Hello guys

I have to apply for MICA. My CAT score is 88.25. Expecting somewhat better score in XAT (based on marks). Should i apply through XAT or CAT or both while filling the application form.

Hi,

My name is Abhishek currently a graduate in B.Com (Hons) from Delhi University. I'm particularly interested in Advertising and Public Relations. I'm planning to work in a advertising firm so as to gain some work ex in the field and then later pursue post graduation in Advertising and Marketing Communications. Please guide me through the MICA admission process. I'm have certain queries listed below:

1) I have heard that MICA does not take into consideration CAT scores since recently, Instead they conduct a test known as MICAT. Is this true? Do we still have to appear for CAT or just the MICAT?

2) What are the other colleges providing post graduate degrees in this particular field in India?

Thanks in Advance.


Hi Abishek,

MICA does not accept CAT anymore. SIMC offers a similar degree.

Guys this information is WRONG . One of my friends had 85.44 percentile last year with 98.71 percentile in Verbal. He did NOT get a call.



This statement seems to be tailor made towards attracting more applications this year. The important things to be kept in mind are :

(A)If there are 120 seats this year , cut offs do not automatically go down !

The number of applicants is increasing every year.

Cut-offs of other institutes are going up . While that does not automatically mean the MICA cut-off is going to shoot up, it shows us that greater number of seats is not necessarily indicative of lower cut-offs .

This time we have XAT,CAT & GMAT routes available.Even if the number of seats goes upto 120.The cut-off seems unlikely to fall or even remain at last years' levels.


(B)How many candidates are they actually going to shortlist ?
The website says 2000 based on CAT,XAT and GMAT.

Fine,but it also says that candidates in the top 10 percentile (XAT & CAT) and ANYONE with 600+ in GMAT can expect a call.

GMAT isnt as tough as CAT/XAT.

What is the Equivalence formula ie , 'X' GMAT score='Y' CAT percentile='Y' XAT percentile.?

What is the proportion of seats to be apportioned between candidates applying through GMAT and candidates applying through CAT/XAT ?





These are the questions which need answers.

are u talking abt me?thts my case too...85,44 overall and 98.7 in va bt no call last year.....

by gauri....
also mica's registrar kgk pillai in a VSAT session at CL told the candidates that last year's cut off was 85 overall.


well this is either false marketing gimmick my mica or i think thy overlooked my application last year in which case thy have played with my career....
how come the registrar make such a comment.n if true how come i didnt get a call.

ur logic is right----cutoffs will still go up as increase in seat nullified by increase application and pple applying with multiple scores of multiple years.....my guess anythng above 90%ile.

and dotn bank upon the wensite saying no sectional cutoffs-IMI WEBSITE SAID THE SAME-BT SEE THY HAVE SECTIONALS OF 50%ILE this year.....so these people are so complacent and non transparent tht u never know-their words have no weightage.

hi guys!

i'm in a bit of a worry abt a call frm mica .. can anyone help me? my percentile scores for 2005 CAT are:

Verbal: 95
DI: 93
Quant: 68
Overall Percentile: 94.10

fresher with no work ex.. super extra currics. decent acads.


Hey! I think with that score u should get a call. Bcoz i had the same score last year
Verbal :94, overall:95.5..No work ex & i had a call from mica.

So do apply & start preparing seriously bcoz they call too many ppl for GD/PI & that is a tougher fight than the written test(that's where i lost)...ATB..even i am planning to reapply this year.
