CAT 2021 eligibility criteria
- Academic qualification: Candidates should have a Graduation/ Bachelor’s degree in any stream from a recognized University/ Institute. Final year students are also eligible to apply for CAT 2021.
- To be eligible for the CAT exam 2021, 50% marks (45% for SC/ ST/ PwD) in Graduation/ Bachelor’s degree was mandatory. However, due to the pandemic situation in the country, some changes have been made in this regard:
- Candidates in the final year: Students with “promotion/ pass” instead of “award of marks” certificates in any of the last two years of the bachelor’s degree can enter the “Promotion or Pass” option in the CAT application form. It will allow the student to complete and submit the CAT 2021 application form. This eligibility relaxation is also applicable to those final year students with an “award” of marks.
- Candidates graduated in 2020 and 2021: Due to the implementation of the above point, and considering that there could be different evaluation patterns adopted by different institutes/ universities across the country due to the COVID pandemic, the CAT committee has decided to remove the minimum percentage of marks criterion (50% and 45% [or equivalent CGPA] respectively) for the CAT 2021 exam.
