My Journey of Perseverance, Sanjay Khan, IIMA, Class of 2024

When I started my preparation of getting into the top B-Schools of the country, I never would have imagined that I would land up in IIM Ahmedabad. But the universe has a funny way of making things work, as it took me four years and 5 attempts at CAT to reach IIMA after I graduated in 2018 from Jamia Millia Islamia, Delhi. Anyone reading this is advised to not go under the impression that this is what it takes to reach your dream B-School as you will find multiple examples of people clearing CAT and making into great colleges...

Do not underestimate your abilities. Believe. Strive – Ayushman Mukherjee, IIMB Class of 2024

After months of work, mocks, interview prep and PIs, penning my story probably seems the hardest thing I’ve had to do so far. I guess the reason for that is me not knowing where to begin.
