Computation of percentages at Bachelor’s level

Bachelor’s Degree completed

The percentage of marks obtained by the candidate in the graduation (bachelor’s degree) would be calculated based on the practice followed by the university/institution from where the candidate has obtained the degree. In case a candidate is granted grades/CGPA instead of marks, the conversion of grades/CGPA to percentage of marks would be based on the procedure certified by the university/ institution from where graduation has been obtained. In case the university/ institution does not have any way for converting CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by dividing the candidate’s CGPA by the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying the result with 100.

Bachelor’s Degree not completed

The aggregate percentage of marks secured in all the semester/year at the time of filling in the CAT application form will only be considered for granting points.

Dual Degree

The percentage of marks to be considered will be as described in the degree certificate.

Do the IIM interview panel recognize certificates from MOOC like edx ?

Shivam bhardwaj Student Expert 24th Oct, 2019

Hello Ninad,

During the interview, the members of panel wants to know about you, and how much passionately you are doing things in your life. They go through your academic profile as well. If you have some extra and interesting things to show it will definitely attract the panel. And they are bound to ask questions related to that course. If you are able to give answers, you will surely get benefitted. But stating a certificate doesn't means marks always. Your marks may get deduce also, so be careful.

Hope this will be helpful.

Good luck
