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.
Hope this helps. Thank you.
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
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.
