@kaaliya -- ohk bro...and i will surely keep a few backup options available with me. and i just found a link for the IIMC selection criteria just now ... cutoffs 99.55% this year and my 10th and 12th grade scores wont be a problem there by the weightage alloted by them and the points scale...so all is not lost i guess :)


Yup!!! thats y i said score above 99.7....99.7 because cut off was 99.55 for those who scored 80+ in 10th,12th ..since u have 78 in 12th u have to compensate that with even higher score.....so,for u the cut off will be in the 99.7 range...hope u get my point....and yes,all is not lost,atleast not for u...

all the best..!!:cheers:

@kaaliya --- ok...so m going to score big...thats it...the end of discussion ;)


Ya,Gud luck with that....Just for a back-up...do fill other colleges like XLRI,MDI,JB,NEW IIM'S,NM....

Dont repeat the mistake that i did this yr.Its always good to have a back up option with u in case things dont go the way u wanted them to be....these are also gud colleges and not much difference in placements unless u are hell bent on getting into front office I-bank role...which u can only get in A/B/C (that too very few in no.)..otherwise not much of a difference....!!!

All the best dude !!!

@Kaliya.
If u dnt mind, cn u share ur 10 and 12th marks.

@chandan -- no bro...it wont affect at all as many students do that. you can justify it by saying that the one year break was well worth it as you had managed to secure admission in NIT which is one of the top engineering colleges in the country. but in general they don't even bother. might just pull your leg (i have heard of panelist just toying with the candidates during the interview) to see how you react. but it wont be a deciding factor at all




Thanks a lot buddy. cheers.

Hey pg's!!!,

Could anyone please let me know if i stand a chance of getting into any one of the older IIM's with the following academic profile now that quite a few of them have revamped their selection procedure
10th -- 87.6% (CBSE)
12th--78% (CBSE)
graduation -- 65% Electrical Engineering (3rd year) (Pune University)

I plan to appear for CAT this year (2012)

Thodi madat kar do yaaron


To be honest..No chance of getting a call from B,K,I,A,S & a bleak chance of making it to C,L if u score above 99.7...I said bleak coz IIM-L has a diversity centric Adm. criteria and IIM-C gives 10% weightage to 10,12th respectively.

So,if u want to enter L,C score huge ...i mean really huge buddy...Be on the safe side..score a 100 !!!

P.S i scored 99.61 and no calls from any of the old IIM's this yr..!!!!

Here goes my acads

X th - 90.8%

XII th - 81.4%

Btech - 67% :banghead: (upto 5th sem - got one more sem before CAT 12)

extra curricular - decent involvement in various college events
- a core team member of an NGO

MY QUESTION -

1) Do I stand any chance of making it to the top notch IIM's ...
If yes, then at what percentile.

I have started my prep for CAT 12 with the determination of making it to IIM A/B/C.

thanx a lot!


Every year the criteria for IIMs change. But according to last year's criteria, you stand a good chance in IIM-C if you score above 99.6%ile. For IIM-A you need to score 21 out of 35 point scale to get calls for GD/PI, which you can check on IIM-A website. IIM-B gives serious profile based calls with workex so I cant tell you much about it.

hii puys...
I am still in 3rd year and thinking to take CAT after 2 yrs of job ex. Although, i study in mechanical engg branch but given teh growth rate, locations and better prospects in switching the companies i am looking forward to joining an IT cos viz TCS, INFY,IBM,WIPRO. Will that create any sort of problem since i dont belong to IT branch as far as admission to MBA colleges are concerned and wich one among the 4 listed IT giants u think is better???
plzzzz reply.


Being from mechanical, It would be better for you if you go for companies related to your domain. Why I say this because it will help you in 1. justifying yourself in interviews 2. There are plenty of IT engineers already and colleges(and companies which come for placements) look for people from varying fields. Also some companies specifically look for people of your background and experience(rather than IT people) and would recruit you and pay you more than what they pay to others. This helps raise your employability in the eyes of college interviewers and they would select you.
Answering your second question, it actually doesnt really matter which IT company you have worked for as long as it is IT.

P.S. - I am an IT engineer, worked for Infy for 2 years.
