How will I get a call from Management Institutes?
Getting a call from IIMs or other Management Institutes in India completely depends on certain attributes, which are as follow –
- Overall percentile score of CAT
- Overall CAT Score
- Academic Record and Work Profile of the candidates
- Work Experience
In the last week of January 2017, the IIMs are required to issue the first shortlist furnishing the names of the candidates who will be called for required the further selection process. This first shortlist will be prepared on the basis of CAT score/percentile and applicants profile. Individual admission criteria have been issued by each IIM and they will follow the same for short- listing the candidates for further process. The competitor's performance in CAT 2018 will play an important role in the short- listing process.
A balanced high percentile is required for being short- listed. Along with the overall percentile, the competitors will also require high percentile over all the 3 sections. For the new IIMs, the sectional cutoff percentiles is required to be around 85+ and 90+ for the current ones. So it means that an applicant who scores in totality around 96 percentile with 90 in DI and LR, 94 in Quant and 86 in Verbal may get a call from IIMs. However, a competitor with a general score of 99 percentile getting 97 in Quant however 78 in Verbal would miss out a great opportunity of the call. The list of short- listed applicants will be made available on the respective official sites of IIMs.
