It is highly likely that you'll get in. But again,you can't be 100 percent sure, until you are in the selected candidates. But, usually for the BBA course, the waiting list do gets clear to some extent, with your rank being 1 in the waiting list, you can expect to get in.
Hi what are my chances of getting in symbiosis pune bba my waiting list no is 4
Symbiosis University is a really good university in terms of research and academics, so firstly your choice is good. Speaking of admission, if they have given you a waiting number and it is as close as 4, I would wait for some time as there might be students leaving for other universities so your chances of getting in will be good. They will either call you or email you if you get selected so don't worry.
