K J Somaiya is considered to be one of the most sought and finest B-schools. This is major because of its fees, location as well as the placements offered by them.

  • A CAT percentile of around 90 is considered good enough to get a call from them. But the real challenge that students face is after they get the call.
  • Out of all the B-schools, K J Somaiya is one of those few that emphasize a student’s SOP. 
  • Apart from this, it also considers a student’s past academics and extracurricular achievements to judge their chances of selection. But as per their recent brochure, it seems that they have changed their focus to Group Discussion.
  • A 50% weightage is given to CAT/XAT scores and the factors stated above and apart from this, students will be grilled through an extempore and a personal interview round.

Therefore, it is suggested to start preparing for GD and PI because no matter how good or bad your academics are, they cannot be changed but one can always work on these aspects. If you think you will get a good CAT score, then a good performance in GD and PI would fetch you your desired call. And hence, it would not be that difficult.
