The cut-off of CAT 2017 refers to the minimum
marks or percentile a test taker must obtain in order to qualify for the next round of
selection process. CAT 2017 cut-off has been announced by few
IIM’s including IIM Ahmedabad, Bangalore, IIM Calcutta and Kozhikode among others. The other top B-schools will also release
their CAT 2017 cut-off after the results are declared. While CAT is scheduled to be conducted by
IIM Lucknow on November 26, 2017, the result is awaited in the second week of January 2018. You must clear the sectional as well as overall
CAT cut-off percentile in order to get shortlisted for next round of selection process – WAT-GD/PI
rounds. CAT 2017 cut-off will depend on a few factors
such as Difficulty level of exam
• Number of test takers • Number of candidates qualifying in the
exam • Number of seats
• Institute repute or ranking As per trends, if the difficulty level of
CAT 2017 is high, the CAT cut-off will be low and vice versa. Generally the old IIMs and top B-schools such
as FMS, University of Delhi, MDI Gurgaon etc. have CAT cut-off over 99 percentile. New IIMs and other top B-schools have cut-off
ranging from 90 percentile or above. On the other hand, B-schools belonging to
