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.
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
