I got 8.6 cgpa in class 10, 77% in class 12 and 7.8 cgpa in my graduation and I am expecting my percentile around 90 in CAT. so what are chances to get a call from IIMs and other top MBA colleges?

Harshita Sharan Srivastava Student Expert 17th Feb, 2020
Hello aspirant,

  • As per the details provided by you, your academics are average for selection into iims. And with 90 percentile it's very difficult for you to get a call from top IIMs. Although you can get calls from new IIMs but the chances are pretty low.. Even don't expect to get call from IITs at 90 percentile.. If you are planning to get into top MBA Institutes then I'll recommend you to sit for another attempt..otherwise you can also take following colleges:
  • Welingkar Mumbai
  • Tapmi
  • Bimtec
  • FMS BHU
  • DTU

is there any scholorship available for cat top scrores

Shareef 17th Feb, 2020

GITAM Hyderabad Business School has no scholarship facilities for students who have been toppers. CAT is not only the entrance exam that is accepted in this college so CAT toppers or any exam toppers for MBA entrance exam do not get any scholarships. But Gitam College, Visakhapatnam offers merit scholarships and you can check them at: https://gim.gitam.edu/admissions/merit-scholarship

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 17th Feb, 2020

hi,

its true that iims and some of other top ranked institute shortlisted candidates as per their academic record and  cat or any other management aptitude  test score. see right now which of institute name you have mentioned is also comes under tier 1 college. now you need to focus on your presentation skills, communication approach  to get shortlisted in final rounds. so keep calm and focus on your goal, I think you will surely crack it.
