    • The difficulty level of exam: The higher the exam difficulty, the lower the CAT cutoff, and vice versa.
    • Number of candidates appearing for the exam: The total number of candidates appearing in CAT 2022 will affect the CAT cutoff. That is, the more candidates appear for the exam, the higher the CAT cutoff and vice versa.
    • The number of seats available: The number of seats will also affect the cutoff. 
    • The reputation of the Institute: Well-recognized institutions ranked under the NIRF management ranking will set cutoffs that are higher.
    • Previous year cutoff trends: The 2022 cutoff will be based on the previous year’s cutoff trends.

Conclusion

CAT cutoff refers to the minimum mark required for the candidates to get admission into one of the best MBA colleges. The cutoff will decide if the candidates can get admission into an IIM or other colleges that accept CAT scores.
