Formula to calculate Application Rating Score

Application Rating Score: AR=0.5*A+1.5*B+2.5*C

Maximum Score for AR = 45

 

IIM Ahmedabad declares notes about the marks obtained to clear caveats on the scoring process of AR:

1. Percentages of marks of a candidate in final year of graduation will be computed based on her/his available marks or the previous year’s final marks.

2. For a candidate having cleared CA/ICWAI/CS without having a bachelor’s degree, the average of intermediate and final examinations’ percentages of marks obtained would be treated as bachelor’s degree marks.

3. For computing AR score of a candidate, scores in all subjects that appear in the mark sheet of 10th and 12th Std. board exams will be considered irrespective of whether the board/university considers them for calculating the percentage.

4. For bachelor’s degree, the percentage of marks awarded by the institute/university will be considered final. If the institute/university does not give the percentage of marks, it will be calculated on the basis of the marks obtained in all subjects listed in the mark sheet.

5. If the percentage of marks awarded by the institute/university does not consider marks obtained in all the subjects as mentioned in the mark sheet for all the years, the candidates must produce a certificate from the institute authority certifying details of the practice at the time of the interview, if shortlisted for the same.

6. If any board/institute/university awards only letter grades without providing an equivalent percentage of marks on the grade sheet, the candidate has to obtain a certificate from the authorities specifying the equivalent marks which should be used for filling the online CAT application form. The original equivalence certificate needs to be submitted at the time of interview, if shortlisted for the same.

7. For candidates having a 5-year integrated master's degree, percentage of marks obtained in the first 3 years will be considered as bachelor’s degree percentage. For candidates in the final year of 5 year integrated master's degree, the marks obtained in the first 3 years will be considered as bachelor’s degree ‘Not Completed’ percentage.

 

Screening for Academic Writing Test (AWT) & Personal Interview (PI)

Candidates will be shortlisted to appear for the Academic Writing Test (AWT) and Personal Interview rounds on the basis of the CAT 2014 cutoff and AR scores as mentioned in the above tables. A merit list will be prepared on the basis of the CAT 2014 percentile and AR for General and reserved category candidates separately. Top 50 candidates or 1% of the number of applicants of IIM Ahmedabad, whichever is less will be shortlisted for AWT and PI rounds.

 

Final Selection

The final selection list will be computed on the basis of Composite Score which will be calculated after the AWT & PI rounds. Regarding the process of computing the Composite Score, IIM Ahmedabad mentions, “First, CAT, AWT and PI scores of a candidate are normalized by dividing it with the corresponding maximum possible score that could be obtained.”

The formula through which CS would be computed is as follows:

 

CS = 0.50 (Normalized PI Score) + 0.10 (Normalized AWT Score) + 0.40 (Normalized CAT Total Score).

Compared to the admission criteria of last year, there is not much change in terms of the CAT cutoff or any other aspect. There is no mention about the Diversity factor in the IIM Ahmedabad admission criteria for PGP 2015-17.

whats think different in a CMAT and a cat

Shiksha 28th Mar, 2020

Hello!

Although both the exams are for getting into Bschools in India for post graduation but there is a huge difference between the two:

  • Cat is common admission test and cmat is common management admission test
  • Cat is one of the most popular exam in india for management given by around 2 lakhs of people and cmat is given by a lesser candidates around 50k-60k.
  • Most of the bschools & iim accept cat score and around only 400+ colleges in india iccepts cmat score.
  • Cat has a higher difficulty level and cmat is a bit on the easier side.
  • Both exams are online but the exam pattern is different. Apart from quantitative ability, verbal ability and logical reasoning that are there in both the exams, cmat also an additional section for gk & current affairs.
  • There are very few top colleges through cmat and many top colleges through cat that you can target.
  • I hope this helps.

what percentile in cat do I need if I have 84 percent in 10th and 92 percent in 12th to get into IIM Indore?

ADIL KHAN Student Expert 28th Mar, 2020

Hii Suraj,

IIM Indore is one such B-school which values your previous academic marks a lot. Your graduation marks matter too. And the stream from which you graduated. You have a good score in class 12th but an average one in class 10th. See it is just not your acads but your work-ex if any, your extracurriculars matter too.

You'll still need a percentile somewhat above 98+ if you are a student of Commerce background. Being from tech. background furthermore makes it difficult for one to get in.

You can visit the following link for more info- https://www.careers360.com/university/indian-institute-of-management-indore

You can reach out to us for more information regarding admissions entrance tests etc.

Hope it helps.

Thanks.

how many % required in 12th for cat

Shaurya Kapoor 27th Mar, 2020

It basically depends upon from college to college and the criteria for short listing. But if you wish to make it to the top colleges of CAT it is advised to score very high percentage of marks in your class x and class xii.


Every year the percentage needed for shortlistment is changed by the college.


The overall shortlistment depends upon your performance in class x and xii , your grades in college , extra curricular activities and your work experience.


All the Best !!!?
