GMAT Adaptive Test Mechanism

The GMAT computer adaptive test (CAT) is not just a computerized version of a paper-and-pencil test. On the GMAT, the test actually adapts to your performance as you are taking the test.

When you begin the GMAT Test, the computer assumes you that have an average score and gives you a question of medium difficulty. As you get answers correct, the computer serves up more difficult questions and estimates your ability. And vice versa, as you answer incorrectly, the computer serves up easier questions and decreases its estimate of your ability. Your score is determined by an algorithm that calculates your ability level based not just on what you got right or wrong; but also on the difficulty level of the questions you answered which is the best part about GMAT computer adaptive test.

Jallikattu – The ban should continue!

Introduction:

jallikattu

On one side, we have the government trying to ban everything and anything controversial and on the other hand the government lifted a ban that agitated more people than it pleased. Jallikattu, the bull-taming game of Tamil Nadu, known for its torturing nature has been given a nod.

Jallikattu was banned four years back when PETA and Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) documented and reported the practice of taming animal by torturing and angering them. The AWBI had written to the environment ministry on December 31, advising against any such action to lift the ban but it seems that the centre turned a deaf ear to the suggestion.

Impact of Brexit on India

Achievers GDPI Workshop: Concept Builder

Topic : Impact of Brexit on India

Positives –

1. UK loses a huge preferential market in the EU and would seek to build new alliances and trade pacts. India being one of the fastest growing economies is rightly poised to gain from this development. The migration of EU skilled labor would decrease and English speaking Indian talent pool is definitely going to benefit out of it.
