CAT 2017 Toppers

As per the initial reports, a total of 20 candidates have scored a perfect 100 percentile in CAT 2017. The trend is very similar to last year’s CAT Result where 20 CAT toppers had scored the perfect score.

One major difference that was witnessed in this year’s CAT Result 2017, especially in the profile of CAT 2017 toppers was that women candidates and non-engineering candidates managed to enter the list of toppers. Last year, in CAT 2016 Result, all male engineers managed to top the toughest MBA entrance exam; this year two female candidates and three MBA aspirants from non-engineering backgrounds made it to the elite list of CAT 2017 toppers.

CAT 2017 Results: The Way Ahead

The announcement of CAT 2017 Result and the names of CAT 2017 toppers is just the beginning of the screening or admission process for IIMs and other top MBA colleges in India. Following the declaration of the CAT 2017 Results, the respective IIMs and other top B-schools in India will initiate the short-listing process to select the best candidates suited for their MBA academic programmes.

The process would include Written Ability Test (WAT), Personal Interview (PI) and/or Group Discussion (GD) rounds as part of the screening test. Those candidates who are able to crack these additional rounds will be able to secure a seat in the premier MBA colleges in India.

As per official estimates, IIMs are expected to shortlist around 20000 candidates for final admission rounds and of that nearly 5000 candidates would be offered admission to the upcoming MBA batch in top 20 IIMs across the country.

MBA aspirants who have not managed to secure the perfect score of 100 percentile in CAT 2017 need not be disappointed. In past there have been several instances where IIMs and other best MBA colleges have shortlisted candidates with lower percentile scores, based upon their academic or work profiles.

Note- Please note, the information provided above is of last year; will be updated when the CAT 2018 result is announced.
