Sir if a student have 69% in 12 the and if he is having 99 percentile in Cat .th n he or sheis eligible for iim . I

Deepesh Malhotra Student Expert 22nd Jul, 2019

Dear aspirant,

12 th marks are considered in calculating the total score of an individual. You get points based on your 12 th score. Considering your 12 th score you will get hardly 2-4 points out of 10. The total score depends on various factors starting from 12 th mark, cat score, interview and all. After the total score it is decided whether the candidate will get a call from iim or not.

Hope this will help you..!! 


What is the cutoff of IMT Ghaziabad, Nagpur and Hyderabad in CAT

Sampriti Student Expert 18th Jul, 2019

For IMT Ghaziabad, it requires a 90 percentile in CAT. Apart from that your past academic records and your profile also matters. 

For the other 3 campuses of IMT which are Nagpur, Hyderabad and Dubai, you'll get a call if you have 70 percentile. For Hyderabad and Dubai you may get a call at even a 60 percentile. 

Moreover the GE/PI rounds of the Ghaziabad campus happens separately while the process is same for the other three campuses. 

All the very best
