It is one of the best IITs that produces the cream of India.

It has the best faculty, and the college provides great opportunities.

Infrastructure: Network quality is awesome, with 50 Mbps speed. Unlimited data is provided, and you can use every software here. Hostels are good. All the sports facilities are available.

Placements: Almost all of them were placed, and mostly in the top MNCs. KGP is well known for its 100% placements in recent years. The placements are great. My course is agriculture, but all the students of my course got placed in either IT or finance companies, and the rest applied for higher studies.

CAT score above 95 percentile. The best Iims, call students when they have their percentile above 90% or 95%. You have a good academic background so you just need to score your best in CAT rest there is a fair chance that you will get in.
