A Day@ Planet IIM (A)ctiveness
Careers360 visited the legendary Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad and spent one day in this amazing campus. Before visiting, we were wondering how the environment, facilities, the faculty and students would be. But, most importantly we were worried about how it would be to spend one day.
Here we were, in the blistering heat of Ahmedabad in a grand campus with buzzing second-semester students, with that fresh look of becoming a senior in what is one of the preferred and top IIM- IIM Ahmedabad.
Established in 1961 and architected by Louis Kahn, IIM-A offers two years full-time post-graduate programme in management, along with other executive doctoral programmes. As our campus tour starts, we realized the grandness of this place which can be referred to as a so-called Planet in itself. We have all heard the quality and perseverance of the students from this institute, and we felt the same, as like it was all in the IIM-Air. The activeness, determination, passion, and the excellence, were all felt with our each step.
With curiosity to know what it is that makes this IIM such that student aspires to appear in CAT and take admission here, we started our day as early as possible in the morning.
Day Starts- 7 AM- Beware if you are a sleepaholic!
If you thought cracking CAT with a high percentile and taking admission in IIM Ahmedabad was your biggest challenge. I say, you think again. Starting your day run at 7 first for exercise, then to the mess and later for the classes, you hardly get time for your sleep. And God save you if you are not a morning bird!
People get up at 8, rush to grab a bite if possible, and mostly reach class by the deadline of 08:44:59.
Lecture hammering begins- 8:45 AM
The lecture timings have Zero Error policy, as in; a student is not allowed to enter into the class even if s/he is late by one second. You got to be in the class before time. Such is a marathon for a WIMWI, an alias for Well Known Institute of Management in West India- The Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad.
The class-break- class-break-class – is a robotic function that happens every day in the morning. And then there is a fight for CP, passÃ© class participation marks. So even if you are sleepy, you have to be attentive.
No full stop even in Lunch- 1 pm
Lectures, case studies and question answer rounds for about three hours; lunch break seems to be a savior, but, only if, the brain stop ticking WORK. During lunch, students frantically check their mails, check quiz boards. And if the hell hasn’t stopped showering its blessings and students have a quiz to be conducted, instead of lunch students start preparing for it. Otherwise, they go back to rooms where most people waste time during next 2-3 hours but few smart ones sleep.
Preparation Time- 5 PM
After completing the average person’s dose of a day’s work within six hours, the part of becoming Hercules starts. Where some starts the next day preparations and completes the assignments, some goes for the less academic endeavours.
The Playground full of athletes and groups of club members chatting is like literarily the Buzz of the campus. And, as usual on the other side, the hostel environment is full of chats, personal activities, discussions and so on.
Fill-up – 8 PM
The Wimwians finally get real time for them where they charge up themselves with good food for the further challenges. The big and loud mess sees dine-out students having faces similar to that of someone walking out of a happy meal drive thru.
9 PM Analysis
A good day's work ends after dinner. Nightfall sees a hundred groups huddled together in rooms, grounds, library, apparently all over campus to discuss over the next day submissions. When the Wimwians end their day, they know that every moment of the day has taken him that much closer to being a manager par excellence, to add-on to the IIM-A glory. They Sleep, which they say is something that’s a godsend at IIMA.
Well the A explains the Activeness of the students here. And the life @ Planet IIM A continues with early morning sleep, rush to class, and lots of other stuff. A day spent here is a step towards your managerial dream.

Questions related to IIM Ahmedabad
What should I fill in "year of passing" in 12th field in CAT form 2020 if I passed 12th in 2016 and appeared for Improvement in all subjects in 2017 ? Also I have improved my percentage so which marks should I enter? Please Help. Remember I passed all my subjects in 2016.
It is a tricky situation but the answer is simple. You passed the senior secondary exam in the year of 2016 so you should mention 2016 as the year of passing. You are saying that you secured more percentage in improvement, then you can mention the improved grades in the form. But at the time of interviews, you will have to carry both the marksheets . Only The one with the more percentage , shall be considered valid. Which is the improved one in your case.
And lastly, dont worry . This does not affect the admission criteria .As long as you have cracked the entrance exam and proved your caliber for the respective exam, you are pretty much good to go.
63/64/62 percentage in 10th/12th/graduation. category sc currently working as bank clerk in sbi total work experience to date is 26 months. what cat score is needed to get a call from IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore and Calcutta.
Sorry for that but your academics are pretty low. But belonging to a SC category might fetch you a chance to get a call from IIM A, B, C. All IIMs have different parameters and the weightage of these parameters also differs from college to college.
I will advise you to personally visit the official website of these college and look for the last year cut offs as well as their criteria of admission. Scoring above 97% percentile will be a pretty decent score and can help you to some extent in getting a call from either of the college.
All the very best.

Congratulations on very good score in CAT and admission in to IIM Ahmedabad. IIMs offer good scholarships to merit students. I suggest you to refer the official website for further details on scholarship.All the best
can i get admission after 12 directly? and if not can i get admission in between from iim indore to iim ahmedabad by giving CAT say after 3 yrs in indore?
No you can't get direct admission after completing your 12th. For admission into IIM Indore after 12 th you need to appear for the IPM exam which is a five year integrated program conducted by IIM INDORE every year. After qualifying for the exam you can take admission if got selected in the final merit list. The IIM indore now offers a 'defer offer ' to students that allows them to exit the program after 3 rd year with a BA degree in hand. After that you can appear for CAT exam to get admission into other top B Schools including IIM Ahmedabad. Your seat will be reserved in IIM Indore for the two consecutive year that will allow your direct admission to PGP program to complete your last two years in case if you want to.
Hope that helps.
