i have scored 92% in 10th, 67% in 12th and 70% in ug(ongoing) how much should i score in cat to have a good chance of entering iimk or other iims

Anupam Kumar Student Expert 11th Oct, 2019

Hey there

You have a decent score in your academics but iimk has very high Cutoff and thus you'll have to aim for more than 99 percentile. But that too will not guarantee your selection for the college. It is possible that candidate who gets call from iimk may be rejected there. For any IIM atleast more than 98 percentile is required as different IIMs have different criteria for call.

Check iimk cuttoffs

Good luck


What are my chances of getting into top IIMs or the new IIMs. I have 97% in Xth, 93% in XIIth and 59% in UG. Is my UG percent a reason for concern? Except A,B what all IIMs do I have a chance at?

Ashish pal Student Expert 16th Sep, 2019

Hello dear aspirant.

You are having fair chances of getting a good IIM.

You past score is not going to matter that much. Now you have to appear in CAT exam and after that if you qualify that you will be having a written ability test then after personal interview. This procedure makes your merit so try to score as much as you can.

Ok good luck


Sir Im from Sc category, my 10 th cgpa is 8.4 and 12 th is 60% and graduation is 84 if I get 99.95 in CAT will I get call from IIM Kozhikode.Pls help me out with this query !!!

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 10th Sep, 2019
Dear Deepan, in 2018, the cut offs for shortlisting for IIM-K for various Categories are as follows:

CAT Score    Sectional     X Class   XII Class
Percentile    Percentile         %           %
GEN                90                80                60         60
OBC NC          80                70                60         60
SC                   65                50                55         55
ST/PWD          55                40                55         55

Now those Candidates who have selected IIM-K and fulfil this criteria should register themselves. Only successfully registered Candidates will be shortlisted for further rounds which are WAT and PI based on Aggregate Index Score. The Aggregate Index score os calculated as follows:

CAT 2020 Index Score:       75%
Class XII Percentage:         20%
Academic Diversity Factor:  5%

And the final Composite score is calculated as follows:

CAT 2020 Index Score:  40%
PI:                                   30%
Essay:                             20%
Resume:                         10%

So if you can manage to get 99.5% in CAT amd do well in WAT and PI, you can get a seat in IIM-K

My 10th,12th and grad is (76,90,73)% how much percentile in cat I need to get a call from iim kozhikode and fms Delhi. (NC-OBC)

Snehlata Sinha Student Expert 8th Sep, 2019

As per 20172019 admission policy your break up will be as follows:

To get shortlisted for a interview call :

5.7 out of 7.5 for HSC

4.29 out of 7.5 for Graduation score.

1 out of 5 for Work Experience. (anything above 36 months gets you 1)

0 out of 5 for Academic and Gender diversity.

Rest 75 are for your CAT Score.

A decent 98 percentile might get you an interview call but converting the call will become difficult. As final shortlisting has a 35% weight to CAT score, rest being the PI and GD/ WAT scores along with work experience quality.

So, CAT score will be the real differentiating factor. Target anything above 99 and a decent WAT/ PI will sail you through IIMK

Sir/Mam If I receive a average package of 24L per annum in IIM Kozhikode then how much salary will I get on the first month of salary?

Ritik nakra Student Expert 4th Sep, 2019

Hey Deepan! Congratulations you have cracked very nice package. The package you got is the dream package for many of the candidates. So coming back to your question ₹ 24 lakhs per annum means, ₹ 2 lakhs per month so after some additional cuts (like PFs) you must get around ₹ 1.80 lakhs per month.
