CAT 2017 Selection Process
It is important for candidates to score a good percentile in CAT 2017 in order to be shortlisted for the selection process. Although a percentile above 90 is desirable, it is not the only criteria on which candidates are shortlisted for AWT (Academic Writing Test) and Persona Interview (PI).
While the process of shortlisting may vary a bit across the IIMs, each IIM assigns certain points to marks scored by a candidate in class 10, class 12 and degree programme. Due account is also given to the stream of education pursued by the candidate.
In case of non-IIMs which accept CAT score for shortlisting, a higher weightage may be given to the percentile scored in CAT.
