hi my cmat score is 160 am i eligible for ifmr

Shubhee Verma 14th Feb, 2019

Institute for Financial and Management Research (IFMR) 

The CMAT cutoff is 91 percentile but IFMR adopts profile based criteria.Profile based criteria includes your participation in co-curricular activities like your performance in sports and cultural activities.

So according to me , you can expect a call from IFMR on the basis of your profile based criteria!

Hope this is helpful !
