CAT OA-97.34 %ile GEM Fresher, do I have a realistic shot at converting PGDHRM IIM Ranchi?

Sampriti Student Expert 18th Jan, 2020
You have a good chance of getting a call from IIM Ranchi PGDHRM. The college provides one of the best HR programs in India. But your ultimate conversion will depend upon your performance in the subsequent selection rounds. There's always a huge competition for PGDHRM of IIM Ranchi but prepare well for it and you can get through.

Apart from that you can also get IIMs like Sambalpur, Sirmaur, Rohtak, Kashipur, Jammu, Bodhgaya and Raipur.

And you can also check out some other colleges apart from IIMs like
  • MDI Gurgaon
  • Sailesh J Mehta, IIT Bombay
  • Department of Management, IIT Madras
  • IMT Ghaziabad
  • IMI Delhi
  • FORE School of Management
  • VGSOM IIT Kharagpur and others.
These are equally good colleges in terms of academics and placements. But if you're particularly concerned about an HR program MDI Gurgaon and IMI Delhi are also pretty good.

Good Luck

Hi Nitesh,

Firstly, I would like to congratulate you on getting such a decent percentile. You have done hard wok throughout the year and this has reflected in your percentile. I addition to that, you have an awesome profile. Being a B-School student, I have seen placement processes where profiles similar to yours are getting shortlisted for interviews for summer placements and final placements. The fact that you got 90+ percentage in both class 10 and 12 would be like icing on the cake where your perfect work experience will pull up your CV. So you won’t be having any kind of problem if you keep your pointers good in academics during your MBA, though it doesn’t matter much.

I am jotting you down some of the top colleges and their CAT cut offs:

What are my chances of getting into top IIMs or the new IIMs. I have 97% in Xth, 93% in XIIth and 59% in UG. Is my UG percent a reason for concern? Except A,B what all IIMs do I have a chance at?

Miles Education 21st Nov, 2019

Getting into IIMs has always been competitive however that has been the case for the general PG course which is based on CAT scores and subsequent WAT and PI. However in recent times IIMs have realized that specialization is the need of the hour. This is result of diverse adoption of technology expertise across industries which has led to tech knowledge becoming the primary driver of performance. What this has led the IIMs to do is partner up with academic partners to develop specialized courses specific to industries. For example, the IIM analytics courses  (https://mileseducation.com/analytics/home) by IIM Lucknow are developed together with Wiley innovation council and IIM faculty. Further these courses are customized for business leaders who have the IIM business and data analytics course (https://mileseducation.com/analytics/IIM-Lucknow) while there is another custom Analytics course for finance and accounting professionals (https://mileseducation.com/finance/IIM-Lucknow-Analytics) . Since these courses are exclusively designed for an industry, the enrollments do not see the generic competition based on CAT scores. You can check your eligibility (https://mileseducation.com/analytics/home) and apply for enrollment.

Interestingly these courses give you the IIM Lucknow alumni status as well.

All the best.
