ISB Mohali does not have a separate FPM program. All FPM classes take place in Hyderabad. ISB is far ahead in research than any of the Indian programs. Stipend is 48K and accomodation is free.

Somewhere below it was mentioned that for people applying with cat 95 percentile is generally required. I remember when applying with GRE, there was a section where it was required to enter the (total score/340)*100 for the overall percentile. With 323 I'm just on the fence with around 95 pct. This is just an extrapolation though, I don't have any inside info.

PhD/FPM admissions are very noisy. 99% noise, 1% signal. You have to hope that the admission committee catches that 1% signal and also like it over 200 other applications out of which at least 20 are equally competitive. A better than average profile would increase your chances but does not guarantee it. 


Desk rejection at FPM admin office based on cut off scores is always a possibility particularly in India where there is a veritable ocean of applications. Thus it is quite possible that a low score would get you a rejection and your application would never come across a Professor's desk.
