what is the persentile in Cat to call IIM Bangalore???

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 12th Dec, 2019

hi,

to get a call from iim bangalore not only depends on cat score but also it depends on your academic curriculum, work experience etc. iim bangalore has 40% weight age to cat score and 50% weight to academics and 10% is on gender diversity and work experience. see as per previous years cutoff and students review you need to have more than 95 percentile in cat exam to get a call from iim's if you belongs to general category.

so study hard and best of luck.
