I have an NMAT score of 174 (2019), will this be enough to clear cut off for MBA Full time program in IBS Hyderabad?


Hi Kevin

The cut off for IBS Hyderabad depends on the difficulty level of the paper as well as other factors like how other students have performed. IBS does not officially release the NMAT cutoffs.

Although a score of 150+ would be decent enough to clear the cutoffs this year. All the best for the results.
