• Q

    I have 78.48 in VA and 99.09 in QA and 96.98 in LRDI and overall 96.93, having Work ex: 2 years, college score: 84 percent. Can I expect call from IIM Kashipur

  • A

    Last year, IIM Kashipur had set the minimum CAT cut-off at 90 percentile, with minimum 80 percentile as sectional cut-off for all 3 sections. If they maintain the same standards this year also, then you may not receive a call.

     

    However, please make sure that you apply to the IIT MBA Programs, IISc MBA, as you have good overall CAT percentile, and with 2 years of work experience, you have stong chance.  These institutes have a strong reputation (well recognized brand name), as have average placement salaries in excess of Rs. 10 lakh/year.
