Your 100 percentile in CAT does not make sure that you will get admission in IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore or IIM Calcutta. This is exactly what has happened in the admission results declared by IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Calcutta. However, the CAT 2016 topper with 100 percentile has been able to convert IIM Bangalore.

All the 3 top IIMs-A, B, C have declared their final admission result for PGP 2017-19 batch and have sent admission offers to the selected candidates on their registered e-mails.

In fact the 1st stage shortlisting raises hope to get admission in top IIMs namely IIM Ahmedabad, Bangalore or Calcutta. During the WAT & PI round, different admission parameters with different weightage areas offer admission to the candidates with CAT percentile as low as 98 or 89 while the CAT toppers with 100 percentile are not even placed in waitlist.

CAT topper also scored 770 in GMAT
Avidipto Chakraborty, apart from scoring 100 percentile in CAT 2016 has also scored 770 in GMAT and proposes to explore other opportunities also.

Plans to go for deferred admission
Avidipto plans to opt for deferred admission as he has been offered lucrative job from McKinsey & Company and is looking to take the opportunity. Accordingly, despite being offered admission by IIM Bangalore he may not join the flagship PGP programme.

Since he has got job offer from his dream company McKinsey & Company, he may opt for deferred admission policy and will take the admission later as he doesn't want to leave this job opportunity.

IIM Ahmedabad: Dream campus
Avidipto preferred IIM Ahmedabad to pursue his PGP but there also he wanted to opt for deferred admission. It has not been confirmed whether he would join IIM Bangalore or will go after his new role at McKinsey & Company.

IIMs have shown the admission status details only for those candidates who are offered admission, or, are Waitlisted.
