Shivika Tyagi 16th Feb, 2020
Hello,
For getting a call from SP Jain, you must score around 95 percentile in Cat. Although you must set your target for 95+ only so that you surely get a call from them. And after that you have to perform really well in GD and PI process. SP jain gives benefit to students with strong profile and work experience. So, try to build your profile.
Hope it helps you. Good luck
