The cut-off for the written ability test or personal interview (WAT/PI) round for IIM admissions is announced before the CAT exam. The campuses publish their IIM CAT score cut-offs for screening applicants. 

The required CAT score, entrance requirements, and other eligibility requirements for IIM selection criteria and admission process are made public before the exam. Candidates who achieve the minimum IIM percentile cut-off specified by the institutes’ admission cells in the CAT exam are invited to the WAT/PI round.
