Default Re: IIMS Criteria Selection

The Indian Institutes of Management IIM shortlist students on the basis of Common Admission Test (CAT), and later finalise admission on the overall performance of group discussion and a personal interview.

The IIM Admission Criteria is a two-step process-

Common Admission Test –CAT, and

Personal Interview (PI) and Written Ability Test (WAT)

Candidates are first shortlisted on the basis of the CAT cut-off percentiles, sectional as well as overall, along with past academic record and work experience.

After the shortlist, the candidates are called for WAT- PI rounds conducted by each of the IIMs.

The selection at this round is based on the performance at each stage of the round with assessment on past academic records, work experience, co-curricular activities and diversity factors (if applicable).

Each parameter is assigned a particular weight-age on the basis of which the final merit list is prepared.

IIM Ahmedabad:

The overall CAT cutoff required for a general category student to get shortlisted has been reduced to 80 from last years’ 90 percentile.

Apparently, the reduction in CAT cutoff by one of the top IIMs indicate towards a difficult CAT paper this year, and also that other IIMs may follow the same.

Not only the minimum CAT cut-off for the general category has been reduced, the cutoff for Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), Non-creamy Other Backward Castes (NC-OBC) and Persons with disabilities (PWD) have been reduced to 70, 60, 75, and 70 respectively.
