IIM Ahmedabad 2017 Cutoff (Expected)

Going by the previous year IIM Ahmedabad cutoff trends, the cutoff this year is expected to be around 98+ percentile for General category students and a bit on lower side for reserved category candidates. The expected IIM Ahmedabad cutoff 2017 will be provided on this page after the conduct of CAT 2017 exam.

The candidates must also meet the IIM Ahmedabad admission criteria 2018-20  and according to it, they must have an exceptional academic record, can gain points for work experience and other attributes.

However, in the past there have been instances where the candidates with low percentile like 85+ have also made it to IIM Ahmedabad and candidates with 95+ percentile in CAT failed to get call. The reason behind this can be the overall profile of the students being not impressive. Then, there were candidates who met the IIM Ahmedabad cutoff 2017 and appeared for the PI but still didn’t get selected. So, crossing the cutoff is not the only thing required.
