KJ Somaiya requires a minimum of 85 percentile for both CAT and XAT. There's no different cutoff for different categories so anyone who wants to apply for the college has to score a minimum of 85 percentile. But you can definitely apply for Welingkar Mumbai and Bangalore campuses as the shortlisting for PGDM HCM is completely profile based. The fees for Welingkar is nearly 11 lakhs and the average compensation package offered for Human Resources is 6-7 lakhs. The last date to apply for Welingkar is 14th February 2020. But you have a decent score so you should check some other good colleges also like
  • XIME Bangalore (fees = 10 lakhs)
  • XISS Ranchi (8 lakhs)
  • Praxis Kolkata (4.4 lakhs)
  • Great Lakes Gurgaon (11.76 lakhs)
  • IMT Hyderabad (12 lakhs)
  • NL Dalmia Mumbai (9.3 lakhs)
  • SIES Mumbai (7.9 lakhs)
  • NDIM New Delhi (9.3 lakhs)

All of them are decent colleges in terms of both academics and placements and you can easily get an average compensation package of around 6-7 lakhs.

And if you want to pursue Human Resource Management and build a good career in that then XISS would be a great option which will provide you great returns on investment. The average compensation package offered for HR is nearly 9-10 lakhs.

Good Luck
You have a pretty decent XAT percentile but KJ Somaiya Institute of Management Studies and Research requires a minimum of 85 percentile in both CAT and XAT exams. The Institute considers only the overall percentile. So it may be a little difficult for you to get a call. But you can still get some very good colleges with your XAT scores like
  • IIFM Bhopal
  • XIME Bangalore
  • IFMR Chennai
  • IMT Nagpur and Hyderabad
  • Prin LN Welingkar Institute of Management Development and Research
  • Christ University Bangalore
  • Great Lakes Gurgaon and others.

These colleges will also offer you good placement opportunities and good academics and you must try to attend as many interview processes as possible to get enough options to choose from.

Good Luck
