Student report for Quoin

Maurya C Patnaik (IIM A): I had attended the GD/PI process at other institutes before being referred to Quoin. The personalized attention from all tutors during mock GDs, an individual grading system, feedback and analysis of each member's strength and weaknesses and most of all, Patrick Sir's strategies and dos and don'ts, were some of the key differentiating factors that really impressed me. Yet another dimension was the careful evaluation of personal and technical questions and the general knowledge sessions that have continued to assist me long after the admission process (where I got through 4 IIMs including IIM-A), even during my placement process.

Jai Tiwari (IIM C): I believe that to do well in Group Discussions and interviews, apart from loads of practice one needs constant attention and guidance from someone who has expertise in it and has himself gone through this phase. During my preparation I found Quoin Academy having the right balance of all the above mentioned qualities. The constant guidance provided by the Patrick sir and the regular practice sessions organized here prepared me well to show my best on D-days.
