Sir, After completed Bsc agriculture from private university I an eligible for getting admission in Institute of rural management Anand (IRMA) in PGDM ( RM ).
Obviously you can do that. According to the official website of IRMA , any student graduated with any discipline can apply if he/she has a minimum education of 15 years (i.e., a bachelors degree) & 50% or above marks in graduation or corresponding CGPA (for sc/st its 45%). Also the students of final year can apply.
I hope my answer helps you. Wish you all the very best for your future endeavors!
my waiting list no is 65 in general category may i get admission in irma
With this waiting list chances are pretty less because if you consider previous 5 years trend then the students having waiting list under 30-35 is considered safe.
Last to last year 2-3 students got with 40-45 waiting list.
As you have mentioned that your's is 65 then i think chances are nil.
For more info: https://bschool.careers360.com/articles/irmasat-cutoff
i got 77percentile in XAT. Will i get a call from XIME,SOMAIYYA AND IRMA
Yes you will get a call from XIME as the cutoff percentile for the XIME is 75 percentile and there are less of you getting call from IRMA as the percentile is around 80% for IRMA.
So you have chances in XIME and a very few chances in IRMA.
And same for Somaiya you need 80 above cutoff.
Best of luck
