What is cut off of great lakes Gurgaon for general ??

Ruchika Chauhan Expert 10th Oct, 2019


There is no fixed cutoff for admission and any minimum scores are decided after the completion of the application process and review of the overall applicant pool.
The cutoff may vary every year. According to the previous year cutoff trend, a 90+ percentile in XAT/CAT, 600+ score in GMAT would be considered suitable subject to meeting other criteria.
This is just an indicative score for reference.

Good Luck!

ag 19th Mar, 2019

Hello Rishi,

BOth college are new and backed by two well known brand i.e. IMT & GLIM.You should choose on factors such as placements,faculty,fee,batch size, alumni network and recognization.

GLIM :(It is a 1 year program and requires 2 yrs experience)

Fee : 14,84,000 lac(including hostel,mess and etc)

Placement: Avg 11.14 lac ctc Highest !8 lac ctc

Batch size : 60 seats

IMT Nagpur : (2 years course freshers can also apply)

Fee : 12,10,000 (Including hostel mess and etc)

Placements : Avg 7.5 lac Highest 12.5 lac

Batch Size : 250 to 300 seats

As we consider above statistics I will suggest you to take GLIM Gurgoan PGPM as batch size is small,Return on investment is high.If batch size is too big then it become difficult to place all students on zer placement day.So choose wisely considering above facts.

Hope I cleared your doubt.All the best for future endeavor
