Let me make one thing clear. The only thing that you can stop you from getting admission in these reputated institutions is the same who can get you admission. It is you.
Always remember your will power is the one standing between you and your admission in these colleges.
Now you have already appeared for 12th and youu cannot change that. What you can change is your tenacity and your urge to succeed.
Now I am not a motivational speaker, but you need to realize that if you preapre well and score high marks and acheive high rank, you will definitely get admission in these colleges.
Prepare well, give your best and hope for the best. You will definitely get admission and have a great career.
Hope this helps!
i have 68% in 10th 50% in 12th and 62%in UG CAN i get any main imm or baby iim if i have score 95 percentile in cat.. i am from resorve category SC..Can i get any iim call??
95 percentile is quite good percentile. IIM call doesn't depend only on CAT score.There are various other factors also:
Even some students who didn't have good academic even get call on the basis of their profile.
All IIM want diversity in their campus .So there is good chance for you for getting call from IIM.
HOPE THIS ANSWER IS HELPFUL FOR YOU.
I am expecting 96-98 percentile in CAT 2020 based on my mocks. I have 89.8% in 10th and 71% in 12th and 68% in M.Tech Integrated Biotechnology (No work ex). Are these scores realistic to convert new IIMs and other colleges like MDI, SP JAIN, IIT etc?
Congratulations for your mock tests score.
The cut-off for top institutions depends upon your background, if you are an Engineer, you are required to score 99 percentile for top 10 colleges of India for MBA which includes IIM A, IIM B , IIM C etc. And if you are from non engineering background then 97-98 percentile also may works for you (general category).
As your 10th and 12th score is also good, you have great Chance of getting Interview calls from old IIMs and definitely from new IIMs too, also Colleges like IMT Ghaziabad, MDI gurgaon will definitely gives you an interview call if you apply for them with 98 percentile.
As currently you are scoring 96-98 percentile, try more hard and don't panic in exam, you may score more than 99 in actual exam.
I hope this information would be helpful for you.
All the best for your bright career ahead.
Can you tell me how much percentile required to get into SP Jain, NITIE Mumbai, and XLRI? Is there any chance of mine getting into an IIMs or any other goverment colleges if yes my academic records are X - 60.8% , XII - 63.6% And UG - 72.77% .
Basically to get admission in top IIM'S you will have to get at last 99 percentile or above, still there is no guarantee that you will achieve it.
Yop IIM's follows two different set of rules. One for Initial calling and otehr for Final Selection. For Initial calling they give 35%-40% weightage to your previous credentials and 60 to 65 to CAT score.
For Final calling they give 10% -20% only and remaining is given to GD, PI and CAT score.
For XLRI you will have to XAT. For SP Jain you need 90-92.
All the best!!
I am pursuing my BBA how much percentile i have to score in CAT to get top tier colleges like IIMs or FMS or sp jain? And i am from General category.
Percentile that you should score in CAT exam in order to get top business School depends upon your percentage in bachelor or academic record because for the final admission in the top business school your overall record will be seen so if your percentage in bachelor and your intermediate is good enough then you can consider your good chances of admission with 96 or more percentile, if you don't have good enough record in your academics then you will have to score more than 99 percentile to get into top business school.
Best of luck.
