LM Thapar School of Management cutoff varies on the amount of candidates appearing and the level of difficulty of exams each year.LM Thapar School of ManagementNMATCutoff for previous years was above 150 percentile. Every year LM Thapar School of Management NMAT Cutoff stays near to 150.
LM Thapar School of Management CAT previous yeara Cut Offwas around 70-80 percentile. The LM Thapar School of Management CAT cutoff largely depends on the difficulty of the paper.

I am totally confused of choosing colleges with help of my CAT percentile 50.62 and NMAT score with 151? whether can I get into top bschools ? can I have some list of those colleges too?

Sampriti Student Expert 31st Jan, 2020
With your CAT scores you can still check out some decent colleges like
  • NDIM New Delhi (fees = 9.3 lakhs)
  • JIMS Rohini (7.7 lakhs)
  • BIMM Pune (7.85 lakhs)
  • Globsyn Business School Kolkata (7.6 lakhs)

These are some good colleges who select their candidates based on their performance in the GD/PI rounds. You'll just have to apply to the college and select the city where you want your interview to be conducted and they'll call you for the process there and based on your performance there they will select you. The average compensation package offered there is nearly 5-6 lakhs.

With your NMAT scores the best option you have now is ICFAI Business School Hyderabad and other 8 campuses. They also require a minimum of 150 in NMAT and they'll call you for the GD/PI rounds in Hyderabad and based on your performance there you'll be allotted one if the 9 campuses. IBS is good for marketing and finance programs. Among the IBS campuses the top 3 colleges are
  • IBS Hyderabad ( fees = 14.1 lakhs, average compensation package offered last year =7.8 lakhs)
  • IBS Pune and IBS Mumbai ( fees = 8.1 lakhs, average package offered last year = 6.5 lakhs)

Good Luck
