They say, “The more a person knows, the better armed he is.” This axiom resonates aptly even with an exam like situation wherein a better knowledge will always help the candidates ace than the others. Not only about the syllabus of the paper, but factors which directly or indirectly influence the exam result. Let’s pick up MICAT for instance. As MICAT 2020 (January session) is round the corner, registered candidates must be burning the midnight’s oil to give their best shot in the examination. However, as the test is nearing, candidates should be aware about the dos and don’ts of MICAT II 2020. Thus, to help the student community Careers360 has come up with some essential tips which should be taken care of in the exam and before you are gearing up for taking MICAT 2020, so that you can focus only on attempting the examination without any last minute hassle. Read MICAT exam day guidelines 2020 below.

Before moving on to know the exam day instructions if MICAT II 2020, let’s have a look at the schedule, time and other important details of the examination.

Candidates must carry their MICAT 2020 admit card with them on the day of the exam. In case admit card is not received by post, you can download the hall ticket from the MICA website (mica.ac.in) and print it on a white A4 size sheet.
Candidates will have to carry the printout of MICAT admit card along with any of the following valid identity proofs:
Aadhaar Card (UID)

Candidates should also bring a ball point pen to the exam centre.
Candidates are not allowed to carry with them any of the following electronic devices to the exam centre:

Candidates will have to sign the attendance sheet and admit card in the presence of the invigilator.Time yourself when you write, since there is sectional cutoff and you must attempt all sections in order to qualify.
VARC, QA, LR and Psychometric Tests are the most important sections and carry the highest mark.
Start with the sections you are confident about.
Be careful when you mark answers in the answer sheet. Best is to solve a section and tick all the correct answers in order to avoid any confusion.
Note: Carrying any one of the above-mentioned photo identity proofs is mandatory for candidates. Those who will not carry the admit card along with the identity proof, they will not be permitted to appear in the exam.
Do your reading practice on the computer. Reading newspapers and business articles are not enough. You need to develop a habit of reading on screen. This will be beneficial in the reading comprehension (RC) section, as you will be able to save considerable time.
Practice sample questions online to analyse time spent on each question and strategize much time you will be spending on a particular section.
Ahead of the exam, do not study anything new
Focus more on revision of whatever you have studied
Keep your mind relaxed as panicking now will not be beneficial
Practice solving the online mock test. The more you get used to working on a computer screen, the better it is.

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.
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.
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.
