Hello student yes you've a very well academic background you'll definitely get admission in top MBA colleges if you've score good marks in CAT entrance examination and PI. But if your first aim was CA and you've clear till 2nd stage with good score I'll suggest you not to Quit now its okay if you get demotivated for some time but CA course need lot of patience and hard work you're just few step away to become a chartered accountant so ask yourself if you really want to quit or its something else.
Feel free to comment if you have any doubt
Indian Institute of Management have set criteria for calling candidates for Interview round to which 10th, 12th and Graduation marks contribute. The AR is very crucial for overall CAT score, which is calculated through 0.5*(10th marks) + 1.5*(12th marks) + 2.5*(Graduation marks). [for IIM Ahmadabad]
In your case, you need to score at least 99.5+ percentile in CAT written examination to be called for esteemed and old IIMs'.
Later to which, you will be facing WAP and Personal Interview round, and if you excel in all rounds, your admission would be successful.
