    1. Hey Rakesh.
      Please go through the note I have put in below the criteria now. In case of CW it is not just one category but there are 6 sub-categories from CW1 to CW6. And for CW1 to CW5 all were shortlisted. Hence, the score is for the candidate with the lowest composite score which might have been from any CW other than 6. Thanks :)

  2. Hi Ronit,
    A really helpful blog. Thanks a lot for putting this up!
    I appeared for CAT'21 and secured a percentile of 98.36, however, the quant percentile is only 79.
    I belong to the CW6 category (wards of ex-servicemen), scored CGPA 10.0 in X, 94.80% in XII & 7.41 in graduation (NIT Kurukshetra) and have a total work experience of 2.5+ years. (2+ years in management consulting)
    Do you think I could get a call with this score and profile?
    Also, given that FMS has only 12 CW seats, would categories CW1-5 be given priority over CW6 when in comes to final seat allotment? Asking this to understand if at all CW6 has a chance to make it to the final list or the seats get exhausted by CW5 in order of priority.

    1. Hello.
      First of all convey my regards to your parents and a huge thanks from my side for serving the country. Have great regards for people from the armed forces !!!

      Secondly your profile is supremely good and I am sure you should be having no issues getting a call from FMS for an interview at least (very minute chance of not getting once).

      Regarding the seat allotment frankly saying I am not sure if there is any internal split or how it it done amongst the different CW sub-categories. The best someone can inform you is from the admissions team. I would suggest dropping in an email to them to ask about this. Thanks and reply in case I can help with anything more :)

    2. no there wont be cw 6 as atleast 50 cw1-5 apply and are selected based on priority

  3. Hello,
    In FMS CS score calculation, if we have >75% in 10th and 12th, it's given 10%. So does it mean we'll get straightaway 10 points or 10% of what score we have in 10/12th?

    1. Hello.
      Frankly saying I am not sure how this would be calculated. You will need to confirm this from the official admissions committee. Just drop them an email and you should receive a response from them clarifying this. Thanks and All the Best :)

  4. My obc waitlist is 178 what are the chances of getting in?

    1. Hello.
      You would get in mostly but would need some time as it would be in later lists. Also, this is as per my experience but no one can say for sure as the waitlist list movement is dynamic each year. Thanks :)

  5. Waitlist no. 32 SC category, is it possible to get a seat?

    1. Hello.
      Yes almost 95 percent confirmed to get a seat in the subsequent lists. Again keeping those 5 percent for just my safety in case the prediction goes haywire. But congrats and All the Best :)

  6. ST waitlist number - 46, any chances?? It has already moved by 10, so it's 36 now.

    1. Hello.
      As per the statistics I have seen over the past couple of years, you are at the very edge. And thus if you convert it would only be by the very last list. However, this is as per what I have seen and my experience and thus can go other way as well. Thanks and All the Best :)

  7. please provide with CAT percentile also :) good luck

    1. Hey.
      I will surely try getting it this year. Though I ask for the same every year, yet the colleges, deny giving the same everytime. Thanks :)
