i have got 90 in 10th and 47 in 12th and 90 in graduation can i get into fms delhi
The criteria for FMS Delhi is:
CAT - 60%
10th and 12th - 10%
PI and extempore - 15 and 5% respectively
There is also a diversity factor but I am not sure of it.
However FMS Delhi is quiet tough to get in. You must remember that. More than these, you will need at least a 99.8%ile at CAT for admission there.
Most sudents prefer FMS for better ROI.
Always remember FMS never evaluates you on your past. It's how you perform on CAT and the day of PI and extempore.
Hope this helps!
