Hence candidates with a consistent high academic performance will be preferred over others even if their CAT score is a bit less. “Such candidates effectively replace candidates who have only a high CAT score but score poorly in terms of their past academic record and work experience. IIMV emphasises consistent and high performance in past academics,” states the B-School.
