Last year, the test got shrouded in controversy after the declaration of the CAT 2013 result. Question arose over the scoring and normalization process when it was found out that 95,000 candidates obtained 0 or negative scores, as a result of which as candidates who attempted no questions were placed at around 55 percentile bracket. Owing to this, candidates dissatisfied with their scores  filed Writ Petition which led the Indore High Court to send notice to all 13 IIMs, Ministry of HRD and CAT testing agency Prometric India Pvt. Ltd.

Shivika Tyagi 16th Feb, 2020
For getting a call from SP Jain, you must score around 95 percentile in Cat. Although you must set your target for 95+ only so that you surely get a call from them. And after that you have to perform really well in GD and PI process. SP jain gives benefit to students with strong profile and work experience. So, try to build your profile.
Hope it helps you. Good luck
