  • Shortlisted candidates list will be published in last or third week of January 2016.
  • Prabhav Gupta from Meerut has scored 99.99 percentile.
  • With the addition of the six new IIMs, the chances of seeking admission into IIMs have surely increased. But then with the increase in the total number of seats at IIMs, the cut-offs are also expected to be on a higher side this year. Also, there was a hike in the number of the candidates who took CAT this year as compared to last 5 years.
  • The height of competition can be seen from the fact that in 2014, 167830 candidates appeared for CAT and only 16 of them scored a 100 percentile. There was only 1 female candidate among these 16 toppers.
