I filled a common application form for all 4 IMTs and before the declaration of CMAT results I got a call from IMT Dubai. Now after the CMAT results in which I got 84 percentile I updated my scores in my application form. So will I get a call letter separately for IMT Nagpur and Hyderabad?

Sampriti Student Expert 9th Feb, 2020
You'll receive another email from the Nagpur and Hyderabad campuses. The call you got for IMT Dubai may be based on your CAT scores but once you updated your CMAT scores you'll receive another call letter for both Nagpur and Hyderabad campuses. The minimum CMAT percentile required for IMT Nagpur is 80 and that for IMT Hyderabad is a score of 150. Since you fulfil that criteria you'll receive a call from both the campuses in a single email. The GE/PI rounds of all the IMT campuses except Ghaziabad takes place together. So if you get a call from all the 3 campuses and attend the selection process, they'll allot you a campus among the three based on your performance in the GE/PI rounds.

Good Luck

I filled a common application form for all 4 IMTs and I received a call from IMT Dubai now after the declaration of CMAT results (I scored 84 percentile) will I receive a call differently for IMT Nagpur and Hyderabad?

Pranav Mishra 9th Feb, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

Last time same thing has happened to me also, I have also got a call letter from IMT DUBAI but don't take tension since IMT has a common admission for all campuses so you will have a chance to give your personal interview for all campuses with that call letter, However your selection will be based on your marks in competitive exam you have given, Last year IMT NAGPUR and HYDERABAD has increased their CMAT cutoff to 90 percentile but since the paper was tougher than the last year, So there is a chance for cutoff going low this year.

I hope the above information is beneficial for you.

All the best.


Is IBS better than IMT colleges for mba

KUNAL LANJEWAR 4th Feb, 2020


The IBS, Hyderabad and IMT Ghaziabad, both are well renowned colleges in the field of management. The IBS is ranked 8th in best institutes for management, whereas the IMT is ranked 6th.

Talking about the reviews and rating, the IMT has obtained a bit better reviews and rating than IBS. The faculty and facility, both are good in both colleges, but the reviews of students and experts shows more positive response for IMT.

Talking about placements, various well renowned MNCs and Other popular companies visit its campus for recruitment. Both the institutes show a positive placement percentage. But the median package offered in IBS is INR 7.32 Lakhs per annum and in IMT is INR 11.60 Lakhs per annum.

So, if you are thinking to pursue management course in either IBS or IMT then you can choose anyone of it. But most preferably, you should go with IMT Ghaziabad.

Best Wishes.


I have 67.93 percentile in xat can I get seat in imt hyderbad or nagpur

Sampriti Student Expert 28th Jan, 2020
The minimum XAT percentile required for IMT Nagpur is 80 percentile and that for the Hyderabad campus it is 70 percentile. So you may not get a call from either of these campuses but you'll get a call from the Dubai campus if you've applied for IMT.

Moreover you can also check out these colleges with your XAT scores
  • IPE Hyderabad
  • ITM Navi Mumbai
  • NDIM New Delhi
  • Great Lakes Gurgaon campus
  • Alliance Bangalore
  • Prin LN Welingkar Institute of Management Development and Research Bangalore campus
  • Praxis Kolkata and others.

All these colleges are decent and the placements there are more or less similar to IMT Hyderabad with an average compensation package offered is 5-6 lakhs. But they have a strong alumni base which can help you in future growth.

Good Luck

Hello I have got 96.802 percentile in XAT2020 Quantitative-84.172 VA&LR-99.389 DM-79.200 I have applied for 4colleges 1)Great lakes 2)IMT 3) LIBA 4) KJ SOUMAYA I want to know whether any other good colleges where I can apply? and also would I get any call from institutions other than thelisted above

Soumya Kanta Sarkar 28th Jan, 2020

Hi Rishabh,

First of all, I would like to congratulate you on securing such an awesome percentile. XAT is one of the toughest exams in India and no doubt you have aced it perfectly. XAT is such an exam which is accepted by majority of the Indian B-Schools and some very good ones too. I will list down some of the B-Schools that you can expect a call from and their average package:


Average Package(in LPA)















These are some of the good B-Schools in the country. Apart from that, you can also get a call from:


Average Package(in LPA)





To get a call, you must have to fill up their form, either at the time of exam form fill up or separately. After this you will be called for:

  • Group Discussion
  • Case Discussions
  • Personal Interview

Though GD and PI  will be compulsory, few of the colleges conduct Case Discussions and Written Ability Test.

Getting a call from these B-Schools would not ensure your admission into them as several factors are taken into consideration before taking a student into a B-School, such as:

  • Academic and ExtraCurricular achievements
  • Relevant work experience
  • Performance in GD/WAT/PI process

I hope I have been able to solve your query. Do write to us if you need any more information and we will be happy to help you out. All the best!!!
