DTE cut JBIMS wings
– No gdpi direct admission through CAP rounds
– Higher cutoffs 99.87 for Open Maharashtra
– OMS students will have 18 seats to fight for.

JBIMS is a state government college which enjoyes reduced fees for the students (2 lacs for 2 years) hence should follow all admission process rules by mumbai university. Citing this logical reasoning DTE has scrapped JBIMS admission process.

This mean there won’t be gdpi as said earlier by the college and direct admission through CAP rounds centralised for all colleges. The move comes as a relief to many students who were not happy with the institute’s earlier this year’s admission criteria. After going autonomous, the institute had filled their seats on the basis of CET scores and GD/PI last to last year. However, last year with a new law in place in the state, every private and unaided institute offering professional courses will be governed by the centralized policy.

“All institutions, except deemed-to-be universities, have to follow the eligibility criteria as prescribed in the new law introduced last year. No institute can follow their own rules” said DTE joint director Dayanand Meshram last year. The Act, Maharashtra Unaided Private Professional Educational Institutions (Regulation of admission and fees), came into force from May 2015. According to the law, admissions to professional courses will be done through a CET followed by a CAP round.

In contrast to the trend of premier IIMs giving more weightage to components other than the entrance test (CAT), DTE scrapped the GD/PI process a few years ago after many institutes were not able to fill their seats. Under the new process, the state is yet to finalize the details, but officials claim that seats reserved for state students will be filled on the basis of CET scores alone. The all-India seats will be filled using CAT, CMAT, MAT, XAT scores. As JBIMS is one of the most sought-after institutes in the states, students are relieved that the criterion requires them to only clear CET with good scores.

Expected cutoff now:

JBIMS is now all based on cutoffs in CET and other exams. See the cutoffs for JBIMS for various categories.

Mumbai: A proposal from the board of Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies (JBIMS) to conduct its own admission has been rejected by the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE). In a letter to the institute, the DTE said JBIMS cannot conduct its own admission as it is governed by the state’s laws on admissions to professional courses. The institute will now appeal afresh to the state.

During the launch of the institute’s Leadership Speak series on Wednesday, the board of management announced a vision for JBIMS and the changes it intends to bring about at the college. Conducting admissions at the institute level was one of the proposals discussed.

A DTE official said, “They had sought permission, but such a process will not fall in the current legal framework. The Maharashtra Unaided and Private Professional Educational Institutions (Regulation of admissions and fees) Act 2015 makes it mandatory for all professional institutes (barring deemed ones) to admit students through a centralised process conducted by the state’s CET cell,” said the official. “We have asked the institute to approach the state government with a fresh proposal,” said the official. The state may, if they intend to, consider their proposal as a special case, he said.

A JBIMS official said the board formed after the institute was granted autonomy wanted to admit students at its level.

*Aggregate marks means the grand total of marks obtained by the candidate in subjects based on which the class declaration is made in the particular University from which the candidate is passing the qualifying examination. The percentage of marks obtained by the candidate in the bachelor’s degree would be calculated based on the practice followed by the university/ institution from where the candidate has obtained the degree. In case the candidates are awarded grades/CGPA instead of the marks, the conversion of grades/CGPA to percentage of marks would be based on the procedure certified by the university/institution from where the candidate has obtained the degree. In case the university/ institution does not have any scheme for converting CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by dividing the candidate’s CGPA by the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying the result with 100. In case the percentage of marks in aggregate comes in fraction then percentage of marks in aggregate shall be rounded up e.g. 44.50- 44.99% shall be rounded to 45% and 44.01- 44.49% shall be rounded to 44%marks.

A to Z of JBIMS cutoffs

1. Introduction:
Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies, popularly called JBIMS is one of the premier b-schools in India  founded 45 years ago in Mumbai. It is considered to be unique in management education as it is firmly rooted in the local soil and capable of articulating the Indian ethos. It is ranked in the league of premier management institutes such as the Indian Institute of Management (IIMs), Xavier Labour Relation Institute (XLRI) and Faculty Of Management Studies (FMS).

Its flagship MBA program, by name Master of Management Studies-MMS which has an intake of 120 students is considered to be one of the best courses in the country. Directorate of Technical Education (DTE), Maharashtra takes care of the selection process. Entrance exam for JBIMS is CAT and CET.

2.Seats Allocation :
The 120 seats are divided in this way

Maharashtra Seats

Now jbims has combined seats of Mumbai HU and OHU. Example open Maharashtra seats are now 38 + 9 = 47

Yes all India/ Non Maharashtra seats are less only 18 but Mumbai seats are also less only 38….
But WTF.. You need only 1 seat not 18… let remaining seats be taken by anyone.. 😉

3. Selection criteria Cutoffs
JBIMS is now all based on cutoffs in CET and other exams. See the cutoffs for JBIMS for various categories.

Open is open to all people and no reservation applies here ie if you are based in maharashtra or delhi or kolkota all have equal chances in JBIMS. but for reservation all seats for maharashtra students only ie No reservation for SC ST others in JBIMS outside Maharashtra.

Selection criteria Cutoffs
JBIMS gives more weightage to profile than just cutoffs. The table belows shows the cutoffs for JBIMS for all categories.

Category CAT cutoff MHCET cutoff
General 95 95.37
Reserved 75 90
Ph 75 85
PIO 85 85

Section wise weightage

Jbims weightage cutoffs
Now that we know the break up, let me explain the technicalities involved in the above table.

Weightage Out of 100
CAT CET Scores 36.0%
PAR Xth Xth 9.0%
Extra currics/ Workex 12.0%
Diversity 3.0%
Group Activity 8.0%
Personal Interview 24.0%
WAT 8.0%

36% of the total weightage is given to the written exam ie students below 99%ile very hard to convert
Only 40% weightage is given to the GD-interview stage with main being Personal Interview.
Very less importance is given to academic performance and work ex.

4. Cutoff for last few years

P.S : Till last year, MH-CET was the entrance exam. It was for 200 marks and number of marks to each section was half of what it is now. JBIMS cutoffs ie 99%ile:
Year    Cutoff for call (out of 200)
2014    123
2012    125
2011    122
2010    144
2009    132
So this means cutoffs for JBIMS ie 99%ile will be around 125 marks in CET on an average but at CETking we say 150/200 as target score for JBIMS so that you score 99.9 and confirm your admission in jbims.
