MICAT January 2020 Expected Cutoff

MICAT 2, held on January 25, 2020 was of similar level as that of MICAT 1 held in December. There were no major deviations either in difficulty level or pattern. Expected Sectional cutoff for MICAT Aptitude test in MICAT January 2020 exam is as follows: 

Divergent Convergent Thinking  9.5-11.5 Marks (out of 30 marks)
Verbal Ability  8.5-9.5 Marks (out of 25 marks)
Quant and DI 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. 

MICAT Psychometric Test pattern was similar to MICAT 1 – 150 Question pattern and just like MICAT 1, students did not have much time to ponder much on one question.

MICAT January 2020 pattern is as follows:

Section Name Questions Time Limit (min.)
Section 1: Psychometric Test 150 30
Psychometric Test 150 30
Section 2: Aptitude Test 105 105

Quantitative Ability and Data Interpretation 25 No specific time limit
General Awareness 25 No specific time limit
Divergent and Convergent Thinking 30 No specific time limit
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 ‘Environment is a resource meant for consumption’. For the first two questions, students had to write three points each, ‘for’ and ‘against’ the topic. These two questions carried 10 marks each.

The third question asked the candidate to suggest three points in which young professionals can stay off the environmental controversy.

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. This question carried 30 marks.
