MDI Gurgaon conducted a welcome event at its campus from June 17 to 23 for the Post Graduate Programmes namely, PGP in Management, Human Resource Management and International Management of batch 2015- 17. The event presented a glimpse of life at MDI and students career graph thereafter.   

The students were welcomed by Prof. C P Shrimali, the Director of MDI through an lecture on the scope of learnings at MDI. He said, “Transformation of lifestyle to that of a B-school can often be overwhelming and cumbersome for the new students. Our post graduate programmes are rigorous with no scope for slippages. For many students, the transformation from a job to a full-time hostel life with impromptu sessions can be discomforting at first. Thus, we planned this week-long induction programme with a motive to introduce the students to life at MDI, and easing them into a change of lifestyle. This is to bring them up to a platform from where they can effortlessly manage the commitment and hard work demanded by the curriculum of their respective programs.”

During the induction ceremony, leaders from the corporate world Shri P. Dwarakanath (Director - Group Human Capital MAX India Limited), Mr. Sameer Nagpal (MD &CEO- Shalimar Paints), Mr. Nitesh Ahuja (MD, MITG Group), Col. S.P. Wahi (former chairman, ONGC), Mr. Pravin Subba (VP -HR & Admin, Micromax), Mr. Ashu Malhotra (HR Head, Jabong) and Mr. Sreedhar Prasad (Partner, KPMG) introduced the future managers to the dynamic environment of India.

 

The rest of the week involved an introduction to the academic and extra-curricular life at MDI. As a part of this activity, students were made familiar with the foundations of various courses with sessions on Economics, Accounting, Quantitative Methods, Case-based study approach, and so on. Students were also introduced to the various clubs, committees and SIGs that they can be a part of at MDI.

Sharing his experience, Govinda Bhuwalka, a fresher from the new batch of MDI said, “The induction was very welcoming. Right from the time the admission offers were made, the senior students have been of great help which gave me a feel of the values and attitude of MDI. The induction programme guided us to inculcate skills to become good managers and entrepreneurs in future. We were provided insightful details about the 24x7 campus of MDI and the importance of learning and development of self and peers in this evolving global environment.”

Rehan Alam Student Expert 4th Nov, 2019

Dear aspirant,

Yes you can very well expect a call from all the IIMs except for IIM-A/B/C at 99.30 percentile. Certainly you can get a call from MDI also. However, if you are expecting a call from one of the top 3-4 IIMs, then you have to score a minimum of 99.50 percentile.

Hope this helps. Thank you.

My 10th score is 9.6 cgpa &12th score is 93.5% and college cgpa is by far 8. I want to get admissn in MDI ggn, how mch shd I score in CAT?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 21st Aug, 2019

Dear Manavi, the basic eligibility criteria remains 50% Aggregate in Graduation for General Category and 45% for Reserved Categories.For admision to MDI Gurgaon, the following Composite score calculation method is used:


  • CAT Weightage: 60%
  • Group Discussion, Personal Interview and WAT: 20%
  • 10th, 12th, Graduation, Work Experience, Academic diversity: 20%


Now coming to CAT weightage, now that CAT is conducted at 2 different slots, IIM Kozikhode follows a unique method of calculating the score.  IIM Kozikhode will normalise the CAT scores using percentile equivalence. Adjustment of location and scale differences of score distributions across different norms and then scores will be normalised. These scores will be then converted into percentiles for shortlisting and selection purposes. And B Schools have been giving sectional preference to CAT scores to calculate CAT score. While FMS gives importance to VARC section, all other major IIMs give weightage to QA section. Going by the previous year cut offs, to get into MDI, your CAT score should be nothing less than 93-95%. The reason for their higher cut offs can be justified by their placement opportunities. 138 PPOs were offered to MDI students by 106 participating recruiters. The average salary was 20.13 lakhs and the highest domestic salary was 40.79 lakhs. A candidate with an excellent academic track, has all eligibility criteria points, good communication skills and analytical skills and possesses the ability to take up challenges is called an ideal Candidate. And with your academic track, you can make it to MDI, if you can score a percentile of atleast 95. Last year 55% of CAT score is given weightage. And for an example we shall give you an idea of score for each section of CAT exam and its overal weightage so as to let you prepare accordingly.



IIM                    QA         DLR         VARC         Overall

Ahmedabad                65           65              65               70

Bangalore                   70           70              70               75

Calcutta                       65           65              65              70

Indore                           70          70              70              80

Lucknow                      77           77              77              82


The following formulae are used to calculate your 10th, 12th and Graduation scores:


  • 10th Standard: 36*[Z Candidate-Z min/Z max- Z min]


  • 12th Standard: 40*[Z Candidate-Z min/Z max- Z min]


  • CAT 2019 score: 20*[Candidate's overall score /Highest CAT score]


  • Gender Diversity Factor: = 4 for female applicants


=0 for other applicants



  • Composite score= sum of the above scores


Remember, that there is no PASS or FAIL score in CAT. Its a measure of your performance among other applicants. Better the percentile, fairer the chance of getting into Top B schools. For example, if your score is 90 percentile, it means you did better than 90 percent of the Candidates who applied. Now cracking CAT and faring better than a certain percent of Candidates totally depends on how you prepare.

Depending on your Category, your CAT percentiles should be near to these numbers:

General Category: 95+

OBC-NCL: 85+

SC: 65+

ST: 55+
