Anshu Saini 20th Feb, 2020
Hi aspirant,
IIMs are known to raise their bars of the expected percentile in the examination. The general bracket of the accepted CAT percentile ranges from 95 to a 99.98 percentile so as to get you a PI, that is, a Personal Interview call from the IIM institutes. In regard to this they also consider 12 and 10 class marks and grade them. With your score you have fair chances of getting a call from IIM ahemdabad but you have to clear analytical written test (AWT) and personal interview for admission. Follow this link for more details-

I got a 99.88 percentile in SNAP 2019 but i believe i can convert IIM A/B/C. Will I have any disadvantage if i give a drop year to prepare for the same? I am a final year student.

Pranav Mishra 8th Feb, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

Symbiosis is also a great college for doing PGDM since it it a one of the tier 1 college but if you want to drop a year for converting IIM than you can do it but remember one thing you should also do something in that one year apart from preparing like any certificate course (Digital Marketing, Advance excel) or work in any social organisation like NGO which not only makes your profile stronger but also gives you an upper hand during the interviews when interviewer ask you about your year gap, So try to do any of these thing apart from preparing.

I hope the above information is beneficial for you.

All the best.

Hi All, I want to apply for IIMs and I have a query regarding EWS certificate. I had applied for EWS but I got it in my regional format (marathi). The college I am applying is not accepting this format. And I am confused of how to apply the format that they want. Does that format has any name ? TIA

Akram Khan 28th Jan, 2020

Hi,

Many institution give the format of the document required in their information brochure or at the official site. So visit the official site of CAT exam. There in the certificate section you will find the format of all the certificate required.

From there download the  EWS certificate. And after proper attestation submit it.

Hope it helps.

I have calls from IIM A,B,C and I am sure I will covert at least one of them. I have a full-time offer from Axtria with in-hand cash 10LPA + other benefits over and above in campus placements. I know its too early to ask without clearing IIM interviews, but which one to choose? IIM/Job?

Vikas gehlot 21st Jan, 2020

The answer depends upon several factors

The first and foremost thing is that if you are interested in management jobs then you should choose IIM but it is not a simple because on one hand you are losing a job and as well as the fee for IIM is very high and you need to take a loan so you have to think on that line also.

The one cases if you are financially very strong and you can find your studies without taking loan then it is best to go for IIM or else if you can get anthem scholarship then it is also good to choose IIM.

In the case when you need to take a loan you need to be prepared that you have to repay the loan and it will take around 2 to 3 years to repay the loan.

The best part in choosing Iim is that you will be going in management jobs and it will guarantee you a safe future.

if you have not explore the field in which you got the job offer then it is also advisable that you explore sometime the field in which you got the job maybe give 2 to 3 years and then try for IIM. Getting into IIM is not an easy job therefore it is recommended that try the best way possible in your interview if you get in then best up on your financial situation you should choose it..
