Can a student who has secured more than 50 % in Honours ( 3rd year ) in Graduation, from English Medium, but overall less than 50 % is eligible to apply for IBSAT 2019 ? Please reply. Thank you.

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 8th Nov, 2019

Dear Harsh, to be eligible for IBSAT, you should have secured a minimum aggregate of 50% in your Graduation. This aggregate is calculated for all the 3 years and not for a single year. Please visit our page for more information: https://bschool.careers360.com/articles/ibsat-eligibility-criteria

Going by this, if you have aggregate less than 50%, you cannot appear for IBSAT though your final year aggregate is more than 50%.


I scored in Xth 46 and XIIth 60 and graduation 58 can I get a call form ibs school at this academic record because I am preparing for IBSAT exam.

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 5th Nov, 2019


chances are really less as your academic profile is not satisfactory. you have only first division marks in 12 th exam. how ever if your IBSAT score is really excellent like if you able to attempt more than 90 percentage of questions correctly, you may get calls.


without any GD and PI can i get Admission in IBS after taking IBSAT..?

Shareef 29th Oct, 2019
No,no business school cooperate a student GD and PI. It's a basic step for getting admission in IBS.
Don't be so tensed about it. It's just a basis for testing your knowledge. GD will be of testing your skills and PI will be about you.
You may get Admission with GD and PI but those schools aren't well reputed. So, it's best to take admission in best IBS schools and make a great career.
Hope this was informative in clearing your doubt
