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.

Rohan Rawat 18th Nov, 2019

Hi there,

As per my knowledge the MICAT-I application form is out and the last date for filling the form is 25th November 2019.


For filling the academic details the aspirant should have atleast 50% in his undergrads and around 65% and above in his class XII and class 10.

* Marks should be in percentage

The Aggregate of marks is considered and not something like Best of 4 or 5 subjects.

I hope this will help you!!
