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.
