Forgot to mention, I have started preparing for GMAT in July and am planning to take the test in early October and Apply for Round 2.

Also, I am a bit confused about my post-MBA goals. I need to develop myself more to see myself a more capable in leadership position in leading organizations. However, I am not sure of the sector I want to work in right now.

You have solid grades in 10th, 12th and undergrad - congrats! Jadavpur through well-known and strong school, would be a rank below the IITs/NITs and BITS, so you need to put that extra push in your GMAT and application

Do you still pursue Photography? Make sure you highlight extracurriculars you are involved in for a long period of time. Else choose few of the top activities and stick to them. Else it becomes difficult to separate signal from noise

You seem to have solid on-ground sales expereince that will serve you weill in the application process. You do have solid competition from people applying from likes of Shell, Schlumberger and energy practise of MBB. Your recent promotion to Asst. Manager and expreince in leading a team of six distributors need to be highlighted. The two outstanding ratings alo need to be brought out

During the lockdown for Covid-19, along with the team of distributors, actively helped mechanics with rations and source of livelihood.

This is impressive and we should highlight this in the community section

These are fine but not as relevant for MBA. Can go in additional information

Forgot to mention, I have started preparing for GMAT in July and am planning to take the test in early October and Apply for Round 2.

Try to take in Sept end so you have some buffer to re-take if required. Aim for 750+ if for a serious shot at M7

Also, I am a bit confused about my post-MBA goals. I need to develop myself more to see myself a more capable in leadership position in leading organizations. However, I am not sure of the sector I want to work in right now.

Career narrative is an extremely critical piece and the reson why most applications fail. This needs to be well thought out and specific. We cover this in detail during the process.

Wish you the best smile
