Now let us take a look at the expected CAT cutoff of non-IIM CAT participating institutes.

CAT Cutoff for Various Colleges

As the CAT cutoff depends largely on the difficulty level of the exam, it’s important to know that the exam last year was moderately tough on the difficulty scale.

As the CAT 2019 result has been declared on January 4, 2020, the participating institutes will shortlist candidates based on their cutoffs and other CAT eligibility criteria. Shortlisted candidates will appear for the selection procedure which includes Writing Ability Test (WAT) or Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interview (PI) rounds. More than 4000 seats are offered by 20 IIMs through CAT exam.
