I have completed my 10(210) and +2 in (2012) and my ug got delayed due to personal reasons and I finished my UG 2019. Is there any issue in this. Am I eligible for CAT? Am very confused. Please help me out

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 9th Dec, 2019

hi,

see there is no age age limit for applying in cat exam, and there is no mention of maximum year gap. the basic eligibility criteria for appearing in cat exam is you need to have graduation degree in any discipline with 50% marks in graduation. however some top institute like iims, sp jain, fms delhi and top bschool has gd and  interview session after clearing cutoff score of entrance test. so you may asked to explain the year gap. thats why be prepared for it. however you are definitely eligible for cat.

87 percentile in cat 2019 with 40.xx %ile in VA so which college is there in which I can consider?

Bhaskar Nakkina Student Expert 7th Dec, 2019

Hii,

The Cut off to IIM's and Business Schools depend on the Highest mark and difficulty level of the exam. As there is no official Highest mark, we have to wait till the Results are released. 87 percentile in CAT is a good Score. You can get good Business Schools but difficult to get IIM's.

how many iim does not take PI WAT?

SAKSHI KULSHRESHTHA 7th Dec, 2019

Hi Swapnil

Most IIMs take WAT or the written ability test where one is given around 15- 30 minutes to write an essay on any given topic. Only two IIMs- Kozhikode and Shillong take GD. But all of them conduct Personal Interview or PI.

The weightage of CAT score, academic qualifications, work experience, GD/ WAT and PI differs from college to college. You can find the detailed list on the given link: https://www.imsindia.com/CAT/iims-shortlisting-criteria.html
