Step 3: Criteria for Final Selection for the MBA Programme
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:

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.
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.
For calculating, the percentage of marks secured in Class X and Class XII, the aggregate marks of all subjects that appear in the mark sheet would be evaluate irrespective of whether the Board considers them for calculation of percentage or not.

Class XII Marks (in percent)
≥75 and < 80
≥ 75 and < 80
≥70 and < 75
≥65 and < 70
≥60 and < 65
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.
The percentage of marks to be considered will be as described in the degree certificate.
