Following is the eligibility criteria regarding age for IPMAT 2022 -
• General category candidates applying for IPMAT 2022 (IIM-Indore) must be born on or after August 01, 2002 (SC/ST/PwD category candidates have a relaxation of 5 years i.e. they must be born on or after August 01, 1997).

my son got merit rank of 87 in IPMAT indore ug program. is there any chance to get admission in iim Indore ug program
Cutoff depends on various factors like the total number of students who appeared, the difficulty level of the exam, marking scheme, a number of seats available, previous year cut-off, and the performance of the candidates.
The minimum cutoff for each section differs for every category.
IPMAT 2021 cutoff is expected to be higher as compared to last year.
For the general category, IPMAT cutoff for IIM Indore for Quantitative aptitute(SA) was 25, Quantitative Aptitude(MCQ) was 28 and for verbal ability was 72.
For NC OBC category for quantitative aptitude(SA) was 12, for Quantitative aptitude (MCQ) was 20 and for verbal ability was 38.
For SC category for Quantitative aptitude(SA) was 7, Quantitative aptitude (MCQ) was 12 and verbal ability was 32.
For ST category for Quantitative aptitude (SA) was 4, for Quantitative aptitude(MCQ) was 5 and for verbal ability was 16.
This year there might be slight changes in the cutoff and there won't be much difference.
Hope this will help, All the best.!!
Till what rank were the waitlisted students students selected in General,Obc,sc,st,Pwd categories in IPM indore 2020?
Hope you are doing well.
Every year, thousands of students seek for admission to the IIMs' MBA programmes, which are among the most prestigious in the world. Because the total number of seats available at all 20 IIMs is about 4000, not everyone is admitted. Once the initial list of chosen applicants is released, a second batch of selected students is held on standby in case any of the first group decides to decline their position. The seat is then given to the next most qualified applicant to fill it. The word "waitlist" refers to a list of students who are waiting for someone to voluntarily give up their place.
The IIM waitlist is mostly comprised of the amount of seats that have been promoted from the waitlist slab to the offer level. Students spend an inordinate amount of time for the waitlists of IIM Ahmedabad (IIMA), IIM Bangalore (IIMB), and IIM Calcutta (IIMC) to move in order for their prospects of admission to become more favourable. This has been seen year after year. Nonetheless, the newly formed and growing IIM waiting movement has recently attracted widespread notice.
The movement of the waitlist at IIMs and a few other top MBA schools is based on the category. General categories are subjected to very strict criteria, while the SC, ST, OBC and PWD categories are given considerable leeway in their requirements.
IIM Lucknow does not publish a queue for admission. Instead, they publish the merit list, which is more appropriate. In order to be guaranteed a spot on the merit list, a student must get the bare minimum of 12 out of 40 points in the preliminary examination.
Hope you got the answer to your question. Incase of any queries, feel free to question. Have a great day!
I completed my 12th std last year(89%) and currently in Bcom 1st yr and preparing for IPMAT. Should I keep (BBA) Symbiosis Nagpur as a backup option for IPMAT or continue Bcom from a Local (Not so Reputed) University and then prepare for CAT? Does graduation and gap years matter in CAT?
I would advise you to pursue BBA from SCMS Nagpur, incase you dont make it into IIM for the Integrated Program through IPMAT. SCMS Nagpur has good faculty, infrastructure, career and placement prospects, as well as since youre sure about pursuing a MBA in future, gives you the right preliminary environment to develop managerial skills and business mindset, perhaps a perfect Pre MBA Training in form of BBA before your MBA. You have a Good Academic Record with 89% in 12th, keep it up in your Graduation in BBA, followed by an excellent performance in CAT, MAT, NMAT, SNAP, XAT and Other MBA Entrances. Youll surely get into one of the NIRF Top 25 B Schools, which are really good.
