What Are The Changes in CAT Eligibility Criteria 2021?

IIM Ahmedabad has made a few changes in the eligibility criteria for the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2021. Now, the students issued with a ‘promotion/pass’ certificate instead of a ‘marks’ certificate (in any of the last 2 years of graduation) due to the pandemic can apply for CAT using the ‘promotion or pass’ option in the application form. 

This revised eligibility relaxation is also applicable for final year graduation students who have received an ‘award of marks’ certification. This will allow the aspirants to submit the application forms despite the requirements of minimum eligibility criteria of 50% (general) and 45% (SC/ST/PwD) respectively.

Students must note that this exception in the eligibility criteria is only applicable for students who have either completed or are in the final year of graduation this year.
