Can I join IIM Ahmedabad using GMAT rather than going for CAT?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 14th Oct, 2019

Dear Akshat, CAT is exclusively conducted by the IIMs. So the selection for admission to any of the 20 IIMs is through CAT exam. Unfortunately no other score except for CAT score is accepted for IIM Ahmedabad. You can check their selection process at: https://www.iima.ac.in/web/pgp/apply/domestic/admission/selection-process

i have 94 in 10th and 95 in 12th....how much percentage should i need to score in my graduation ..so that i may get a call from IIM A,B,C and also how much should i aim in Cat exam?

Rehan Alam Student Expert 10th Oct, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

The ideal profile for getting a call from holy trinity ABC is 90+ in 10th and 12th and 85+ in graduation and 1.5 years of work experience. After this profile 95 percentile will fetch you a call from one of ABC and 98+ will definitely get you a call from ABC and FMS also.

However, generally students having graduation from BCOM/ECONOMICS fields can get a call at 75% also as the IIMs give preference for candidates having non engineer background.

Hope this helps. Thank You.

My 10th percetage is 87,12th is 90,graduation is 62. Am I eligible to get call from IIM A,B,C if I get 90-100 pecentile in CAT.

Sujata Tripathi 9th Oct, 2019

According to the official criteria given by the IIMs, the minimum graduation percentage required is 50% for General category and 45% for reserved category. So, strictly on the basis of that, you'll be eligible. However,satisfying the eligibility criteria is not a sure-shot assurance for admission. IIM A,B,C especially have a very high standard when it comes to taking admissions. So, try to keep your percentile above 97 and good luck.
