Selection Criteria of SPJIMR

In recent time, the institute has made some changes in its admission procedure for its MBA programs. Earlier, score-based calls and profile-based calls were joined together. Separate calls are given based on aspirant profiles and scores. But now, the two groups will be interviewed in separate phases.

Also, the institute has raised the number of seats to provide admission to more and more profile-based students in the 2-year MBA course. It is to be noted that completing the SP Jain XAT cut off is just the first hurdle as many factors are clubbed together for the final selection.

There are 2 ways of selection:-

  • Profile Based Calls: Here, the institute calls on the basis of the aspirant’s profile. However, the selection criteria here is that aspirant required to score an at least of 85% percentile overall and a sectional of 70% percentile in all sections.

Otherwise, the interview call becomes invalid. Here, the Institute observes closely the aspirant’s academic performance over the years, extra-curricular activities, achievements, and relevant work experience.

  • Score Based Calls: Once the results are declared, calls are made to aspirants on basis of CAT, XAT and GMAT Scores. 85-90 percentile in CAT/XAT is good enough to be shortlisted. The selection is a combination of both your score and your profile. Check   XAT Result 

It is to be noted that SP Jain Institute gives too much emphasis on the aspirants’ extra-curricular activities, profile, and experience and of course their performance in the interview rounds.

It doesn't give much preference to CAT/XAT scores. These scores are just used to all aspirants for the second round. Your selection depends on the GD and PI and other factors. So even if you get the at least XAT cut off, you are simply qualified for the second round.
