does a canditate for mba after giving cat/mat/xat exam have to go for GD and PI to every private institute or do each private institute conduct GD and PI in some states?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 8th Oct, 2019
In short, yes. Each and every college has a different selection process and it is independant of each college. So, if you apply to say 10 colleges, you have to apply for each college Group discussion and personal intervuew process. The shortlisting process abd final merit list is separate for each College.

I want to do MBA in finance so should I give XAT and IIFT apart from CAT

Aptron Gurgaon 10th Oct, 2019

The practical value of a Bachelors or Master's degree is controversial for a Hadoop developer because few of the big data companies contracting for Hadoop developers demand a degree just to eliminate their pile of resumes.  Companies believe that university educational plans are excessively focused on theoretical aspects however being a Hadoop developer requires real world problem unraveling capabilities. For some of the specialized big data roles like that of a data scientist, companies prefer candidates who have completed PhD in a measurable or numerical discipline. In this way, in the event that you are from a Statistics, Physics or business examination foundation - you can definitely create a meaningful benchmark as a Hadoop Developer in the workplace by mastering Hadoop skills with real time hands-on projects.

what is expected cutoff of cat and xat ?

Ruchika Chauhan Expert 7th Oct, 2019

Hello

Cutoff is the minimum percentile a  candidate must obtain in order to qualify for the next round of selection process.

Cutoff depends on various factors such as:

  • Difficulty level of the exam
  • Total number of candidates appearing for the exam
  • Total number of seats, etc.


Also, the cutoff varies from college to college. So, it would be difficult to predict the exact cutoff. However, you can go through the link below and check the previous year CAT and XAT cutoff for reference-
