Yes, admission staff are well aware of IIT colleges in India and how these marks compare to the general applicant pool.I am an undergraduate in Chemical Engineering from IIT Kanpur (one of the best institutes in India) with a CGPA of 8.1/10.
Considering that my college comes in top 10 in Asia easily and its academics is considered tough globally will the colleges consider my average grades?
Best of luck with your applications. Make sure to share your profile and timelines in our Tracker.
1.) Is it necessary to take TOEFL along with GRE to apply for MFE programs?
2.) I am thinking of NUS/NTU singapore univs. Is it worth going there, considering ROI?(I know that U comment only on US based programs, but just tell me whatever U feel)3.)I dont know much about finance(think that I am starting from level 0), so tell me how to improve in finance, so that I may not face problem after getting into the program.4.)I am planning for Fall 2012, but for some reasons it may not be possible for me to go for it in 2012, if it is not possible to join in FALL, should I have to wait until fall 2013 or are there any programs that intake in spring 2013?Thanks in Advance and sorry for my bad english.
1) Yes. TOEFL is required for most programs since you did not study in US, UK or other English-based countries.
