what is cut off of iim rohtak for OBC

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 29th Nov, 2019

You are expected to have a sectional cut off percentile of 75 in each of QA, DILR and VARC and an overall percentile of 90%. IIM Rohtak doesn't participate in CAP. Rather, it has its own selection criteria based on WAT and PI rounds. The weightage criteria look as follows:

CAT: 50%

WAT/PI: 30%

Profile: 20%

The individual CAT sectional percentile and the overall percentile may be relaxed if the actual no.of candidates shorltisted are less than the required no.of Candidates to be called for WAT and PI in one or more Categories. IIM Rohtak will have 240 students for 2020 batch. The admission process for it will be based on CAT 2019 score PI and WAT and Final Admission offer.

IPM entrance test has 2 sections : Section 1 : Quantitative Ability and Section 2 : Verbal Ability.

The questions are based on mental aptitude and one’s hold over the English language. You can practise such questions from a lot of sources.

However, this can help you. Have a look : IIM Indore IPM Sample Paper

An IPM friend of mine once told me that he appeared for IPM test because he wanted to practise the VARC section for BITSAT and later decided to join IIM Indore. So, the aptitude test isn’t very IIM I specific.

Hope this helps !

All the best.
