Anshu Saini 20th Feb, 2020
Hi aspirant,
IIMs are known to raise their bars of the expected percentile in the examination. The general bracket of the accepted CAT percentile ranges from 95 to a 99.98 percentile so as to get you a PI, that is, a Personal Interview call from the IIM institutes. In regard to this they also consider 12 and 10 class marks and grade them. With your score you have fair chances of getting a call from IIM ahemdabad but you have to clear analytical written test (AWT) and personal interview for admission. Follow this link for more details-
Hope this helps.

Hi All, I want to apply for IIMs and I have a query regarding EWS certificate. I had applied for EWS but I got it in my regional format (marathi). The college I am applying is not accepting this format. And I am confused of how to apply the format that they want. Does that format has any name ? TIA

Akram Khan 28th Jan, 2020


Many institution give the format of the document required in their information brochure or at the official site. So visit the official site of CAT exam. There in the certificate section you will find the format of all the certificate required.

From there download the  EWS certificate. And after proper attestation submit it.

Hope it helps.

IIM has given the criteria for PwD under the " Rights of person with Disabilities Act 2006" and according to it, a person must not have disabilities less than 40% , which means disability should be 40% affective.
The categories of disabilities considered under the Act are as follows:
  • Blindness and low vision.
  • Deaf and hard of hearing.
  • locomotor disability including cerebral palsy, leprosy cured, dwarfism, acid attack victims and muscular dystrophy.
  • autism, intellectual disability, specific learning disability and mental illness.
And few others. So according to the last point mentioned above, you are eligible and might get admission in pwd category if you meet the requirements of scores and cut-off and if you fulfill the criteria.

hope this helps!

KUNAL LANJEWAR 17th Jan, 2020


Yes. You have a chance of getting a call from IIM Bangalore.

The eligibility criteria for getting selected by IIM Bangalore is :

  • Minimum 50% in 10 + 2 + Graduation
  • Required CAT percentile
  • Minimum 4 years work experience in respective field

The candidates who clear the above eligibility criteria are shortlisted and they are further sent for further shortlisting.

The further shortlisting is done on the basis of Personal Interview, Written Ability Test. The candidate clearing all the stages are finally selected for admission in IIM Bangalore.

You can receive a call, but you will face problems during shortlisting, as the percentage of 10th, 12th and graduation play a very important role in shortlisting.

Best Wishes.
