IIT Kanpur has tie ups with a lot of universities due to the technological courses offered here. These universities occasionally also offer management level courses.

The management program has a tieup with a german university, from which we receive exchange students (currently 1 german student is pursuing a semester over here). However, nobody from the current two batches studying here has gone abroad as part of an exchange program.

I will surely keep you posted if there is any new development on this front.

Generally, JMET was known to have a strictly typical quant section, and easier-than-CAT RC and DI sections. Due to this, Quant cutoffs used to go really down under, and used to be the single largest deciding factor on calls.

Last year, JMET was a complete surprise, with 3 hours and a comparatively much easier Quant section. Thus the focus straightaway shifted to speed, as for approximately 80/120, ppl got ranks in 700.

My take would be: focus on speed, and do a little bit of differentials and integrals to be on the safe side. Dont neglect RC and DI altogether ! :D

IIT cutoffs are never disclosed: u dont get a rank if you dont clear all cutoffs. When u get a rank, IITK usually calls upto 1200 rank in the GD PIs.


PS - You can call me Manu :biggrin:

Hi Jishnu,

1) Fee structure is approx 35000 per semester(multiply by 4). Only thing excluded is the mess bill.
2 and 3) Scores are not relevant, as they will change with the pattern. Ranks I have already answered in a previous post.

Hi Manu
I wanted to know more about sectional cutoffs of JMET
are they low(as 50%ile in FMS ) or high as (90%ile +) for IIMS in CAT ?
Also if you can post your score(with sectional details) and some other scores
it would be really helpful

Hi Rajiv,

Sectional cutoffs are never disclosed in JMET. The IITs just inform you if you are eligible to apply to the IITs or not. This eligibility depends on the sectional cutoffs.

As far as my score is concerned, I secured an all india rank of 631 at a score of 81.25/120, and got almost equal scores in all 4 sections (19,20,21,21.25)
