CAT Cut Offs

Common Admission Test or CAT is the most popular MBA entrance exam in our country as it is a gateway to the coveted IIMs and other top B-Schools. CAT is a very competitive exam with approximately 2 lakh candidates vying for about 5000 seats in the IIMs. The computer-based CAT features English, Mathematics, Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation as its components. Moreover, the introduction of the on- screen calculator and the non MCQs in the test was a major shift from the conventional pattern.
This year CAT was held on 29 th November in three slots. Students start preparing for the next round of selection process which includes the WAT/ GD and PI rounds.

Major factors for determining CAT Cut off include the difficulty level of the exam, the total number of students who have appeared for CAT 2020 exam, etc. Due to COVID-19 situation, there were comparatively a lesser number of students who had appeared for CAT exam.
CAT cut offs this year are also expected to be similar to last year's cut offs. Normally, the cut offs for old IIMs have been higher than those for new IIMs. Also, the CAT cut off scores for non-IIMs are lower than that of the IIMs. However, in the recent years, the IIMs have started focusing on profile-based shortlisting with a lower CAT cut off.
