Selection Procedure of CAT 2019 at IIMs
The selection procedure of IIMs will be different as per the institute regulations. Candidates will be able to check the admission criteria which will be released by each of the IITs as soon as CAT 2019 is announced. The notification of CAT 2019 was released on July 26, 2019.
All the candidates will be shortlisted for admissions on the basis of their performance in CAT 2019 i.e., as per their secured score/percentile. Here, the cutoffs will be important since every institute will be releasing their own cutoff for shortlisting which will be different as per the institute. All of those candidates who meet the cutoff will be able to move to the next stage of the selection procedure - Written Ability Tests (WAT), Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interviews (PI). While CAT 2019 performance will be an important factor for selection, IIMs may also additionally use other factors such as previous academic performance, relevant work experience, gender and academic diversity.
CAT 2019 selection procedure varies as per the IIMs:
Old IIMs such as IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Calcutta, IIM Bangalore and more will separately conduct their selection procedure
Common Admission Process (CAP) will be conducted by the newly established IIMs for selection. Shortlisting of candidates will be done and they will have to appear for a common written ability test and personal interview rounds. The representatives from all IIMs will be assessing the candidates’ performance and after it concludes, separate institute-wise merit list will be declared based on individual admission and selection criteria.
Newly established IIMs such as IIM Sirmaur, IIM Jammu and IIM Nagpur will be releasing their own merit list according to CAT score or percentile and profile of the candidate. These institutes will not conduct GD/WAT-PI rounds for selection of candidates.
Selection Procedure of CAT 2019 at Other B-Schools
Since there is no common admission system, the B-schools who do not fall under the IIM category will be conducting their own selection procedure. The process of selection such as group discussion, written ability test and personal interview will be decided by the institutes. Institutes such as IMT Ghaziabad and MICA conduct group activity or group exercise instead of group discussion. However, some institutes do conduct group discussion or group activity as well as essay writing/writing ability test along with the personal interview.

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.

Don't take a complete drop instead work part-time/full time and prepare alongside for the Common Admissions test - CAT. Prepare step by step or get yourself enrolled for a weekends program with a good coaching institute depending on your preparation level. This will not only give you an edge over other freshers who will be applying but also will give you an idea on the stream/domain in which you want to pursue your MBA in.
