Careers360: What was your exam strategy for MAH CET?

Aniruddha: There was no strategy as such. However, I charted a plan to attempt the different sections in a particular order in order to maximise my score.

 

Careers360: Which is your dream B-School where you are targeting admission in?

Aniruddha: JBIMS Mumbai of course. It’s certainly one of the best management institutions in the country.

Careers360: What is your advice for the MAH CET aspirants who would be appearing for the test next year?

Aniruddha: My advice to them would be to have a clear vision in mind as to which set of colleges they are aiming for. Accordingly, set a target score in mind and work towards it, not only while giving full length mocks, but also while attempting sectional and individual topic tests. Success not only depends on your performance on the D-day but also, on every day of hard work.
