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.
Step 1: IIM Ranchi Admission Criteria 2019 – Initial Shortlisting for WAT/PI Process
College Comparison based on Courses, Placement, Rank, Fee
In the first step, candidates will be shortlisted on the basis of their score in CAT exam. However, candidates need to score the required overall as well as sectional percentile in the exam set by the institute. Candidates who meet this criterion will move to the next rounds of the selection process i.e. WAT and PI.
Here is the section-wise and aggregate percentile cutoff for different categories in CAT 2018 for admissions to IIM Ranchi:
IIM Ranchi Cutoff for CAT 2018
*VARC – Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension
*DILR – Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning
*QA – Quantitative Analysis
There are chances that candidates who score the above-mentioned percentile in the exam may not get shortlisted as the figures are just indicative and actual CAT cutoff is expected to be close to the cut-off for previous years. For further processing, a combined shortlist will be prepared of all the shortlisted candidates of all IIMs participating in the Common Admission Process (CAP). Candidates will be ranked for different categories as per the score mentioned in the table.
Step 2: IIM Ranchi Admission Criteria 2019 – WAT and PI Process
The second step of the admission process will be conducted at five different centres – New Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata and Mumbai. The exact dates for the same would be communicated to shortlisted candidates in due course.
Step 3: IIM Ranchi Admission Criteria 2019 – Final Admission 2019-21
Post WAT and PI process, admission offers would be made on the basis of a merit list. This Consolidated Merit List (CML) would be prepared on the basis of the following components and their corresponding weights. The weightage given to each component is same as last year.
