Let us now look at the IIM Admission Criteria in detail.
The IIM Admission Criteria is a two-step process
Common Admission Test –CAT, and
Personal Interview (PI) and Written Ability Test (WAT)
Candidates are first shortlisted on the basis of the CAT cut-off percentiles, sectional as well as overall, along with past academic record and work experience. After the shortlist, the candidates are called for WAT- PI rounds conducted by each of the IIMs. The selection at this round is based on the performance at each stage of the round with assessment on past academic records, work experience, co-curricular activities and diversity factors (if applicable).
Predict your overall percentile now by using CAT 2019 Percentile Predictor tool
Each parameter is assigned a particular weight-age on the basis of which the final merit list is prepared. The parameters and their weights vary with each of the IIMs. Some IIMs include CAT score as a parameter for assessment during both the shortlist stages of the selection process.
The six new IIMs, namely IIM Ranchi, Raipur, Rohtak, Trichy, Udaipur, and Kashipur conducts a Common Admission Process (CAP) wherein shortlisted candidates have to participate in common WAT and PI rounds. However, the merit list is declared separately by the IIMs. Last year, i.e. for the admission in 2015-17 batch, the CAP round was conducted by IIM Udaipur.
As the IIMs have announced their selection process, let’s start with each of the admission criteria of 20 IIMs for the academic year 2017-19.
IIM Ahmedabad: This year the IIM-A officials have drastically reduced their minimum CAT cutoff under all the categories to shortlist students for their PGP selection process. The overall CAT cutoff required for a general category student to get shortlisted has been reduced to 80 from last years’ 90 percentile. Apparently, the reduction in CAT cutoff by one of the top IIMs indicate towards a difficult CAT paper this year, and also that other IIMs may follow the same. Not only the minimum CAT cut-off for the general category has been reduced, the cutoff for Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), Non-creamy Other Backward Castes (NC-OBC) and Persons with disabilities (PWD) have been reduced to 70, 60, 75, and 70 respectively.

The cutoff of CAT exam for admission in Nirma University, Ahmedabad is usually around 80 percentile. Hence I am sorry to say that securing a seat in Nirma University would not be possible.
Although there are many other MBA colleges that accept 60 to 70 percentile. I have listed some of the colleges below:
1. Institute of Management Studies, Ghaziabad and Noida
2. Doon Business School, Dehradun
3. IBS Business School, Bangalore
4. School of Management Studies, University of Hyderabad
5. Amrut Mody School of Management, Ahmedabad
6. National Institute of Agricultural Management, Jaipur
Hello there !
Looking for CAT exam is one of the easiest ways to get into a top institutes for pursuing your MBA for admissions into the prestigious Indian Institute of Management (IIMs) . apart from the IIMs, the CAT is also a prerequisite for admissions into numerous other prestigious management colleges across India. The Common Admission Test (CAT) is a computer based examination with a duration of 180 minutes.
Syllabus for CAT: It mainly consists of 3 sections
Preparation for CAT:
In 2018 the overall CAT percentile cut off for IIM Ahmedabad was 80, it highly depends on several factors such as the difficulty level of paper ,no of people appearing etc, for your reference i have attached a link to the previous year CAT cut off for various IIM's here,
Also i have attached the list of top MBA colleges in India here,
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.
