Final Selection Criteria
The candidates who had applied to IIM Nagpur at the time of CAT 2015 registration and also meet the cut-offs, would be receiving an email from IIM Nagpur by April 15, 2016. These candidates express and reconfirm their candidature in the link provided in the mail within the stipulated time.
Past Academic Performance
In this category, IIM Nagpur looks at the candidates’ academic performance in 10th Standard, 12th Standard and Bachelor Degree exams.
For 10th and 12th Standards: The eligible applicants will be assigned rating scores "A" and "B" based on their percentage of marks obtained in 10th and 12th standard examinations respectively.
For Bachelor's Degree: The eligible applicants will be assigned a rating score "C" based on the percentage of marks received in the Bachelor's degree.
The following table brings to you the PAP Rating Scores
Percent score in 10th Std. Exam
> 55 and <= 60
> 60 and <= 70
> 70 and <= 80
> 80 and <= 90
Percent score in 12th Std. Exam
Percent score in Bachelor's Degree
> 52 and <= 55
> 60 and <= 65
> 65 and <= 70
PAP Score for the candidate:
PAP = (0.25*A+0.35*B+0.40*C)/10
Work Experience (WE)
For the work experience of completed months x (at the time of CAT 2015 registration), the candidates will be assigned a WE score using the following formula:
WE = 0 for x < 6
WE = 0 for x > 60
WE = x/30 for 6 <= x <= 30
WE = 1 - ((x-30)/30) for 30 < x <= 60
The Final Selection
The final selection will be based on the ranks of the candidates computed separately for each category (General/SC/ST/NC-OBC/DAP) on the basis of their Final Scores (FS). The numbers selected in different categories will be in proportions mandated by the law.
The FS of a candidate, who fulfils the CAT 2015 cutoffs and who confirms the admission interest will be computed using the following rule:
0.50 * (CAT Total Score /Maximum1 CAT Total Score)
0.30 * (PAP Score)
0.20 * (WE Score)
IIM Nagpur will not conduct Written Ability Test (WAT), Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interview (PI) rounds for the final selection.

You have to score a minimum of 99 percentile to get at least one good IIM call as your academics are not good. You could get a call from new IIMs if you score 99 percentile as the top tier IIMs will not give you a chance due to your poor acads.
Colleges you could look for are like IIM Nagpur, Kashipur, Shillong, etc. These colleges if you study well will provide you with a good package of 10-12 lpa.
Hope this helps. Thank you.
You will not be able to get any good business school like top IIMs, MDI, IIFT, or FMS. However, you can still get a good MBA tier 3/4 college if you increase your percentile to 98 percentile.
However, according to your grads, you must not be disappointed if you don't get a call at 99 because your marks are not good.
Hope for the best. Thank you.
Eligibility for CAT is graduate in any discipline from a recognized university with 50% aggregate, for SC/ST/PwD it's 45%.
So, people from any background can apply for CAT, provided they have required aggregate at their graduation level against their category.
Now, coming to the syllabus for CAT, there's no specific syllabus for CAT, one needs to rely on past years sample papers to get a fair idea about the pattern and weightage given to each topic and section.In general, questions are mostly from middle school level English and Mathematics.
There are mainly three sections in CAT-
Logical Reasoning & Data Interpretation which includes topics such as Tables, Graphs, Data Caselets, Seating Arrangement, Blood Relation, Syllogism etc.
Quantitative Aptitude which includes topics such as Geometry, Algebra, Time and Work, Mensuration, Number System etc.
Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension which includes topics such as Sentence completion, Questions based on reading comprehension, Para-jumbles & para-summar, inferences etc.
To know the detailed topics, kindly go through the following link-
Honestly there is a difference between just finishing the syllabus and preparing for selection in cat. See you can finish the syllabus if you'll work really hard in one month but trust me only unless you are extraordinary you won't be able to get selected for iims or other good colleges. But don't loose hope you should fight till last.
