Hi All, I want to apply for IIMs and I have a query regarding EWS certificate. I had applied for EWS but I got it in my regional format (marathi). The college I am applying is not accepting this format. And I am confused of how to apply the format that they want. Does that format has any name ? TIA

Hi,

Many institution give the format of the document required in their information brochure or at the official site. So visit the official site of CAT exam. There in the certificate section you will find the format of all the certificate required.

From there download the  EWS certificate. And after proper attestation submit it.

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!

Hi Bhushan,

You ahve secured a good percentile in CAT exam. But, you have to maintain a good record, Also to get into top IIMs, you have to secured more than 99.5+ percentile, then you will be definitely get a call for the top 3 IIMS, that is IIM Calcutta, IIM Bangalore and IIM Ahmedabad. As you have secured 97.1 percentile, you would get a call in 2nd round. But there are fair chance that you got call from new IIMs.

After the declaration of the result the merit list will be made  to call the candidate for the interview round.The merit list comprises of your CAT percentile, your graduation marks, your work experience, your 10th and 12th marks. Also, if you have secured more than 95+ percentile, then you get call from the others IIM for interview and Written Aptitude test. As you have If you have score above 97+ percentile i.e IIMS ,you will have a good probability of getting calls from old IIMs like IIM Lucknow, IIM Kozhikode, IIM Indore, IIM Shillong.
