Read Full Interview below:

Careers360: The CAT result was officially scheduled for third week of December. What is CAT 2014 Result status now?

Dr. Rohit Kapoor: Yes, we had scheduled the CAT 2014 Results for the third week and we actually wanted to do so. But, it’s taking a little more time as our team along with our testing Partner Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is taking a few extra measures to make the CAT results completely flawless.

Careers360:  So, what exactly is holding you back from announcing the results?

Dr. Rohit Kapoor: Nothing is holding us back. It’s in final stage and we are doing our final checks on any possibility of technical errors. Since we expect heavy traffic on Result day, we are testifying the technical aspects and ensuring that there is no technical glitch like server crash once the result is declared.

Careers360:  When should we expect the result finally?

Dr. Rohit Kapoor: We are determined to announce the CAT results as soon as possible. We also don’t want CAT-takers to wait much longer. It will be announced soon. I assure CAT 2014 takers that they will get their results before they step into New Year Celebration!

Careers360:  There are some conflicting media reports on result declaration. What is your take on this?

Dr. Rohit Kapoor: We had declared the result date along with application announcement about six months back. It is only rational to expect a little change in the result date as the final process of result compilation itself is a complex process. Further, I don’t want to comment on media reports and I don’t know where they are getting these information from.  We, on our part, are completely focused on bringing the CAT 2014 results in a fair and transparent manner.

Careers360:  Final words to the CAT takers who are eagerly waiting for results.

Dr. Rohit Kapoor: We understand that you have worked hard for Common Admission Test (CAT).  We are taking every measure to ensure highly fair CAT results. I wish that your CAT Results gives you a reason to enter New Year on a happy note!

if i obtain 80 marks in quantitative aptitude 80 marks in data interpection and 80 marks in verbal reasoning what is my total percentile of cat because my 10th and 12 marks is low ?

Ankit Dahiya Student Expert 6th Apr, 2020
Your CAT percentile has nothing to do with class X and XII marks.
The percentile indicates your performance relative to the other candidates. For example if you get 80 percentile it means your score is more than 80% of the appearing students.
The percentipe is calculated as:
P=(R/N) 100
where R=Rank of student and N=Number of students who appeared.

I have 96% in 10th 94 %in 12th and 7 3 cgpa in btech and around 18 months of work much do I need to score in CAT 2020 to get a call from IIMA/B /C or FMS ?

Prakarsh Kaushik 5th Apr, 2020


For getting in top B-schools of India like IIM-A, IIM-B, IIM-C, FMS Delhi etc. you need good marks not only in in CAT but also in Class 10th, 12th and your graduation. If you have some work experience then it gives you more advantages.

There is no specific cutoff of percentile on which you can get into top IIMs. Since your marks in 10th, 12th is above 90% and in graduation above 7 CGPA with work experience, you can expect a call from IIM-A, IIM-B, IIM-C if you have at least 99 percentile in CAT .

For FMS also you should aim for 99+ percentile in CAT and also keep in mind that if you score 95+ percentile in VARC Section it will increase your chances of getting in.
