Here you can get the answer to the question of "how much CAT percentile I need to score based on my profile.
The cutoffs for various b-schools vary depending on one's profile. If you're targeting the IIMs, the CAT cutoffs required to get a call will depend on your profile. On the other hand, eminent Non-IIMs such as FMS Delhi, MDI etc, focus more on your entrance test (i.e. CAT) score. These Non-IIM b-schools thus give more weight to the entrance score and less weight to your past academic performance. So, the cutoffs depend on the MBA college you are targeting.
