 Best bet is to score 99.8 in CAT.  Excellent CAT scores does count for a lot especially in IIM C and FMS.

Hello everyone,

I'm writing this post since I needed suggestions on the colleges to apply.

My only hindrance is my below average academic profile.

10th 2007 - 84.20%

12th 2009 - 61.80%

Took a drop year and joined engineering in 2010.

Graduation 2014 (B.E. Pune University) - 55% (rounded off)

I'm very confident my CAT 2015 score will be around 140-160 marks. The percentile estimate is 93-97!

Work Experience - 5 months. Did not want to quit but had to for a personal reason.

I have a quite good extra-curricular profile. Been a part of clubs and societies, participated in sports at the regional and Kendriya Vidyalaya national levels, learnt a foreign language, black belt in karate etc. Let us just say it is very decent and above-average.

Also, I have an NISM certification in mutual funds since I help my father with his financial consultancy. I'll be appearing for the CFP module-1 in January/February. I'm pretty sure I want to do my MBA in Finance.

Can anyone suggest me the colleges that I can apply to? Do I have a decent chance of getting into an AAA or an AAAA grade college?

Thank you!

Graduation( Bsc.IT)  57.48%

I had  ATKT in one subject in 5th semester and i cleared it together with my 6th semester.My ATKT result arriving just 15 days before my 6th semester result.

Hey bud! Let me give you some clear idea. Some of the best bschools doesn't consider your past acads like-IIFT,SIBM,IMT,MDI,SIBM... And one more thing its all about how you can convince the interviewer that you are the best student for their college. So work hard play harder.

Hi All,

Just joined PG.I have a query regarding my academic score as soon i will be starting preparation for MBA,so didn't wanted to start it having any doubt in mind over my admission or selection.

This may be silly to ask but just need some suggestion.


12th(state board)=55%

2 years academic gap


Lots of Extra curricular activities(Had a college band also)

Work ex (IT M.N.C)=3 years

If ill manage to get a good score,will i get call from any good college based on my academics.

Is there any chance for I.M.T(g) or M.D.I type colleges as I.I.Ms never going to call me i think
