CMAT ambiguities

With multiple posts regarding CMAT cutoffs, people are still uncertain on what to apply for or what can be done with current scores, let me take a step by step approach to as many queries as I can get,

1. Let you score be 300, likes of colleges likes of top colleges are still uncertain and depend a lot on FEB CMAT/CET. I won’t be pessimistic but just a word of caution for the ones who feel a rank of 20-30 is enough that it may be the best for now but charts can turn…

2. If you have scores of 220+ in Sept CMAT, apply for PGDBM courses at KJ, Welingkar and GIM (Great Lakes i am unaware of so won’t comment on its cutoff)…Good colleges and you may get calls from all 3 at this score but a lot depends on their GDPI so have to toil a lot to crack it…but atleast fill up the forms and hope for the best to get secured admission…

3. Occurrence of GDPI for final placements for colleges under DTE (JB, SIMSREE, KJ MMS etc.) is eminent but still nothing can be assured with CET into picture…My call would be to give FEB CMAT/CET for all who have attempted SEPT CMAT so as to leave no stones unturned

4. For GK – nobel prize winners, sportsmen and their game, politicians (of india, pakistan, UK and US), brand ambassadors and their brands, current affairs (read newspapers), all national level award winners (bharat ratna and similar awards)…Many more can be added to it but the most important thing is luck and it may get you anything….Try your best is all I can say and be at your toes with all quant formulaes, logical understanding and verbal reading…

5. Don’t rely on the rules currently set or heard, rules are made to be changed…Last year’s batch was a classic example of the sufferers…Just that you lads don’t end up in the same mess, my call would be to be ready for the worst possible rules to be set and announced…

6. Try attempting other exams and don’t rely on CMAT…Now with rumors that many more scores would be accepted in the DTE process, nothing can be guaranteed till the final verdict is out…but giving other exams increases the possibility of a better college so keep trying at different entrances

7. Last but not the least, it is luck and you need to trust it…give in your complete effort to anything and everything that’s available and trust me you would get the best…keep patience and look out for the perfect move…Finally all the very best for your future

Regards,

Abhijeet.
