What should be the score in CAT to get a call from IIM-A,L for admission in Agribusiness management course.
According to the admission criteria released by IIM Ahmedabad and IIM Lucknow, the minimum CAT percentile required is 80 percentile and 85 percentile respectively. However, in reality, there is a huge gap between the actual cutoff and that released in the admission criteria. Hence, securing around 90 percentile might fetch you a call, provided you fulfill other criteria such as academic profile, work experience, diversity factors etc. Check the admission criteria of IIMs below:
* In IIML, to get a call for PGP-ABM, you need to not only clear the aggregate cut off but also the sectional cutoffs (preferably above 80 percentile in each section). I know of a person, who had a percentile above 90, had academic diversity too but couldn't clear sectional cutoff of one section, because of which he couldn't receive a call for GD-PI from PGP-ABM.
* There is no such sectional cut off criteria for IIMA-FABM program.
In your question, you asked about score. Dear, scores actually do not make much sense in exams like CAT which is a percentile based evaluating exam. However, as per trends, a score above 120 will fetch you a percentile that can be sufficient to get a call for FABM and ABM programs of IIMA and IIML respectively (provided you meet certain other institutional criteria as well).
Wish you all the best!!
