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?
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??
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?
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?
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.
