Hi Wasim,

Yes, you can get admission if you do well in the entrance exams like CAT/XAT/X-GMAT and clear the cutoffs of the institute.

Good Luck!

If you have left your job, you should probably take admission as too long a drop will raise questions over your candidature.

Hope this answers your question!
