IIM Sambalpur Cutoff 2020

Accepting CAT as the primary exam for admission, IIMs do not release CAT cutoffs publically as their cutoffs are accessible only via account login to candidates who appear for the exam. A lot of news websites including the official IIM websites, however, publish the qualifying cutoffs. But students must note that that there are two types of CAT cutoffs for admission to IIMs – qualifying cutoff (or shortlist cutoff) and final cutoff (or call cutoff). While the qualifying cutoff is announced with the release of admission policy (for particular IIMs), the latter is announced (not publicly) post result declaration.

IIM Sambalpur aspirants must know that the call CAT cutoff 2020 is always higher than the qualifying cutoff. Also, IIMs accept both sectional and overall cutoff for admission. For IIM Sambalpur PGP admission 2021, the overall qualifying cutoff for General category students is 94 percentile, however, it is expected that IIM Sambalpur final CAT cutoff 2020 will be ranging between 95-96 percentile.

After gathering information from multiple sources on the internet, we have come up with an expected final CAT cutoff 2020 for top IIMs and non-IIMs. The below graph compares the minimum final cutoff (expected) required by top Management institutes (ranging between 94 and 96 percentile):
