Hello Friends,

I need some clarification regarding the weight-age given to CAT scores and other 10/12/grad scores in shortlisting and final selection.

IIM-L says it will give 37.5 percent weightage to CAT scores. Now how is this 37.5 calculated?

Is it by making the absolute score of the 100 percentiler = 37.5 and accordingly marking the rest proportionally. or is it just by dividing your absolute score by 450 and converting it for 37.5.

Same for 10th and 12th scores.

Please enlighten.


Well it is the absolute score(out of 450) and not the percentiles. Shouldn't make much of a difference anyway.

IIMB 2011-13 

@CATghanti.. GD topic is generally NOT from the news headlines of the current day..
GD topic can be any abstract/specific topic.. which may or may not make the headlines on that particular day..

however one need's to know the current issues , both politically n social ones, so that we can make good references in the GD..

Please Bear with me as I am habituated to writing longish experience hopefully will help a few having interview at Kolkata
Date: 24-03-11
Venue: Indismart Hotel, Salt Lake, Kolkata
................................
................................
Learnings: Make a point to brush through the newspaper the GD topic is generally from the news which make headlines on that day. And as per me form an opinion on everything. I guess Himanshu Rai has made it a point that ethics is in the interview as he had declared after the CAT results fiasco
VERDICT: God Knows L

Plzz give feedback..I think the thread has been dead as far as writing experience is concerned lekin feedback to de hi sakte ho yaar :)
