Paras, the expected cut off for IIM K for EWS is as follows:
The minimum sectional percentile needs to be 80, your SSC and HSC percentages need to be 60. With your Academic profile, it is likely that you will be shortlisted for IIM K. We hope you opted for IIM K.
According to the official page, IIM K atleast needs an overall percentile of 90. IIM K has a 3 phase selection process. Once you have been shortlisted based on your CAT, SSC and HSC percentages, you will be called for Personal Interview and Writing Ability Test. A shortlist of candidates in each Category will be created on a computer based index score based on the performance in CAT, HSC asnd academic diversity criterion.
The Aggregate Index Score Computation looks like:
CAT Index Score: 75%
Academic Diversity Factor: 5%
IIM K will conduct the PI and WAT in Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Kozhikode, Mumbai and New Delhi. In this process, the candidates will write an essay and a professional resume which is followed by a PI. The essay topic will be just announced at the venue before the WAT. During the PI, the panel will evaluate the academic efforts and disposition, general awareness and social disposition, attitude and personality and articulation and communication of each Candidate.
The Final score will be computed as follows:
CAT score: 40%
For reservation policy and other information, please visit their official page at: https://iimk.ac.in/academics/pgp/AdmissionsPolicyPGP20192021Batchfinal.pdf
The final admission to IIM depends on the CAT score as well as the performance in Interview round. To get the interview call from IIM K you should get More than 95 percentile in CAT . Your Academics are quite good. After getting the Interview call, if you can perform well in the Interview round you will definitely get admission in IIM K.
You have a decent score in your academics but iimk has very high Cutoff and thus you'll have to aim for more than 99 percentile. But that too will not guarantee your selection for the college. It is possible that candidate who gets call from iimk may be rejected there. For any IIM atleast more than 98 percentile is required as different IIMs have different criteria for call.

Getting into IIMs has always been competitive however that has been the case for the general PG course which is based on CAT scores and subsequent WAT and PI. However in recent times IIMs have realized that specialization is the need of the hour. This is result of diverse adoption of technology expertise across industries which has led to tech knowledge becoming the primary driver of performance. What this has led the IIMs to do is partner up with academic partners to develop specialized courses specific to industries. For example, the
IIM analytics courses (https://mileseducation.com/analytics/home)
by IIM Lucknow are developed together with Wiley innovation council and IIM faculty. Further these courses are customized for business leaders who have the
IIM business and data analytics course (https://mileseducation.com/analytics/IIM-Lucknow)
while there is another custom
Analytics course for finance and accounting professionals (https://mileseducation.com/finance/IIM-Lucknow-Analytics)
. Since these courses are exclusively designed for an industry, the enrollments do not see the generic competition based on CAT scores. You can

and apply for enrollment.
Interestingly these courses give you the IIM Lucknow alumni status as well.
All the best.
