What are the colleges one can look for if he/she scores 50 percentile in CAT

Sampriti Student Expert 27th Jan, 2020
With your percentile you can still check out some decent colleges like NDIM New Delhi and JIMS Rohini. They mostly select students on the basis of their performance in GD/PI rounds only. You'll just have to apply for them and appear for the process that take place in various cities throughout the country. These two would be the best options you can have. You can also check out colleges like
  • Krupanidhi School of Management
  • MS Ramaiah Bangalore
  • Bengal college of engineering and Technology
  • ASM's group of institutions
  • Shanti Business School and others

You can also wait for other exams like CMAT if you've applied for it. You can have good number of colleges there also.

Apart from that you can also apply for the written test of IBSAT and your final selection will be based on your performance in GD/PI rounds held in Hyderabad.

Good Luck

Bhavesh, even if you are a PCB student, you can still apply for CAT as the eligibility criteria for the exam requires candidates holding a graduate degree or who are appearing in their final exam of graduation in any discipline from an institution recognised by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India.
