Expected Good Percentile in CAT 2023: For admissions to top IIMs in the country, a score range of 98+ percentile is considered good. For other lower-ranked IIMs, a score of 95+ percentile can also be considered as a good percentile. Aside from this, the 90 to 95 percentile range is also considered a good score for leading non-IIM B-Schools accepting CAT scores. 

As the number of seats available at IIMs is only 5,500+ and the number of CAT registrations is over 3.3 lakhs, the competition is very tough. Furthermore, the number of open seats is also reduced due to the seat reservation policy. Hence, the cutoffs are very high for IIMs. Comparatively, there are a higher number of seats in non-IIM member institutions, thus lowering their cutoff requirements.
