Addressing the students, Mr. Rao shared his learnings while describing his life journey. “In this complex and challenging world, it is very important to develop soft skills and positive attitude. As entrepreneurs, one has to come out of the comfort zone and be emotionally detached in achieving the vision,” he said.

He also advised the students, “Never be egoistic but be humble and polite, embrace the change and take risks”.
Dr. Himadri Das, Director, MDI Gurgaon, asked the students to embrace technology. He said, “we are on the cusp of an era where data science, AI and Machine Learning will completely change the way work is done. If you do not use technology to disrupt business models and leapfrog ahead, technology will disrupt you and make you obsolete. You need to stay ahead of the game and be the agent of technology-enabled change”.
In his speech, Dr. Das also highlighted the achievements of MDI’s highly-qualified faculty members. The Chairman of the MDI Board of Governors, Dr. Emandi Sankara Rao, delivered the welcome address at the event.

Yes you can very well expect a call from all the IIMs except for IIM-A/B/C at 99.30 percentile. Certainly you can get a call from MDI also. However, if you are expecting a call from one of the top 3-4 IIMs, then you have to score a minimum of 99.50 percentile.
Hope this helps. Thank you.

Dear Manavi, the basic eligibility criteria remains 50% Aggregate in Graduation for General Category and 45% for Reserved Categories.For admision to MDI Gurgaon, the following Composite score calculation method is used:
Now coming to CAT weightage, now that CAT is conducted at 2 different slots, IIM Kozikhode follows a unique method of calculating the score. IIM Kozikhode will normalise the CAT scores using percentile equivalence. Adjustment of location and scale differences of score distributions across different norms and then scores will be normalised. These scores will be then converted into percentiles for shortlisting and selection purposes. And B Schools have been giving sectional preference to CAT scores to calculate CAT score. While FMS gives importance to VARC section, all other major IIMs give weightage to QA section. Going by the previous year cut offs, to get into MDI, your CAT score should be nothing less than 93-95%. The reason for their higher cut offs can be justified by their placement opportunities. 138 PPOs were offered to MDI students by 106 participating recruiters. The average salary was 20.13 lakhs and the highest domestic salary was 40.79 lakhs. A candidate with an excellent academic track, has all eligibility criteria points, good communication skills and analytical skills and possesses the ability to take up challenges is called an ideal Candidate. And with your academic track, you can make it to MDI, if you can score a percentile of atleast 95. Last year 55% of CAT score is given weightage. And for an example we shall give you an idea of score for each section of CAT exam and its overal weightage so as to let you prepare accordingly.
IIM QA DLR VARC Overall
Ahmedabad 65 65 65 70
Bangalore 70 70 70 75
Calcutta 65 65 65 70
Indore 70 70 70 80
Lucknow 77 77 77 82
The following formulae are used to calculate your 10th, 12th and Graduation scores:
=0 for other applicants
Remember, that there is no PASS or FAIL score in CAT. Its a measure of your performance among other applicants. Better the percentile, fairer the chance of getting into Top B schools. For example, if your score is 90 percentile, it means you did better than 90 percent of the Candidates who applied. Now cracking CAT and faring better than a certain percent of Candidates totally depends on how you prepare.
Depending on your Category, your CAT percentiles should be near to these numbers:
General Category: 95+
Thanks for the question.. You can definitely get admission in any of the college provided you prepare well for the cat exam and also crack group discussion and interview with flying colours. .as the B schools you mentioned doesn't emphasise more on past academics although in some Institutes you mentioned might have eligibility criteria like minimum 50% required in 10th and 12th...so do take note of such Institutes before filling there forms as you have less than 50% in your 12th..
All the best
