Hi let me inaugurate this thread with my query( queries )

first up what sort of criteria does SJMSOM apply because i have heard that it requires a 60% in each semester of engg. is that true or is it just a 60 % aggregat..if it is the former, can a disastrous first year result be salvaged by university ranks in the last three years of my engineering or what???...

My score in JMET was 82-84 ish...but only attempted 4 qs in quant got 3 right leaving me with 2.75 in quant is that a problem?..

hey
i would like to know what are the parameters thety look for in an interview!!
I have a score of 75+ in jmet and work ex of 18 months as of december and shud hav 22 months and i am not in one of those it biggies am rather in a mid cap but really growing company!!
also what are the odds of getting a call??

Your Quant score should not be an issue. AFAIK they look for a non-negative score in quant.
And for 60 %, what is written on your degree certificate is what matters. If its written as first class then its fine. It wont matter if its aggragate or just final year .

I guess you have a good chance of getting a call 😃

Hi Phooka, really appreciate your effort to help all of us out here...

I am getting a score of 72.25 in JMET, both according to TIME and IMS (i didn't attempt the controversial analogies :d), what is my chance of getting a call from SJMSOM??? Also, i have around 6 months experiece in Software industry? Does such a little experience counts in any way? :)

As far as acads go, i have:

X : 91.4%
XII : 87%
Engg. : 8.78/10

hey phooka..
nice to see a new thread for iitb..i really dunno whether i shud be posting here though with my relatively low score in jmet 2006..i am getting a 67 total and am a fresher though with decent academics
(X-82
XII-85
engg aggregate upto 6th sem-70%)
do i stand a remote chance of getting thru?! coz frm what i am seeing regarding the epected cut offs by all institutes,no one has pegged a cut off higher thn 67..with some saying a 65 wud do.
plzz comment. thank you

To prepare for GD/PIs, its good to be in touch with current affairs by reading editorials. But, I will suggest you to don't restrict only to Hindu. Read other newspapers as well. This way, you will get a wider perspective.

Do brush up with your statistics books as well. They do ask a lot of questions related to stats in PIs.

All the best!

Hmm, he came back to IIT, stayed for 2 days and now has gone back again. 😃

My profile:
X-95%
XII-84%
B.Tech in Dairy Technology - 79%
Currently doing masters.

No work experience.
JMET score of 72.

Firstly what r my chances?
2ndly, coz I am not from a core engg or tech area will that b a problem? Hav u heard of any Dairy or food technologists in SJSOM?
Never gave so much focus on the Dairy Engg part.... if I do manage a call in any of the IITs do I hav to seriously consider studying the engg part?

Phooka or any IIT senior plz help!
Thank you.

Take care.
