Re: IIM management quota

Indian Institute of Management (IIM) does not have any management quota they always go on merit basis based on your entrance exam and Group Discussion and Personal Interview.

There is a NRI quota for Foreign students , admission is through GMAT but there is no Management Quota as such

It is just for SC, ST, OBC and in some institutes NRIs quota is also there.

CAT Eligibility:-

You must hold a Bachelor’s Degree, with at least 50% marks or equivalent CGPA [45% in case of the candidates belonging to Scheduled Caste (SC), Scheduled Tribe (ST) and Differently Abled (DA).
