However what should your strategy be if you have
no awards and achievements (other than being
school prefect - somehow all MBA candidates are
school prefects) to speak of and you found yourself
selected by one of the IIM's or other top tier
B-schools.

For you to succeed here are a few pointers that can
aid in the process:

1) Be clear about your goals: In your case you will
have to be definitive about what you want to achieve
in the next 3-5 years and exactly how an MBA will
fit in the picture. Suppose you are an Arts graduate,
suppose Psychology Honors. Now you should focus
on the industry to begin with- suppose Finance and
Investment Analysis. You can state that a major
part of the investment analysis is examining trading
psychology. Why some stocks tick despite poor
fundamentals and some fail to move despite good
fundamentals. You can state that you have enough
of numerical understanding and backed by an MBA
in finance you could carve out a strong niche in the
area of Investment Analysis and Dealing of
securities.

2) Show your ability to think business: If you have
never won a award, examine activities that seem to
add value to some process. For example you could
start a blog on a topic such as Tax planning for
home based professionals. Talk about what kind of
advice and articles you wrote for the blog and how
popular your blog was by examining the page views
received from the blog. You can start a blog on
wordpress or blogger as they allow free blogs and
also have a statistics section to measure how many
page views you received.

3) Be well prepared to talk about your academics: Be
clear of the basic fundamentals, as they will surely
want to know how serious you were about your
studies. Go over the major fundamentals and be sure
to be able to answer them

It is not an easy task to prepare for IIM Personal Interview questions . So don't punish yourself
mentally if the initial answers you write don't seem
impressive enough.

Keep practicing to make your answers better and you may end up doing quite well at the IIM Personal Interview. Get more tips on how to perform for the IIM Personal Interview questions
