    as per previous year trends you shall need a score of atleast 95 percentile in your CAT exam to clear the cut of IIMs. please note that simply clearing the cutoff does not imply that you get admission. after clearing the cut off you shall have to appear for a second round that usually consists of group discussions, essay writing and personal interviews. only after doing well in this round will you name appear in the final merit list. to do well in this round you need excellent communication skills, good grasp on the current events and the ability to think on your feet. your academic record also comes into play when it comes to the IIMs.

    all the best

    Dear aspirant,

    First of all i would like you to know that when we are talking about CAT, then we have percentile instead of percentage, as it is a relative numbering concept. Your percentile is decided according to your relative position and marks among all the test takers.

    Secondly, there are a total of 13 different IIM institutes in India, each one having different criteria and cut-off. The CAT percentile cutoff(General Category) for all the IIM colleges is as follows (However it may change from year to year):
    [FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]

    [FONT=verdana] [/FONT]
    Minimum CAT Percentile requirements General Category

    QA & DI VA & LR Overall
    IIM B 80 80 90
    IIM C 90 90 95
    IIM C PGDCM 90 90 95
    IIM L 85 85 90
    IIM L ABM 75 75 85
    IIM Kozhikode 55 55 85
    IIM I 85 85 90
    IIM Shillong 65 65 -
    IIM Ranchi
    70 70 90
    IIM Rohtak 80 80 85
    IIM Raipur 70 70 80
    IIM Trichy 70 70 80
    IIM Udaipur 70 70 80
    IIM Kashipur 70 70 75

    However, this is just the minimum requirement for you to be eligible in the 1st round of the selection process. The final calls are made after a number of subsequent rounds.

    All the best!
