Questions related to XIMB Bhubaneswar

Have a question related to XIMB Bhubaneswar ?

Hello,


The average cutoff at XIMB is around 91 percentile while the NMAT cutoff is also above 90 percentile, so both the entrance exams have a competitive selection process. The good news is that XIMB accepts NMAT scores, which means you have a great opportunity to secure admission into these colleges with both the scores.


hope this helps,

Thank you

Let me tell the this thing that if you want to take admission in MBA than the eligibility for that is pass with 55% aggregate marks in Bachelor’s degree (any discipline) or equivalent, subject to qualifying LPUNEST or CAT or MAT or XAT or NMAT or CMAT and Interview Or Completed Company Secretary (CS) from Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI), subject to qualifying Interview Or Completed Chartered Accountancy (CA) from Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), subject to qualifying Interview Or Completed Cost & Management Accountancy (CMA) from Institute of Cost Accountants of India (ICAI)., subject to qualifying Interview, you need to fulfil this eligibility criteria for taking admission in LPU.

Dear Aspirant,

You can apply for XIMB and XLRI for MBA. However, both of these colleges do not accept MAT scores. XIMB accepts CAT, XAT, NMAT and X-GMT scores. XLRI accepts only XAT scores. So you have to give these exams and clear their cutoffs to get into these two B-Schools.

Hi Aspirant,

Hope you are doing great as per the question asked by you,as there is no official dates regarding second waitlist movements as if there are any seats left or vacant then next waitlist comes. It totally depends upon number of seats or filled or vacant during the process. You are advised to wait patiently for the next cutoffs.

Hope you found this answer useful. Stay motivated stay positive.

All the best!
