Both the SAT and the MAT exams that you have taken are strictly percentile based.
Applicants appeared for the exams would have got more percentile that yours and that would be the reason for your rejection.
However you can take the exam in the next session and try scoring a percentile of more than 85 which may be a better chance to get qualified.
Best of luck.
A score of minimum 600 is a valid score to get a call from NIT hamirpur for mba admissions.
Although it also depends upon the pool of candidates applying and your overall profile is also taken into consideration.
All the best.
The cutoff for IEM Kolkata is 60%, the infrastructure is good and basic facilities are provided. Regarding placement record almost every student is placed and there is 100% placement, but the package offered is not good. Average salary package offered is as low as 5 LPA.
On the other hand Doon Business School, the infrastructure is average but good facilities are provided. Placement record of college is good with about 90% of the students getting placed and package ranges from 5 to 15 LPA.
So personally I think Doon business school is better
