Importance of Cut Off

Cut Off is the minimum marks required to qualify in any exam. CAT is the largest management entrance exam conducted in India for MBA and postgraduate diploma courses. The cut off for CAT Exam set by different participating institutes individually is the basis of selection procedure.

CAT aspirants have been increasing with year after year, which makes it difficult for the institutions to provide the available seats to the most deserving candidates. Cut-off helps the participating institutes to short-list candidates for further selection procedure, which includes WAT and GD/PI rounds.

Only those candidates who will acquire more than the overall and sectional CAT 2018 cut off will be short-listed for the additional rounds of selection process. As CAT is held in different slots, the examination authority adopts normalization to equate the candidates’ performance while deciding CAT cut off. The scaled scores obtained during the process are converted into percentiles for the purposes of short-listing.

Thus the importance of cut-off can be easily understood as it the gateway to various management colleges.
