MICA, on December 23, 2015, announced the MICAT 2015 shortlist along with MICAT II dates. According to its dates, the second MICAT is scheduled to be conducted on February 14, 2016, in computer-based mode. This announcement by the MICA officials, however, disappointed many candidates who were planning to take either ATMA February 2016 or IRMA 2016 exam, scheduled on the same day. This announcement of dates by MICA officials has added to the resentment of candidates who are already disappointed over non-disclosure of the MICAT 2015 score cards. After MICA announced results for MICAT-1 on December 23, many test takers questioned its shortlisting criteria for next stage of selection process. The candidates also sought to know their scores and cutoffs and expressed their anguish by commenting on the special Facebook page of ‘MICA Official Discussion Group 2016’.

After MICA aspirants realised that the MICAT II test date clash with that of IRMA and ATMA, many took to social networking sites to express their disappointment. They also demanded re-scheduling of the test dates so that they can appear in other national level MBA entrance examinations as well. One of the aspirants, Apeksha Mehta requested MICA authorities to change its exam date. 

 
MICAT II, ATMA, IRMA Dates clash

 

MICA officials have, however, not responded to the requests of MICA aspirants. 

 

ATMA 2016, conducted by Association of Indian Management Schools is scheduled to be conducted on February 14, 2016, in paper-pen format across centers. The MICAT II dates also clashes with IRMA 2016, conducted by Institute of Rural Management, Anand on February 14, 2016.

 

Incidentally, both ATMA 2016 and IRMA 2016 exam dates were announced much earlier, hence it is likely that MICA may change the exam date. Earlier, during the announcement of MICAT – I, the exam was dated on December 20, which was also the date for SNAP 2015, which was announced much earlier. MICA had promptly preponed the date to December 13, 2015. Careers360 will keep you updated with any change in schedule related to MICAT – II.

I got 89%ile in XAT but only 83%ile in CAT. Will they consider my XAT score instead of CAT? And how much will I have to score in MICAT 2, say with a decent attempt of the descriptive section?

Sampriti Student Expert 4th Feb, 2020
Your XAT scores would be considered during the final selection if you've applied through both CAT and XAT. Meanwhile if you manage to score above 50 in MICAT then considering your XAT percentile, which is very good, you can easily get through if you perform well in the subsequent selection rounds. For the descriptive test the best attempt was to answer all the 4 questions. The first 2 being of 10 Mark's each and the 3rd and the 4th questions being of 20 and 30 respectively. So if you managed to do atleast the first 3 questions then that would be even better and can assure you a higher chance of final selection. The final selection is based on the following criteria

CAT/XAT percentile = weightage is 20%

MICAT = 30%

Group Discussions/Group Exercise = 20%

PI = 30%

i have score of 95 in cat and i was thinking how much should i score in micat to assure a call??

Pranav Mishra 26th Jan, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

Your percentile in CAT is great congratulations for it, Now the marks you should need to score for getting a call will be 50+ to make yourself in a good position for getting admission, Although there are students who got less than 50 marks in MICAT and get a call but it is not a safe score for MICAT, So I would suggest you to score above 50 in MICAT exam for making yourself in a safe side for admission.

I hope the above information is beneficial for you.

All the best.

my cat percentile is below 70, is there any chance that i will be further considered if i score well in micat?

Pranav Mishra 17th Jan, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

As far as last year cutoff is concerned which is 78 percentile in CAT you have no chance. Getting good score in MICAT can get you a call till 75 percentile at some conditions but getting less than 70, In my opinion there is no chance, However MICA also accept XAT score so, if you have good percentile like 75-80 in it than you have a chance to convert it.

I hope the above information is beneficial for you.

All the best.

My CAT percentile is 79. Ill be taking micat 2. Will I have any chance to compete after good micat scores despite my low cat percentile?

Harshita Gupta 16th Jan, 2020

Hey,

During the selection process, CAT will have 20% weightage and MICAT will have 30% weightage. So, if you score well, your chances may increase. Your academic scores and your performance in GD and PI also matter when it comes to admission.
