Chhavi Gupta

More than 100 other non-IIM institutions also use CAT score for admission to their management programmes.

As per the official press release from IIM Lucknow, a total of 1,99,632 candidates had appeared for the exam, which was conducted in two shifts at test centres spread across 140 cities.

He said he is happy three non-engineering students have scored 100 percentile in CAT this time, "taking down the myth that only engineering students score well in the test". This year, two women made it to the top scorers. In order to ensure fairness and equity in comparison of performances of the candidates across different test sessions, the scores of the candidates shall be subjected to a process of Normalization.

As many as 20 students have scored 100 percentile in the examinations.

He is preparing for the exam for last one year. Section - I had verbal ability and reading comprehension; section - II had data interpretation and logical reasoning and section - III dealt with quantitative ability.

In English, he scored 95.69 percentile. But qualifying CAT does not guarantee the applicant admission to the IIM as candidates who clear the percentile criterion set by each IIM will have to appear for a group discussion and personal interview at last stage.

Beri, who said he has got calls from the IIMs in Ahmedabad and Bangalore already, shared his mantra: "I did not have any fixed hours for studying for CAT, but I took two or three days to analyse after taking a mock test".

IIMs will declare the cut-off marks soon. Moreover, after downloading Score Cards, only eligible candidates will be asked for Interview, GD, Written Test etc.
