The difference between a UGAT BBA and a SET BBA is as follows:
1. BBA (UGAT): This exam is conducted by the All India Management Association (AIMA). With UGAT scores, you can get admission to more than 50 management colleges. The test lasts 180 minutes and is generally more difficult than the SET. The UGAT allows you to have more options for colleges than the SET. You can choose a college based on affordability, location, and other factors.
2. BBA (SET): This exam is conducted by Symbiosis University for admission to its School of Management. You can get admission to the BBA course at Symbiosis. With a SET score, you have limited options for BBA. The course fee at Symbiosis is comparably higher than many colleges under AIMA. However, the nature of the test is easier, and the placement opportunities at Symbiosis are better than many UGAT colleges for BBA courses. Hence, you can go for either of these tests based on your preference.
