in 10th-64%, 12th-70%, Graduation-50%, cat-85% can I get call from spjimr, Mumbai

Rehan Alam Student Expert 7th Nov, 2019

Dear aspirant,

With your graduation score and 10th score you might not be able to get a call from SPJIMR, and for that matter you will not be able to get any calls from the colleges which selects candidates on their previous academic performance.

Moreover, most of the recruiters and the B Schools have the minimum marks requirement to be 60% throughout.

Hope this helps. Thank you.

10/12/Grad: 95/89.9/80 with no work experience or versatile extra-curricular profile as such. What are the chances of getting an early interview call from SPJIMR? (given that I cross the 85 percentile mark in CAT)

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 16th Oct, 2019

SPIJMR considers the following factors for their selection process:

  • Overall Profile
  • Academic background
  • Work experience
  • Entrance scores
  • Versatility and achievements

Now work experience is not mandatory for this programme. Versatility does matter but if you can make atleast 90 percentile in CAT, you should  be able to get into the first list with your academic profile.

Which is best sp jain or christ University bangalore in terms of faculty and ROI.

Hello Dipankar Ganguli

Both of these colleges, SP Jain University and Christ University, Bangalore are good but I would suggest you to go for Christ University, Bangalore because Christ University have better placement cell and the faculty there is good with better exposure.

Christ University is a deemed private university. It is the first indigenous Syrian Catholic religious congregation in India. The University is specifically known for its undergraduate courses and has ranked among the top ten for UG courses in surveys done by the India Today group. Every year, more than 16000 students enroll in various UG and PG programs offered at Christ University.

Hope it helps you.
