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.”
