Celebrating CAT Success: A Guide for 90 Percentile Achievers by Endeavor

Heartiest congratulations on achieving a significant milestone in your CAT journey! With your impressive scores in the 90-95 percentile bracket, the path to your dream college is clearer than ever. At Endeavor, we’re excited to infuse our strategic magic into guiding you through the next crucial steps – focusing on targeted college applications and kick-starting your GDPI preparations. You’re not just prepared; you’re Endeavor-prepared, ready to take on the challenges ahead with confidence and precision.

For those in the 97-99 percentile range, your prospects at old and new IIMs, as well as baby IIMs, are promising, especially if you have a strong overall academic profile and notable past achievements. Don’t forget to apply to FMS, Delhi – the “little red building of dreams,” where opportunities abound even at a 97 percentile for GEM profiles.

MDI Gurgaon, IIFT Delhi, and SPJIMR in Mumbai are top choices for high-scoring MBA aspirants, with cut-offs typically above 95 percentile. IISc Bangalore is ideal for those interested in Business Analytics and Technology Management, typically requiring upwards of 97 percentile due to limited seats. For a range of opportunities, the IITs – Bombay, Delhi, Kharagpur, Madras, Kanpur, Roorkee, Dhanbad, and Jodhpur – offer MBA degrees with high RoI and are open to both engineers and non-engineers.

Endeavor suggests that students in the early 90 percentile range also consider options like IMT Ghaziabad, GIM Goa, Great Lakes Chennai, TAPMI Manipal, and the Delhi School of Economics MBA program as safety nets. This approach, woven with Endeavor’s magical and insightful guidance, ensures a comprehensive array of choices while maintaining focus on top-tier B-schools.

It’s important to remember that CAT 2023 cut-offs for IIM admissions differ across categories. For example, IIM Bangalore requires an 85 percentile for General but 75 for OBC and slightly lower for SC/ST candidates. This variance is seen across all IIMs, and aspirants belonging to categories like OBC, SC, ST should review these specific cut-offs. Understanding these variations is vital for effective planning and application strategy, ensuring you target the right institutes as per your category-specific cut-offs. In CAT 2023, to reach the 95th percentile, aspirants achieved scores of 28-32 in VARC, 18-22 in DILR, and 18-24 in QA. For the elite 99th percentile, the scores were 37-43 in VARC, 25-30 in DILR, and 26-28 in QA. At Endeavor, we use these insights to refine our coaching methodologies, guiding students to target and achieve these top-percentile scores.
