Im a middle class student 88.55 percentile in CAT what would be good colleges for me wrt our economical background?

Snehlata Sinha Student Expert 20th Jan, 2020
Hey,

CAT percentile between 80 to 90 can be a tricky situation. While you get optimistic to see yourself placed in the top range of CAT takers, the reality check of not being able to make it to the old IIMs also strikes soon. Since the old IIMs or IIM BLACKIS exhaust the shortlist by 98-100 percentile, there is hardly any chance for CAT takers securing 80 to 90 percentile to get a call from old IIMs. Despite performing well inCAT , you suddenly realise that you are not good enough for your dream destinations to spend next two years. But rather than losing hope, you should look at the brighter side that there are several top B-schools in the range of 80 to 90 percentile, including the newIIMs .

Vist the Website below to have a better insights of all the college and can even predict your colleges based on your cat score with the cat pathfinder.
