IIM Visakhapatnam has announced the admission criteria for PGP 2017-19 batch, which will be conducted in three phases. The first phase includes shortlisting candidates based on their CAT percentile. This year, although the CAT cutoffs have remained same as last year, the weightages assigned to other parameters have increased compared to that of last year. The shortlisted candidates have to appear for the Common Admission Process rounds. The following table brings to you the CAT 2016 cutoff for IIM Visakhapatnam shortlist.

IIM Visakhapatnam clarifies, “These cut-offs are not for admission offers whose scores could be much higher.”

 

Phase 2

 

In the second phase, IIM Visakhapatnam considers the past academic performances, namely Class 10th and 12th Board exams which are by dividing each such score by the 90th percentile score obtained in that board. The final scores of Bachelor’s Degree or professional degree are also considered. Chartered Accountancy, Cost Accounting, and Company Secretary certifications are eligible for professional degree.

 

The formula for calculating work experience of candidates is given as below:

 

Score for Work Experience = 8x/36 (if 0 < x < 36)

                                            = 8 (if x >= 36)

 

Where x is the months of work experience up to July 2016, as captured in CAT application form (and substantiated in the application to IIMV). 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. The work experience score (maximum 8 in the pre-PI stage) will be multiplied by the quality of work experience score on a 5 point scale (0.25 - 0.5 – 1 - 1.5 - 2) as given by interviewers in the PI process in Phase 2, to then arrive at a weighted work experience score.

 

The weightages assigned to the above mentioned parameters for shortlist are given in the table below.

Compared to the admission criteria of 2016, IIM Visakhapatnam has doubled the weightages of the above mentioned factors.

 

According to IIM Visakhapatnam, 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}]

 

Phase 3 – Final Selection

 

The final shortlisted candidates will have to fill up and submit a detailed application form including a statement of purpose, detailed marks of past academics, copies of marksheets and certificates, copies of work experience certificates (if applicable), certificate of disability (if applicable), scheduled caste / scheduled tribe / other backward class – non-creamy layer certificate (if applicable). Only those candidates submitting the detailed application form and requisite documents and certificates will be called for final selection rounds.

 

If the shortlisted candidates has appeared for WAT-PI rounds in any of the IIMs, namely, IIM Bangalore, IIM Calcutta, IIM Lucknow, IIM Indore, then they do not have to appear for PI WAT rounds at IIM Visakhapatnam. The institute will derive their PI WAT scores from the above mentioned IIMs. For candidates shortlisted by IIM Bangalore, their PI-WAT scores will be accepted by IIM Visakhapatnam. For the candidates appearing in the selection rounds of other IIMs, the average score of the PI-WAT rounds will be accepted.

 

The parameters and weightages for final selection are given in the table below.

The institute states, “Since IIMV follows a comprehensive multi-criteria process, it is able to identify many candidates who have an excellent academic record and work experience but who, while doing well enough in the CAT to be in the first shortlist, may have narrowly missed the high score that would have been required if CAT alone was the basis for admissions. 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.”

I got 92.06551 in jee mains.what rank i will get in obc cat

Devraj choudhary Student Expert 23rd Jan, 2020

Hii

Your general rank canbe calculated by the formula (100-92.06551)*8.69lakh/100

That equals 69000. But if the number of students appearing in april session increases than the 8.69 lakh will be replaced by the number in formula and your rank will change.  Estimation of obc rank is quiet difficult as we don't have number of obc candidates data. You can also use rank predictor

my younger brother got 98.3 percentile in 2020 jan general cat. mains exam can he get Top 10 NIT for CSE ?

Devraj choudhary Student Expert 23rd Jan, 2020

Hii

For his 98.3 percentile he won't be in top 10000 rank, and thus won't get CSE in top 10 NITs. But he may definitely get CSE in some IIITs or lower NITs. He may get ECE in average NITs, and can go for branch change after 1st year in college. Or even he can appear for jee mains once again and get better score.

All the best

my name is shivam Chavan i scored 70%in 10th and 78% in 12th and I belong to sc category. so if i score above 70 percentile in CAT, is there any chance for me to get call from IIM-A?

Sampriti Student Expert 23rd Jan, 2020
IIM Ahmedabad requires a minimum of 70 percentile in CAT for students falling in SC category with 60 percentile each in all the sections. But IIMs not only consider the CAT scores, it takes into account various other factors while giving a call. So considering your academic record you must score more than 80 percentile in order to get a call from IIM Ahmedabad.

Good Luck
