87 percentile in cat 2019 with 40.xx %ile in VA so which college is there in which I can consider?

Bhaskar Nakkina Student Expert 7th Dec, 2019


The Cut off to IIM's and Business Schools depend on the Highest mark and difficulty level of the exam. As there is no official Highest mark, we have to wait till the Results are released. 87 percentile in CAT is a good Score. You can get good Business Schools but difficult to get IIM's.


how many iim does not take PI WAT?


Hi Swapnil

Most IIMs take WAT or the written ability test where one is given around 15- 30 minutes to write an essay on any given topic. Only two IIMs- Kozhikode and Shillong take GD. But all of them conduct Personal Interview or PI.

The weightage of CAT score, academic qualifications, work experience, GD/ WAT and PI differs from college to college. You can find the detailed list on the given link: https://www.imsindia.com/CAT/iims-shortlisting-criteria.html

Rohit 7th Dec, 2019

Dear aspirant

Whether you get a CAT call depend upon a lot of factors.First of it depends on which IIM you are looking to get into.Your grades in 10nth 12th and BTech is very good.But your CAT score is a little low.But it doesn't matter.IIMs like Indore give more weightage to your 10nth and 12th marks.Some don't even consider your undergraduate marks.So it all depends.I think you have a good chance of getting a CAP call for sure.All the best
