All the aspirants appearing for CAT 2020 can check the sectional as well as category wise cutoff for all the IIMs provided here. They can also check the factors responsible for determining the CAT 2020 Cutoff. 

IIM Cutoff

The journey of getting admission to one of the top B-Schools in India does not end just after performing well in the CAT exam. You will have to meet the minimum cutoff decided by the IIMs and all other B-Schools of India in order to get admission. All the IIMs release their cutoff after the release of CAT results and the management aspirants will have to satisfy the cutoff decided for the first round of the selection process to get a call from any IIM

Since CAT 2020 is scheduled to be conducted on 29th November 2020, you can expect the cutoff list in the first week of January 2021. You can visit the official website of CAT to know the cutoff of each IIM. This article will provide you with the IIM Cut Off 2020 along with the previous years’ cutoff of all IIMs. 

What is IIM Cut Off?

IIM Cutoff is the minimum percentile that the candidate must have scored in the CAT exam in order to qualify for the WAT-PI rounds of IIMs. The IIM cutoff varies for all categories. The cutoff for the SC/ ST and other reserved categories is considerably lower than that for the general category candidates. The overall cutoff of all the IIMs varies every year depending on the number of registrations, the number of seats, previous years cut off and many other factors. Candidates can check the cutoff of IIMs either from the official website of CAT or from the official website of the selected IIM. 

Factors Determing IIM CAT Cutoff

Difference between IIM Call Cut Off vs IIM Shortlist Cut Off 

MBA aspirants must note that there is a difference between the IIM Call Cutoff and the IIM Shortlisting Cut Off. The IIM Shortlist Cutoff is the minimum cutoff considered for shortlisting candidates. While on the other hand, IIM Call Cutoff calculates the chances of getting selected for WAT/ PI round. You should remember that satisfying the Shortlist Cut Off does not mean that you will be selected for further selection rounds. You will have to meet the Call Off in order to get a call from IIM. The Call Cutoff is always higher than the Shortlist Cut off.
