Though the MICA has not released the cut-off for MICAT 2019 yet, the sectional cut-off for MICAT past year is mentioned in the below table: –

S. No Sections No. of questions No. of questions to attempt

5 Divergent – Convergent Reasoning 30 19-20
6. Descriptive Test 4 6
Total 145 45-47 (Expected overall cut off)

If the candidate scores above 50 then they will not be rejected because of the raw score of the test. However, the candidates will get a call only with a decent story and psychometric clearance. It is highly recommended that the candidate keeps checking the official website of MICA as there have been many changes in the past few years.

The weightage assigned to each round is as follows: –

Parameters Weightages Assigned
MICAT 2017 50 per cent
Group Exercise 18 per cent
Personal Interview 30 per cent
CAT/MAT/GMAT scaled scores 2 per cent

The score of the candidates is calculated to the normalized scores. The score will be converted into a standardized score which is obtained by the candidate in a sub-section of MICAT. The normalization of the scores will be completed using the appropriate statistical methods by considering scores of all qualifying candidates up to the stage applicable to the candidate. And this will be done for each sub-section separately. The normalization of the score will also be done for the total MICAT I and MICAT II score by using the appropriate statistical methods.
