PUYS, Now that we are done with the CMAT exam(AFAIK third CMAT is going to be for specific states only & I'm not in one of those states), let's start speculating cut-offs.
One thing I would like to mention is that the admissions in Maharashtra state(because that's where the top colleges under CMAT are) are going to be based on a composite score i.e. [CMAT score+GDPI score] as GDPI is a mandatory common pool stage.
So, while predicting please predict for a composite score.
There is still one confusion that the GDPI is going to be of 40 marks or 80 marks. If you have any idea regarding what it's gonna be, please share. Otherwise take your pick between 40 and 80 as it will be just a scaling thing.
Last year MH-CET was of 200 marks and GDPI of 40 marks. So a composite score out of 240 was considered for final admissions. I don't have much idea about cut-offs for aspirants applying through CAT.

A manager will have to make predictions based on market survey and various other factors(which we will get to know once we enter one of these institutes. until then it's 'various other factors'). So, start predicting..
P.S. - Please mention the category of your prediction i.e. for HU, OHU, All india or even reserved category.
