its true that iims and some of other top ranked institute shortlisted candidates as per their academic record and cat or any other management aptitude test score. see right now which of institute name you have mentioned is also comes under tier 1 college. now you need to focus on your presentation skills, communication approach to get shortlisted in final rounds. so keep calm and focus on your goal, I think you will surely crack it.
Symbiosis is also a great college for doing PGDM since it it a one of the tier 1 college but if you want to drop a year for converting IIM than you can do it but remember one thing you should also do something in that one year apart from preparing like any certificate course (Digital Marketing, Advance excel) or work in any social organisation like NGO which not only makes your profile stronger but also gives you an upper hand during the interviews when interviewer ask you about your year gap, So try to do any of these thing apart from preparing.
I hope the above information is beneficial for you.
All the best.
94.2 percentile 93;89; 65 in10' 12 and btech
As you have secured a good percentile score in SNAP exam. As you have secured only 95.8 percentile in SNAP you would only get call from Symbiosis institutes. On the percentile secured by you, you have a chance to get good colleges. The colleges you get are:
Symbiosis Institute of business, Hyderabad-- MBA Course
SIHS Pune --- MBA IN hospital management
SSSS Pune--- MBA in sports management
these are the colleges, from which you would get a call on the basis of your SNAP percentile.
Aashvi, some colleges that accept a score of 74.62 percentile have been listed here:
Also please note that you can get a call from any of these institutions only if you had applied for it during the registration period.
SIIB has its centre in Pune not in Bangalore. It requires at least 93 percentile to get a call from SIIB Pune. So I am sorry but you will not be able to get a call from them.
And regarding your percentile, it means that your performance was better than 74.62% of the candidates appearing in the exam. This year there was a drastic change in the score vs percentile data, as it depends on the difficulty level of the question paper and relative performance of the appearing candidates. So it is more accurate to judge your performance on the basis of the percentile, not the SNAP score. Although the percentile this year has decreased compared to previous years' percentile, for a given SNAP score.
