Ronak Gala Student Expert 20th Oct, 2019

The CMAT cutoff score for IMT HYDERABAD is around 200 marks. It obviously varies each year. It depends on various factors like number of candidates appearing and also the paper level. Try to score 95+ percentile to be somewhat confident enough to get a good college.
