  1. I’ve always wanted to get into MICA, and no, I don’t mean “that is, in case I don’t make it to an IIM”. Ever since I heard about this place, I’ve made up my mind that this is the place to get into. (Heck, I even blew 11 grand to write GMAT just because MICA accepts GMAT scores as well!). Anyway, this site made me drool just a little bit more. Keep up the good work and as an ICICI commercial goes – “Jeetey Raho!”
    Gracias !

  2. are there any reservations in mica???

  4. Amazing blog, of great help :) thanks a billion

  5. Hi,
    I want to advance my career in Marketing and advertising and thats the reason i want to join MICA.But going through the placement list of 2008 i didn’t see many big players like AC Neilsen , Star , JWT etc in the companies list.Also it says 94 ppl were placed.Can you give me an idea of your batch size.
    Also about the internships,where do MICAn’s generally do their internships….???

  6. Hello

    Is there any special preference given to students who wish to enter MICA thru CAT and not GMAT..CAT bein the toughest of all the xams..

  7. @jagdish – no, there are no reservations in MICA whatsoever..admissions are solely based on merit.

    @sharad – 87-88%ile and above is that what makes you eligible for getting a call.

    @Saumya – 94 people were placed because there were 94 people in the batch. As far as the companies that you mentioned are concerned, not everybody comes to recruit every year. However, we do have these companies as our regular recruiters. You can find more information about the placements on the website.

    @Bindu – there is no preference given as such, but the fact that not more than 10 people are taken through GMAT says a lot..

    Hope your queries are answered! Keep posting your concerns,

    Till then, bbye.

  8. gr8 blog… thank guys… well, i think i kinda blew up my CAT… According to my analysis, my Quants and DI score will b better that Verbal… Blame the negative marking… anyways..

    QUANT 10.07

    DI 53.33

    VERBAL 99.18

    TOTAL 89.70

    do i have any chance ofgetting a call for MICAT this year?

    PS i dont have any work-ex.


  20. Hey, one more MICA worshiper here. My CAT scorecard says:
    OA : 89.30
    QA : 65.19
    LOGIC & DI : 81.27
    VA : 92.23
    I am aware of the fact that MICA cut off is overall 90 percentile. But i have heard that in case you have less than 90 overall, then you should have more than 90 percentile in verbal. When i came to know about that, i was like “Whoa!”. I just wanted to confirm whether i can convert my “Whoa!” into “Phew!”. As in, is what i just said true?

  21. Hi,

    I scored

    Quantitative 13.00 (out of 100) 62.91
    Logic & Data Interpretation 14.00 (out of 96) 53.22
    Verbal 50.00 (out of 160) 95.51
    Total 77.00 (out of 356) 87.10

    I also have a work ex of 4+ years, with average academics..Will I get a call for MICAT 09?

    You can also inform me on apeksha_pradhan@yahoo.com

  22. Hey,

  23. Hello dear i am not able to look for the course in advertising and also want to know about the admission criteria. Please let me know

  24. Hey,
    Thanks a million for your replies to my earlier queries. One more thing that i wanted to know is around what time will i be receiving the MICAT call letter? They said the first week of Feb, but does it get later than that? Approximately on what date should i finally uncross my fingers and stop waiting for the call letter?
    Thanks once again for your help and guidance.

  25. @ Gargi.You will get a call for MICAT ’09. Considering your tot Percentile and High percentile in Verbal..

  26. hi there,
    cat 08 was a disaster,but mica is the place for me so gmat 09 plus cat 09 just for mica.
    so are there total 10 calls micat for ppl who submit gmat scores or total 10 seats …could you please clarify?

  27. hie guys…one part of my ques remained unanswered…where do MICAn’s do their intern’s and what are the dominating intern profiles….?? Also can you suggest any kind of specific book learning apart from CAT for the MICAT paper….?? i went through some sample papers and saw that much of it is what we have already learnt and the ques is can we recall that…

  28. I have a few questions here.
    1.Based on the Cat score people will be selected for MICAT.
    The question is will everyone be eligible for the next round of GD/PI or can even MICAT will act like just another means of filtering out more candidates.
    2. Do you need to answer all questions in MICAT and further there are no negative marking for wrong answers? Is it true??

  29. I scored 64% in quant 94 in VA and 77.77 in DI in CAT and still couldnt get a call at 89.30 total i probably thought its gonna be somewhere near 88 so i had a chance …now hopes are shattered pls let me know abt the cut off this yr….

  30. Sir i got shortlisted for MICAT.I would like to know if any preparation is required for this test.

  38. I have a query. How is MICAT evaluated? I could not find the weightage given to different sections of MICAT. Are they equal? The reasaon I am asking is because the story writing did not go good. Time finished before I could finish the story.

    Further, could you also tell about the kind of questions asked in the PI and what kind of group exercise is asked to do?
    What is evaluated in it? What if the exercise could not be completed, does it mean u r out?

    How and what should be prepared for the PI apart from the general Why MBA etc.?

    Esp what should be an answer to Why MICA? i have heard they r very particular about this question. I have my own reasons but am not sure the interviewers wud like them. could u plz suggest certain points?
