Hi, I scored a 710 GMAT (Q49, V37) last year. I have 2 questions: 1.What was the last year cutoff for SPJIMR ? 2. Quant 49 unfortunately corresponds to 74%ile. I am just one percentile point short of the cutoff (75%ile) Is there any way to circumvent this or do I straight away have to score a 710+ now?
Hi, to answer your first question, the cutoff percentile (in GMAT) for SPJIMR is as follows: Overall percentile: 85%ile Verbal Review percentile: 75%ile Quantitative Review percentile: 75%ile You need to clear each of them. Also, these cutoffs are strict and if you fail to miss any of these, your profile would not be shortlisted. However, you can raise a query while filling out their form. SPJIMR Admission team is very responsive and you will definitely hear back from them. Now to answer the second part, Q49 to Q50 transition is not as tough as Q50 to Q51 is You need to find out where you are going wrong, whether it is PS or DS. In DS, the best way to improve accuracy is to slow down; to ensure this, you might need to improve your speed in the PS questions. Also, the cutoffs of SPJIMR for CAT/GMAT/XAT(till 2019) have been very standard throughout the years and they are unlikely to negotiate on this aspect. It is better to go for a better GMAT score, which will indirectly increase your chances of converting your calls.
