  • Posted by - harshul3311 - on 28 June 2012 - 4:20pm


    I am looking forward to applying for a MIM program in UK.

    I have secured 6.49 cgpa in my engineering.

    Most b-schools are asking for a 2:1 equivalent UK degree(??)

    Kindly shed some light whether I am eligible with 6.49 cgpa.

    With BR.

      Dear Sir,

      Thanks for your reply. Yes cgpa means grade point average.

      I have contacted the Manchester Business school,,, but haven't got any reply.

      With BR,

        Dear Harshul,

        you have sent your email to Manchester Business School in the afternoon (UK time)... So they basically had ine day to answer....

        There are schools that answer in between 2 or 3 business days. But some schools need about 2 weeks.

        So, you should give them some time. Also, I recommend you to ask more than one school.

        Best wishes

      Dear Harshul,

      thank you for your question. WIth "CGPA" you mean ygeneral,our great point average (GPA), right?

      In general, I think your approach is too broad. There are many Business Schools in the UK and each school treats eligibility criteria different - some tighter, some more relaxed.

      I recommend you first to make a list of your 3 to 5 most favorite schools. And then, in a second step, you can approach these schools individually to check if 6.49 is sufficient.

      Finally, in our section "School Contacts" you find some UK schools such as Hult, Warwick, Ashridge, and Manchester. You can contact them directly there.

      Best wishes
