It is all about recognizing the social problems and achieving a social change by employing entrepreneurial principles, processes and operations. The two-fold aim of sustainability and societal impact can be achieved through synergistic execution, for which open communication and sharing of ideas is critical.

Hello there. Hope you are doing good. You have not mentioned the exact details of your academic history so I won't be able to tell the exact business schools which you will be eligible for. But I can help you by w=giving a very general answer.
Admission to most of the top B Schools is done considering your whole profile i.e your academic history, work experience (if any) and your CAT percentile. Since you have mentioned 99 percentile, then it is an exceptionally good score to get. If you have work experience or any other skill which you think that will be sufficient enough to impress the interviewers, then your academic history won't matter much. Though in certain B Schools, separate weight age is given to academic history but your CAT score can overshadow that very well.
You need not worry about the list of colleges. You will be eligible for almost all the top B Schools.
I hope you found this answer helpful. Good luck.
Yes you are eligible for both the exams as for XLRI Jamshedpur there is no minimum requirement of marks for appearing in the exam and for the Indian Institute of foreign trade, cutoff marks are 50% in any graduation for general category students.
Hope this helps. Thanks.
