CAT 2015 Results: 9000 candidates score zero or negative

 

On the basis of the CAT 2015 Result, the 19 IIMs will announce the shortlist of candidates based on their admission criteria and CAT 2015 cutoff. The shortlisted candidates have to appear for Written Ability Test and Personal Interview rounds. The new IIMs conduct a Common Admission Process consisting of Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI) rounds. 

 

Soon after the results will be declared, the important thing for the candidates will be CAT 2015 Cutoff.  Cutoff refers to the minimum score or percentile which a candidate must secure to get shortlisted by the participating institute for the next rounds of the selection process. While the top B-schools will have a higher range of CAT 2015 cutoffs, 90+ percentile, the mid rung B-schools’ cutoffs range from 75 to 80 percentile and that of the lower rung B-schools is around 50 percentiles.

Last year, 1,67,830 candidates had taken CAT out of 1,96,000 registrations. A total number of 16 candidates secured 100 percentile. Among the 16 toppers, 1 was a female candidate, Neha Manglik who happened to be the only girl to secure 100 percentile since 2009.

 

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is the online testing partner of CAT 2015.

 

Normalization and Shortlisting at IIMs:

According to the normalization process announced by IIM-A officials, the scores of CAT 2015 results have been adjusted for location and scale differences of score distributions across different test forms. Besides normalization across different forms, the result prepared for CAT 2015 has been further normalized across different sections and the scaled scores obtained by this process have been converted into percentiles. The same percentile will be used as final results for shortlisting by IIMs and other top B-schools accepting Cat scores in India, IIM officials said.

 

IIM selection process:

After CAT 2015 results, separate shortlist will be announced by different IIMs for next stage of selection process which will include GD-PI and WAT depending on the selection criteria of different B-schools.  “Each IIM will send interview letters to the short-listed candidates directly. The criteria for short-listing vary from IIM to IIM,” officials said.

 

While the scores of CAT 2015 is given due weightage, different IIMs also use academic performance of the candidates, relevant work experience, and other similar inputs in short listing and ranking of candidates at various stages of the admission process.

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

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

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.
