Hello student. IIM rohtak has sent a mail stated above. So, there would not be any chance for you to get a call from the university any more. Really sorry. But donot worry. Try applying for other colleges. You will definitely get the admision in any of the good colleges.
Should I take admission into IIM for IPM or Symbiosis Pune for ba llb if I have been selected for both and have no particular interest?
Hello student bot BA LLB and BBA +MBA are reputed course but if you compare Symbiosis college with IIM you'll get to know that IIM Is more recommended by teachers and experts so I'll suggest you to go with IIM for IPM course.
IPM is also one of the best courses to get admission for after class 12 so if you've got selected then without any doubt you should go with IPM.
In case if you're not interested in purchasing your career in management and interest in pursuing law then you should get admission in Symbiosis.
