How is CAT Qualifying Cutoff Different from CAT Final Cutoff?

“How is CAT qualifying cutoff different from CAT final cutoff” is a question which has confused a lot many candidates over the years. To make sure that the CAT aspirants this year do not face the same problem, we have decided to discuss the difference between CAT qualifying cutoff and CAT final cutoff but first let us understand what do these terms mean.

CAT Qualifying Cutoff – Also known as IIM Eligibility Cut off, CAT qualifying cutoff marks is the minimum mark that must be scored by a candidate in order to be eligible for the Interview round of IIMs. If a candidate successfully secures the CAT qualifying marks, then he/she will be eligible to be called up for the GD-PI/WAT rounds conducted by different IIMs.

CAT Final Cutoff – Also goes by the name IIM Call Cut off, CAT final cutoff marks is the minimum percentile score defined by the IIMs for candidates’ selection for GD-PI/WAT rounds. The table provided below will list out the difference between CAT qualifying cutoff and CAT final cutoff:

CAT Qualifying Cutoff

CAT Final Cutoff

Meeting this cutoff criterion will not assure the selection of the candidates for the GD-PI/WAT round

Meeting this cutoff criterion will not assure the admission of the candidates in IIMs

This cutoff is fixed before the CAT result is announced

This cutoff is fixed after the CAT result is declared

Each campus announce this cutoff in their admission criteria and shortlist notification

The Institutes do not announce this cutoff publicly

This cutoff for all IIMs remains above 90 percentile except for IIM Ahmedabad where CAT qualifying cutoff has hovered around 80 percentile from 2016 onwards

The final CAT cutoff of top IIMs remains 99 percentile and above and the same for the new IIMs remain 95 percentile and above
