IIM fee structure and seats - If your dream B-school is one of the IIMs, it’s not just the Common Admission Test (CAT), Written Ability Test (WAT), Personal Interview (PI) or Group Discussion (GD) that you have to deal with. You also have to keep in mind that studying at one of the 20 IIMs comes with a cost that can dig a deep hole either in your pocket or your parents’ pocket. And with the recent hike in the fee by many IIMs, the management education with IIM tag is going to cost even more. Although there are loan facilities available to pay the fee, you need to check whether it’s going with your financial condition or not. Hence, while planning for MBA admission, MBA aspirants seek information on IIM fee structure and seats. CAT toppers who have been shortlisted by the older IIMs including IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore, IIM Calcutta, IIM Lucknow, IIM Kozhikode, and IIM Indore, can expect a good ROI (Return on Investment) but it may not be the same with newer IIMs.

IIM Fee structure and seats

Few IIMs have either increased the fees or have processed the increase. MBA candidates had to pay around 5-17 per cent more for the 2018-20 batch. Inflationary pressure and high operational cost including infrastructure cost and faculty salaries are the main reasons cited behind the fee hike by the officials of IIMs. Candidates paid Rs. 80,000-2 lakh more for their MBAs in the academic year 2018-20. IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Calcutta, IIM Bangalore, IIM Ranchi, IIM Trichy, IIM Indore, IIM Rohtak, and IIM Amritsar have already announced the fee hike.

IIM Admission Process

IIMs will conduct admission on the basis of CAT scores. After the declaration of CAT result, candidates fulfilling the CAT cutoff of IIMs are shortlisted for the further rounds of the selection procedure. For the final merit list generation, each IIM has different parameters and criteria.

The parameters considered for final selection are CAT score, performance in GD/WAT-PI, past academic records, work experience and academic & gender diversity factors. The weightage assigned varies from IIM to IIM.

The new IIMs (established after 2010) conduct Common Admission Process (CAP) which consists of WAT and PI. For 2018, IIM Rohtak was conducting the CAP for nine new IIMs out of 13. IIM Rohtak began the WAT and PI rounds for shortlisted candidates in mid-February and continued the process till early March.

Careers360 will update the information related to IIM fee structure and number of seats in case any further change is announced.

when can we give CAT exams?? when should we start preparations for CAT exams??

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 21st Jan, 2020
Arpita, CAT exam is usually held every year tentatively in the month of November and the results are announced in the month of January. With all the 20 IIMs conducting their admissions based on CAT score, no time is early for CAT preparation. Unless you score 95 percentile and above, it is difficult for admission in IIMs. CAT is an online examination of 3 hours duration.The questions in the exam will be of MCQ and TITA type totaling 100 questions. MCQ are multiple choice questions, for which candidates get multiple answer choices. Each Question has 3 marks and a wrong answer takes away 1 mark. However Type in the Answer questions are exempted from Negative Marking.

CAT exam paper can be Categorised into 3 parts:

Quantitative Ability

Sunil Kumar singh 21st Jan, 2020

Hi dear,

You have got 85.4059364 percentile in JEE main that means your rank should be 126875. This rank can increase in number of student in april month will increase. You can also calculate your rank as

Rank=(100-your percentile)×869010÷100

With this rank you have very low chance to get any NITs as you belong from general category. You can predict your college here

Which is the best academy to take cat coaching in India, both online and offline...

Sampriti Student Expert 21st Jan, 2020
You can join either TIME or Carrer Launcher. Both of them are equally good in terms of faculty and study materials. IMS is also pretty good and comes right after these two. All of them have good success rate. All of them usually charge above 40000 as the course fee.

But if you don't want to invest such a huge amount of money you can study from various books available in market like Arun Sharma and Sarvesh Verma for quantitative aptitude and magazines like The Economist and TIME and TOI newspaper for the English portion. Along with that do buy the mock test series from the above Institutes which will give you a good knowledge of all the kinds of questions generally asked in CAT,XAT or other exams.

All the very best
