CAT (Computer Admission Test)
CAT or Computer Admission Test is considered one of the crucial tests for the students those want to take admission in to best management institutions across the nation.

Each year the test is organised by any of the IIM, in accordance with a rotation policy. Apart from the written exam, the students have to face different other rounds like GD, PI, as well for taking admission in to various management colleges.

Check your CAT 2014 result:

High score is not necessarily the only point for IIMs:
IIMs have already revealed the cut off criterions and different other management institutions those deal with CAT scores are going to reveal their cut off percentages within a few days. The very first aim for every student who has appeared in the CAT exam remains for getting a seat in the IIMs.
Anyway, interesting thing here is to mention that a higher percentile is not the exclusive selection criteria. It was witnessed in last year that most of the students with almost 99 percentile score were not chosen for the next level. On the other hand, those even with 90 to 92 percentile received a call from IIMs. It is a fact that IIM has assigned minimum cut off mark for the students to be more than 90 percent, but, IIM also have different other selection criterion as well. Importance is also given to a candidate’s profile while selecting them for the ultimate round.
