What should I fill in "year of passing" in 12th field in CAT form 2020 if I passed 12th in 2016 and appeared for Improvement in all subjects in 2017 ? Also I have improved my percentage so which marks should I enter? Please Help. Remember I passed all my subjects in 2016.
It is a tricky situation but the answer is simple. You passed the senior secondary exam in the year of 2016 so you should mention 2016 as the year of passing. You are saying that you secured more percentage in improvement, then you can mention the improved grades in the form. But at the time of interviews, you will have to carry both the marksheets . Only The one with the more percentage , shall be considered valid. Which is the improved one in your case.
And lastly, dont worry . This does not affect the admission criteria .As long as you have cracked the entrance exam and proved your caliber for the respective exam, you are pretty much good to go.
Does this IIM issue A MBA or PGP certificate for MBA course?

my 10th 12th grad sccores are 86,82,57. I am an maths graduate from presidency UNIVERSITY.I am an SC student.I have been preparing for UPSC for last 2 and half years. BUT I cant crack it. SO I want to give CAT this year. HOW much percentile I have to get to get IIM CALCUTTA. please help me
Your marks are quiet good. As you belong to SC category, it will give you an advantage to clear CAT as the cutoff is less for SC/ST category. However for IIM Calcutta, the cutoffs of previous years papers were 70 percentile for SC category. But remember cutoffs do vary every year and depend on the toughness of paper, the no of candidates appearing in it and so on.
All the best.
