Showing 80 out of 80 Questions

what will be the cmat cutoff to get admission in Great lakes chennai college and imt nagpur and imt Hyderabad also for pgdm

Sampriti Student Expert 6th Feb, 2020
Great Lakes Chennai considers an applicant pool of 500 students while giving a call so you can expect the cutoff to be a minimum of 98 percentile in CMAT.

For IMT Nagpur the minimum CMAT percentile required is 80 and for IMT Hyderabad they require a minimum score of 150 in CMAT. If you score more than 80 percentile you automatically get a call from both the Nagpur and Hyderabad campuses, provided that you've applied for IMT. But if your percentile is below 80 then you'll get a call only for IMT Nagpur. The GE/PI process for all the campuses except IMT Ghaziabad is conducted together and based on your performance you'll be allotted one of the two campuses.

Good Luck

I have scored 93.06 percentile in CMAT 2020, Can I expect a call from colleges like GIM, KJ Somaiya , Great lakes Chennai and others?

Sampriti Student Expert 6th Feb, 2020
With your CMAT percentile it may be a little difficult to get a call from Great Lakes as they consider a pool of 500 students while giving a call which requires you to have a minimum of 98 percentile in CMAT.

If you belong to the state of Maharashtra then you have some chances of getting a call from KJ Somaiya as their cutoff lies between 93-94 percentile. But if you belong to other states then it would be difficult as the cutoff for other state students in CMAT is 99.97 percentile.

But you can get a call from GIM Goa as they require a minimum score of 240 in CMAT.

Moreover you can also check out some other good colleges as you have pretty decent percentile in CMAT
  • XIME Bangalore (fees =10 lakhs)
  • XISS Ranchi (10 lakhs)
  • IMT Nagpur (14 lakhs) and Hyderabad(12 lakhs) campuses
  • BIMM Pune (7.85 lakhs)
  • IFMR Chennai (12.5 lakhs)
  • ITM Navi Mumbai (10.5 lakhs)
  • Praxis Kolkata (7.57 lakhs)
  • BIMTECH Noida (considers CMAT scores for PGDM RM and PGDM IBM only) (fees =12 lakhs)

Good Luck
