IIM Ahmedabad Admission Criteria 2019-21

 

IIM Ahmedabad mentions, “At different stages of the selection process ‘Application Rating’ (AR) score of an applicant will be used. An applicant’s AR score is the sum of the rating scores ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ based on their percentage of marks obtained in the 10th standard, the 12th standard (depending upon the stream, viz., ‘Science’, ‘Commerce’ and ‘Arts & Humanities’) and the bachelor’s degree programme (depending upon the discipline) respectively. For different streams/disciplines the equivalent ARs are arrived at by using a (sort of) percentile equivalence of the score distributions using previous year’s CAT data.”

 

After the first round of screening through CAT 2018 scores, candidates’ past academic records would be rated based on the weightages assigned at each percentage range. Following tables bring to you the Rating Scores of Class X, XII and Bachelor’s Degree.
