Ans. When you are talking about the normal person, you must be clear about who this normal person is. Is it a person who is in the middle when people are arranged as per the salary package they receive? If yes, then you are looking for the median salary value.
The median value of packages for old IIMs, XLRI, and FMS ranges somewhere between 18-25 lakhs per annum while for new IIMs and other B-schools, the median value ranges between 10-16 lakhs per annum. The packages differ year after year. Also, there are many factors that come into consideration while deciding the average package received by a normal person in any of the institutes be it IIMs or other b-schools.
The average package in a particular specialization may be higher in a specific institute. For eg: XLRI gets the highest median packages for HR specialization, but not for other specializations.

Ans. All the above-mentioned colleges such as XLRI, TISS, SCMHRD, and SIBM are excellent private colleges. Which provides good HR placements in comparison to IIMs. But if one has to choose between IIMs they can look at the information given below;
IIMs are considered the best institutes for management studies. Currently, there are 20 IIMs in India with the oldest being IIM Ahmedabad and IIM Calcutta.
IIMs are well-known institutes that bag top rankings in all aspects. In comparison to XLRI, TISS, SCMHRD, and SIBM, IIMs are more reputed and have given better placements to students.
However, these colleges are right behind the IIMs, the pros of the college include that they provide better facilities than IIMs and they have smaller batches. Smaller batches lead to a better understanding of the course and the faculty provides more time for each student.
In conclusion, IIMs are the more trusted group of colleges however, in terms of placements, all the colleges provide excellent placement percentages.
For the year 2020, IIM Calcutta, IIM Lucknow, and IIM Kozhikode had the best placement record. For comparison, we can see the placements record of these top 3 IIM for the HR course.

Even though all the other IIMs provide excellent placements, the above-mentioned branches were able to get their students the highest packages.
Therefore, apart from the private colleges which were mentioned above, these three IIMs, i.e. IIM Calcutta, IIM Lucknow, and IIM Kozhikode provide the best placements in India for HR.Read more

If IIM is the flagship institution in the management domain, IIM - Ahmedabad is the flagship institute of the IIM group. They have one of the most rigorous selection criteria amongst all of the B-Schools in India. Not to mention IIMA is the organizing body of the most prestigious management exam, CAT. Along with CAT exam scores, they allocate weightage to multiple factors like academic performance, diversity factors, performance in GDPI, work experience, etc. I took coaching from TIMES institute, where they helped me prepare for all these sessions. The only thing, I had to work upon was the confidence factor. The rest went pretty smoothly.

The first step was to bell the CAT 2012. Amidst job responsibilities, most of the preparation happened in the last one month before CAT.
