  1. Hi…. Does CAT Score really matters in the selection process atleast for the interview or if CAT score is not good enough but the professional experience which i carry and the company which i work and the overall achievements and awards and certifications can really compensate the CAT Score and other eligibilities required by IIM-B PGSEM program? How the CAT Score has the role in the admission process for the PGSEM Program..

  2. Need to know the information that when the PGSEM 2013 application form will be issued and next years exam date.
