Soumya Kanta Sarkar 16th Jan, 2020

Hi Nitesh,

Firstly, I would like to congratulate you on getting such a decent percentile. You have done hard wok throughout the year and this has reflected in your percentile. I addition to that, you have an awesome profile. Being a B-School student, I have seen placement processes where profiles similar to yours are getting shortlisted for interviews for summer placements and final placements. The fact that you got 90+ percentage in both class 10 and 12 would be like icing on the cake where your perfect work experience will pull up your CV. So you won’t be having any kind of problem if you keep your pointers good in academics during your MBA, though it doesn’t matter much.

I am jotting you down some of the top colleges and their CAT cut offs:


CAT Cutoff

Average Package(in Lakhs Per Annum)






















IIT Bombay



IIT Delhi



IMT Ghaziabad


















These are some of the top colleges and the average placement packages that you can expect at the end of your 2 year MBA program.

You will be getting a call from mostly all of the baby IIMs, namely

  • IIM Sirmaur
  • IIM Bodh Gaya
  • IIM Udaipur
  • IIM Jammu
  • IIM Ranchi
  • IIM Amritsar

What I can say is that, you have a very good chance of converting some of the renowned B-Schools in India. So just start preparing for the initial Group Discussion, Case Presentation and Personal Interview rounds.

I hope I have been able to solve your query. Do write to us in case of any doubts and we will be happy to help. All the best!!!


Hello Everyone, I am a hotel Management Graduate and currently pursuing PGPMWE from IIM Raipur. As I studied a bit of statistics here, it really drew my attention. Now i really wanted to give the JAM exam and pursue MSc. Am I eligible to go ahead?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 1st Oct, 2019

Dear Rahul, you mentioned that you are a Hotel Management Graduate but haven't mentioned your aggregate in Bachelor's degree. If you belong to General Category or OBC, you should secure a minimum aggregate of 55% and it is 50% for SC,ST,PWD Categories. Now for being eligible for M.Sc Statistics, you should have studied Statistics atleast for 2 years in your Bachelor's degree. Now PGPMWE is a Post Graduation course and that is not considered while evaluating your eligiblity criterIa. So unfortunately, even if you scored the aggregate required against your Category, if you haven't studied Statistics in your Bachelor's degree, you are not eligible for JAM 2020.


What are my chances of getting into top IIMs or the new IIMs. I have 97% in Xth, 93% in XIIth and 59% in UG. Is my UG percent a reason for concern? Except A,B what all IIMs do I have a chance at?

Miles Education 21st Nov, 2019

Getting into IIMs has always been competitive however that has been the case for the general PG course which is based on CAT scores and subsequent WAT and PI. However in recent times IIMs have realized that specialization is the need of the hour. This is result of diverse adoption of technology expertise across industries which has led to tech knowledge becoming the primary driver of performance. What this has led the IIMs to do is partner up with academic partners to develop specialized courses specific to industries. For example, the IIM analytics courses  ( by IIM Lucknow are developed together with Wiley innovation council and IIM faculty. Further these courses are customized for business leaders who have the IIM business and data analytics course ( while there is another custom Analytics course for finance and accounting professionals ( . Since these courses are exclusively designed for an industry, the enrollments do not see the generic competition based on CAT scores. You can check your eligibility ( and apply for enrollment.

Interestingly these courses give you the IIM Lucknow alumni status as well.

All the best.
