IIM Lucknow will be conducting CAT 2017, the admission gateway to 20 Indian Institutes of Management and more than 100 other top B-schools. The institute has released a tender for advertising services for CAT 2017 on June 21, 2017.  The tender has been signed by Convenor, CAT 2017, IIM Lucknow. However, the name of CAT 2017 Convenor is not mentioned in the notification. The notice states, “Indian Institute of Management Lucknow, the CAT Centre for CAT 2017, invites Bids in Two Bid System, from reputed vendors for providing Advertising Services for CAT 2017.” Prof. Neeraj Dwivedi has been named as the CAT 2017 Convenor.

 

As per previous years’ trend, it is likely that the official announcement of CAT 2017 will be made in the last Sunday of July 2017 and the CAT application process will commence from first week of August. Previous to this, IIM Lucknow had conducted CAT in the year 2010. This is the second computer based CAT to be conducted by this IIM. Last year, IIM Bangalore had conducted the exam.

The questions are objective type carrying multiple choices with around 20 to 25 per cent non multiple choice questions. Each question carries three marks and there is negative marking scheme of one mark for each wrong answer. Non-MCQs do not have negative marking scheme for wrong answers.

 

Apart from 20 IIMs over 100 B-schools across India will accept CAT 2017 scores for the two year full time management programmes of academic year 2018-19. Last year the total number of application was 2,32,434, highest in past seven years, out of which, 1,95,000 candidates appeared for the exam conducted in test centres across 136 cities of India.

Is it possible to get a call from IIM Ahmedabad with 93% in 10th, 95% in 12th, 85% in B.Tech from Tier 3 college without any internships and extra curricular activities and 99%tile in CAT?

Anshu Saini 20th Feb, 2020
Hi aspirant,
IIMs are known to raise their bars of the expected percentile in the examination. The general bracket of the accepted CAT percentile ranges from 95 to a 99.98 percentile so as to get you a PI, that is, a Personal Interview call from the IIM institutes. In regard to this they also consider 12 and 10 class marks and grade them. With your score you have fair chances of getting a call from IIM ahemdabad but you have to clear analytical written test (AWT) and personal interview for admission. Follow this link for more details-

I have get 37percentaile in cat 2019 what college are best

Vaishali Singh 20th Feb, 2020

Hi,

Your scores are very low and it would be difficult to get good b-schools, I think you should give another try next year. But if you are ready to take up tier 3 colleges, t here are many colleges which give a call at this percentile too. Based on your overall profile decent colleges give you a call.

But it also depends on what kind of college you are willing to take, like what investment you are willing to do, what kind of place you are preferring, and specifically the ROI i.e. the placement scenario of that college.

Some colleges that i suggest are ISB&M PUNE, IMI KOLKATA, IMT, LEXICON MILES, DSPSR Delhi,etc.

All the best.
