Hi Ankit, Wanted to know from you if I should be reappearing for CAT 2017. I have 20 months of work ex as of now and this year at a percentile of 94.48 i converted IMT G, IMI AND XIMB but chose IMT G. My acads: 10- 86.00, 12th - 80.20, B tech - 74.00. Should i reattempt CAT or join IMT? I dont have any financial obligations and i am23 years old also i am earning fine in my job of software testing. And if you suggest to reattempt, what should be the percentile required to get a call from the old iims. Also waiting for another year will take my IT work ex to 30 months.Will that be a problem if i would want to switch to a core marketing role? Thanks in advance for answering!

Your acad profile is average. If you are sure of scoring 99+ only then does it make sense to wait. Maybe you can join and take CAT again while being at IMT. Tough to do but it is an option. Also, check IMT average salary and compare with your current salary. It will be an important indicator.

Your acad profile is good. If you can get 99+ you will get old IIM calls. It is very difficult but it is possible to take CAT while studying elsewhere. I know someone who was at XLRI and then the following year went to IIM A.
