what is the cutoff of jbims college of mumbai

Aman Raj Student Expert 30th Nov, 2019

Hello Siddharth

The Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies, Mumbai accepts MAH CET scores for admissions to its six Masters in Management programmes.

According to the officials, the MAH CET JBIMS last year  Cutoff for open category  candidates is 125, i.e Under 50 Rank.


igot info that the courses offered by jbims arenot of that value if you got admission through cmat, it means its not worth to go for cmat, better to go for mahcet??????

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 30th Nov, 2019

Alok, world is a strange place and we get to hear lot of things, But what we take to our heart depends on us. Now CMAT score is not considered for JBIMS.  MAH CET is a State level entrance exam. In fact, truth be told, JBIMS considers CAT/MAHCET. GMAT is for Foreign Nationals. So, CMAT isn't even in the picture. So if you want to take admission in JBIMS, you should appear for CAT or MAHCET. Now CAT exam has already happened and it is not clear whether you have appeared for CAT or not. So you should appear for MAHCET for admission to JBIMS because your MAHCET score carries 60% weightage for being shortlisted for JBIMS.


does jbims accepts the score of 682 in mat exam 2019 ???? please let me know

Aman Raj Student Expert 28th Nov, 2019

Hello Parul

As per my information JBIMS( if you are talking about Jamna Lal Bajaj) has stopped considering MAT score since 2018.

Only CAT/CMAT/CET will be accepted.

The score required will depend on your category (Maharashtra state candidate/ other than Maharashtra state candidate)

For Maharastra state candidate (open) cutoff will be in the range of 99.85–99.90

For others it will be 99.99.


is the cat / cmat mandatory after the completion of bba is there any admission without it possible

Arya 27th Nov, 2019

Hi Devanshi,

Admissions to the IIMs are only done through CAT scores. However, many top colleges also accept scores obtained in ATMA, XAT, MAT or GMAT. Some top private intitutes hold their own entrance examinations e.g. Amity, NMIMN, Symbiosis, XUB etc. If you want  to take direct admission without giving any national level entrance test, some institutes, which are not in India's top 100, also offer that.
