Note:
Apart from IIMs which have declared their cutoff for 2014-16, the other B-School cutoffs are based on that of last year. It is expected that the cutoffs will remain the same or on similar range.

 

As you can see, the CAT cut off percentiles for different set of B-schools ranges from 50 to 100. While the top B-schools like IIMs, DMS IITs, FMS Delhi University have cut off as high as 95+ percentile, many tier II and tier III B-schools with lower ranks have cut off range starting from 45 percentile.

 

Mudra Institute of Communication Ahmedabad (MICA) does not have a particular CAT cut off. The B-School accepts the application of all the candidates who have taken CAT and other national MBA entrance exam and further conducts its own admission test MICA Admission Test (MICAT) to shortlist candidates for Group Exercise and Personal Interview rounds. According to Alliance School of Business (Alliance University), Bangalore the institute does not have a particular CAT cutoff but 70 percentile and above will give the prospective student a fair chance. 

 

Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA) and Goa Institute of Management (GIM) will also accept CAT score but they have not yet declared their CAT cut off. IRMA aspirants have to further take a test on Issues of Social Concern to get shortlisted for the next round of selection.

 

However, there is a caveat. The cut offs of the top B-schools accepting CAT scores is only an indication of the quality of students the institutes look for admitting. Apart from the cut offs there are various criteria for shortlisting and selection such as past academic records, work experience to name a few. Hence it cannot be guaranteed that obtaining the cut off percentile will ensure a call from the B-schools you have applied.

 

Careers360 will update you on the CAT cut off of such institutes as and when they declare the same.
