I have valid score in CAT and XAT in which I secured high marks in both the entrance exams. I applied for Great lakes Institute of Management, Chennai admissions to the PGDM course. Then the college actually fetched my marks of the entrance exam and notified me for the further process if eligible. I was like that shortlisted and they called me on phone asked me to come and appear for the personal interview. We also had a small essay writing for the admission only after seeing our performance in the personal interview. The final selection will be one based on the entrance exam score and academics.
