It will enable us to make our training more “Learner Centric” and will give us an opportunity to revamp the curriculum as per the Industry requirements.”

You can get a call from Welingkar if you got more than 80 percentile in CMAT just go and apply last date for filling form is 14th feb, One thing that I am going to tell you that in this year Welingkar will not be taking students for PGDM on the basis of CET scores so you all CMAT qualified students have a very good chance this year to convert Welingkar easily. Just work for your GD and PI preperation since it matters a lot for selection in Welingkar.
I hope the above information is beneficial for you.

as your query is you want to know that whether there is any concept of interview after cracking CET for wellinkar college in Mumbai.
I would like to tell you in all of the colleges there is no process of interview irrespective to that there is a counselling process based on your rank and your details provided by you and thereafter it is taken under the consideration of the administrative and admission cell of the college that whether you are eligible to take admission on not but at last there is no such concept of interview.
For applying for MMS, you need to clear the following aptitude tests and apply to the colleges of your choice-
1. MAH-CET/CMAT(Common Management Aptitude Test).
2. CAT( Conducted by IIMS)/JMET(conducted by IITs)/MAT(conducted by AIMA)/ XAT(conducted by XLRI)/ATMA(conducted by AIMS).
Hi Mahesh, the cutoff varies every year based on various factors like number of test takers, number of seats available, difficulty level of exams etc. However going by the previous year cutoffs, there are high chances for Welingkar as their cutoff is around 97 percentile. The chances for Sydneham is like having good to better chances, but it is not having high chances for this percentile.
