Questions related to IIM Bangalore
What should I fill in "year of passing" in 12th field in CAT form 2020 if I passed 12th in 2016 and appeared for Improvement in all subjects in 2017 ? Also I have improved my percentage so which marks should I enter? Please Help. Remember I passed all my subjects in 2016.
It is a tricky situation but the answer is simple. You passed the senior secondary exam in the year of 2016 so you should mention 2016 as the year of passing. You are saying that you secured more percentage in improvement, then you can mention the improved grades in the form. But at the time of interviews, you will have to carry both the marksheets . Only The one with the more percentage , shall be considered valid. Which is the improved one in your case.
And lastly, dont worry . This does not affect the admission criteria .As long as you have cracked the entrance exam and proved your caliber for the respective exam, you are pretty much good to go.
i got 61.69%in 12th HSC,93.6% in 10th ,8.7 CGPA in BE,can i apply for cat and if got good percentile..can i get a call from iimb or iimc?
Usually MBA aspirant thinks that good CAT score is enough to get a call from IIM, but the reality is call from IIM does not only depend upon the CAT score but also depends upon the overall academic performance and WAT/GD rounds. Some IIM's give preference to work experience or UG streams so its totally upon them but only CAT score is not enough to get a call from them.
I hope this will help you.
63/64/62 percentage in 10th/12th/graduation. category sc currently working as bank clerk in sbi total work experience to date is 26 months. what cat score is needed to get a call from IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore and Calcutta.
Sorry for that but your academics are pretty low. But belonging to a SC category might fetch you a chance to get a call from IIM A, B, C. All IIMs have different parameters and the weightage of these parameters also differs from college to college.
I will advise you to personally visit the official website of these college and look for the last year cut offs as well as their criteria of admission. Scoring above 97% percentile will be a pretty decent score and can help you to some extent in getting a call from either of the college.
All the very best.

Do people who have less than 90 percent in 12th get admitted in IIM Bangalore? If anyone could please guide. Regards, Snehansh
Yes they have! What matters the most is your overall profile not one or two features of it. There is no bar that people with less than 90% marks can not be admitted. It only depends on how much you are able to impress them with your overall profile. Try to highlight your work experience if any. It will benefit immensely. Interviewers need to see that seal within you to excel.
