IIM Ranchi Admission Criteria 2019 - Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Ranchi has announced the admission criteria for its Post-Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) Programme for the academic year 2019-21. The performance in Common Admission Test (CAT) 2018, Personal Interview and candidate's Profile which includes Past Academic Performance, Work Experience and Diversity, have got an equal weightage of 30 per cent each in the final merit list. Also, performance in Written Ability Test (WAT) has been given 10 per cent weightage in the final selection list. Like most of the IIMs, IIM Ranchi considers CAT score, PI, WAT and profile before offering the admission to a candidate. However, CAT score is just the short-listing criteria. In comparison to last year, the institute has increased CAT cutoff for the General category candidates by five points. The WAT and PI process for final selection followed by IIM Ranchi will be common for some other IIMs namely IIM Bodh Gaya, IIM Amritsar, IIM Udaipur, IIM Trichy, IIM Sambalpur, IIM Kashipur, IIM Raipur and IIM Rohtak. Let’s have a look at the detailed IIM Ranchi admission criteria 2019 in detail.
