As per the IIM Ahmedabad’s official website, “In view of the fact that for the last two years due to COVID-19, many universities could not conduct exams and based on varied criteria gave pass/promotion certificates. Considering this, the CAT Committee of 2021 had allowed candidates to take CAT 2021 without requiring any minimum percentage of marks in bachelor’s degree.”
