Chances of conversion of spjimr information management waitlist 28?

Shiksha 13th Mar, 2020


As you have decent chances to convert as per the previous waiting lists and student reviews. 25-30 waitings can be cleared easily as many students go for other top management institutes of their choice, but nothing can be said accurately as it's just a prediction as per past records. So, sit back and wait until college releases the notification.

All the best.

I hope this helps.
