IIM Lucknow has released the admission criteria for the post graduate programme in management (PGP) 2017-19. The CAT cutoff under different category remains same as that of last years; however, the component score weightage of different factors for shortlisting has increased to double.

Similarly, the composite scores of class XII, graduation, work- experience, and diversity factors for PGP have also increased.  The overall shortlisting process remains a two-step process, including a written ability test (WAT) and a personal interview (PI).
