yes girish bro!! dont worry about ur future and dont  neglet ur future thoughts. I think you should remember onething in  your whole life, i.e  fix one goal and do hard work for that goal again and again and dont  compare with others by yourself but you should improve by yourself  and  once again all the best for your future.

Institute for Financial Management and Research

You can check your best possibilities with CAT Pathfinder tool.

Hope this helps.


With overall 98.18 percentile but in VARC 81%ile, can i expect a call with Acad as 10 - 9.6CGPA, 12- 82% and Grad 69.5% with 3.8Years of work Exp?

Saloni Singh 9th Jan, 2020

Hello Varun,

Congratulations on your CAT score. You have very good chances of getting shortlisted to the top IIMs like IIM Lucknow, Indore, Kozikode, Rohtak, Amritsar and Trichy.

Now, with this academic profile and good work experiences, all you need is to prepare for WAT, Group Discussions and Personal Interviews which are a part of further application processes. The cut-offs of the above mentioned IIMs are above 96 percentile and others which I have not mentioned except Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Calcutta have percentiles above 90 only.

So, you'll definitely receive a call from top IIMs and along with that, you still have decent chances for IIM A,B and C as well.

So, Hope for the best !

Feel free to ask about any other query.

Thank-you !

Somrita Bhattacharya 8th Jan, 2020


Assuming you are talking about MDI gurgaon.MDI Gurgaon is one of the best institute for management studies .The overall admission process gives 55% weight age to CAT score and 45% to gd pi and others.On an average the CAT cutoff has always been around 94+.I regret to inform you ,this year you might not get a call from MDI.

Best of luck


for 95.74 percentile will i get admission into MDI gurgaon

Sourandhi Saha Student Expert 6th Jan, 2020
Last year the overall cutoff in MDI Gurgaon was around 95 percentile. But the cutoff doesn't stay the same, it can be higher than before or lower. But depending on previous year, you have a chance to get admission in MDI Gurgaon. But you need to do exceptionally well in GD-PI.
