    For getting a call from IIMs & IITs you would be required to have your CAT score above 95 percentile. The best IIMs, call students when they have their percentile above 90% or 95%. You have a good academic background so you just need to score your best in CAT rest there is a fair chance that you will get in.

    You will need at least 90+ percentile to be called for interview due to reservation. However, the chances of conversion are less as aggregate scores of 10th and 12th are taken along with CAT scores. To ensure admission please try for 97+ CAT percentile. You may also study trends of previous years with regard to percentile obtained.

    To get admitted into any IIMss or any Top MBA colleges in India, the minimum CAT 2022 cutoff is expected to be 90 percentile. Those who secured the 99+ percentile can apply to top Iims like IIM Bangalore, IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Lucknow, IIM Calcutta, and IIM Kozhikode. Hope it helps.

    You need to aim at least 90 percentile with a minimum sectional cut-off of 80 percentile.

    Try to aim for 97+ for new IIMs and IITs. If you aim for old IIMs don't think of anything less than 99. Again after scoring this much you have go through a tough competition in interviews as well. So be well versed with the current happenings. Start reading about case studies. If you are fresher be well prepared for at least 2 subjects of graduation.
