About this group
Hi just found a mail from IMS in my Junk mail folder (how appropriate :grin: :: ). Its about CET...Though I have no plans of taking up CET , the interesting part of the mail was that it said certain B- Schools like JBIMS while adopting CET sco...
Page 1 of 2

It gives a lot of confusion when some1 says that JB accepts CAT, XAT and MAT score for OMR category and then a reply comes that it does not accept CAT score without giving any details like from where he got this info. I would request some experience friend to clarify the doubt that which all scores are accepted in JB with facts.

Please reply.

This year JBIMS has No seats for non-maharashtra candidates. Thus the number of seats for maharastrans falling under open category has gone up to 47.

Besides, JBIMS will not conduct any GD/PI's that means no calls will be sent. Everything is to be done throught the CAP.

i hv analysed it this way....u can think about it.
i hv 97% in CAT...there are atleast 4000 guys ahead of me...out of them atleast 1000 must be such that they hv not got admission newhere...and they will be OMS too....now even of 10% of them opt for JB thru CAT, they hv a better chance than me....so the best thing is to go for CET.
in the above supposition i hv not taken into account students having exceptional marks in XAT & other exams....
so may be this is passive thinking.....but much more realistic....so if u hv nething less than 99.5% u shud not go for CET thru CAT.
hope this clears some doubts of urs..
all the best,
shaan

spjain is muchhhhh better than bajaj
the reason bajaj is so famous is cos it has been there since years nd ws founded alongwith stanford nd stuff... and over time it has build a good brand name
but the BIGGEST problem is the mumbai univ board Course structure
it sucks nd is outdated

SP Jain teaching methodology and course structure absolutely rocks

If u r jus concerned wid placements go to either of the two...both guarantee good placements...wont really compare the two.

but if course structure matters nd u do hv a choice btwn sp jain nd jbims... go for sp jain

Coming to my questions -
1) My percentile in CAT 2004 is 98.4.....do I stand a chance?
2) How good is Bajaj, when compared to SP Jain wrt placements and course contents.



Hi ineptus .. will try to answer ur questions.

1) I think you should apply .. you never know what can happen .. also with this big ZHOL in DTE's admission procedure .. i dont know how many of the people will be able to apply through OMS ... i mean coming down from one end of mumbai to another is cumbersome ... outside maharashtra is worse.

That kept aside .. another point is people with 97% generally would wait to give another try .... though i still dont know how the other scores are gonna be given weightage .. but ur 98.4 is definitely worth applying.

2) about SPJAIN vs JBIMS ... there is a feeling that SPJain is better ... becoz of the quality of students ... in JBIMS you have 120 with 50% category .. so not necessary that all the students are of the same capacity ... so if u shine .. you could actually be in the top 50 of the class .. and in MMS jbims rulzzzz ...

that's all i can punch in .. bye .. nikhil k

Guys,
This seems to be going nowhere . When I started the topic, what I hoped for was for some solid and reliable PG shtyle guidance . And what I have ended up with here is , something which is very much different ....that too after 226 views !!! Is there no one out there who can guide me???

For ppl who are into this topic for the first time .....please read the first message I posted...too tired to repeat it.
