Hi iam having dyslexia, and government hospital certificate for learning disability, can I get pwd (person with disabilities) quota in iim for mba

Harshita Gupta 18th Jan, 2020
Hey,

IIM has given the criteria for PwD under the " Rights of person with Disabilities Act 2006" and according to it, a person must not have disabilities less than 40% , which means disability should be 40% affective.
The categories of disabilities considered under the Act are as follows:
  • Blindness and low vision.
  • Deaf and hard of hearing.
  • locomotor disability including cerebral palsy, leprosy cured, dwarfism, acid attack victims and muscular dystrophy.
  • autism, intellectual disability, specific learning disability and mental illness.
And few others. So according to the last point mentioned above, you are eligible and might get admission in pwd category if you meet the requirements of scores and cut-off and if you fulfill the criteria.

hope this helps!

Hey, i have 57% in both 10th and 12th and 81% in graduation. Any possibility of getting call from IIMB if i score 99%tile ?

KUNAL LANJEWAR 17th Jan, 2020

Hello,

Yes. You have a chance of getting a call from IIM Bangalore.

The eligibility criteria for getting selected by IIM Bangalore is :

  • Minimum 50% in 10 + 2 + Graduation
  • Required CAT percentile
  • Minimum 4 years work experience in respective field

The candidates who clear the above eligibility criteria are shortlisted and they are further sent for further shortlisting.

The further shortlisting is done on the basis of Personal Interview, Written Ability Test. The candidate clearing all the stages are finally selected for admission in IIM Bangalore.

You can receive a call, but you will face problems during shortlisting, as the percentage of 10th, 12th and graduation play a very important role in shortlisting.

Best Wishes.

Yashu Shrivastava 9th Jan, 2020

Hello

Your academics marks is very low,and that may affect on your chances of getting calls from some best colleges.Talking about the IIM Bangalore,sorry but you can't get call from IIM Bangalore because of your academics marks and also your CAT percentile does not meet the sufficient marks.The expected cut off of IIM Bangalore is 98+ percentile with good academics marks and also work experience also matters.

But,don't worry,if you want some good colleges,there are some colleges where academics marks does not matter much,you can check about those colleges here
