𝑁𝑐y: Normalized score of Performance of the candidate 𝑐 in PI
𝑁𝑐z: Normalized score of Performance of the candidate 𝑐 in CAT - 2020 Absolute Score (overall)
𝑤1: Weight of performance of the candidate 𝑐 in 𝑁𝑐𝑦(70%)

How good is the profile 95/78/84 for IIMs for getting into consulting or banking shortlists during placements? Is it average or below average?
See, your class Xth percentage is very good, but your XIIth percentage is a bit problematic, and your grad is avergae. See, consulting companies look for 'spikes' in your resume. Now, these spikes may be your academics, your past experience, your extracurricular achievements, and things like that. So, even though you have average profile in academics, but if you have some 'spikes' to show, it won't be a problem.
Hope I have answered your question. All the best!
The Query is can i get call from iim lucknow, Ive scored 58% in cbse class 12 board and Ive 7.4 and 7.14 cgpa in 10th and Graduation if I crack 90 percentile (Obc) in CAT. If not call from iim shillong, kozhikode or Dms and what percentile should I target to get call from these institute?
Sorry to inform you but you don't seem to have a decent academics to get calls from IIMs. Despite your OBC status, a score of 70% + in your academics along with 97/98 percentile could have helped you get a call from the baby IIMs too.
However don't get disheartened. Aim for 99 percentile. There might be chances of calls from the new IIMs or other equally good management colleges.
All the best for your future. Incase of any concerns, feel free to comment.
Im belong from general category, and my 10th and 12th score is less than 70%, but my graduation score is 77%, so how much percentile required to take admission in iim shillong or can securea call from iim shillong.., please guide me.
Hope you are doing great as per the question asked by you as you have very average profile as compared so you need to secure more and more percentile so that you get a seat in any I.I.M or in I.I.M shillong. You should try to score more than 98 percentile then only you can secure a rank in CAT exam.
Hope you found this answer useful.Stay motivated stay positive.
All the best!
