10th/12th/B.tech = 87.4/79/78.2 General+Engg.+Male, 1.8 yrs Exp. Hw much percentile shuld i score to get IIM and othr gud MBA clgs?

srikar kanakala 16th Mar, 2020
Hi Aman,

You have a very decent academic record which have chances of getting a seat in a good MBA institute. You have good work experience also but it would have been better if it was 24 months i.e 2- years as it is the span of work experience which evryone considers as ideal work experience. You don't have any problem even if you have 1.8 years work experience it's quite enough to raise your bar while applying for an admission.

If you are aiming for IIM's you definitely need to have CAT percentile above 99 or atleast 98 Irrespective of your category. Even 99 isn't a promising percentile for tier-1 IIMs. Besides CAT percentile there are lots of factors involved in the selection process for IIMs. CAT score helps you to proceed to the next step in the admission process and plays a nominable role in the selection process. There are many aspirants who scored above 99 percentile and didn't receive a call for next step from any of the IIMs. Whatever it is better to score  percentile above 99.

For other MBA institutions CAT percentile above 90 will be a promising score. Every institution doesn't maintain same cut-off, so if you maintain above 90 you can meet the criteria of most of the colleges. Apart from IIMs there are many good colleges for MBA.

Hlo, what percentile should a general category male engineer aim for a call & conversion for iimL or NITIE. My academics are 72%, 70%, 78% in 10th 12th & graduation respectively.

Rehan Alam Student Expert 7th Mar, 2020

Dear Aspirant,

Your 10th and 12th marks are below average and since you are a general engineer male, that also diminishes your chances of getting a call. However, you can expect a call at 99.5 percentile, but converting the call will also be a very difficult thing.

You can expect calls from New IIMs and baby IIMs after 99 percentile. For NITIE too this will suffice.

As a GEM what should be my cat score to get calls from atleast one of the IIM-BLACKI [top 5 iims ]?

Rehan Alam Student Expert 27th Feb, 2020

Dear Aspirant,

As a GEM, you must need to have  a good to excellent academic background to get a call from these IIMs. A good academic background will be:

X - 90% +

XII - 90% +

Engineering - 75% +

CAT - 99.5 percentile

And an excellent academic background will be

X - 90% +

XII - 95% +

Engineering - 85%

Work-Ex - 1.5 year

CAT - 99 percentile

For a good profile you might miss a call from one of the holy Trinity, but for an excellent profile, you'll definitely get a call.

Hope this helps. Thank you.

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-

I have 81% in 10th & 61% in 12th & 60% in graduation(B-Tech). 0 work experience.I can eligible for IIm L,C,K,B,I.FMS? and What is the CAT %le required (C-OBC) to get into these iims?

Sampriti Student Expert 18th Jan, 2020
The top IIMs require atleast 80 percentile for the OBC candidates but considering your profile you must score minimum 85-90 percentile in order to get a call from the top IIMs and for FMS you should have a minimum of 90 percentile in CAT. You must equally focus on other factors like maintaining a good sectional cutoffs of 85-90 percentile in all the 3 sections.

If you're planning to appear for CAT in 2020 then you still have some time. Try to work on your profile like participating in national events or doing certain internships as that will increase your chances of getting a call and will also help in further career expansion.

Good Luck
