Out of above three, WAT is the most important as it forms the basis of questions in your Personal Interview round also. Besides those who are also preparing for XAT 2014, to be conducted on January 5, 2014 will have to encounter a 20 minutes’ Essay Writing Test which will form the part of main XAT examination. Whether it is WAT or Essay Writing Test both are similar with a difference that XAT has included it with the written examination and CAT associated management colleges conduct it after the declaration of written test round. CAT 2013 concluded on November 6, 2013 and probably aspirants must have been giving some serious thought on WAT preparation. MBAUniverse.com provided an insight article that number of IIMs and other leading B schools are either gradually substituting GD by WAT or concurrently holding both the rounds i.e. WAT as well as GD. IIM Admission Criteria 2014: No GD round, Focus on WAT & PI Now learn the important aspects on WAT and essay writing from Prof. S.K. Agarwal, expert in preparation of WAT and PI How important is WAT in IIMs or Essay Writing in XLRI
  2. 2. CAT 2013 written test result is going to be declared on January 14, 2014 and immediately after that successful candidates will be called for the next round of admission, the WAT. If this Writing Ability Test is casually taken by any aspirant, there is no way he or she can expect some miracle. The weightage is more than anticipated. Accomplished and well worded writing skill always makes good managers who reach the top corporate positions. Realizing this fact, the top Management B-schools such as IIMs, XLRI, IIFT, that earlier focused on Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interviews (PI), have substituted the Group discussion with Essay Writing and some of them have added this feature for admission to their various Management programmes. MCQs don’t require you to go on writing with a goal to communicate your thoughts but the writing ability test does. Need for WAT Why is such a change of focus so much needed in the second or final admission round to the most coveted B-schools? The need is obvious. GD although gives an opportunity to discuss pros and cons of a topic, it, during the course becomes a free for all “fish market” where it is difficult to understand anything in the ‘din’. This leaves a bad impression and the moderator has to intervene sometimes. Even if you have the ability to express your ideas in an effective manner, some ‘bully’ in the group may deprive you of the opportunity. This is one of the major reasons of substituting GD by WAT which brings out your inherent qualities of thought expression. Future managers must be aware of the importance of error free writing without ambiguity of thought and to make it clear, the top business schools have been resorting to conduct Writing Ability Test, before granting admission to the world renowned MBA programmes. Key topics: Concentrate on topics based on i) current affairs- like Mission to Mars, Inclusion of indigeneously built fighter air craft, Rise of common man as a political force, ii) Social- How safe are women, social media, social activism, Lokpal Bill; corruption-how to address it; Rising gap in the society; Is MBA necessary to become a good Manager iii) Business and Economics- Policies to curb inflation, Policies by New RBI Governor, Economic development-causes of slow growth rate; Will India remain way behind China; CHOGM summit in SriLanka, FDI in multi retail business; iv) Political- Recent rise of Aam Aadmi Party-will it define future of the country; crumbling or revising democracy in India; State sponsored Terrorism or Terrorism is a subjective thought; The type of Government India needs; Should pre election opinion polls be banned v) Environmental-Global warming; Himalayan Tsunami; Developing countries are more concerned on environmental issues than the developed ones.
