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.

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.
