I got 90 percentile in XAT, bit my verbal percentile is 65. Should i apply for spjimr or not?

Sampriti Student Expert 18th Jan, 2020
SP Jain has already closed its registrations and are doing their profile based shortlisting which requires a minimum of 85 percentile in both CAT and XAT and they have already released their dates for the first round of interview process. And for score based shortlisting it requires a minimum of 98-99 percentile in both the exams. But you can surely check out some other colleges like

  • XIMB Bhubaneshwar
  • IMT Ghaziabad
  • Great Lakes Chennai
  • LIBA Chennai
  • GIM Goa
  • BIMTECH Noida and others.

These are also pretty good colleges and offer excellent placement opportunities.

Good Luck
