IIM Ahmedabad Announces Selection Criteria for CAT 2013 (2014-2016 Batch)

IIM Ahmedabad has come up with its selection criteria for CAT 2013 i.e. for 2014-2016 batch.  The minimum percentiles for PGP course according to sections as well as according to different categories have been laid out. Candidates who secure less than the following will not be considered for the next stage. (check below the advertisement)

IMPORTANT NOTE: IIM Ahmedabad will be shortlisting top 50 candidates or 1% students, whichever is less, with highest scores from the 5 academic categories shown in the image below and they will be called for the WA-PI stage directly (Only those who meet the minimum cut-off).  The 5 academic categories are shown below. The final selection of these students too will be done based on the Aggregate score (mentioned below).

For the remaining students, an application rating system would be laid down based on their academic scores in Xth, XIIth and Graduation as shown in the image below:

The rating received will then be replaced in the following formula:

AR=0.5*A+1.5*B+2.5*C  

This will give your application rating score (ARS).

As can be seen from the formula, your graduation scores have been given the most importance.

 Your composite score will then be calculated with the help of your CAT Score and your Application Rating Score according to the following formula:

Composite Score= (Obtained CAT score /450) * 0.7 + (AR/45)*0.3

The students will then be selected on the basis of this composite score for the WA-PI stage.

In the second step, after the completion of written analysis and personal interviews (WA-PIs) of all candidates short-listed in the first step, candidates for admission to the 2014-16 batch of the PGP at IIM Ahmedabad are selected from among the candidates who have attended the WA-PI.

The WA-PI Score is based on the following: performance in the written analysis, personal interview, verifiable awards and recognitions, academic performance, exceptional achievements, extra-curricular activities, post-degree work experience, post-graduation education etc.

Once the process is over, final selection will be done.

For final selection, Aggregate score will be used where 70% weightage will be given to WA-PI score and 30% to Composite Score

  1. hi! I am 35 years old and had scored 35% in ssc and 48% in hsc. I have 1 subject left for my graduation which I will complete this year for sure.
    I have work Experience of more than 18years with good exposure to business stratagies and decision making ability which had helped my organisition to avoid any future error and prosper. I have Good communication skill with ability to mould myself in whatsoever maner as well as lead and motivate other for the organisational goals.
    I have my dream to persue MBA through a reputed institute like IIM itself. If I apply for CAT and score above 95% do You think I will be able to get admission in IIM.
    Looking Forward for your reply. Thanks

  2. Hi! Could You kindly advice me about IIM ahmedabad fee structure. Thank You.

  3. What should be the approx %ile as per last year to get into the top 1%ile for commerce grads ie AC-3

  4. Is there a way to estimate the top 1% of a category, so that you get a fair idea of the competition you need to beat to get to the top?

  5. Will the top 50 students from each category be admitted directly?
    Its written that these top50 or1% students will be selected on the basis of aggregate score which in turn calls for composite score. Graduation marks are required to calculate composite score thus marginalising humanities students. Please explain the top 50 wala point.
