Sir can i do iimc course from ug..?

Deepanshi Verma Student Expert 28th Aug, 2019

At the moment, IIMC does not provide any UG courses. You need to be at least a graduate to take admission in IIMC.

IIMC is probably the best Institute in India. But Xavier's Institute of Communication and Asian School of Journalism are also not far behind and in fact are famous for its facilities, infrastructure and overall training


Hello, i got 79% in 10th grade, and 72% in 12th, and 80% in Bcom, and i am expecting a 98 percentile in CAT, can i get a call from any IIM?

Deepshikha Student Expert 30th Sep, 2019
Every IIM has different set of criteria for selection of the candidates. You need to be either exceptionally great in your academics or you need to be just that well in your extracurricular activities. But ultimate game changer is the CAT score.
Even if you your academic profile is not great,if you score above 97 percentile,you are likely to get a call from IIMs.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

10th : 10 CGPA. 12th : 96%. BA (Hons) English : 69%. What percentile will I require in CAT for getting shortlisted for IIMA/B/C?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 17th Aug, 2019
Dear Sonam, there are approximately 100 Institutions that accept CAT scores. This includes 20 IIMS as well. Selection of Candidates for Institutions accepting CAT scores depends upon the Institution you are interested in. The basic step is to check your CAT score and few Institutions conduct further rounds like Written Ability Test, Group Discussion and Personal Interview. The weightage will be given to both the procedures while selecting a Candidate. Candidates will mostly be shortlisted based on their CAT scores. The 20 IIMS and all the Participating Institutions will announce their Cut offs. The cut off is prepared after checking various factors. MBA aspirants will have to apply separately to all the Colleges that accept CAT scores. While CAT score remains the main criteria for selection, IIMs also consider other factors like previous academic performance, work experience, gender and Academic diversity.

  • IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Calcutta and IIM Bangalore conduct their admission process separately.

  • The newly established IIMs follow a Common Admission Process which is also called CAP. The shortlisted candidates will have to appear for a Common Written Ability Test and Personal Interview Rounds. A separate Institute wise merit list will be prepared and this merit list will be declared based on individual admission and selection criteria.

  • IIM Sirmaur, IIM Jammu, IIM Nagpur will release their own merit list according to the CAT score or percentile and profile of the Candidate. There are no further rounds for these Institutions.

  • The B schools which do not fall under IIMs will conduct their own selection process. The process of selection such as Group Discussion, Written Ability Test and Personal Interview are conducted at the Institution's discretion.

  • IMT Ghaziabad, MICA conduct group activity or group exercise instead of group discussion. Some Institutioms also conduct Written Ability Test and Personal Interviews after Group Discussion.

Required percentiles:

  • FMS, Delhi needs 95 percentile.
  • IIM Shillong: 92 percentile
  • NITIE Mumbai: 91 percentile
  • IIM Bangalore, IIM Calcutta, IIM Lucknow, IIM Indore, IIM Kozhikode, IIM Tiruchirapalli, MDI Gurgaon, IIM Udaipur, IIM Rohtak, IIM Ranchi, IIM Kashipur, IIM Raipur, IMT Ghaziabad, IMI New Delhi, XIM Bhubaneshwar and New IIMS need 90 percentile
