    How is the placment record of BIMM PUN? Can i consider it to be an institute which shall place me well?

  • A

    Hello! You can check the Balaji Institute of Modern Management (BIMM), Pune profile (including placement and salary information) by clicking here. Please understand that an institute does not "place" its students - it only "facilitates" the placement process. The onus is entirely on the students to get placed by performing well in their curricular and extra-curricular activities. Our advice to you is that you select an institute based on what you want to learn (specialization), how you want to grow your career (a short-term, mediaum-term and long-term career growth vision), and whether the companies that visit the campus recruit in your area of interest. That would be a much wiser approach, rathern than selecting purely based on placement information. Hope it helps. All the best.

    I will be giving my NMAT exam on 20th Oct. I have given three mocks and the highest I scored was 186. Can you please guide me on effective time management ? How do I take my score above 220? Please help.

    Hello and thank you for writing to us! Your current NMAT performance in Mock tests is really good to start with.


    The key to crack any entrance test is practice. It's not only practice which is the key but working on your weak areas which shall bring a change in your performance. I recommend that you review the 3 tests and make a note of your strong and weak areas. Once you do that, you shall realize your weak areas and must start working on the same.

Click at the link for details and view the detailed analysis given by IMS experts. I hope that you will gain valuable insights and strong understanding of NMAT pattern this year, and prepare accordingly. Try to enrol for more such tests because practice will take you to your target of 220+. We suggest you to opt for multiple mock tests and not only focus on the 3 tests already taken by you.
