The Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode has announced its admission criteria for the Post Graduate Programme (PGP) batch of 2017-19. IIM K will follow a two-step admission procedure which includes shortlisting candidates through CAT scores and final selection on the basis of performance in Personal Interview (PI), Group Discussion (GD), and Writing Ability Test (WAT).

In the first step, candidates are short-listed for Personal Interview (PI) from among the candidates who have appeared in CAT 2016, fulfilled the eligibility criteria and have applied to the programme.

 

The minimum eligibility criteria adopted by IIM Kozhikode in the PGP admissions for the academic year 2017-2019 is given below:

Candidates fulfilling the above mentioned minimum eligibility criteria will be considered for subsequent stages. A two stage selection process is adopted for creating a shortlist from candidates meeting the minimum eligibility criteria.

Stage 1: Shortlisting for Personal Interview(PI), Group Discussion(GD) and Writing Ability Test(WAT) The first stage process applies to all eligible candidates (who appear for CAT 2016 and registered online for admission to IIMK) to determine the candidates to be called for personal interview (PI) and GD/WAT. A shortlist of candidates in each category will be created based on an Aggregate Index Score (AIS). The AIS is computed based on the performance in CAT 2016, Class XII and Bachelor’s degree marks and work experience. The weight of each component in the AIS is given as follows:

 

Aggregate Index Score Computation for Stage1 Shortlist

CAT 2015 Scores

75%

Class XII marks

7.5%

Graduation marks

7.5%

Work experience

5%

Academic/Gender Diversity Factor

Total

The short-listed candidates will have to register at IIMK website and complete the personal profile form online. Only those candidates who complete online registration at relevant stages will be considered for the subsequent process. The details of each component are given as follows:

 

1) CAT Index Score Performance in CAT is an important component in the admission process. Candidates are expected to perform well in each section of the test. Scaled Scores from the three sections (with equal weightages) of CAT 2016 will go into the computation of the CAT Index Score. CAT Index Score will carry a weight of 75%.

 

2) HSC/ Class XII/Equivalent/Diploma Score The percentage of marks obtained in HSC/Class XII/Equivalent/Diploma score would be the aggregate marks of all subjects that appear in the marks sheet or grade sheet irrespective of the board’s regulation. Any candidate with a score of 60% or below gets zero weightage. Any candidate with a score 81% or above gets a maximum of 7.5%. The weightage of 7.5% is proportionately allotted for any candidate with a score between 60% and 81%. A sample illustration of the marks awarded is given in the Annexure1.

 

3) Graduation Score Following are important points regarding the computation of Graduation Score:

  • For those who completed their Bachelor’s degree, the percentage of marks reported in their marks/grade sheet will be considered. If the Institute/University does not award the percentage of marks, it will be calculated on the basis of the marks obtained in all subjects listed in the mark sheet.

  • If the percentage of marks awarded by Institute/University does not take into account marks obtained in all the subjects as mentioned in the mark sheet(s) for all the years, the candidates must produce a certificate from the Principal/Head of the Department/Registrar/Director of the university/institution certifying details of the practice, at the time of the GD/WAT-PI, if shortlisted.

  • Percentage marks for candidates who have not completed Bachelor’s degree will be based on their available marks, certified by a Head of the institution. The Principal/Head of the Department/Registrar/Director of the university/institution has to certify that those are the latest available marks, without which the candidate becomes ineligible for the graduation index score.

  • Any candidate with graduation score of 60% or below gets zero weightage. Any candidate with a score 81% or above gets a maximum of 7.5%. The weightage of 7.5% is proportionately allotted for any candidate with a score between 60% and 81%. A sample illustration of the marks awarded is given in the Annexure1.

4) Work Experience Score Previous work/professional experience will carry a weight of up to 5% depending on the length of service as on January 31, 2017, as shown in Table 3. Only fulltime managerial work experience after graduation will be considered. Part time / project / Internship / articleship / pre-graduation work experience should not be entered and will not be counted as work experience. A candidate with a work experience of 6 months or above will be eligible for work experience score.

5) Diversity Score to ensure diversity, 5% marks will be awarded for both the gender diversity and academic diversity. However, a candidate is entitled to diversity score of 5% either from gender diversity or academic diversity. A candidate with any bachelor’s degree other than engineering/technology (B.Tech/BE) will be eligible for academic diversity score.

 

Stage 2: Final Shortlist: In the second stage, the short-listed candidates will have to appear for a GD/WAT followed by a Personal Interview (PI). The entire process will last for a half-day (morning or afternoon) session where the candidate will be writing a short essay and participate in group discussion followed by personal interview. The topic will be announced at the venue just before the GD/WAT. During the interview, the panel will evaluate the academic background, quality of work experience and other personal traits of each candidate.

 

After the conclusion of PI and GD/WAT, the final scores will be computed based on the performance in CAT 2016, PI, GD/WAT, and quality of professional experience. The components and maximum weightage for computing final scores after GD/WAT-PI are:

 

GD/WAT-PI Weightage

Component

Maximum Weight

Personal Interview

45%

CAT 2015

35%

GD/WAT

15%

Work experience quality

Category wise merit list will be prepared based on the final scores.
