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.

IIMs shortlist candidates for the interview stage based on their own criteria, which may be independent of each other. The process may include Written Ability Test, Group Discussion, and Personal Interviews. Performance in the CAT examination is an important component in the admission process. IIMs may additionally use other factors such as the previous academic performance of the candidates, relevant work experience, gender and academic diversity and other similar inputs in shortlisting and ranking of candidates at various stages of the admission process. The processes, academic cut-offs and the weights allocated to the evaluation parameters may vary across IIMs. Now based on your Category, to be shortlisted for an IIM, you should score atleast 85 and more percentile.
Now the IIMs part has been cleared, you need to decide one among MBA in India via CAT or go abroad for higher studies. You cannot be double minded on this. You know your strengths and capabilities and so this should be completely your call.
