no chance if you are from general category.. and you might get a call from new iims but it will be next to impossible to convert.. and if you are an engineer and a male.. just drop the idea of iims.. target nitie or iits or FMS

@Hhhhhhhhttttt Well the thing is every IIM has their own shortlisting criteria and you cannot say for sure what would be the one which would earn you full grades. Currently, all i can say is you have very good chances of going into ABC being a non-engineer so focus on getting as high scores as possible in cat.

 ALL THE VERY BEST !!!

IIMA would have a document on their website giving the data from.last year. From that you can figure out for your AC and application rating what score.was.needed last time

@sachin._.agrawal Brother if you are not getting scores in mocks then the main reason is you are currently not well prepared to give mocks. I would suggest you stop taking mocks currently and just focus on your preparation for now. Cover all your basic concepts from all the three sections and focus more on practicing. For mocks start from the second week of september. When you would be more thorough with your preparation and see how wonderful would be the results. All the Best !!!

I'm a second year student and will give CAT in 2020 . 

Profile: 


General, Male, BBA. 


10th: 10 CGPA 

12th: 75%


FY: CGPA expected around 7-8. 


How should I plan ahead? I know IIM A,B,C,L,K,I maybe out of league already. 


What should be my target percentile and CGPA for the next 2 years of BBA, sufficient for other prestigious colleges(Newer IIMs, MDI, and etc)

@coconutsonapizzaDo one thing first download some resources from online, get them printed and revise them daily. These should be all your squares and square roots, cubes and cube roots, tables from 1 to 30, fractions and ratios. You will find the pdf of all of these online. And start reading them once daily will help you a lot to reduce calculation time. Net spend a day or two learning some vedic maths tricks. Plenty of videos on youtube. And then take the Arun Sharma Book and start with basics. It is really a good one covering all the basic concepts with lots of solved and exercise examples.

@sahil123_sharma Would be needing a score in excess of 99 percentile for the new IIM's and atleast a score of 99.6+for the older ones and even higher for getting call from the Trinity of ABC.

Keep your targets high, above post pretty much nails most of it. You have a better shot at K and L rather new IIMs actually if you score above 99.5 with higher VARC.

@sachin._.agrawal Your acads are your biggest asset which is surely going to give you huge benefit over others. Upon that you are a non-engineer and IIM's love non-engineers and have a slight preference for the same since they want to increase the academic diversity.

Coming to your percentile it is utmost important to understand that the higher the percentile the better re your chances for conversion in the IVY leagues and A+ grade institutes. So don't set youself a particular target and try goign as high as you can. But since you have asked for percentile, somewhere around 97 and above will easily get you calls from most of the IIM's including the old ones. If luck favours you get calls from as low as 95 as well since you are a non-engineer. But again I will say aim for going as high as you can.

All the best !!!
