What should be safe percentile for getting calls from IIM & what percentile for XAT exam?
While you get calls for interviews, your extra curricular activities are not taken into consideration. What matters are academics, diversity, work experience and CAT percentile. So given the fact that you have your academics on the lower side, you will have to get more than 99.5% for some good calls. Getting a call from IIM A, B,C and I will be almost impossible. I would suggest you to target colleges which don't take academics into much consideration - IIFT, MDI Gurgaon, XLRI, FMS. Also take other exams like XAT, IIFT, SNAP. Once you get the interview call, your extra curriculars will come in very handy and your chances of conversion will be very high.
Since the question has been answered already, I am giving you a list of Top 10 institutions with neither take into consideration of the CAT score nor the past academic track record, so keep a watch out for them:
