet another classroom student of Arete and his CAT 2011 Score was 99.23 %ile)

  1. Dear Gaurav,

    Thank you so much for the honest feedback. I assure you your inputs shall be incorporated the very next semester starting this July itself. I shall definitely increase the number of practice sessions on Sentence Completion and other such question types.

    As far as the importance of Grammar is concerned, the shortage of the number of sentence correction questions doesn’t rule out the importance of understanding grammar; and I do believe that the CAT Sentence Correction questions are based on well established rules of grammar that, although may not be found in any single book, can definitely be defined categorically. I have always tried my best to know and explain them all, reducing ambiguity to the minimum. Clearly such a feedback implies that I have failed somewhere, and I thank you for helping me realize that! I really appreciate it!

    I wish you all the best for your career ahead. We hope to have you with us again sometime soon.

    Thanks and regards,

    Abhishek Raj
