    IIM calcutta is one of the top 3 Management institutes in the country. to get admission into IIM calcutta you need to have a strong academic record, good extra curricular activities and atleast 96 percentile in CAT.
    once you clear the cut off declared you will have to appear in another round which usually consists of group discussion, personal interview, essay writing etc ( subject to change without any notice ) . to do well in this round you need good communication skills, a high level of general awareness and the ability to think on your feet.

    all the best

    Hello Friend ,

    As you know IIM Calcutta Institute is one of the most reputed and most acknowledged Institute of all IIMs Institute . And to get admission into IIM Calcutta , i ll let you is not a matter of joke . Candidates needs to bring an excellent score in CAT EXAM say above 95 percentile then only you will be getting chance to get a call . Cracking CAT exam at once is not possible , you have to try at least twice then only you will be able to fetch a percentile in CAT exam .

    so just want to suggest you give your best and do study hard specially the reasoning and logical part . It is one of the toughest question you can ever get in this part , i am saying this as even i have also sat for this exam , and till now i have not been able to give my best .

    The percentile provided above is not correct. For IIM Calcutta, you need to have aleast 99+ percentile with good academic record or 99.8+ percentile with average academic result ( average means 70%+ )

    However, Good percentile will help you get the call for WAT/GD and PI but your final selection would be based on your performance in following components

    1. 10th marks
    2. 12th marks
    3. graduation marks
    4. work ex
    5. CAT score
    6. GD
    7. Personal Interview
    8. Extra Curriculum

    If you do well in all the component then you have good chance of getting into IIMs.

    All the best
