B-school Admission Criteria

Every year, lakhs of management aspirants appear for the challenging entrance tests in order to get admission to PGDM/MBA programmes of reputed institutes. Generally, every B-school shortlist several hundreds of candidates, which is 8-10 times the number of admission seats.
