Is it possible to get a call from IIM Ahmedabad with 93% in 10th, 95% in 12th, 85% in B.Tech from Tier 3 college without any internships and extra curricular activities and 99%tile in CAT?

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-

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

Hi,

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.

Harshita Gupta 18th Jan, 2020
Hey,

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!

Now you haven't mentioned your Category and your friend's Category. Now Category plays a role in being shortlisted for Stage 1. Because there is a certain number of Candidates that will be shortlisted for each Category. Now only your CAT scores will be considered to calculate the composite score. The rest depends on your Academics. Now the official website states that the overall percentile might be higher depending on the no.of Candidates to be shortlisted for each Category. So, the Category might have played the difference here.

Class 10th marks in %

2

The above table is followed to allot marks for your 10th and 12th scores. For computing the percentage, the marks of all the subjects in the marks sheet will be considered irrespective of the fact whether they are considered by the Board or not. Now the Bachelor's degree marks are calculated using the following table:

Bachelor's degree marks in %

15.00

≥ 55 and < 60

10.00

≥ 50 and < 55

< 50

02.50


The percentage of marks obtained by the Candidate in the Bachelor's degree would be calculated based on the practise followed by the University/Board. Now the final weightage is calculated as follows:

CAT Weightage: 30

PI: 48

WAT: 10

Points for Non Engineering degree: 04

Work Experience: 08

Total: 100

And finally work experience is calculated using the following tale:
