I got 45% in 10th, 49% in 12th, 65% in graduaction, if i get 220 in NMAT and perform good in GDPI, would my seat be secured in NMIMS mumbai?
I hope you are doing good. I would like to tell you that nmat have sectional cutt off procedure too which means you should marks greater than cut off each section which is 75+ in each section . In overall cut off, your score is very good and you holds high chances of getting a call. For getting name in merit list , academics profile is also considered which is low in your case as your marks are not even 60percent in 10+2. I would suggest you to prepare very hard for gd and pi and rest leave on your destiny

I m really in baffled state, theres nowhere mentioned in msu, baroda s brochure about CMAT for bba admission. But one of your expert told me it is required with certain percentile. So can you pls give more information regarding CMAT, its preparations and subjects included?
CMAT stands for Common Management Admission Test and is conducted to get admission in various management programmes. It is purely done for admissions in master programmes and not for BBA. Whereas admission for bba in MSU, Baroda is done through an entrance followed by an interview both of which is conducted by the college itself . You need to apply for it online in their official website. The minimum eligibility criteria for the same is to have atleast 50% aggregate in your 12th.
I hope this helps.

After the authorization error, I got to see my result yesterday but the registration dates for WAT/PI is over. Now they are saying that nothing can be done. How am I supposed to pay for the technical glitch when I am not at fault. Please help and tell me what to do as I am shortlisted for MBA(CM)Hyd
Hello student in this case surely you'll get the proper resolution from institution as it's not your fault. But as it's upto college who took the final decision if you wish you can take this to court and file a legal suit because it's about your academic year.
