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.

what is the persentile in Cat to call IIM Bangalore???

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 12th Dec, 2019

hi,

to get a call from iim bangalore not only depends on cat score but also it depends on your academic curriculum, work experience etc. iim bangalore has 40% weight age to cat score and 50% weight to academics and 10% is on gender diversity and work experience. see as per previous years cutoff and students review you need to have more than 95 percentile in cat exam to get a call from iim's if you belongs to general category.

so study hard and best of luck.

If I apply with my CAT and XAT score, do they consider the better of the two or the average?

Bhaskar Nakkina Student Expert 12th Dec, 2019

Hii,

CAT is a National level Common Admission Test to get admission in IIM's and Some Business Schools to pursue Post Graduation in Management i,e PGDM/MBA. XAT is also another National level exam Conducted by XLRI Jamshedpur for admission to MBA/PGDM Course. Some Business Schools offers CAT and some other XAT. I suggest you to apply CAT exam because you can get admission in IIM's through CAT but not XAT. If you have written Same exams, and the College accepts both you can apply through only One particular exam Score which is better.
