Can you tell me how much percentile required to get into SP Jain, NITIE Mumbai, and XLRI? Is there any chance of mine getting into an IIMs or any other goverment colleges if yes my academic records are X - 60.8% , XII - 63.6% And UG - 72.77% .
Basically to get admission in top IIM'S you will have to get at last 99 percentile or above, still there is no guarantee that you will achieve it.

I am pursuing my BBA how much percentile i have to score in CAT to get top tier colleges like IIMs or FMS or sp jain? And i am from General category.
Percentile that you should score in CAT exam in order to get top business School depends upon your percentage in bachelor or academic record because for the final admission in the top business school your overall record will be seen so if your percentage in bachelor and your intermediate is good enough then you can consider your good chances of admission with 96 or more percentile, if you don't have good enough record in your academics then you will have to score more than 99 percentile to get into top business school.
Best of luck.
