do I need to have maths till the 12th standard to apply for BBA in colleges in Mumbai? also, do I need maths till the 12th grade for admission in symbiosis?

Leon George 16th Jan, 2020

Hello Shubhra,

It's not compulsory to have Maths in 12th standard to apply for colleges in Mumbai, although some colleges like St. Xaviers College require candidates to have maths in 12th standard to apply for course. Most of the universities go for entrance exam to give admission to the university, like University of Mumbai.

In case of Symbiosis also you are not required to have maths in 12th to get admission.  You are required to appear for Symbiosis Entrance Test and other process to get admission into BBA.

I hope it helps and goodluck

Thank you

please let me know, Gim vs symbiosis bangaluru, sign puna wich is better choice I got offer from both

Sampriti Student Expert 16th Jan, 2020
GIM goa would be a better than SIBM Bangalore. Both are equally good as far as marketing program is concerned but if you're considering any other program like Human Resource then GIM would be a better option. In fact GIM is one of the top 50 B schools in India. They have a pretty good alumni base and great reputation among corporates. Considering ROI also GIM would be your best option.

Good Luck
