FMS to Accept CAT Scores of 2011

Delhi based Faculty of Management Studies (FMS) will accept CAT score for admissions next year. FMS Delhi admits students through a rigorous process which is similar to selection process adopted by Tier 1 business schools like the IIMs, except that FMS had it’s own entrance test for its initial screening process (written). The Delhi based B School is in the top 10 business school list in India.

FMS entrance test was scheduled to be held on December 4, 2011, following the mishap with the Delhi University (DU refused to help FMS conduct the entrance test this year ‘as per the cited source below‘) FMS had turned the CAT way. FMS joins the elite list of business schools which accept CAT scores atleast for it’s next year admissions, no official communication was made whether FMS will discontinue its entrance test or not as of yet. Earlier IITs declared it’s will to scrap JMET and consider CAT score, the post was published earlier on Career Mitra which can be read from here.

What similarities does FMS entrance test & CAT have, take a look below:
