I am expecting 96-98 percentile in CAT 2020 based on my mocks. I have 89.8% in 10th and 71% in 12th and 68% in M.Tech Integrated Biotechnology (No work ex). Are these scores realistic to convert new IIMs and other colleges like MDI, SP JAIN, IIT etc?
Congratulations for your mock tests score.
The cut-off for top institutions depends upon your background, if you are an Engineer, you are required to score 99 percentile for top 10 colleges of India for MBA which includes IIM A, IIM B , IIM C etc. And if you are from non engineering background then 97-98 percentile also may works for you (general category).
As your 10th and 12th score is also good, you have great Chance of getting Interview calls from old IIMs and definitely from new IIMs too, also Colleges like IMT Ghaziabad, MDI gurgaon will definitely gives you an interview call if you apply for them with 98 percentile.
