Which certificate of ews is needed in iim indore ipm? The income and assets certificate or the ews caste certificate?
I am providing you the list of required documents at the time of councelling, here you go-
1. Class 10th marksheet and documents
2. Class 12th marksheet and documents
3. Graduation marksheet and certificate
4. IIM Interview Call letter
5. CAT Scorecard
6. Reservation category Certificates
In your case, you're an EWS Candidate. So you have to submit you caste and EWS Certificate both. Now, since it is required that Family annual income must not exceed INR 800000, it would be good for you if you carry your or your father's Income Certificate as well. So that you have all the required time.
Now coming to the Assets Certificate, it is nowhere in the list of required documents but if you have this Certificate then carry this too but make sure the details of the properties doesn't exceed the limitation set by the EWS Certificate issuing authority. If you don't have Asset Certificate then don't worry. It's not a big thing.
I hope you're aware of the fact that EWS Certificate comes with a validity period of one year. So don't submit the expired Certificate, otherwise you will be considered as a General category candidate.

Two sections might be clear for you to crack if you have prepared well in your class 12th.
You just need to focus more on your reasoning section. In this two weeks I will suggest you to focus on that section.
Practice last year question papers and give mocks as much as possible.
If you truly believe in yourself you can do it. Miracles do happen but you need to trust yourself with the hard work.
