Anshu Saini 15th Feb, 2020
Hi aspirant,
you donot need to apply separately for any IIM, but need to make sure that you tick the check boxes of all IIMs which you want to apply, in CAT application form. However, for non-IIMs, like FMS, SPJIMR,you will need to apply separately.
Hope this helps.

hi...i belong to st category women with 40.97 percentile in cat..i have a call from iim rohtak..will i be able to convet it with 92.8/85.5/81.9 in 10th 12th and engineering..?? should i attend wat and PI which is happening in delhi..??

Sampriti Student Expert 7th Feb, 2020
You must attend the GD/PI for IIM Rohtak which will take place from 10th-15th February 2020. IIM Rohtak and IIM Calcutta are the IIMs who really provide opportunities to women and to the students falling in reserved category. If you perform exceptionally well in the WAT and PI rounds you can easily get through. Moreover your final selection will depend upon the following factors

CAT scores = 50%
PI = 30%
WAT = 10%
Academic Records =10%

Since you have a good academic record you'll just have to perform well in WAT and PI and do focus more on your application form as they usually ask maximum questions from a candidate's profile .

Good Luck

CATEGORY- NC OBC FEMALE CAT- 82.92 percentile 10th - 89.6 12th - 70.4 Grad- BCA: 76.05 Post Grad - MCA: 84.06 Work Ex- 30 months Can I expect calls from IIT Madras, IIT Kanpur, IIT Roorkee, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, NITIE, IIM Amritsar, IIM Shillong, IIM Udaipur, IIM Rohtak?

Yashu Shrivastava 28th Jan, 2020

Hello Prabhakar

With 82.92 percentile in CAT and as you have mentioned your academics and it is more than average and also your work experience will be beneficial for you,there are some chances that you will get call from these colleges.It all depends on the sectional cut off in all 3 sections of CAT.

However there are some other top colleges where you can get admission with this percentile,you can check them here https://bschool.careers360.com/articles/what-if-my-cat-percentile-between-80-and-90-do-i-have-any-chance-at-top-b-schools

I Hope This Information Helps

Best Of Luck!!!


CAT 82.98 overall, OBC, Acad scores are 93/91/72 with Bcom background, 21months of work exp as accounts payable associate in Cognizant BPO, got calls from IIM Rohtak & Visakhapatnam, didnt applied for any other college yet. Considering my profile please suggest some good colleges to apply for MBA

Soumya Kanta Sarkar 19th Jan, 2020

Hi Arshad,

I would like to congratulate you on securing such a decent percentile in CAT. Considering that you are from OBC category will enhance your chances of securing a call from good B-Schools. I am listing down some of those B-Schools from which you can expect a call with their average salary:


Average Salary Package(in Lakhs Per Annum





IFMR, Chennai


IIM, Ranchi




KJ Somaiya, Mumbai


Welingkar, Mumbai


However, this is not an exhaustive list and there are some other colleges from which you can expect a call. You will have to appear for another test for admission in IRMS and your CAT score will only act as a qualifying one.

Your graduation in BCom will serve you as a catalyst since colleges prefer diversity in their batch as most of the people doing their MBA nowadays are engineers.

Now, since you have a fair understanding of the colleges, you may as well start preparing for Group Discussions and Personal Interviews since you won’t be having ample time of preparing once the colleges start rolling out the shortlist and summon you to appear for their GD/WAT/PI process.

I hope I have been able to solve your query. Do write to us in case of further  doubts and we will be glad to help you out. All the best!!!
