Crack your GD, WAT and PI rounds with our 360° Knowledge Sessions

This phase is often the determining step in a candidate’s final selection – and is abound with stories of meritorious students faltering due to their inability to succinctly convey their points of view or express their thoughts to the evaluators.

Knowledge Sessions

Our cohort of IIM Alumni at EduMiles prepares aspirants appearing for competitive examinations through a series of Knowledge Sessions. These interactive workshops enlighten students with topics that encompass the entire gamut of the society - politics, economics, technology, sports, current affairs or international relations. CAT interviews generally demand an adept knowledge of such topics and more, most of which are covered by us.

Competitive examinations are known to put forth questions to the candidates like –

1.    How will you address India’s sliding GDP growth? or

2.    Will Robotics and Automation lead to large scale unemployment? or abstract statements like

3.    What does the colour Red mean to you?

 

It is imperative that the candidate not only has a sound knowledge of socio-economic and political issues, but should also be able to coherently analyse, articulate and present his/her understanding to the evaluator.
