Have a question related to Great Lakes Chennai (GLIM) ?

Cat-89.90% 10th-85% 12th-75% grad-58%(B.Sc Mathematics) Fresher Can I expect a call form Great lakes chennai PGDM,will my grad score affect or should I apply to it?

Hi Aspirant,

Hope you are doing great.

You have scored pretty well in CAT but still, great lakes put too much emphasis on your past academic performance. Your 10th and 12th marks are decent but the low performance in graduation can restrict your call from this college. Generally, the cut off of this college revolves around 85 percentile in CAT. So, there are some chances that you might get a call from this college at 89.90 percentile.


All the best.
