QTo get admitted into IIMs'

What should be my average score for CAT in order for me to get admitted to one of the prestigious IIMs'?

Asked By: Manish Chopra,
A Answer By: GetmyuniEnterprise

Candidates having 98, 98+, 99+ percentile in CAT, but lack past academic record, meaning, having 92, 96, 97, 99+ percentage in class 10 & 12 and 78, 80, 85, 88+ percentage in Bachelor’s again loses the chance of being shortlisted into IIMs'.

Another point which must be taken note of is that having an overall percentile of 99+ won’t make you eligible to get that call.

Along with it, you need to have a balanced and high percentile in all the three sections of CAT. Having 98 in QA, 99 in VARC but 75 in DILR would again mean losing that call.

So, If you're a candidate hoping to get admitted to any of the prestigious IIMs', I advise you to keep all your educational records top notch.
