before starting prep for cat 2007 just have a look at this..
this will help u to get an idea about where to reach and what to do in order to get into one of the top most b school of India....
first of all is about clearing the cutoff.....this year to get into the iims u have to get at least 95.33 percentile in each section and overall about 98.3 percentile if u are a fresher ....if u have work exp then it depends on the yrs and the kind of work exp u have......but numerically speaking it would be something like this-----
In verbal the cut off would be 27%(20.25 in score)
In QA the cutoff would be something around 54.35%(48 in score)
In LI/DR the cutoff would around 47%(35.25 in score)
if u don't clear the cut off u will not get a call no matter what ever be ur total score is.....
but yaarr who thinks about the cut off .....think big and that should be -----
In verbal a score of 36.5%+(23.5 in score) will fetch u 99percentile+ .....but again verbal was tough this
year so be safe and get a few more marks there
In DI/LR a score of 55%+(41.25 in score) will fetch u 99percentile+
In QA a score of 66.6%(50 in score) will fetch u above 99percentile
over all 47.38%(107 in score) will fetch u a 99.5 percentile ....57.3%(129 in score) will fetch u 99.84percentile
but again there is something called "luck" if u miss out iims no worries ...there are the other big guns waiting for u ---
Apart from the iims the other big guns are-
SPJAIN - anything in between 96-97percentile(95-97in score) in total
MDI - anything above 97.5percentile
NITIE - anything above 96percentile
IMT(gaz) MICA - anything above 95percentile
the above institute have the sectional cutoffs which will be something around 85-90 percentile
in each section ....SPJAIN gives out calls on the basis of ur profile.
TAPMI MDI(HR) -anything above 92percentile
so that is what u should aim for ...this was based on this year question paper ....if the pattern changes again then it will change ...but i gave u the percentage which i think will not change
another thing here is the students profile of iim a.....and will most probably for other iim also (u can get it at iim a website)
so if u come from any other background other than engnrn then u would face fierce competition
anyway hope this would help u a lot ..
best of luck for cat 2007
