CAT Eligibility
The candidate must hold a Bachelor’s Degree, with at least 50% marks or equivalent CGPa [45% in case of the candidates belonging to Scheduled Caste (SC)/ Scheduled tribe (St) or Persons with Disability (PWD) category], of any of the Universities incorporated by an act of the central or state legislature in India or other educational institutions established by an act of Parliament or declared to be deemed as a University under section 3 of UGC act, 1956, or possess an equivalent qualification recognized by the Ministry of HRD, Government of India. The Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent qualification obtained by the candidate must entail a minimum of three years of education after completing higher secondary schooling (10+2) or equivalent. The percentage obtained by the candidate in the bachelor’s degree would be based on the practice followed by the university/institution from where the candidate has obtained the degree. In case of the candidates being awarded grades/CGPa instead of marks, the equivalence would be based on the equivalence certified by the university/institution from where they have obtained bachelor’s degree. In case the university/ institution does not have any scheme for converting CGPa into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by the IIMs by dividing obtained CGPa with the maximum possible CGPa and multiplying the resultant with 100.
Candidates appearing for the final year bachelor’s degree / equivalent qualification examination and those who have completed degree requirement and are awaiting results can also apply. Such candidates must produce a certificate from the Principal/Head of the Department/Registrar/ Director of the university/ institution certifying that the candidate is currently in the final year / is awaiting final results and has obtained at least 50% marks or equivalent (45% in case of candidates belonging to SC/St/PWD category) based on latest available grades/marks.

ADMISSION POLICY OF IIMs: Each IIM admits students independently. the Common admission test (Cat) is conducted jointly by IIMs. However, each IIM follows its own admission process, independent of the other IIMs. It should be noted that performance in Cat is one of several inputs used by IIMs to judge the suitability of a candidate, first for group discussion and/or interview and then for final selection. the IIM to which the candidate has applied, evaluates the candidate in each of a set of different areas of achievement, including Cat performance. Each IIM independently decides what weightages should be given to the various areas. Admission process followed by each IIM is given in the respective institutional profile.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENT: If an applicant is inadvertently allowed to take the Cat in violation of the admission requirements (eligibility criteria) of the IIMs, he/she cannot, at a later date, use that as a right to claim that he/she meets the eligibility requirements of the IIMs.
SCHOLARSHIPS/FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: It is the endeavour of all IIMs that no student be denied opportunity to pursue the Post-Graduate Programme in Management for want of adequate financial resources. Substantial need-based scholarships are available for students belonging to economically disadvantaged families. (Please see the Brief Institutional Profiles in the Bulletin for details.)
CAT SCORECARD: All the eligible candidates who take Cat 2008 will receive Cat scorecards by mid-January 2009, by mail, from the IIM to which they had sent their Cat application Forms. The scorecard will be valid only for one year. a candidate who loses his/her scorecard during the year may obtain a duplicate card on payment of Rs. 250/- by Demand Draft, from the IIM that had mailed the original scorecard.
NON-IIM INSTITUTIONS: Institutions, other than the IIMs, which also use Cat scores for their admission process, will be provided Cat scores of the candidates who have applied to them, along with suggested guidelines on how to use the scores. IIMs do not have any role, other than providing Cat scores, in the admission processes of these institutions. IIMs do not ascertain the quality of programme/degree offered by these institutions before agreeing to provide Cat scores.
NON-REFUND OF CAT APPLICATION FEE: Please note that claims for refund of the CAT application Fee will NOT be entertained.
