I have 98.71 percentile in CMAT, and had registered for MH-CET. Will I be able to get a seat in Sydenham or PUMBA in the All India category?
There is a 15-35% reservation in colleges in Maharashtra for All India Examinations like CAT/XAT etc. With your CAT percentile it will be difficult to get into the older IIMs (at least 99.5) but may make it to the newer ones, however you will certainly qualify for other top B Schools (at least 92%) in India. Hence with this percentage you definitely will qualify for Sydenham Institute of Management Studies and SPPU – Department of Management Sciences (PUMPA). We suggest you speak to both and understand their mindset and then decide if you need to write your MHCET.
I have received 99.58 percentile in MBA CET 2020, any chances of getting into Sydenham?
