HI,

I have some confusion regarding KJ Somaiya and JBIMS.
Both come under CET as well as CAT i guess....
I intend to give both the exams.....So which score shud i upload for the second GD/PI stage...IS it best of two or wat is the procedure or equating the CAT score to say a CET score.

Moreover I am Maharashtra state candidate...Is there a specific quota for that as the institute comes under CET....

PLus can I apply later for the institute(i.e. after applying for CET?)

Please help me on this one

Please answer the following Queries continued from the The unofficial thread of Kj somaiya admissions 2008-2010...
1. While filling the Online form the total marks field for Graduation doesn't accept number more than 3 digits,so can we simply scale it to 100 and put the total marks as 100.
2. Do we need to send the attested copies or normal Photostat copies of work exp certificate...will the print out of 1st and current salary slip suffice incase we don't have a proper work exp certificate

thanks in Anticipation

Please call the admission department at the number given on the admission brochure with your CAT registration number to know your application status.

Regarding infrastructure many additional facilities are being planned for students which will be completed in next three months so you should not worry about it. It will be done long before your batch joins.

It is difficult to comment on how much marks you will get in CAT for sure. But if you are getting what you have mentioned you can try. There are other parameters as well which are important, for details please go through the brochure.

Sir,

Can you help me out with the following query in the PGDM form:

In the current job tab the time period for the experience is to be mentioned start date and end date.

I was working from July 2005 to November 2006 but the drop down option does not have 2006 as an option it has 2007 and 2008
what should I enter in that tab.

Thanks

Regarding the work experience : The option is there in the application form to enter for the November 2006. You can fill it up now.

Anirban you have left a single space after your name in the userid that is the reason you are unable to login, login now with the same userid and pwd , it will be ok now.

I am facing a problem while filling up the online form...

I was filling up the kj somaiya online form....

Now when i try to login, its saying that the CAT registration number is in the database but the username and password doesnt match.......
