IIM Visakhapatnam is the 19th IIM and 6th among the new IIMs to announce the admission criteria for the first session starting from September 2015. The official website has been launched by IIM Bangalore, the mentor institute for this IIM. The admission criteria and FAQs have been announced as well.
As per the official website, IIM Visakhapatnam uses multiple parameters for admission, namely, academic performance in 10th standard exam, 12th standard exam and Bachelor’s Degree exam along with CAT 2014 performance. Relevant work experience is also given weightage in the admission procedure.
The following table brings to you the detailed CAT 2014 cutoff.
Section 1 (QA & DI)
Section 2 (VA & LR)
Candidates who had applied for IIM in Andhra Pradesh during CAT 2014 application who also fulfill the above criteria would be sent email from IIM Visakhapatnam in case they are shortlisted. They have to confirm the admission by clicking on the link provided below and in the email within stipulated date.
For all Qualified Confirmed Candidates, the score/weight for work experience is calculated as:
Score for Work Experience = 10x/36 (if 0 < x < 36) = 10 (if x >= 36)
Here x is the months of work experience up to September 2014, as captured in CAT application form. This implies that the score will peak at 36 months work experience and will remain at that level for candidates with work experience exceeding 36 months.
For all Qualified Confirmed Candidates, the maximum of the work experience score and the professional course score is considered for selection under a common weight of 10 for work experience or professional course – since both provide professional work experience relevant to a management programme.
The final selection will be made on the basis of the following formula:
CAT = 20, 10th board = 15, 12th board = 10, Bachelors = 15
How to check Admission Status

Yes you for sure can but the amount of hard work you will have to put in will be more. The maths/quants part is pretty basic but is very tricky so it is tricks which you need to understand and apply.
CAT is an exam which tests your practicality and not how much you can learn by rote learning. You can start off by appearing for a mock test conducted free online and assess your performance that'll help you see and judge the areas you need improvement in and then decide if you need coaching or you can go on by yourself. You can either go for self study or Prepare with a tutor. For english prep. You can start off with Word Power Made easy, do this book twice, don't rush but read it and learn for 30-45 mins everyday. For Quants and LR-Di Arun sharma. Giving a mock a week and analyzing your strengths and weakness in terms of topics, score, percentile score and the time you are spending per question is really important.
Do take mocks religiously and you'll see how much it can affect your preparation in a positive manner.
