Eligibility Criteria for CAT 2018:

To start the application process, a candidate must satisfy the CAT eligibility criteria.

The eligibility criteria for CAT 2018 is as follows: 

  • The candidate must possess a Bachelor’s Degree from a recognised institution with minimum 50% marks or an equivalent CGPA.
  • Students who are studying in their last year can apply for CAT 2018.
  • The percentage a candidate obtains in bachelor’s degree is calculated using conversion schemes followed by the concerned university/institution. In the case of grades/CGPA, the conversion would depend on the equivalent certificate awarded by the concerned university/institution and that score can be used to satisfy CAT eligibility.
  • If there is no percentage conversion scheme, the applicant’s CGPA is divided by maximum possible CGPA and the result is multiplied by 100 and that is used to check CAT eligibility.
  • CAT 2018 Reservation Scheme:
  • The CAT reservation scheme is as follows:
  •     CAT Reserved SC applicants: 15%
  •     CAT Reserved ST applicants: 7.5%
  •     CAT Reserved OBC applicants: 27%
  •     CAT Reserved Physically challenged applicants: 3%
  • Candidates coming under the above criteria have to score minimum 45% in graduation to be eligible for CAT 2018.
  • Note: The candidate will only be able to appear for CAT if he/she has satisfied the CAT Eligibility Criteria.
