    • CAT is an common admission test which is organised by the Indian institute of management (IIM) for the admission into MBA course.
    • For it, you should have completed the bachelor degree in any stream from an university which must be recognised.
    • You must have got the minimum 50% in that graduation degree.
    • If you are from the reserved category then only 45% marks is required.
    • So you only be eligibile for this exam if you are from reserved category.
    • Here the aggregate marks is considered but not alone final year marks.

    You can only apply for the CAT exams if you meet the below eligibilty criteria.

    Graduation pass in any stream with minimum aggregate of 50% marks for General and OBC candidates and minimum aggregate of 45% marks for the SC/ST candidates.

    Final year Graduation students can also apply


    So, if your overall aggregate marks is less than 50% than you cannot apply for the CAT exams.


    However you can apply to other MBA written tests where minimum marks is not required in Graduation Level and they are:
    >> XAT
    >> MAT
    >> CMAT
