Although both the exams are for getting into Bschools in India for post graduation but there is a huge difference between the two:
IIM Indore is one such B-school which values your previous academic marks a lot. Your graduation marks matter too. And the stream from which you graduated. You have a good score in class 12th but an average one in class 10th. See it is just not your acads but your work-ex if any, your extracurriculars matter too.
You'll still need a percentile somewhat above 98+ if you are a student of Commerce background. Being from tech. background furthermore makes it difficult for one to get in.

Hope it helps.
see it is not mandatory to have work experience to join 2 year mba program in sp jain, however if you opt for executive mba then work experience is necessary.
sp jain offers mba courses on Marketing, Operations, Information Management & Finance.
sp jain selection criteria is two types 1> profile based, 2> profile cum score based.
as per previous years cutoff cat overall percentile was 85. with 75 percentile cutoff in sectional. sp jain observes candidates based on their academic score, extracurricular activities, achievements and relevant work experience.
It basically depends upon from college to college and the criteria for short listing. But if you wish to make it to the top colleges of CAT it is advised to score very high percentage of marks in your class x and class xii.
Every year the percentage needed for shortlistment is changed by the college.
The overall shortlistment depends upon your performance in class x and xii , your grades in college , extra curricular activities and your work experience.
All the Best !!!?
