What if my CAT percentile is between 80 and 90? - Getting 100 percentile in CAT is the first dream of any management aspirant. But the truth is 5 to 10 of the candidates able to achieve this benchmark. But, there is a huge number of candidates who fall between 80 to 90 percentile in CAT. The majority of top B-schools will require more than 90 percentile in CAT which makes tricky situations for those who got 80 to 90 percentile. Candidates started thinking “Will I able to secure a seat in reputed management college of not”. Apart from IIMs and top institutes, there are many good B-schools who shortlist candidates on a lesser percentile. However, after one clear CAT and scored well, they still have to go through with Written Ability Test (WAT), Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interview (PI) to get admitted in a B-school.

The duration of the exam is 3 hours for all the categories and 4 hours for the PwD category. The sectional duration for each section is 60 minutes each whereas it is 80 minutes for the candidates of the PwD category.

The total number of questions asked in the entrance exam are 100. It is a computer based examination.

Candidates lose 1 mark for each incorrect answer and gain 3 marks for every correct answer. No marks are deducted for the questions which the candidate didn't attempt.

The examination consists of 3 sections namely - Quantitative ability , Data interpretation & logical reasoning and Verbal ability and reading comprehension. These sections consists of 34,32 and 34 questions each respectively.
