My Graduation Score is 48-49% in BBA Finance. If I score good marks in mat or xat, is there any possibility to get good b school? Please suggest me, Im so confused right now.

Mrityunjay Jha 13th Sep, 2019


First of all, there's no point in dwelling about your past scores, because you cannot change it.

Secondly, if you have decided for once and all , to go ahead with your higher studies, then focus on XAT and MAT, for that matter, since unlike CAT, these exams do not have set any eligibility criteria for appearing in their exams. Your determination need to be strong for this, because this is only what will sail you through all this.Moreover, there are many instances, when people have done extremely well in not just in entrance exams, or business school, even professional career for that matter in  spite of not so good marks in past academics, but does it mean, it all comes easy, absolutely not. You'll have to work hard and focus on what's important right now, that your entrance test, Follow your syllabus, practice previous year papers and sample papers, you can judge yourself, how you're faring, moreover this will also gain your confidence in the time to give exams.

All the best!

Sir i m appearing in cat xat and snap this year want to know which colleges forms are to be filled before these exams

Vishakha 1st Sep, 2019
Dear Vishakha, 7.5 CGPA is nothing less. It approximately converts into 71.25. And then you have above 80% in your 10th and 12th. I would suggest you to atleast score 95% in CAT and you can make it to top B Schools or new IIMs. en there is a rating scale for your score in 10th, 12th and Graduation. Have a look at how the rating scale might look like:

10th Rating:

Percent score           Rating Score

<= 55                                    1

> 55 and <= 60                   2

> 60 and <= 70                   3

> 70 and <= 80                   5

> 80 and <= 90                  8

> 90                                    10

So here you score 8 marks.

12th Rating:

Percent score                Rating Score

<= 55                                         1

> 55 and <= 60                        2

> 60 and <= 70                        3

> 70 and <= 80                        5

> 80 and <= 90                        8

> 90                                         10

Here again you score 8 marks.

Percent score in Bachelor's Degree      Rating Score
<= 55                                                                     1
> 55 and <= 60                                                    2
> 60 and <= 62                                                    3
> 62 and <= 65                                                    5
> 65 and <= 70                                                    8
> 70                                                                      10

This is where you score 10 marks. Few top Schools select top 5% of Candidates in each Category to shortlist for WAT and PI rounds. So to be shortlisted, this is how your CAT percentile should look like:

                                       QA          DLR       VARC       Overall
General:                        70             70           70             80
NC-OBC/Trans:           65             65           65             75
SC:                                 60             60           60             70
ST:                                 50             50           50             60
PwD-UR,OBC,SC:       60             60           60              70
PwD: ST:                      50             50          50               60

If you can make this score, then the CAT composite score will be calculated and that will look like this:

Composite score is calculated as follows:
10th Standard: 36*[Z Candidate-Z min/Z max- Z min]
12th Standard: 40*[Z Candidate-Z min/Z max- Z min]
CAT 2019 score: 20*[Candidate's overall score /Highest CAT score]
Gender Diversity Factor: = 4 for female applicants
=0 for other applicants
Composite score= sum of the above scores
Now coming to the final selection, the computation of final composite score is considered as follows:
10th Standard: 10*[Z Candidate-Z min/Z max- Z min]

12th Standard: 10*[Z Candidate-Z min/Z max- Z min]

CAT 2019 score: 20*[Candidate's overall score /Highest CAT score]

WAT score: 20*[Z Candidate -Z min/ Z max-Z min]

PI score: 40* [Z Candidate-Z min/Z max-Z min]

Sir, Mam I have got 60% in 10th, 50% in 12th. Am I eligible for CAT/XAT ?

Abhijeet Singh Rajpoot 29th Aug, 2019

Hey there

It's true that your 10th and 12th marks matters when you go for interviews of colleges but for appearing in cat 50% is what needed and so do not worry you have got marks and do prepare hard for the exam.

Check about cat
