Hello Everyone, I am a hotel Management Graduate and currently pursuing PGPMWE from IIM Raipur. As I studied a bit of statistics here, it really drew my attention. Now i really wanted to give the JAM exam and pursue MSc. Am I eligible to go ahead?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 1st Oct, 2019

Dear Rahul, you mentioned that you are a Hotel Management Graduate but haven't mentioned your aggregate in Bachelor's degree. If you belong to General Category or OBC, you should secure a minimum aggregate of 55% and it is 50% for SC,ST,PWD Categories. Now for being eligible for M.Sc Statistics, you should have studied Statistics atleast for 2 years in your Bachelor's degree. Now PGPMWE is a Post Graduation course and that is not considered while evaluating your eligiblity criterIa. So unfortunately, even if you scored the aggregate required against your Category, if you haven't studied Statistics in your Bachelor's degree, you are not eligible for JAM 2020.

What are my chances of getting into top IIMs or the new IIMs. I have 97% in Xth, 93% in XIIth and 59% in UG. Is my UG percent a reason for concern? Except A,B what all IIMs do I have a chance at?

Ashish pal Student Expert 16th Sep, 2019

Hello dear aspirant.

You are having fair chances of getting a good IIM.

You past score is not going to matter that much. Now you have to appear in CAT exam and after that if you qualify that you will be having a written ability test then after personal interview. This procedure makes your merit so try to score as much as you can.

Ok good luck
