how can I get admission in XLRI JAMSHEDPUR
Hope you're doing well.
XLRI Jamshedpur conducts its own entrance exam called XAT-Xavier aptitude test, which is followed by an interview and GD.
If you qualify it with a good percentile, you will get a call from the institute for the next step, the interview. However, the selection depends on many factors :- your academic history and background, number of candidates for the exam, etc. You need to have a strong academic background for selections here. It is one of the top B-schools in India.
Subjects to cover for XAT:-
1. Logical reasoning
2. Quantitative aptitude
3. Verbal and nonverbal ability
4. Data interpretation
There are various books available for XAT preparation. You can refer to them. And, don't forget to solve last 10 years' question papers for practice.
All the best:)
Hii, i just want to know that could i get in between fms or xlri . i am from non-engineering background and i have score in 10th is 71 and in 12th is 53 and cat score is 95 percentile . mostly i want to go fms , could i get it ?
Sorry to say but the academic score you have mentioned is pretty low. And as you have not specified your category I am considering it to be Open category and I am answering according to it. The FMS cut off for general category usually ranges from 97 and above percentile. So I guess it might be difficult for you to get a call from FMS. As far as XLRI is concerned, you will have to quality XAT, conducted by the college itself, to be eligible for admission.
Hope that helps.
Can you tell me how much percentile required to get into SP Jain, NITIE Mumbai, and XLRI? Is there any chance of mine getting into an IIMs or any other goverment colleges if yes my academic records are X - 60.8% , XII - 63.6% And UG - 72.77% .
Basically to get admission in top IIM'S you will have to get at last 99 percentile or above, still there is no guarantee that you will achieve it.
Yop IIM's follows two different set of rules. One for Initial calling and otehr for Final Selection. For Initial calling they give 35%-40% weightage to your previous credentials and 60 to 65 to CAT score.
For Final calling they give 10% -20% only and remaining is given to GD, PI and CAT score.
For XLRI you will have to XAT. For SP Jain you need 90-92.
All the best!!
I got 91%/58%/62% in 10th,12th and graduation respectively. I am from SC category. can it be possible to convert admission into any of iims, fms and xlri? how much i will get from 5% of my 12th with 58% marks?
IIms. XLRI and FMS are the top management colleges of India which provide approx 90% campus placement. Most of the students are willing to get admission in these college as these are the best. IIMs are taking students from CAT and XLRI and FMS take the students from their own entrance exam.
Getting admission in management college not only depends on your entrance exam results. It comprises of different curricular activities like Group Discussion, Personal Interview and some colleges also set some points on 10, 12 and graduation marks of the students.
As your 12th and graduation marks are no so strong but you can still get admission in these college, Firstly you have to crack their entrance exam so that they allow you to appear in GD and PI. If you have good speaking as well as thinking skill then you definitely cracks their GD and PI. So don't panic for your less marks in 12th and Graduation. Never loose your hope.
