We thank you for making Career Anna MICAT Coaching Course the most successful and popular MICAT Course once again, 5th year consecutively. In this article we bring to you MICAT 1 December 2019 Expected Cutoff.

MICAT December 2019 Expected Cutoff

Expected Sectional cutoff for MICAT Aptitude test in MICAT December 2019 exam is as follows: 

Divergent Convergent Thinking  9-11 Marks (out of 30 marks)
Verbal Ability  8-9 Marks (out of 25 marks)
Quant and DI 6-7 Marks (out of 25 marks)
General Knowledge 5-6 Marks (out of 25 marks)
Overall Cutoff No specific value of cutoff

There is no overall MICAT score cutoff. Reason being for GE PI Call, weighted average of CAT/XAT/GMAT Score and MICAT overall score, with 50% weightage for each. 

Scaled overall score is calculated as sum of scaled sectional scores. Overall scaled score of 50 marks (around 45 raw score) should be super safe to get you the call at 80 percentile in CAT/XAT with a good descriptive writing. 

MICA changed MICAT Psychometric Test pattern drastically this year, and left many aspirants in surprise. MICAT Test centres also had lot of technical and management related issues. 

MICAT December 2019 pattern is as follows:

Section 3: Descriptive Test 4 30
Total 259 165


This section tested the analytical and descriptive writing ability and creative skills of test-takers. The total time given for attempting these questions was 30 minutes. The first three questions were related to each other. The topic for the first three questions was ‘Laziness: How it can benefit society’. For the first two questions, students had to write three points each, ‘for’ and ‘against’ the topic. These two questions carried 10 marks each.

In the third question, students had to write a 300 word answer to ‘suggest steps by which a young manager could ensure that laziness could be used as a tool for organizational success’. The instruction clearly stated that the points for the third question should not include the points stated in the first two questions. Twenty marks were allocated to this question.

The fourth question in this section consisted of four pictures. Students had to write down a particular pictorial combination (A-B-C-D or D-C-B-A or any such combination) and explain it with the help of a story. The pictures were related to an ‘old dilapidated house with a newly constructed gate which was painted red, a shopping complex, a drone in the form of a bee and a window grill with 3 panels’. This question carried 30 marks.


There were 150 questions in this section – up from 27 last year.

In this section, there were no correct or incorrect responses.

Around 30 questions presented a situation/course of action and the test-taker had to mark either True or False.

The other 120 questions were about a particular personality trait or a course of action. Students had to select any one option. The eight options from which students needed to mark their answer were:

  • Totally Disagree
  • Strongly Disagree
  • Disagree
  • Somewhat Disagree
  • Somewhat Agree
  • Agree
  • Strongly Agree
  • Totally Agree

Given that 150 questions were to be attempted in 30 minutes, it was necessary to work fast and mark the answer quickly.
