what can i do after gmat result. is toefl exam occur after gmat result? can i have to apply for visa after gmat result?

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 5th Oct, 2019

hello aspirant,

see you can give toefel exam any time. because almost every month toefel exam has slot. you need to just prepare yourself. and toefel exam has no link with gmat exam. you need to apply separately for toefel as it is a english language proficiency test. you can apply for visa after gmat exam. before applying do multiple checking of eligibility criteria and marks requirement, visa permit everything. it would be best if you take some professional help. please search in your city if there is any professional who help with visa application process.


Can I apply for MBA in Poland, Germany and london without GMAT score but I do clear IELTS exam is it possible or not ?

siddhant dhruv Student Expert 4th Oct, 2019

Dear aspirant ,

In some colleges and universities for MBA , a student applying for MBA outside the country have to give GMAT exam . Students applying for MBA in England have to give GMAT exam , it is compulsory . However , there are some universities in England in which it is not compulsory to give GMAT exam  instead of it students having a work experience for more than 2 years can apply directly for MBA program . In Germany most universities accept TOEFL score and not GMAT score , there are universities which accept both TOEFL and GMAT score .  In Poland all types of entrance exams are accepted like TOEFL , IELTS and GMAT . So  for betterment of you , you should first choose a country for which you want to study MBA and then second look at the eligibility criteria at different universities and according to that give a appropriate entrance exam . Also you can do is that choose a university of that country and then check which entrance exams for MBA they accept .

Hope it helps.

I am GEM with 91% in 10th, 89.60% in 12th and 69.55% in Graduation (BE). Passed CFA Level 1. 8 months of work-ex. How much should I get in CAT/XAT/GMAT/NMAT to get into one of the top 25 b-school?

Papiya Mazumder 27th Sep, 2019


As per your requirement, i would say that as mentioned above your educational details, you need to be at your very best in each step.

First stage is CAT

In which if you are a general candidate you will have to get atleast 95.5(Cutoff changes every year) to get call from New and Baby IIM.

Coming to Old IIM(BLACKI) many things are considered

10,12, Graduation score .

Work experience.

Gender ( For female Candidates)/Academic diversity (For Non Engg)

Weightage given to above mentioned criteria is different in every college,you can visit the college website to get the details.

So having work experience is always an advantage but like I said the weightage varies.

Final stage.

WAT/PI Stage

The weightage for WAT/PI is usually high in Old IIM close to 50%.

Personal Interview is the one that either make it or break it.

So PI usually decides whether you will get selected or not.

For exact details you can visit the IIM website and check the criteria which will have all the details.

Good luck
