The percentile scores pertain only to the written test as declared by any other test, be it CAT, XAT or otherwise. There cannot be consolidated scores as only a fraction of the candidates get to attend the GD/PIs.
The reason why the percentiles are not declared before itself is to ensure a fair process during the GD/PI for every candidate where everyone is evaluated on the same level.
I think the notion that FMS admissions have a high weightage for written (as high as 70%) can be laid to rest now. Even during admissions for last year's batch, there were some people who had very high percentiles but still did not make it. Seems like more importance is being given to the GD/PI performance, especially the extempore.
Now that the results are out, confirmed candidates party:drinking:and w/l candidates enjoy the wait.... (I was w/l 4 in 2007 and had to wait for 2 months before I could pay my fees)
In my belief, the person wont be automatically taken out from the waitlist. The person concerned could be more willing to take MBA-MS and have had taken MBA only as a backup in case his waitlist in MS doesnt convert. So he might decide to switch once he converts MS as well.
Just think abt it in d reverse way. Wat if a person is cleared in MS and waitlisted in MBA. Then would (should) his taking it into MS result in his expulsion from the MBA list.
Another thing, I called FMS office yesterday. Though it ought to be a holiday, someone picked up :o. He told me that they are currently working on the data and the list can be expected by today evening. He refused to give any indication abt the movement though it is expected to be low since the IIM results are not out yet. So keep your fingers Xed puys. ATB!!!

Wow.....you guys seem to have had a hell of a ride with this paper!! My suggestion....dont worry about the answer keys...a substantial number of the answers always tend to differ from the correct ones. chill out, puys!!
Results should be out soon enough too....FMS is one of the few campuses where the admissions are over by March end. So expect the results for the entrance exam to come by February 2nd week:.
Someone on the forum was asking abt QA percentiles....traditionally its been an easy section in the FMS paper, but judging by your reactions, I'd say the cutoffs are going way down this time. Also, there are a substantial number of non-engineering students that apply for this exam. So expect the cutoffs to be lower:new_scatter:
