hi seniors,
does sjmsom requires 60 percentage(Equivalent CGPA) in 10th, 12th as well as in BE/BTECH?
I have 60 percentage in 10th and my engineering but i am 1 percent short in my 12.
I have completed my 12th under gujarat board and here they do not consider practicals marks in final result.
though if i consider practicals then my final percentage gets more than 60.

Hey Shrey,
SJMSOM does not require 60% aggregate in class-10 and 12th..
The eligibility criteria for SJMSOM M.Mgmt program is:


Students with a first class Bachelor's degree in engineering (or equivalent) or
first class Master's degree in Science are eligible for admission to the M.Mgt.
Programme. Students should have secured min. 60% aggregate marks / min. CGPI of 6.5
out of 10 at the qualifying examination. There is a relaxation of 5% in marks or
equivalent in CGPI for SC/ST candidates.


eligibility criteria:

Hi nandini,
Thanks for ur reply.
Just one more query.
My engineering college also follows the concept of CGPA but they have a different way of caluclating percentage from it. So as per my college methodology my CPI is 6.3 and my final percentage is 65.
I have transcript from college which has both my CGPA and my percentage. Is it suffice or i will have to get any other document? and will SJMSOM calculate percentage from CGPA as per their standards and norms or the one given in my document?

Hey Shrey,
First class and 60% was the eligibility last year.If your engg. university treats more than 60% as first class then there is no problem.CPI of 6.3 or 65%, both are above 60% so thats not an issue.
Also this was the eligibilty criteria last year. More clarity on this issue will be near the JMET result date.Best of luck!
Seniors now da paper is close enuff!!!analysed last year's paper...found dat only 23-24 questions attemptable in all three sections , nw fr sjmsom i need to get 85+ correct ...wat to do to tackle such paper???
Assumption-Accuracy can't be 100%


Hey,
Identify your strong areas.In these areas (if u get an easy paper that is) you will be able to solve most of the questions. Also last year for the first time we had a three hour paper.
There will be sufficient time to go through each question.Practice DI since if this section is easy and normal look at the graph and answer type questions come then chances of error is least.General English is tested.If you want then you can go through some school grammar basics to improve your score.
All the very best!

Hi sagaran,

Fisrst of all thanks for the details.Is this rank 418 in general category the final rank including work ex guys or only freshers.
Asking u straight forwardly,i have 3 years of work ex in IT,what is the rank i should get in jmet 2009 to get a call or please let me know the final rank in jmet 2008(with 3years of work ex) who got a call.

hey murali,
Rank 418 last year was the last rank of the general category.separate last rank for fresher and work-ex people is not calculated.The students who got these ranks happen to have work ex.

Hey varun,
The fees for the entire programme for our batch was 8.64 Lakh..inclusive of hostel and mess.Things remaining the way they are your batch fees most probably will remain the same.

7000 rank for the OBC....surprising.
One clarification needed here. The AIR for the reserved category is not calculated separately, right. It's just plain All India Rank.

Yes.No separate rank list.
