CAT 2015 Cutoff

CAT cutoff is the minimum marks or the least percentile decided by the IIMs and other B-Schools after taking into consideration various factors. It is important for the CAT aspirants to clear the sectional and overall cutoff. Only candidates who will obtained a percentile more than or equal to the CAT 2015 Cutoff were only considered for IIM admissions. All IIMs follow their own selection process, distinguished from each other. IIMs not only consider the CAT score but also take into consideration the academic record, work experience and participation of the candidates in extra-curricular activities. So only achieving high percentile in CAT 2016 will not guarantee admission into IIMs. In past, we have seen candidates not having a high percentile but getting admission into IIM based on their overall profile.

IIMs individually announce the admission criteria every year. They decide on the selection process, weightage to be be given each attribute and the qualifying percentile, which is called as the minimum percentile of CAT. The students often mistake this minimum percentile as the actual cutoff. But, it is just the minimum qualifying score, which must be obtained by every CAT aspirant. The actual cutoff remains quite high as compared to this minimum cutoff. The candidates who score equal to or more than this minimum percentile are only considered for preliminary shortlisting.
