Let’s understand the process in detail

Step 1: Minimum CAT percentile cutoffs to be considered for PI and WAT process

In CAT 2019 there has three sections, i.e. Verbal Ability (VA), Quantitative Aptitude(QA) and Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DILR). The minimum requirements of securing minimum section-wise and overall percentiles in CAT 2019 to be considered for short-listing candidates is given below:

Candidates securing the above-mentioned minimum percentile in CAT 2019 in every category will only be evaluated for calculation of their composite score in Stage II. Please note that the actual section-wise and overall percentile of a short-listed candidate may be much higher than the above-mentioned criteria as it will depend upon the number of candidates to be called for interview (CFI) in every category.

Step 2: Shortlisting for PI and WAT process

Once the candidates are shortlisted on the basis of CAT cutoff as prescribed by the institute, their past academic records will be estimated. And the shortlisted candidates are called for the selection rounds i.e.,Personal Interview and Writing Test. The following table shows you the percentage-wise weightage assigned to Class X and Class XII scores.

Computation of percentages in Class X and XII

Computation of percentages at Bachelor’s level

Bachelor’s Degree completed

The percentage of marks obtained by the candidate in the graduation (bachelor’s degree) would be calculated based on the practice followed by the university/institution from where the candidate has obtained the degree. In case a candidate is granted grades/CGPA instead of marks, the conversion of grades/CGPA to percentage of marks would be based on the procedure certified by the university/ institution from where graduation has been obtained. In case the university/ institution does not have any way for converting CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by dividing the candidate’s CGPA by the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying the result with 100.

Bachelor’s Degree not completed

The aggregate percentage of marks secured in all the semester/year at the time of filling in the CAT application form will only be considered for granting points.

Dual Degree

The percentage of marks to be considered will be as described in the degree certificate.

Is it possible to get a call from IIM Ahmedabad with 93% in 10th, 95% in 12th, 85% in B.Tech from Tier 3 college without any internships and extra curricular activities and 99%tile in CAT?

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-

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.

Hey,

IIM has given the criteria for PwD under the " Rights of person with Disabilities Act 2006" and according to it, a person must not have disabilities less than 40% , which means disability should be 40% affective.
The categories of disabilities considered under the Act are as follows:
  • Blindness and low vision.
  • Deaf and hard of hearing.
  • locomotor disability including cerebral palsy, leprosy cured, dwarfism, acid attack victims and muscular dystrophy.
  • autism, intellectual disability, specific learning disability and mental illness.
And few others. So according to the last point mentioned above, you are eligible and might get admission in pwd category if you meet the requirements of scores and cut-off and if you fulfill the criteria.

hope this helps!
