Now that you know which B-schools to apply for based on the percentile secured by you, know the next steps to follow.

 

Choose the right B-School – The above-listed B-schools come under the Tier two or Tier three category. Rather than applying or accepting offers from any B-School, you must select the institute by considering various factors such as recognition, programme details, fee, placement details or ROI factor among others. Do proper research about the institute before taking the final decision.

 

Prepare for the selection rounds – Know the selection procedure of the B-schools you are applying for. While majority of the top league B-schools have replaced Group Discussion (GD) with Writing Ability Test (WAT), several mid rung institutes still conduct GD. Hence, keep yourself informed about the selection rounds and prepare yourself well to perform well and around 50 per cent weightage is assigned to the Personal Appearance rounds.

 

Appear in state level and other national level entrance exams – So what you have not been able to score well in a competitive test like CAT? Tests like MAT and ATMA are conducted throughout the year. If you have secured 70 to 80 percentile in CAT, with a better preparation, you will be able to secure around 90 percentile in MAT or ATMA. The state-level exams like MAH CETTANCET, APICET, TSICET etc. You may plan to appear in these exams as well to take admission in one of the top participating institutes.
