• Q

    Sir. I got 90% in 10th standard and 88.6% in 12th standard. Marks went down during my graduation in BTech Biotechnology to 6.3 CGPA. Do I still have a chance to get into the top B Schools in India?

  • A

    Your graduate-level performance may be a point of worry, however, your 10th and 12th performance is good. One dip in academic record should not hamper your overall prospects. Again, your management entrance test performance, extra-curricular activities, diversity, work experience etc. will also factor in during the selection process. You must, at present focus on what you can change - that is your performance in CAT/XAT etc.

  • Q

    I got 80% in B.S.c. math (honours) from University Of delhi. Is it enough to get admission in S.P. Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR), Mumbai?

  • A

    SPJIMR's admission process is based on a candidate's overall profile, academic background, work experience, entrance scores, and versatility & achievements. So, you see, the information that you provided is insufficient to evaluate your prospect. All we can say at present is that you have a minority undergraduate degree, with good performance - and this may help you score a few points in the selection process. However, other components such as CAT/XAT scores and others as mentioned above will come in play too.

    i got 80% in 10th, 60% 12th and i have done BE in instrumentation with 5.9 CGPI (approx 59%) . is it possible to get admission in top B-school excluding top IIMs

  • A

    Past academic performance is a major evaluation criteria in top-30 b-schools, including IIMs.


    You can refer to this series of articles for further understanding --


    (1) How the 10th, 12th, Grad scores and experience impact admission chance at top IIMs

    (2) How the 10th, 12th, Grad scores and experience impact admission chance at new IIMs

    (3) How the 10th, 12th, Grad scores and experience impact admission at top B-Schools


    Prima facie, it looks very difficult for you to make it to top-15 b-schools, unless you have a strong performance in management entrance tests such as CAT, XAT etc.
