The Indian Institutes of Management through their tough selection process selects the best lot of students for different coveted IIMs. Before broadly analyzing the IIM-Calcutta admission policy, let’s first look at the selection process of IIMs. 

The IIM Admission Process is a two-step process

Candidates are first shortlisted on the basis of the CAT cut-off percentiles, sectional as well as overall, along with past academic record and work experience. After the shortlist, the candidates are called for WAT- PI rounds conducted by each of the IIMs. The selection at this round is based on the performance at each stage of the round with assessment on past academic records, work experience, co-curricular activities and diversity factors (if applicable). Each parameter is assigned a particular weightage on the basis of which the final merit list is prepared. The parameters and their weights vary with each of the IIMs.

 

Criteria for short listing and final selection of candidates for 2017-2019 Batch by IIM Calcutta

 

A. Short-listing for Personal Interview (PI)

Candidates will be short listed on the basis of CAT 2016 score, past academic performance, and other criteria for the next round, which is personal interview.

 

Stage I: Candidates eligible to be considered for PI

At this stage the candidates must have minimum section wise and overall percentile in CAT 2016. Candidates securing the above mentioned minimum percentile in each category in CAT 2016 will only be considered for calculation of their composite score in Stage II (described below). Please note that the actual section-wise and overall percentile of a short-listed candidate may be much higher than the above mentioned minimum percentile as the short-listing for PI is done on the basis of a composite score. 

 

Stage II: Calculation of Composite Scores for Short-listing for PI stage

The Composite Score is calculated on the basis of CAT 2016 score, Class X and Class XII aggregate percentages, and gender diversity factor. Method of allotting points for Class X and Class XII percentages of marks based on aggregate scores is given in the table below:

 

Points for Class X and Class XII marks

The composite score is calculated basis of the table below. The composite cut-off score is used for short-listing the candidates for the PI stage in each category. The number of candidates short-listed for the PI stage would be the discretion of the institute and would depend on the batch size of 2017-19.

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
