vikrant : appears to be the CAT percentile.


annu : PLEASE REPLY REGARDING MISB BECOONI QUESTION OF ITS RECOGNITION
vikrant : When it comes to the jobs in the private sector, what matters more is the industry perception of the college than the exact status of the recognition. ISB too is not recognised but it has created a brand for itself. But the lower down we go the ratings, the better it is to stick to colleges with all regulatory approvals. And in case you eventually want to pursue a doctorate or apply to government jobs then it is definitely not for you.
