i got 63.82 NTA score in CMAT with total 167 marks. Is there any chance to get admission in anna university chennai?

ayush mishra 15th Feb, 2020

Nischal, the chances of getting a call from any B-School, Anna University in your case, also depends on your graduation credentials, class 12 scores, gender diversity criteria of the institution etc. Based on your score and the previous year minimum calling score and percentile consideration, you have a good chance to get a call from Anna University Chennai as the previous year minimum calling score for the institution was 100.0, so going by previous year trends, it is a big possibility.
