Hi iam having dyslexia, and government hospital certificate for learning disability, can I get pwd (person with disabilities) quota in iim for mba

Harshita Gupta 18th Jan, 2020

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!

Got 95% in 10th, 77.5% IN 12th, 7.72 CGPA(till 6th sem) , ****CAT 2019 Percentile : 82.26 ****[ VARC : 88.25 , DILR : 75.76 , QA: 72.56 ] can I expect call from IIMs (even baby IIMs) and if not what good college should I opt for MBA/PGDP for Academic Year 2020-22 ?

Manisha Gupta Expert 6th Jan, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

As a General category with 82.26 percentile, There are very less chance to get a call from any IIMs as for Baby IIMs you also require at least 90 percentile. The other colleges you can have the chance to get a call from

XIME Bangalore

MANAGE Hyderabad

Goa Institute of Management

LIBA Chennai

IFMR Chennai

University Business School, Panjab University, Chandigarh etc.

But as you know that CAT marks are not the only parameter involved in the selection procedure. After CAT exam every college in which you apply prepares a merit list to call students for next round of interview based on your aggregate score which comprises of many parameters such as CAT marks, 10th, 12th and graduation percentage, work experience etc. whose weight age varies for all different colleges. After the round of interview again a merit list is prepared which includes marks of your interview, GD and WSAT which along with CAT marks generally have the highest weightage.

You can also use CAT Pathfinder tool to know your further admission chances.


Good Luck!


Do the new and baby IIMs provide dual specialization? What is the criteria? Please explain.

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 31st Dec, 2019


They provide dual degree program to some selected students. For IIM calcutta:- the process is selection through CAT/GMAT score. Then going through other screening tests. If you qualify then  you will get an admission. The process will be same for all the IIMs but may be the cutoff mark will vary with respect to campus location.

New IIMs are worth joining as said by the students who joined and they had a good experience there and they adventured many new things. Fee structure and hostel facilities are also good.

For more details you can check the dual degree program in IIM webpage. For IIM calcutta :- https://www.iimcal.ac.in/programs/pgp/double-degree-program/double-degree-program

Hope it helps!


I am an average student (male) with a score of 81% in 10th, 76% in 12th and 62% in my engineering. With 1 year internship and 1 year industrial experience (core mechanical), is there any chance of getting an IIM call (new or baby IIMs) with a score of around 85-90 percentile in CAT? (category-obc)?

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 23rd Dec, 2019

Your past academics are just above average but you have an advantage of internship and job experience but still getting in IIM ABC  will be difficult because apart from good percentile must also need to have a good academics and if you want to get in new or baby IIMs still you need to get a percentile above 95 at least.Competieon is tough these days so you need raise some marks in order to get into a good B School.

Good Luck

Hi,i have 92,90,80 percentages in X,XII,UG respectively.can i have possibility of getting iim kashipur and iam from obc category.

Anupam Kumar Student Expert 2nd Oct, 2019

Hey there

Your academic marks are good and thus you'll have better chances of getting call from IIM Kashipur but getting admissions into iims not only depends on academic marks but it depends largely on your cat cat percentile and also the interview. So if you'll get good percentile in cat you'll surely get into iim Kashipur.

Good luck
