MICAT 2 raw score 45.5, scaled 56.5 CAT PERCENTILE - 85.14 Based on ghis what are the chances gor getting shortlisted?

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 20th Mar, 2020


Score is moderate which will make difficult to get an admission. Moderate because your rank is close to cutoff value. as college cutoff list is not available it is difficult to say in which you can apply. Cutoff list will be released prior to counselling so keep an eye on it. Be attentive and keep taking updates so that you don't miss any information.

I got 89%ile in XAT but only 83%ile in CAT. Will they consider my XAT score instead of CAT? And how much will I have to score in MICAT 2, say with a decent attempt of the descriptive section?

Sampriti Student Expert 4th Feb, 2020
Your XAT scores would be considered during the final selection if you've applied through both CAT and XAT. Meanwhile if you manage to score above 50 in MICAT then considering your XAT percentile, which is very good, you can easily get through if you perform well in the subsequent selection rounds. For the descriptive test the best attempt was to answer all the 4 questions. The first 2 being of 10 Mark's each and the 3rd and the 4th questions being of 20 and 30 respectively. So if you managed to do atleast the first 3 questions then that would be even better and can assure you a higher chance of final selection. The final selection is based on the following criteria

CAT/XAT percentile = weightage is 20%

MICAT = 30%

Group Discussions/Group Exercise = 20%

PI = 30%

i have score of 95 in cat and i was thinking how much should i score in micat to assure a call??

Pranav Mishra 26th Jan, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

Your percentile in CAT is great congratulations for it, Now the marks you should need to score for getting a call will be 50+ to make yourself in a good position for getting admission, Although there are students who got less than 50 marks in MICAT and get a call but it is not a safe score for MICAT, So I would suggest you to score above 50 in MICAT exam for making yourself in a safe side for admission.

I hope the above information is beneficial for you.

All the best.


my cat percentile is below 70, is there any chance that i will be further considered if i score well in micat?

Pranav Mishra 17th Jan, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

As far as last year cutoff is concerned which is 78 percentile in CAT you have no chance. Getting good score in MICAT can get you a call till 75 percentile at some conditions but getting less than 70, In my opinion there is no chance, However MICA also accept XAT score so, if you have good percentile like 75-80 in it than you have a chance to convert it.

I hope the above information is beneficial for you.

All the best.


My CAT percentile is 79. Ill be taking micat 2. Will I have any chance to compete after good micat scores despite my low cat percentile?

Harshita Gupta 16th Jan, 2020


During the selection process, CAT will have 20% weightage and MICAT will have 30% weightage. So, if you score well, your chances may increase. Your academic scores and your performance in GD and PI also matter when it comes to admission.
