It may not matter much as before 10th ,12th marks ,your undergraduate degree comes and some kind of work experience you had probably done before joining MBA . It may sometimes depends on the specific college and their norms. Do check the specific college criterias you are applying for before registration.

i have a 9 cgpa(mech) from a reputed college and i am preparing to score my max in gmat but my board marks are low with 68% and math marks is 47.i cannot afford the fees but for very few i can,will taking mba from any reputed foreign unv and scholar ships related to it be affected due to board marks
Well any university abroad tries to select the students who are among the best according to their set guidelines and brings something to their department. Their application review process is very holistic and they try to see everything from academics to non academic to recommendations to test scores to your personal statement. If one part is weak then you need to make the other parts of your application as strong as possible to compensate for the lower part. As long as your application is great overall with a bit of up and downs, you will be able to get in.
I hope my answer helps.
All the best.
what is the eligibility critwria for gre/gmat/gate. (in the sense of class 12 marks) and will gate scores be considered in foreign universities
Talking with reference to Class 12th Marks,there's no such criteria in GRE/GMAT exams.All you'll need is a valid GRE/GMAT score that'll help you get a better college/University in foreign.But if you'll talk of GATE,since it's an Engineering Aptitude test,it's score is valid in every Indian Institutes & a selected lists of foreign universities also considers admission based on your GATE score, which include National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore and Technical University of Munich and RWTH Aachen in Germany.
im in 1st year bba . how can i start my prepartion for cat and gmat togethen ?? when should i start , how should i aproach, and most importantly how do prepare for both at the same time ?? what should i do and dont
see to prepare a competitive exam you must be really dedicated and must have a decent routine to maintain your work. however besides your bachelors course and college curriculum you may only invested 3-4 hours a day to prepare for exams like CAT, mat cmat etc. however the syllabus for each of the exams is quite similar to the syllabus but I would suggest you to focus on CAT, since cat score is accepted in most of the Indian Institute. first of all go through the sample syllabus and some of the previous years papers. questions makes from english, logical and quantitative aptitude, reasoning. so you have to prepare the all the sections since sectional cutoff is required for college admission. so from now on dont make tension and try to relax and focus on your studies. another main thing is you have to practice mock questions. now a days various online platform available where you may purchase and give free test.
hope it would help.
