IIM Visakhapatnam Admission Criteria 2019-21: IIM Visakhapatnam has released the admission criteria for the 2019-21 batch. As compared to last year, there has been no change in the IIM Visakhapatnam admission criteria 2019-21. The category-wise CAT cutoff for shortlisting candidates for the selection rounds is the same as last year. The admission process is divided into three phases. The first phase includes shortlisting candidates based on CAT percentile. Primarily, test takers obtaining a positive (greater than zero) score in all sections of CAT-2018 will only be considered. Moreover, those applicants whose percentile would match the sectional and overall CAT cutoff as per their category would be considered eligible for the next phases by IIM Visakhapatnam. The following table brings to you the IIM Visakhapatnam cutoff.

According to IIM Visakhapatnam, for all qualified confirmed candidates, normalisation or standardisation is based on the following formula. All standardisation is done with reference to the

qualifying first shortlist. Standardised score (truncated between 0 and weight (wt)) is computed from the raw score (val)as:

Max [0, min {wt, wt/2 + ((val-mean)/ sd) * wt/6}]

Shortlisted candidates will have to submit a detailed application including Statement of Purpose, past academic mark sheets and certificates of academic and work experience, and reservation category if applicable. Those submitting the detailed application by the specified deadline will be considered for the final selection process.

 

The conditions followed by IIM Visakhapatnam regarding participation in Writing Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI) are as follows:

  • Candidates who are shortlisted and interviewed by any one or more of the IIMs at Bangalore, Calcutta, Indore, Kozhikode, Lucknow (only for their PGP/PGPM programs) will not be required to appear for the personal interview of IIMV. The erstwhile WAT-PI scores will be considered by the institute.

  • Candidates who would be appearing for the WAT-PI rounds of any one of the mentioned IIMs, their average score would be considered by IIM Visakhapatnam for the final selection process.

  • Candidates not shortlisted by any of the above mentioned IIMs will have to participate in the selection procedure conducted by IIM Visakhapatnam.

According to IIM Visakhapatnam, the institute follows a multi-criteria process in order to ensure admission of candidates with strong academic and professional background. Hence candidates with a consistent high academic performance will be preferred over others even if their CAT score is a bit less. “Such candidates effectively replace candidates who have only a high CAT score but score poorly in terms of their past academic record and work experience. IIMV emphasises consistent and high performance in past academics,” states the B-School.

 IIM Visakhapatnam has the right to change the admission criteria for PGP 2019-21 before the declaration of CAT 2018 results.
