Although both the exams are for getting into Bschools in India for post graduation but there is a huge difference between the two:
Offers mba with fees 3.25 lacs (seats 240) & pgdm with fees 5.94 lacs (seats 180). The avg package you get is 6-7 lacs & highest went till 12-13 lacs.
Offers mba with fees around 4 lacs. The avg package you can get is 4.5 lacs and highest goes till 12.5 lacs.
Its ghaziabad is better option as the ROi is better and the reviews of students are inclined towards this college.
I hope this helps.
If you consider last year cutoffs then yes you can get a call for GDPI. Getting admission is fully dependent on how to perform in your GDPI.
Last to last year the last cutoffs was around 87 so i think there is a chance for you.
All the best for your GDPI.
