Hello ,

As your query is that you wanted to apply for IIMC entrance exam but somehow you didn't appeared for the exam and you are confused with what next. I would like to tell you that that there is no other possible way or any other alternative. If you want to pursue your Mass and Communication studies at an higher level you have to appear for the exam. So in my opinion it will be better to prepare for this one whole year and apply next year for the same. 

Further, if any detail that you need or think we can help you with that you can let me know in the comment section below. 

I hope your query is solved.

Thank you.

Hello. For IIM Calcutta, in order to secure a seat for pgp program/mba, you should clear cat examination. The cat is an online test in which the level of difficulty varies every year. None of questions or question patterns are repeated.

I would suggest you to go through the basics and join a test series for preparation.

Hope this helps

All the best.

Tarun Saraf 18th May, 2019

Thank you.


I achieved a 92% in 10th, 79% in 12th, and 82% in graduation. How much do I need to score in CAT to get into the top MBA colleges?

Jesin J 7th May, 2019
Hello Karam. Congratulations on decent academic scores. Now, the admission in IIMs and other top b-schools accounts to different factors. These factors include, class 10 marks,  class 12 marks, graduation marks, gender diversity, academic diversity, work experience and cat score.
So if you are a fresher and belong to general category, then you should try and get 99+ percentile in CAT. The reason being, a lot of candidates have very high academic scores, and other factors also play a spoil sport.

So,  work hard and ace the Cat.

All the best.
