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.

my 10th % is 64 and 12th % is 54 can i get iim or any govt. b school with the basis of cat score or what score i have get to admission in iim ?

Rehan Alam Student Expert 3rd Apr, 2020

Dear Aspirant,

With your profile you might not be able to get any top IIM or baby IIMs. You can expect a call in the baby IIMs like Amritsar, etc @99+ but converting the call will be very difficult.

Moreover, if you are an engineer, you might not get that as well. I suggest you should focus on other exams like IIFT which are the Institute of Foreign Trade and are very good colleges have campus in Delhi and Kolkata. They did not give any weightage to past academic performance and give call only on the basis of exam performance and admission on the performance in interview.

Hope this helps. Thank you.

I have low percentage in 10th and 12th can i get the admission in iim or any reputated govt. b school with the basis of CAT score?

ADIL KHAN Student Expert 3rd Apr, 2020

Hii,

Some B-schools consider your academics but still Yes you can get into top b-schools, provided you have a decent percentile in the common admissions test(CAT) too a cat percentile of 98+ for mediocre IIMs and 99+ for the top ones. But you can absolutely forget IIMs-  Ahmedabad , Bangalore,v Calcutta,Indore as they focus on acads and you have a very average profile as of now but still there are lots of other factors which govern whether you'll be gettin a call from the top IIMs or not like which company did you work for, if the company is one in which the selection rate is less or the selection criteria is hard, which college you did your undergraduate degree from, which course did you pursue, many other factors which play a role.

Please focus on your undergraduation marks too and do a lot of Internships to improve your profile and hence increase the chances of getting a call.

Hi there! Im doing engineering in B. Tech Food technology and currently in 6th semester. Which career portion will be good for me , I should go for GATE Or CAT exam.

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 2nd Apr, 2020
Hello,


See, no course is good or bad.Both the courses are equally good and can enhance your chances if etting good jobs in future but you its you who has decide what you actually want to do,where your interest lies.MBA is about business,finance,sales,marketing,different types of management jobs etc. On the other hand if you work further in technology field or research/teaching then you should go with GATE.
Both will reward you good jobs in future if you are hardworking and determined.

Good Luck

My class 10th cgpa is 9.4,whereas my class 12th percentage is 94.6 and, graduation (b tech) Cgpa is 7.6. I am planning to appear for CAT in next exam. Is there any chance that i can get good IIMs Or any other good management clg, if I do well in my CAT exam.

ADIL KHAN Student Expert 2nd Apr, 2020

Hi Shivam,

Yes, absolutely. You have good academic scores apart from your graduation score. You can get call from some of the top colleges/universities like FMS, IIM Calcutta, Kozhikode, Shillong and other cap IIMs. Older IIMs are still a bit dicey in the matter and all the admissions will be mainly based on your CAT score. Given you are a Btech student then you should target a score of 99+ percentile to get a call from these B-school.
