The patience and perseverance of a Odisha-based man finally paid off after he secured admission at the Indian Institute of Management in Ahmedabad (IIMA) in his 10th attempt.
The man, identified as 33-year-old Dwibesh Nath gave his Common Admission Test (CAT) four times to secure a seat at a renowned institute, but could not do so. He also gave a GMAT exam six times to try and get a seat at a prestigious institute. In his sixth attempt, he secured his seat at the management institute.
“I appeared for CAT for the first time in the final year of my engineering. Initially, the score was not good but later I secured good marks, but it was not enough to get admission into reputed institutes like IIM-A. In the meantime, I got a campus selection in a good company and, I took up the job,” Dwibesh said
“I always wanted to pursue MBA from a reputed institution, but my educational background didn’t support me much. I come from an Odia medium school and my English was weak. I was criticised for my accent. It was disappointing and discouraging for me,” he added.
Nath completed his bachelors in engineering following which got his first job. After he began working, he remained committed towards his dreams and after nine failed attempts, secured a seat at IIMA.
