    Have a question related to IIFM Bhopal ?

    can i admit in IIFM ,my cat percentile is73

    Hello Aspirant,

    The minimum IIFM CAT Cut off required for admission to courses is 85 percentile.

    Therefore there are less chances to get admission in IIFM with 73 percentile in CAT. There are some chances to get seat in IIFM with 73 percentile if you are from SC or ST category .

    Hope this helps.

    does iifm bhopal offers bsc degree or bachelor degree in forest science ?


    The Indian Institute of Forest Management, Bhopal was set up by the Ministry of environment, forest and climate change, the government of India.

    No,IIFM doesn't provide admission to Bachelor's Degree in Forest Science.
    IIFM provides admission to PGDM programmes and also to M. Phil, FPM, PhD and a certification courses.

    Hope it helps
    Thank you !!!!

    I have a low score in CAT (34 percentile) as well as XAT(20 percentile). Should I apply at IIFM, Bhopal? I really like that college but I don't know if I should apply or not!


    IIFM Bhopal is Indian institute of forest management college. And it's very reputed management college. Infrastructure of this college id very good. 230 acres of this campus and almost all type of sports are available here. Free WiFi available in total campus, independent library and luxury also available. Hostel facility is very good because it's manage by students and food decided by students as well. Hygiene maintenance hostel. Placement is good, almost 100% placement occur in every year. Salary package also high. But for admission qualification you have to clear CAT or XAT examination. And your marks should be above 80+ percentile. So your percentile is very low, i don't think so you can get admission there. But you can try once.

    All the best.
