Which MBA institute do I apply to?
Get news updates:What's this?
Advertisement
November 21, 2006

The Common Admission Test 2006 is over, paving the way for Group Discussions, Personal Interviews and a seemingly endless wait for calls from institutes. And many of you are waiting for that magical call from IIMs.

 

"Which of the IIMs give weightage to work experience?", "What are the actual cutoffs?" -- these were some of the questions asked by MBA aspirants during a recent chat with ARKS Srinivas, Sunil Kumar and Sai Kumar, CAT trainers from T.I.M.E. 

For those of you who missed the chat, here's the transcript.

 


 

ARKS SRINIVAS says, Hi everyone, we are sorry for the delay in starting the chat. We will now be posting answers to all relevant questions.

 


 

AV asked, Hello Sir. I have a overall score of 115 with 42 in Quants and DI each and 31 in Verbal. Can I expect calls from top 3 IIMs ? ...I have 3.5 years of work-ex. Please reply
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Hi AV, with 115, you have a very good chance.

 


 

ARKS SRINIVAS says, We, at T.I.M.E., have been working on the cutoffs for the IIMs. These are the IIM cutoffs expected for CAT 2006 -- Quant: 32-34; DI/Reasoning: 26-28; Verbal/RC: 18-20; OVERALL for one IIM call: 100-102.

 


 

nikhil asked, with a score in the range of 92/+-4 marks,where should i apply?
Sunil answers, You should be looking at NITIE, IME, KJ SOM, TAPMI, MICA and others at that level and below.

 


 

radhika asked, Hi sir.. my overall score is 102,with DI:50,VA:24 and QA:28..will i get a call from IIms? what institutes can i apply to and what wud be my percentile?
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, You have an excellent chance of getting at least one call from an IIM.

 


 

Harry asked, Hi Mr ARKS, please let me know if IIMs also consider work ex while giving calls???? My score is: DI: 38 QA: 33 VA: 29 Overall: 100 work ex: 3.5 please tell my chances?????
Sunil answers, Only IIMB seems to have given a "slight" weightage to work-ex even before giving out calls -- that too, only over the last two to three years. However, one cannot say whether it will continue to do so or whether other IIMs will start to do so this year.

 


 

AvijeetSingh asked, Dear Srivas, I have 2 years IT work ex. I have got 12 in VA, 45 in DI and 79 in Quant. (Total 136). Will I get calls from IMI, IMT, TAPMI, BIM, KJSOM, IISWBM, IFMR, FORE, IIFM, ITM or LBSIM despite such pathetic VA score?
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Chances are high from almost all these institutes. You have a very good overall score -- probably above 99 percentile or even 99.6 percentile. But due to VA, you will miss out on the IIMs. Very sorry about that.


 

uday asked, Hi...my score...QA-42,VA-24,Di-24....From which colleges can i expect call letters....do i have chance for MDI,spjain and nitie
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Yes for all three. Border case for IIMs (DI is your undoing).

 


 

dfgd asked, Hi Sir, I am getting 94 ( va 26, qa-28, di 40). I am from SC.What can I expect? is qa score too low?
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Should get IIM calls. Definitely more than one.

 


 

dirkkuyt asked, pls reply i have got qa-65.di-35,va-10 total -110.would i get a call from mdi,nitie i have 1.5 yrs work ex
Sunil answers, Yes, you should be getting calls from both of them.

 


 

Anusheel asked, Hi Arks..with a score of 50 in Quant, 47 in DI and 21 in Verbal (total -118).. what are my chances of getting a call from IIMs? Also let me know about NITIE and SP Jain.
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Very good for even the IIMs. All the best. NITIE almost guaranteed.

 


 

CATrina asked, Sir....I did not study much but am very intelligent and beautiful. I can get through GD & PI with my looks. My CAT went well and maybe I will score close to 100. How can I use my looks to get in to the IIMs?
Sunil answers, IF you try and use your looks, then you surely will not make it.

 


 

SUDHIR asked, i have 36 in DI 30 IN VA nad 25 in quant wat are the chances for MDI AND NITIE AND SP JAIN....
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Very decent for all three.

 


 

HUNTER_OF_CAT asked, is ISB better than IIM ??
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Not necessarily.

 


 

nehaa asked, sir i m getting a score of 43 in di,26 in va and 31 in qa what percentile i sld expect ,and in which colleges sholud i apply
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Close to 98.5.

 


 

gargakshat asked, Sir are the cut-offs posted by time and others realistic enuf there seeom to be way too many people clearing these cut-offs??
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, I just posted the new cutoffs of TIME at the beginning of the chat.

 


 

AvijeetSingh asked, Dear Srivas, I have 2 years IT work ex. I have got 12 in VA, 45 in DI and 79 in Quant. (Total 136). Will I get calls from IMI, IMT, TAPMI, BIM, KJSOM, IISWBM, IFMR, FORE, IIFM, ITM or LBSIM despite such pathetic VA score?
Sunil answers, 136 is not a pathetic score. And yes, you should be getting calls from almost all these institutes.

 


 

yoda asked, At the cost of repeating myself, math-83, va-35, di-46. Good (excellent, I daresay) academic record. What do you think my chances of getting GD/PI calls from the Top 3 are? Don't you think the cutoffs announced are a bit too low if IIMs are going to call all candidates who clear the cutoffs? More likely, IIMs will prune out all applicants who don't meet the cutoffs and arrange the remaining in descending order to get the calls-list.. is this the more likely explanation? Also, with 35, what would my VA percentile be, approximately? Please answer!
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Cutoffs are those marks below which the IIMs WILL NOT CALL. That does not mean that anyone above the cutoffs WILL BE called. However, in your case, if the Verbal is correct (about the other two, there is no ambiguity), then you will get all six calls. Congrats!

ARKS SRINIVAS answers, 85 to 96.

PK asked, Sir my total is 110 with 53 in VA 39 in PS and 18 in DI . I will not get IIMs but Could I get HR of MDI or TAPMI??? I have 6 months work experience .
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, YES, absolutely. Do apply to TAPMI. And BIM as well.

 


 

MOTTI_BILLI asked, DI 69-75, QA 76, VA 50 What should I expect?

sushant agarwal asked, i am having 43 in DI ,33 in QA and 4 in VA....total 80...can i expect a call from IMI TAPMI and IMT ,KJ somaiya....

ARKS SRINIVAS answers, If VA is correct, then ALL SIX. Good show.

 


 

av_vasumathi asked, Hi. If I have attempted a question where none of the answers were right. And if I had marked the closest, how would that be considered.
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Chances are that they will ignore those questions.

 


 

PratikT asked, Hello Sir, a score of 49 ! dismal due to VA/RC. can i apply to ne gud b-school ?? pls reply
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, We will put up the scores and corresponding institutes in a day or two.

ARKS SRINIVAS answers, If QA is 16, then you stand almost no chance for IIMs and even for NITIE and MDI. Sorry about this.

Sunil answers, Consider XAT, JMET, FMS, and IIFT.

ARKS SRINIVAS answers, You are just about on the borderline. Chances are that you may get a call or two. MDI too, should be close, as you have just 29 in QA. The cutoff is expected to be slightly higher.

 


 

nice_billi asked, DI 20-25, QA 15-20, VA 10-15 shoud I expect anything ?? I AM a TIME STUDENT

Also these scores were secured with preparations spreading over a week ... had not prepared for the entire year...so should i be considering giving CAT again next year with better preparations??
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, I guess, it depends on whether you are doing a job right now. If yes, then you can consider writing CAT again. But before that, there are many other exams coming your way. First, give your best shot to those.

 


 

nehaa asked, sir i m getting a score of 43 in di,26 in va and 31 in qa , in which colleges sholud i apply
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, MDI surely. All others under CAT would consider you.

 


 

this asked, Hello SIr, I am a TIME student....my total score is 120, breakup is VA-31, QA- 46, DI-43....how many calls are possible...what could be the percentile, is IIMB/C possible?
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, You have a decent chance of getting three to six calls.

 


 

TakeMode asked, Hi ARKS, I am TIME Student......... Due to ambiguity in VA keys, I took the 'mode' of keys from - TIME, IMS, PT and CL. VA - 40 (mode method), Quant - 58 (sure), DI - 56 (one key mismatch but TIME solution is the only one correct!) total - 154. What would be my percentile - VA and Overall??? All Calls?
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, :-) You are truly going to go the IIMs. Good show on the MODE factor. But we are very sure of our KEY. You should get all calls.

 


 

amit333333 asked, hello sir.. i'm nishant.. Chemical Engg.. with 7 mnths work exp. and overall first class academics... and according to your answers for CAT 2006, i'm getting ( 38 in DI, 37 QA, 19 VA. overall 94)..so wat could be my percentile in CAT. and which colleges i should go for..MDI.IMT, SPjain??
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, You should apply to MDI. Even others actually.

 


 

prax asked, Hi sir,i'm getting 50 in di,42 in qa and 28 in eng....overall 120....what should i expect at dis score....also would i be able 2 clear da verbal cut-off...
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, At that score, you will easily get two to five calls.

ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Should be around 96.

 


 

vat asked, sir plzzzzzzzzzzz reply ->my score is qa -20 di - 60 eng -30 overall- 100+.. can i expect call from mdi nd spjain ???? i have 2.5 yrs work ex.

ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Can you please wait for a day? We will be able to give a better analysis. Thanks.

 


 

Sameer asked, Hi Srinivas, I have 1.5 yrs of work ex. and expecting a score of around 93-102 marks with QA: 50, DI: 40, VA: 3-12. What could be my percentile and which institute can I get admission to?
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Though you score is good, VA is the undoing. You should apply to IMT, TAPMI, and the others under CAT, except MDI.

 


 

TakeMode asked, Thanks Arks.......I know TIME keys are accurate as I am getting 40 by that also! Please comment on English (and overall-154) percentile also.........????
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, At least 99.9 overall -- my bet. English is not an issue at all. Start on GD and Interviews.

 


 

core3 asked, Is their any possibility that cut offs for people with work ex be lower than for freshers. I am a TIME student and my marks as per TIME are VA-18, DI- 46 , QA-71. I will have close to 2 yrs of work ex next yr What can I expect ???...Since verbal is going to be so crucial for someone like me considering IIMS . Its like binary 0 or binary 1 can IIMs be expected to have lower cut off for people with work ex
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, I really hope so. For IIMB, it definitely will be. Others too, have taken lesser scores in individual sections in various years including CAT 2005. So well, cross your fingers. And prepare for other exams.

 


 

Vatlaggayi asked, i might get only 110. I am sure I will get calls but my ego hurts

ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Yes, I guess you should apply to IMT and TAPMI. English section score can vary depending on what the actual key is. So, take heart.

 


 

tanya asked, Sir, my QA is 29 out of 100. But there were 2 printing errors. So, out of 92, it comes to about 32. My DI is 28 and VA is 45. 2 yrs work ex in a managerial position. and recently started my own venture. Do I stand any remote chance of getting an IIM call?? Sir, please reply..
ARKS SRINIVAS answers, Just about an outside chance from a couple of IIMs.

 


 

topcat asked, getting 121 total (di 46 Qa 39 VA 36) what are the chances of IIM calls n how many?
Sai answers, Topcat you seem to have cracked it! I think you can look at atleast 3 calls given your even split

 


 

ARKS SRINIVAS says, Hey guys, we will be back on chat tomorrow at 4 pm. Also, we will put up an FAQ on rediff as well as www.time4education.com. Most of the questions that are being asked will be answered through that. Thanks and bye!
