Check Application Deadlines of CollegesThere isn't much time left in the admission process to start and it is very important to fill and submit application forms of colleges before the deadline. There might not be too many application forms available at this stage, and missing the ones which are available is not recommended. So, candidates should start tracking the application status.
Check Selection Parameters of Management Institutes
More than two lakh candidates appeared for CAT 2019 which was conducted by the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta. Candidates are shortlisted for the admission process in different IIMs on the basis of their CAT scores. There are 20 IIMs in the country and each one of them has different admission criteria. It is imperative to have a thorough knowledge of the selection parameters of management institutes. All the IIMs usually follow a two-step selection process. They are -
Common Admission Test (CAT)
Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI)
However, all IIMs do not conduct any common counselling process. The six new IIMs conduct Common Admission Process (CAP) which includes common WAT and PI rounds. The newly formed IIMs, IIM Sirmaur and IIM Jammu, both mentored by IIM Lucknow do not conduct WAT-PI rounds and declare merit list based on CAT score, past academic records, work experience and diversity factors.
Gear Up for Next Level of Evaluation
As already mentioned, apart from CAT, there are various other evaluating rounds which B-Schools exercise for selecting candidates, namely Writing Ability Test (WAT), Group Discussion (GD), Personal Interview (PI), Essay Writing. Moreover, a few of the institutes consider work experience as well. After CAT results, candidates should focus on equipping themselves with relevant skills to master in the mentioned skill sets. This stage varies from college to college. Based on the overall performance (CAT score, PI, GD, Past Academic Records, etc), the college will offer admission to candidates.
Few Questions that might be asked in the Personal Interview (PI) round are -
Why pursue MBA from this college?

How do you spend your leisure time?
What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Why should we select you?

You can check your other best possibilities with CAT Pathfinder Tool.
Along with CAT score all the colleges in which you apply makes a merit list to call the students for the second round of interview and WSAT which is made in the basis of your aggregate score and which is based on different parameters such as CAT marks, 10th, 12th and graduation percentage, work experience, engineer or non-engineer, gender etc. whose weightage vary according to different colleges.
As far as last year cutoff is concerned which is 78 percentile in CAT you have no chance. Getting good score in MICAT can get you a call till 75 percentile at some conditions but getting less than 70, In my opinion there is no chance, However MICA also accept XAT score so, if you have good percentile like 75-80 in it than you have a chance to convert it.
I hope the above information is beneficial for you.
All the best.
MBA colleges that do not accept CAT or MAT score and placement is good are-
I hope it helps and all the best
