Questions related to IBSAT
i got 77.007 percentile in ibsat and ive been shortlisted for ibs bangalore campus. with this percentile can i get ibs hyderbad? ive kept the campus tranfer mail to the admission team.
I hope you are doing good .As per your query, I am sorry to tell you that once you are shortlisted , it would be very difficult to change of campus. Shortlisting of all campuses is done almost at same time . So if they changed your seats to other campus, then vacant seat will be wasted and that will be their loss of fees.However, you can give a try with a geniune reason and may be change your seats if someone else(very rare chane but you can try)
Hope you found this answer helpful. Good luck for your future
i got 77 percentile in ibsat, i want to tranferr my campus from ibs bangalore to ibs hyderbad ,is it possible?
Your marks is quite good in IBSAT examination. It's mainly higher education entrance examination.
Campus changing is possible. If you stay nearby the ibs campus. But i would suggest you to visit the campus in physically and request them, I'm sure, they will help you in change of the campus or ask the admission counsellor of IBS. I think the admission counsellor will help you out from this.
All the best.
ive been shortlisted for ibs bangalore. so i want to know the full info about it, is it a good b school or not?
