chances of bits pilani mba at xat 77.35 percentile

Soumya Kanta Sarkar 21st Jan, 2020

Hi Don Dev,

Congratulations on securing such a decent percentile in XAT, which is considered to be one of the toughest exams in India when it comes to management entrances. To answer your query, the cut off percentile of Bits Pilani (MBA) lies somewhat in the range of 75-80 percentile and it changes depending upon the number of applications and the relative percentile of the candidates. Depending on the trends, you have a high chance of getting a call for their GD/PI process which happens at the Pilani campus every year.

Now, there is something that you should know. Getting a call doesn’t ensure your admission into the college. Your chances of admission depends on the following factors:

  • Should have minimum 60 percent marks in the qualifying degree
  • Candidates appearing for the final year of Bachelor's degree/equivalent qualification examination in the year 2020
  • Students in final year of Degree should share in the form their percentage up to the Second Year/Last completed semester
  • All candidates should have taken either CAT 2019; XAT 2020 or GMAT exam

chances of converting liba chennai at xat 77.35 percentile ??(Gen catholic christian)Heard that liba provides reservation for Catholics.

Sampriti Student Expert 21st Jan, 2020

  • IIFM Bhopal

  • Alliance University Bangalore

These are pretty decent colleges and offer good academics and placements. They also have good reputation among recruiters and you can easily get an average compensation package of 6-7 lakhs in a reputed organization.
