If you didn’t get this CAT cut off percentile, you don’t stand chance for admission. While ‘Average Batch CAT Percentile’ is actual CAT off percentile for Admission 2019 which is calculated based on CAT scores of all the candidates who were admitted to respective MBA colleges on the basis of CAT cut off.

However, most of the other candidates admitted in IIMs will be close to the ‘Average Batch CAT Percentile’cut off. Latest Application status for Top B-schools is also given below.
