The placement process at IIM Ahmedabad was conducted in two stages. The first was the laterals process where firms interviewed students with work experience and offered them mid-level managerial positions. The second stage was the final placement process where firms were grouped into cohorts based on the profile offered, and groups of cohorts were invited to campus across different clusters. As in previous years, students were provided the flexibility of making a “dream” application to any firm of their choice in a subsequent cluster even with an offer in hand. This gave students the flexibility and choice to build careers in sectors of their preference.

As you mentioned your academics score and it is good but at 99 percentile in CAT,you have a lot more chance to get calls from top IIMs like IIM Ahmedabad,IIM Bangalore,IIM Calcutta,IIM Lucknow and IIM Indore.But there is one drawback that you are fresher and you dont have any previous job background which can be a problem for you.So,yes you will surely get call from top IIMs at 99 percentile because it is very good marks.
Hope This Helps
Best Of Luck!!
