IIT Kanpur has started using the CAT score to short list candidates for group discussion and interview for admission to MBA. The IIT Kanpur MBA cut off was expected to cross the 90 percentile score in CAT as it is a well-known, reputed institution.The actual figures after the declaration of the CAT results were higher than the expected value.The IIT Kanpur MBA cut off was decided by the IIT authorities on the basis of the number of applicants, their scores and its own internal benchmarks. Though the cutoff figures are an important tool to identify candidates for interview and group discussion, one has to perform well in the second phase also to secure a seat.
After appearing for the Common Admission Test (CAT), the students can resolve the dilemma of choosing an appropriate college according to their percentile by matching the cutoff figures of various colleges to their CAT percentile.The last date of application at most MBA colleges is from November to January. So if you have done engineering and are desirous of an MBA degree from a good institution, you can apply to IIT Kanpur, if your CAT score is reasonably above the cut off figures. Depending on the cut off figures, you may be invited for the second phase of the selection process - Group Discussion and Personal Interview.The final selection process also takes into consideration for a variety of factors such as academic background, work experience , gender diversity , CAT score as well as the Group Discussion and Personal Interview (GD/PI) scores..
