IIM Trichy has released the admission policy for PGP academic year 2016-18. This year, IIM Trichy plans an intake of 120 students. The admission process will have 2 steps, shortlisting on the basis of CAT 2015 scores followed by WAT and PI rounds and past academic records and work experience. Let us have a look at the IIM Trichy admission criteria in detail.


Shortlist Criteria for WAT and PI

The candidates will be shortlisted on the basis of the CAT 2015 scores. The following table brings to you the CAT 2015 cutoff according to sections and candidate categories.

Category of Candidate

Minimum CAT Percentiles for shortlisting, section wise

Quantitative Ability & Data Interpretation

Verbal Ability & Logical Reasoning






















IIM Trichy mentions, “The cut-off percentiles given in above table are indicative. The actual cut-off percentiles for 2016-18 batch may vary from those mentioned in the Table. IIM Trichy will decide the number of candidates to be called for the PI & WAT for each of the above categories.”


Last year, the CAT 2014 cutoff for IIM Trichy was same as 2016-18 batch. Although the CAT 2015 exam pattern has changed and the exam now has 3 sections instead of 2, it has not been reflected in the cutoff table. Hence, the sectional cutoff structure of IIM Trichy is ambiguous.

Shivika Tyagi 16th Feb, 2020
For getting a call from SP Jain, you must score around 95 percentile in Cat. Although you must set your target for 95+ only so that you surely get a call from them. And after that you have to perform really well in GD and PI process. SP jain gives benefit to students with strong profile and work experience. So, try to build your profile.
Hope it helps you. Good luck
