If YES please help me with the list of IIM and Bschool where I can apply,Your help & guidance is much appreciated to go ahead with CAT.Awaiting reply Thank You!


The CAT test is the initial requirement for admission to the IIMs. The Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview are the following phases (PI). The WAT and PI are the primary selection factors for admission to IIM MBA. They take place following the release of the CAT results. Candidates are shortlisted for WAT and PI if they fulfil the CAT cutoff. Final admission decisions are made based on a candidate's entire profile, which includes their CAT, academic, work, and category scores as well as their WAT and PI scores.

Look at the IIM's qualifying requirements below:

  • The minimum graduation requirement for admission to an IIM is 50% overall, or an equivalent CGPA (45% for SC, ST, and PWD/DA categories).
  • Candidates who are taking the bachelor's degree/equivalent qualification test in their final year or who are awaiting their results may also apply.
  • The candidates must satisfy the IIM shortlist/qualifying cut off in order to be called for an IIM interview.
  • The minimal IIM call cut off must be met in order for applicants to be eligible for interview calls and to take part in WAT/GD-PI.

So, you are eligible to apply for CAT to get into IIM.

There are so many IIM and you are eligible for all if you CAT cutoff is above 90.

IIM colleges like IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore, IIM Calcutta, IIM Lucknow, IIM Indore, IIM Kozhikode and many more.

Try hard and give your best to clear CAT and personal interview.

Best Wishes for your future.

Thank You

K J Somaiya Institute of Management for MBA or IIM Amritsar for MBA

Hello Aspirant,

Hope you are doing well !

Keeping in mind, both K J Somaiya Institute of Management, and IIM Amritsar both are really good colleges, in my opinion, IIM Amritsar would be the better option.

Though K J Somaiya's Highest package(26.5 LPA) is more than IIM Amritsar's(25.21 LPA). IIM Amritsar's average placement(14.63 LPA) is better than the other(10.59 LPA).

Also one of the most important quality you get in an IIM is it's brand. There is no doubt that IIM Amritsar has a brand much stronger than the other.

Hope my answer would help you.

Having said this, IIM Asr has updated the Application status of its Candidates and it can be checked at:

CATEGORY- NC OBC FEMALE CAT- 82.92 percentile 10th - 89.6 12th - 70.4 Grad- BCA: 76.05 Post Grad - MCA: 84.06 Work Ex- 30 months Can I expect calls from IIT Madras, IIT Kanpur, IIT Roorkee, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, NITIE, IIM Amritsar, IIM Shillong, IIM Udaipur, IIM Rohtak?

Hello Prabhakar

With 82.92 percentile in CAT and as you have mentioned your academics and it is more than average and also your work experience will be beneficial for you,there are some chances that you will get call from these colleges.It all depends on the sectional cut off in all 3 sections of CAT.

However there are some other top colleges where you can get admission with this percentile,you can check them here

I Hope This Information Helps

Best Of Luck!!!

Cat = 76.45 percentile. with 65+ sectional. NC-OBC. 10th = 76% 12th = 73.6% B.Com = 73.15% Work ex = 14_15 months. Can I get a call from IIM Amritsar?

With the percentile you're mentioning the chances of getting IIM Amritsar is a little low. Though they require a minimum of 75 percentile for NC OBC candidates but they mostly look at the academic background also. Also considering the fact that you've got work experience for quite some time so it would add onto your profile.

So even if you get a call you'll have to work extremely well in the subsequent selection processes to get a seat. Just give your 100 percent there.

Apart from that you can get other very good Institutes like
  • IMI Delhi
  • IMT Ghaziabad
  • XIMB Bhubaneshwar
  • GIM Goa
  • BIM Trichy and other colleges
Since these are older colleges you'll also get good alumni network and good job opportunities.

All the very best

College Infrastructure

Currently not having a permanent campus, all the classes are held in a transit campus which is a part of Polytechnic college LK Gujral University, Amritsar. Though the permanent campus is a work in progress and probably will be done by the year end.

It's a good as a third gen IIM.

Verified Review

College Infrastructure

The infrastructure of the college is good and developing. It now has a transit campus since 9 years but the new campus will be there by mid 2024 (as assured by our students council). It will be great one day.

A rising worthy IIM with enormous potential.

Verified Review

College Infrastructure

The institute is rapidly growing and marking its presence in the global industry. The only current con is the absence of a permanent campus that will be inaugurated in June 2024. This single phenomenon will exponentially upsurge the development of the institute.
