CAT 2016 exam results were declared on 9 January, 2017. Twenty candidates emerged a the toppers, with 100 percentile score. Despite Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) drive to gender and push academic diversity, all the 20 toppers are engineers and men. "However, in the sectionals, many non-engineers and female candidates have scored 100 percentile," Professor Rajendra K Bandi, Convener, CAT 2016, told Catch.

Slowly, reports of candidates with 100 percentile are trickling in. So far, we've found seven candidates scoring the perfect 100. The list of toppers will be updated when details arrive:
