CAT 2022 Final Cut off & Qualifying Cut off

IIM aspiring students must understand the difference between two types of CAT cut offs, which are critical in the admissions process. There are two types of cut offs. These are Qualifying CAT cut offs and final CAT cut offs.

Qualifying CAT cut offs

  • Each IIM campus announces the Qualifying CAT cut off percentile when the admission requirements and selection method for the following academic year are declared.
  • The qualifying cut off includes the CAT 2022 sectional cut off as well as the overall cut off.
  • These are the minimum scores a student must achieve in order to be eligible for an WAT/GD/ interview selection process at IIMs. They are also famed as the IIM eligibility cut off or IIM shortlist cut off or IIM qualifying cut off.
  • For all the Top IIMs, the qualifying CAT cut off is above the 90th percentile.
  • The qualifying CAT cutoff is set prior to the announcement of the CAT results.

Final CAT cut offs

  • This is the minimum percentage score required by IIMs to screen applicants for the WAT or GD-PI round. It is also known as the IIM call cut off.
  • After the CAT 2022 results are released, the CAT final cut off will be determined.
  • Any IIM or even other top MBA institute has yet to make an official announcement of the final CAT cut off for 2022.
  • The final CAT 2022 cut off includes the sectional cut off as well as the CAT overall percentile.
