in first attempt I left many offers which was not aligned to my aspiration although I was getting descent offers of which I could have chosen one but still I reappeared in the exam which was uncertain for me . Which always kept me in fear that if I get caught I will be liable for legal punishment and set back to my dear one’s. The decision was supported by fact that I had few contacts in the police department but the situation never arose which could have led to worse consequences.Decision taken under certain condition One of my certain decision was perusing MBA after graduating in business administration which was a thoughtful decision as it had better job scope and my skills were in line with the above career. It proved to be better now as I am able to relate most of the knowledge I have.this was completely uncertain taking into account my dedication to work hard and toughness level of the CAT. And I am confident my decision would be excellent in all condition and fulfill all wishes that I dreamt of. The decision was not so good but manageable looking at the prospects and value the college can provide me which I got through my CAT score. Decision taken under risk condition: The decision to drive car throughout my graduation without a valid driving license was my risky decision. Brajesh kumar . Decision taken under uncertain condition One of my uncertain decision was that I appeared twice for CAT .if I don’t get it would have ruined my career and hope to make best out of the opportunity previously available to me .
