Can I give cat exam in my 4th year 1st sem... Now m in 3rd year..

Atharv Mungikar 9th Dec, 2019


Most of the students from B. Tech sit for CAT exam in their final year. You will be considered as a fresher and most of the questions asked in the interview will be done from your B. Tech field. But according to my knowledge, students having some experience are preferred more in the colleges. I recommend that you start gaining experience from the 7th SEM and register and then give your CAT exam before your 8th SEM because after the interviews colleges generally ask for graduation certificate for a proof that you have graduated. Some interviews also require you to show the pre-final year notice (a letter from UG should work)

I hope this helped.

All the best.


I have completed my 10(210) and +2 in (2012) and my ug got delayed due to personal reasons and I finished my UG 2019. Is there any issue in this. Am I eligible for CAT? Am very confused. Please help me out

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 9th Dec, 2019


see there is no age age limit for applying in cat exam, and there is no mention of maximum year gap. the basic eligibility criteria for appearing in cat exam is you need to have graduation degree in any discipline with 50% marks in graduation. however some top institute like iims, sp jain, fms delhi and top bschool has gd and  interview session after clearing cutoff score of entrance test. so you may asked to explain the year gap. thats why be prepared for it. however you are definitely eligible for cat.

87 percentile in cat 2019 with 40.xx %ile in VA so which college is there in which I can consider?

Bhaskar Nakkina Student Expert 7th Dec, 2019


The Cut off to IIM's and Business Schools depend on the Highest mark and difficulty level of the exam. As there is no official Highest mark, we have to wait till the Results are released. 87 percentile in CAT is a good Score. You can get good Business Schools but difficult to get IIM's.
