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
  • DTU

All the best
