Answer
Dear Atul,

Hope you're doing good.

Why do you think of scoring 40-45% and why can't you score 100%. MBA is all about management and as per my understanding people already having some experience perform better in management courses and you seem to be an experienced person and computer savvy. Therefore you should think positive at first and remove negativity from your mind immediately.

Scoring good in academics does matter but there are other more important things like experience, attitude which matters more. People who score 40% too get jobs and they too reach to a higher level in their career but it takes some more time compared to another person who probably scored very well in academics.

In my opinion, you should join a part-time MBA in HR while working. Apart from that you should look for a job possibly in a placement consultancy or may be in a small firm to understand HR at first. While in next two-three years you'll complete your MBA in HR you'll be experienced into HR for 2-3 years hence that'll be good for your career and would be helpful in getting a good job in HR.

Please avoid doing MBA through distance learning programme as many companies have now upgraded their benchmark and they only appoint candidates having done full-time or part-time MBA.

Good luck!
