Management as Optional

Can anyone please let me know the performance of 'Management' optional. I want to shift from PubAd to Management ...


  • 2 selections in top 200 .. 1 has 6xx rank, one will be in the reserve list .. Rest not known

    Paper did a 180 degree turn this time, and had many more and difficult numericals .. Scoring 200+ was not a cakewalk unlike previous years. That said, the average score of 4 guys mentioned above is ~235

    Take this optional if you are reasonably good in 1. Writing skills 2. Quants 3. Have an MBA/BBA/Commerce background

    Definitely less uncertain and more scoring than PubAd in case one meets the 3 criteria mentioned above. Also, scan the mgmt thread and previous years' papers for a broader idea

    मैं शिव की प्रतिमा बन बैठूं, मंदिर हो यह मधुशाला ।
  • I have all the pre-requisites, but paper 2 seems very lengthy and impossible to complete in 3 hours
