IIM Ahmedabad PGP batch 2016-18; 11% rise in non-engineer students
The Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad marked an increase of female and non-engineer students in its current batch of Post Graduate Programme 2016-18. The batch consists of 20% non-engineers and 21% women students, whereas, the previous batch (2015-17) there were 9% of non-engineers and 14% female students. The increase in the percentage reflects a significant diversity in the students profiles compared to last years.
Professor Ashish Nanda, Director, IIMA, said, “IIMA’s vision is that we educate leaders of enterprises. We are continually assessing our admissions process critically to ensure we are selecting candidates best positioned to be leaders of enterprises. We are delighted that in selecting potential leaders who can contribute to their own and their colleagues’ growth and learning, we have also achieved a diverse mix in the entering class.”
According to IIM Ahmedabad, the increase in diversity of students can be correlated to some changes in the admission process introduced by the Institute in 2014-16. In addition to short-listing candidates for interviews based on CAT scores, the Institute is admitting top candidates from seven broad academic disciplines.
Professor T. Bandyopadhyay, former Chairman, PGP Admissions, who led the admissions process for the 2016-18 batch, said, “Diversity in the student population helps in enriching the learning process by bringing in diverse perspectives in the class-room discussion. It appears we are on the right track.”

Questions related to IIM Ahmedabad
What should I fill in "year of passing" in 12th field in CAT form 2020 if I passed 12th in 2016 and appeared for Improvement in all subjects in 2017 ? Also I have improved my percentage so which marks should I enter? Please Help. Remember I passed all my subjects in 2016.
It is a tricky situation but the answer is simple. You passed the senior secondary exam in the year of 2016 so you should mention 2016 as the year of passing. You are saying that you secured more percentage in improvement, then you can mention the improved grades in the form. But at the time of interviews, you will have to carry both the marksheets . Only The one with the more percentage , shall be considered valid. Which is the improved one in your case.
And lastly, dont worry . This does not affect the admission criteria .As long as you have cracked the entrance exam and proved your caliber for the respective exam, you are pretty much good to go.
63/64/62 percentage in 10th/12th/graduation. category sc currently working as bank clerk in sbi total work experience to date is 26 months. what cat score is needed to get a call from IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore and Calcutta.
Sorry for that but your academics are pretty low. But belonging to a SC category might fetch you a chance to get a call from IIM A, B, C. All IIMs have different parameters and the weightage of these parameters also differs from college to college.
I will advise you to personally visit the official website of these college and look for the last year cut offs as well as their criteria of admission. Scoring above 97% percentile will be a pretty decent score and can help you to some extent in getting a call from either of the college.
All the very best.

can i get admission after 12 directly? and if not can i get admission in between from iim indore to iim ahmedabad by giving CAT say after 3 yrs in indore?
No you can't get direct admission after completing your 12th. For admission into IIM Indore after 12 th you need to appear for the IPM exam which is a five year integrated program conducted by IIM INDORE every year. After qualifying for the exam you can take admission if got selected in the final merit list. The IIM indore now offers a 'defer offer ' to students that allows them to exit the program after 3 rd year with a BA degree in hand. After that you can appear for CAT exam to get admission into other top B Schools including IIM Ahmedabad. Your seat will be reserved in IIM Indore for the two consecutive year that will allow your direct admission to PGP program to complete your last two years in case if you want to.
Hope that helps.
