Introduction:
·
Each session is of 90 minutes duration.
·
Nomenclature of subjects is as follows:
o
Quantitative Aptitude (QA)
o
Verbal Ability (VA)
o
DI and LR (DI & LR)
o
Personal Development (PD)
·
Nomenclature of courseware is also
changed as follows:
o
Reference Books (The Theory material)
o
Concepts (The session material)
o
ST will be called as Self Section Test
(SST).
o
SST will be called as CST (State)
o
Concepts, Word list, Word Miscellany,
FLT, Builder will remain same.
·
The macro structure is similar to
previous year i.e. Thrust module will be followed by Accelerate, Propel,
mSuccess and CGB module.
·
Each Module is a rolling module i.e.
each module is a set of ‘n’ weeks. Each week will have a certain learning
objective independent to other weeks. Students will be admitted in a module at
the start of any week. After completing n weeks he will be shifted to next
modules. Let’s say a module is having 10 week structure. A student who will
join the module in week 1 will end at week 10, a students joining in week 2
will study till week 10 and leave the module after week 1, a students who will
join in week 5 will study week 5, week 6 , 7, .. , 10, 1 ,2.. , week 4 and will
be shifted to next module after week 4.
·
PD sessions will be planned every
alternate Sundays i.e on I and III and will have a standard structure on all
Sundays (Refer following pages for details). All fourth and fifth Sundays can
be kept off or can be used for session adjustment.
·
SAT will be planned on every second
Sunday and will also have a standard structure.
·
PCSs will be planned in Thrust, Propel
and mSuccess. A PCS week will be planned every month. The point of PCS will be
two months after a student joins Thrust, after TTT in Propel and after
Understanding Interview in mSuccess.
·
Induction modules will be inserted
before some of the modules to handle one/two issues:
o
In the concept of rolling batch if
there is a need to explain some necessary concepts to the students then those
concepts could be covered in induction module.
o
The material which are distributed only
once i.e. not related to sessions like courseware of thrust, accelerate etc. will be delivered in
induction modules
·
Induction module of mMBA state will
have a five session structure.
·
“Thrust MST” module of
·
Propel will have three parts as
follows:
o
A three week rolling module including
CSTs and TTT.
o
A test series including FLTs, other TTT
and B school sessions etc.
·
Structure of mSuccess, CGB will be decided later
·
For detailed structure refer rest of
the document and Structures in NERVE.
·
Test series will start from April 2010
and run till Feb 2011. The design of test series will be finalized in last week
of February.
·
Support to sharp batches will remain
like last year (or may be reconsidered in May)
o
Builders will be planned for Rest of
the batches

Students
joining the course of mMBA state 2011 will start their preparation from the
Induction module. Since the larger structure of Thrust MST is rolling in nature,
the induction module is designed in such a fashion that the necessary and
general thing could be covered initially. The material required for Thrust MST
as well as Induction will be distributed in the first session of the Induction module

Counseling Sessions (PCS)
mMBAIntro: This is the first session of the induction
module. Here we cover Introduction to CH EdgeMakers, Introduction to the
product, Teaching Methodology, CH EdgemakersInfrastructure and some general terminologies
Concepts are session material designed to be
discussed in the session. Every concept will contain 20 to 30 questions based
on certain topics. Concepts Exercise
are designed to give lot of practice of particular variety of question to
students.
PD sessions: These sessions are conducted on
Sundays. The larger aim is to improve the students on awareness and
communication part.
Personal Counseling Session (PCS): PCS
is aimed to give students inputs on their performance and to handle their
problems related to mMBA. The PCS is conducted thrice in the course i.e in
Thrust MST. Propel and mSuccess.
Induction IMP, Propel 1 and Test Series

Identification of sharper lot of students.
This identification is
done by the batch faculties. This job could be done in a structured way. For
this task following steps should be followed.
Step I :A table should be
created in the format shown below:
S. No. 
Reg No. 
Name 
Discipline 
Percentage in 
Grads given by Faculty 




Grad 
12^{th} 
10^{th} 
QA 
DILR 
VA 
PD 
Veto 
Total A+ 
Total A+ (Out of QA/
DI/LR/ VA) 

























































Step II: All the faculty
of the batch should grade every student as A+ / A / B / C. If a faculty feels
that some particular student must be selected to sharper batch He/She can give
a veto to that student i.e. in the veto column faculty should sign. Here HODs
must explain the definition of A+ / A / B / C to the entire team as per the
following table:
Grade 
Objective parameter
(%ile in MAT) 
A+ 
He Can Score more than
95 
A 
He can score in the
range of 85 to 95 
B 
He can score in the range of 70 to 85 
C 
He can not score more
than 70 
Step III : Now operations
should collect such sheets from all the batches and select some students for
sharper batch. Selection criteria are as follows:
1. First set of student should be made
by the students getting 4 A+ and Veto
2. Then second set of students should be
selected who get 3 A+ in MA, IRA and VCA.
3. The third set should be identified
with 2 A+ in any of the two out of MA, IRA and VCA and A+ in PD or 1 or 2 A in
rest of the two subjects.
4. Fourth and last set could be formed
with the students getting 2 A+ in any of the two areas and 1 or 2 A in rest of
the subjects.
Now the batch / Batches
should be formed by keeping in mind the priority in the order of first to fourth
set. Now the decision lies on Academic and operations team of centers about the
optimum number of batches.
