Is this course equivalent to MBA... Like, Can we apply to the posts requiring "MBA or equivalent" after MBE? Thanks, in advance !

For the 12th marks they have mentioned best of 4 (including english and maths).but they have not mentioned anythng about 10th marks. so should we give best of 5 marks or the average of all the subjects???

Can i expect a call for GD/PI with a index of 86-88.

Do we have to send caste certificate along with the dd and application???

In order to apply,is it essential to have maths as one of the subjects in class 12.
