kumar : sir, Cat score cut off for nitie mumbai?
asim : For General category-Around 97 percentile overall with sectional cutoffs


kartik : how is ibs hyderabad? I have secured a seat and is it worth joining
asim : Its a decent option,it offers good infrastructure and faculty members. The only concern is their high intake and fee structure.


himud : ITM NM or SCMS cochin is better for finance?

subhadeep : any good college possible at 40 score in cet in maharashtra for an oms candidate?
asim : None among the TOP 30 B-Schools,if you are a general category student.
