Dear Akshat, CAT is exclusively conducted by the IIMs. So the selection for admission to any of the 20 IIMs is through CAT exam. Unfortunately no other score except for CAT score is accepted for IIM Ahmedabad. You can check their selection process at:
The ideal profile for getting a call from holy trinity ABC is 90+ in 10th and 12th and 85+ in graduation and 1.5 years of work experience. After this profile
will fetch you a call from one of ABC and
will definitely get you a call from ABC and FMS also.
However, generally students having graduation from BCOM/ECONOMICS fields can get a call at 75% also as the IIMs give preference for candidates having non engineer background.
Hope this helps. Thank You.
According to the official criteria given by the IIMs, the minimum graduation percentage required is 50% for General category and 45% for reserved category. So, strictly on the basis of that, you'll be eligible. However,satisfying the eligibility criteria is not a sure-shot assurance for admission. IIM A,B,C especially have a very high standard when it comes to taking admissions. So, try to keep your percentile above 97 and good luck.
