Currently not having a permanent campus, all the classes are held in a transit campus which is a part of Polytechnic college LK Gujral University, Amritsar. Though the permanent campus is a work in progress and probably will be done by the year end.

Hello,

The CAT test is the initial requirement for admission to the IIMs. The Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview are the following phases (PI). The WAT and PI are the primary selection factors for admission to IIM MBA. They take place following the release of the CAT results. Candidates are shortlisted for WAT and PI if they fulfil the CAT cutoff. Final admission decisions are made based on a candidate's entire profile, which includes their CAT, academic, work, and category scores as well as their WAT and PI scores.

Look at the IIM's qualifying requirements below:

  • The minimum graduation requirement for admission to an IIM is 50% overall, or an equivalent CGPA (45% for SC, ST, and PWD/DA categories).
  • Candidates who are taking the bachelor's degree/equivalent qualification test in their final year or who are awaiting their results may also apply.
  • The candidates must satisfy the IIM shortlist/qualifying cut off in order to be called for an IIM interview.
  • The minimal IIM call cut off must be met in order for applicants to be eligible for interview calls and to take part in WAT/GD-PI.

So, you are eligible to apply for CAT to get into IIM.

There are so many IIM and you are eligible for all if you CAT cutoff is above 90.

IIM colleges like IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore, IIM Calcutta, IIM Lucknow, IIM Indore, IIM Kozhikode and many more.

Try hard and give your best to clear CAT and personal interview.

Best Wishes for your future.

Thank You

K J Somaiya Institute of Management for MBA or IIM Amritsar for MBA

Hello Aspirant,

Hope you are doing well !

Keeping in mind, both K J Somaiya Institute of Management, and IIM Amritsar both are really good colleges, in my opinion, IIM Amritsar would be the better option.

Though K J Somaiya's Highest package(26.5 LPA) is more than IIM Amritsar's(25.21 LPA). IIM Amritsar's average placement(14.63 LPA) is better than the other(10.59 LPA).

Also one of the most important quality you get in an IIM is it's brand. There is no doubt that IIM Amritsar has a brand much stronger than the other.

Hope my answer would help you.
