- Naveenan Ramachandran - CAT 2005 Classroom Student - Admissions from IIM A, C, L & I.

I took CAT and other exams in December of 2001 and got interview calls from NMIMS, MICA, BIM Trichy, and LIBA Chennai. I got final admissions into MICA, NMIMS and LIBA Chennai. Presently, I am pursuing my PGDBM at NMIMS. At Ascent, I recieved the much required guidance, confidence and the backing I needed to clear these entrance exams. I remember my every doubt getting clarified from the first to the last minute. With wide discussions on varied topics with the faculty I was able to get through the GD's and interviews with great ease.
