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. The parameters and their weights vary with each of the IIMs. Some IIMs include CAT score as a parameter for assessment during both the shortlist stages of the selection process.
The six new IIMs, namely IIM Ranchi, Raipur, Rohtak, Trichy, Udaipur, and Kashipur conducts a Common Admission Process (CAP) wherein shortlisted candidates have to participate in common WAT and PI rounds. However, the merit list is declared separately by the IIMs. Last year, i.e. for the admission in 2015-17 batch, the CAP round was conducted by IIM Udaipur.
As the IIMs have announced their selection process, let’s start with each of the admission criteria of 20 IIMs for the academic year 2017-19.
IIM Ahmedabad: This year the IIM-A officials have drastically reduced their minimum CAT cutoff under all the categories to shortlist students for their PGP selection process. 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.
