A BE degree holder from BESU(IIEST), Shibpur batch 2012 to Xavier School of Management, XLRI, Jamshedhpur alumini of 2014, Nyanja Dutta from Kolkata currently works as Business Consultant with an IT Firm in Kolkata.
The man of uncommon intellect is also a CAT/XAT mentor with IMS Kolkata, in the QA-DI-LR-DM space, and also conducts GD-PI sessions and mock Interviews for several institutes in the state.
In an interview with India Today Education, Nyanja Dutta surprisingly said that he did not want to take admission in any of the institutes.
“I have no plans of applying to an IIM. I am very satisfied with my current job. I just appeared for the exam for my own self satisfaction,” he said.
This is not the first time that Dutta appeared for CAT. “In 2011 I gave my first attempt and scored 99.43 percentile. I just wanted to get 100 percentile for once,” he said.
What helped him accomplish this amazing feat? “I scored 100 without any coaching, and I am not a aspirant,” Dutta said astonishingly.
Here’s his score card:
- Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension: 97.21
- Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning: 100
- Quantitative Analysis: 99.90
- Total 100
Further, asking him to give tips to other students, Nilanjan says the key to success is through hard work, along with a bit of luck.
“These days, a lot of candidates do not make a good preparation strategy and end up preparing for tough questions only,” he added.
