Sir I'm Defence personnel (ex servicemen) CW-5 candidate and I wanted to know that what's the cat percentile cutoff for my category in FMS?
Actually FMS goes as per the category in CW quota. There are a total of 12-13 seats which is mostly dominated by cw1 and if their are seats left than they go as per the order from CW1-CW6. So whatever if you score it really doesn't matter a lot if you apply with CW quota.
A score of 90 percentile or more should suffice for getting a call from FMS for the further rounds. Give it your best shot and make the opportunity count.
All the best!
Manny according to the year 2018 for your CW-5 category (Wards of Ex-Servicemen and Serving Personnel including Police Personnel who are in receipt of Gallantry Awards) the composite score cut-off was 33.5/100. This composite score is made on the various parameters such as
- CAT exam score: 60%
- Class 10 marks: 5%
- Class 12 marks: 5%
- Group Discussion: 10%
- Extempore Speech: 5%
- Personal Interview: 15%
if we look last 5-years record then we can see that composite score cut-off for the CW-5 category is in between 30-35 marks out of 100.
For further detail, you can go through this article: https://bschool.careers360.com/articles/fms-delhi-cutoff
So, in order to get a call for the second round of GD, extempore and interview 85+ percentile will be sufficient but in order to increase the probability of your conversion with a decent performance in the second round 90+ percentile in CAT exam will be good. Higher the CAT percentile will take your selection probability high because the CAT percentile is maximum in the final composite score.
Feel free to ask if you have any more queries. All the best!!
Hey for your category it would be 95-96% nothing more than that
good luck for it
