Today every single student who is a graduate wants to seek admission for MBA courses particularly the IIMs, XLRI or any other top Bschools in India. However this is not possible that every candidate who is appearing in CAT will be able to fetch admission in them.

One of the colleges we are talking about is the Adani Institute of Infrastructure Management. While having an interview with the director all the necessary information about the institute like motto(vision and mission), admission process, infrastructure, institute’s collaboration and many other information are discussed.

neet ug cut off for aiim and jipmer 2020 ant it can depend on cast plz tell me
Sakshi, Cut offs change every year depending on various factors such as no.of Candidates appearing for the exam, no.of Candidates qualified, top NEET score and difficulty of the exam. And yes your Category also plays an important role. Because for qualifying in NEET, if you belong to General Category, you need to score atleast 50 percentile of the top NEET score and it is 40 percentile for OBC,SC,ST. Now AIIMS and JIPMER will conduct the admissions through NEET score through All India Counselling and so the cut offs are going to be higher. If you belong to General Category, you will need anything between 625-675 and if you belong to Reserved Categories, you will atleast need 625. As this is the first year that AIIMS and JIPMER will be conducting admissions through NEET score, the cut offs mentioned here might differ either by a small or a larger margin.
i belong to MBC category.... how much should i aiim for to get mbbs seat in tamil nadu for sure under state quota?
So the reserved seats for any MBC category is 20% and the cutoff for 2019 fir this category was around 133-120. Which means the percentile would be in 40th.
Therefore,u might try and score something around the above mentioned marks, however, prepare to the best of your abilities as the cutoff changes every year collectively and hence one cannot totally rely on the previous year's cutoff.

With this rank the chances seem to be less getting a seat in AIIMS Institutes. Since it is very late to answer your query, I hope you have also checked AIIMS seat allotment.
