CAT Cut offs: Difference in Admission Policy and Actual Application
CAT Cut off 2023 for admission in IIMs and other top MBA Colleges carry two different aspects in their admission policy. For example, top IIMs announce their admission policy with low CAT score cut off percentile requirement but the actual CAT score cut off percentile is much higher at the time of shortlisting. Therefore there is a difference in MBA Colleges Cut Off 2023 as announced in their admission policy and CAT 2022 exam Cut Off Marks as actually applied by these B-schools at the time of shortlisting for final admission round.

 

CAT 2022 score cut offs in IIMs and other prominent MBA Colleges are announced by each of them for MBA admission 2023. Although, IIM Cut off 2022 for CAT percentile score as announced by the 20 IIMs including IIM Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta among others, reflect the minimum CAT 2022 cut offs required category wise and to be considered for shortlisting, the actual CAT score cut off in all the IIMs may go much higher. . 

MBA Entrance Exam & MBA/PGDM Admissions | Registrations Open
NMAT 2022 Registration Open IBSAT 2022 Registration Open
XAT 2023 Registration Open Great Lakes PGPM & PGDM Admission 2023
IMT Ghaziabad PGDM Admissions 2023 IMI New Delhi PGDM Admission 2023
NMIMS Mumbai MBA Admission 2023 SDA Bocconi Asia Center IMB Admission 2023
SOIL Gurgaon PGPM & PGDM Admission 2023 XIM University MBA Admission 2023

Similar is the case at FMS Delhi, MDI Gurgaon, SPJIMR Mumbai, IMI New Delhi, IMT Ghaziabad, MICA Ahmedabad, XIM Bhubaneswar among other MBA colleges accepting CAT Score with cut off percentiles. The actual CAT Cut Off for top MBA Colleges for MBA admission 2023 may go higher than their threshold CAT cut off requirement.

 

Admission to the flagship MBA/PGDM 2023-25 programmes in number of top MBA colleges is based on CAT 2022 score cut offs.  CAT 2022 test takers searching for MBA admission while looking for the suitable MBA colleges where they can apply, should refer the above relevant information on how good the B-school is, alongwith the idea of CAT score requirement for shortlisting.
