This is not the right thread. This Q & A is only for those who have scored between 50 and 75 percentile. Add your query here if you haven't already : https://insideiim.com/community-question/cat-2017-results-enter-scores-percentiles/
I got 92 %in 10th 88 %in 12th 68% in grad Got 60 %ile in CAT , I am planning to drop this year take a work ex and then give CAT , woul my grad scores hinder me from getting into iims even if I get good %ile next year ?
@Nikita, the selection process changes every year. There are some b-schools who don't count grad scores and some b-schools that give weightage to them. It all depends on what the selection criteria is for each IIMs for CAT 2018 selection. Since you are planning to take CAT again this year, follow this thread - https://insideiim.com/community-question/should-i-take-cat-again/?src=50275
It will affect a bit but bein a girl u will get points for gender diversity heat will compensate for it and also some clz gives less/no weightage to grad marks.. good luck.

Yes you probably should. You won't make it to top IIMs because of your grad score but maybe some other decent schools in the 85 to 95 percentile category assuming you score that much next year.

There are definitely chances for the next year only if you lift your percentile by a great deal. Good luck with the prep. :)

@Sasi - Check MYRA, IFIM Bangalore. Also, given your acads you could look at MISB Bocconi profile based call but you may have to take Bocconi Test. You can ask them here : https://insideiim.com/community-question/cat-2017-results-profile-evaluation-for-misb-bocconi-class-of-2020-begins-june-2018/ You can also consider taking GMAT and looking at ISB/GLIM next year.
@Ishan - You should hope for a few calls from the mentioned schools. But your acads are on the lower side which could make conversion slightly tough. You should try prepare well for interviews. Taking CAT again may not help as IIMs look difficult with these acads.
