Got 80 percentile in mat. I live in delhi , should I go for FIIB delhi or should look colleges in Pune like pibm & iims pune?
FIIB Delhi and IIMs Pune is at par. You can easily get these colleges without any much hindrance. If you want to stay in Delhi only then you can opt FIIB as there i snot much difference between these colleges.
Scopes are also same in fact a little more in FIIB.
But if you want any other college in Delhi with this percentile , then you can try :
VIPS-TC-Delhi School of Business Delhi
Jagan Institute of Management
These 3 colleges are difficult to get but not impossible. It's 70-30 chance.
All the best!!
I scored 693 in mat feb 2020, do i have any chances of getting pumba or simsree?
Can you mention your percentile so that it will be helpful for us to guide you
As Simsree and Pumba admission process is through CET marks for HU And OHU candidates, so MAT score will be considered as All India Quota
Hence the cut off for All India Quota is more than CET cut off
Hope this helps
