Many MBA institutes are so smart that the playa twist here, what they are doing? Actually they put the last date of their application form 1 or 2 days prior to the exam, so the Aspirant always is in a dilemma that whether should I fill the form or not. After that majorly, it also seen aspirants take a chance and fill the form without knowing the score it’s due to they think if I didn’t get a good score it’s ok, but if they don’t fill the form and got a good score so it’s a big blunder.

Therefore for the backup they doing this thing. And for this, MBA colleges earn a lot of money through this strategy. For instance, in this scenario, my humble advice is that always focus your mock score as a base, try to attempt diff coaching class mocks so that you get a fair idea what’s your range of score.

After that try to take the average of this and fill the college form. Otherwise, it will take a lot of money through you, and at last if you did not get a college. So it’s a big loss. In other words, this is a small trick to you from me.
