Hello aspirant, I hope you are doing good.
If you have got 97 percentile in XAT , that's quite good percentile and you have a chances to get calls from XLRI .
There is gap between your 12th and graduation which is not a big deal because many of them ahve this issue.
But make sure to have a genuine and relevant information on why you have these much years gap.
I hope this helps.
The work experience weightage with respect to the score is comparatively less so you need to first focus on securing good score. When it comes to work experience it will bore you benefit if it is in some relevant field such as Finance consulting agencies else it won't be much beneficial for you.
its true that iims and some of other top ranked institute shortlisted candidates as per their academic record and cat or any other management aptitude test score. see right now which of institute name you have mentioned is also comes under tier 1 college. now you need to focus on your presentation skills, communication approach to get shortlisted in final rounds. so keep calm and focus on your goal, I think you will surely crack it.
IMI Bhubhneswar is a good college and you will be able to get a call letter from the college if you have secured 60 percentile in any of the mba entrance exam. However the college does not offer good ROI. The college placement scenario is good. companies like Outlook magazine, Byju's, Jaro Education, ICICI bank, Varite, Executive B. School visit the collge for final placement. Average placement package is 6.5lpa to 11 LPA. For SIP the range of stipend for SIP is 7,500 to 25000 p. m. The ambiance at IMI Bhubaneswar offers a unique and complete learning experience with good infrastructure facilities.
