Latest Applications Open 2024:

The CAT, commonly known as the Common Admission Test, is a National Entrance Test. This exam is regulated by the 19 Indian Institute of Management (IIM) on a rotating basis. CAT is organized to provide admission to different management colleges’ management programs.

It is a computer test. IIM, Calcutta, will conduct it. Here we provide information on the CAT percentile 2023.

The best B schools have a higher range of CAT thresholds, 90+ percentile, while the mid-range B-School cutoff range, 75% 80th percentile and the lower B-School limits have a cutoff range of around 50 percentiles. The Result of the CAT will be published in January 2023.

CAT 2023 Percentile 

A percentile represents the range of candidates for the exam. To calculate the percentile, institutions follow the CAT marking system. The answers will be verified, and a total score will be determined.

The total score will be adjusted through a process called “equation”. Then the score will be standardized in different sections. Subsequently, the standardized score obtained by the candidates will be converted into percentiles for selection purposes.

The CAT result will be announced in January 2023. Candidates can download their CAT scorecard through online mode.

Candidates will get a call from different IIMs & other non-IIM management institutions based on CAT percentile, CAT score & the sectional cut-offs for the next round.

CAT Percentile Calculations As per IIMs

IIMs give weightage to CAT scores in the range of 60 to 80%, and the remaining is contributed by a candidate’s academic record & work experience.

IIM Ahmedabad: The Institution gives 70% weightage to CAT Score & 30% to the academic record, work experience & extracurricular activities. The Cut-off of IIM Ahmedabad is probably to be 99.5 percentile.

IIM Calcutta: This institution grants a 67% weight to the CAT Score and 30% of the academic records. The remaining 3% is given to the candidates. The Calcutta IIM threshold is likely to be 99 percentiles.

IIM Bangalore: the institution does not have the criteria of difficult percentiles for the second round of shortlisting. The institution gives great importance to the academic record of candidates (grades 10, 12 and high school graduates) and the CAT percentile.

IIM Lucknow & IIM Kozhikode: These Institutions give the CAT Score 70 to 80% weightage.

Other IIM Institutions: All the other Institutions give overall weightage to the CAT score.

The lowest percentile expected for a call from the new IIMs should be 96-97 percentiles.
