Hey Nikhil,

Hope you are doing well !

To answer your question, NO. All the students of premier B-schools in India do not have the above criteria. Though they are preferred, but what all the students have is a good profile, with good academics, and good co-curricular and extra-curricular.

Also, having work-ex is not mandatory, though it would help you is B-schools.

Hope my answer helped you. Please let me know in case of any further queries.

Hey Shivang,

Hope you are doing well !

To be honest, it seems that you have a decent profile, and obviously your active participation in sports is a boon in your Resume.

But your CAT score and GD-PI play a major part in the interview process.

Considering you score a 94+ percentile, and have a decent GD-PI round, I hope that you have good chances of converting MDI.

Hope my answer was helpful.

Wish you Best of Luck!

Hello Ram,

Hope you are doing well !

In answer to your question, I think that you have a pretty good chance to get in the top IIM's, and the premier B-schools in India. Though, your CAT score and your performance in GD-PI play a pretty important role in the process.

Other than that, I think that you have a pretty decent profile.

Hope my answer was helpful.

Wish you Best of Luck !
