IIM Bangalore Selection Criteria For PGP 2014-16
Institute: Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore
After IIM Lucknow and IIM Calcutta announced its admission criteria, the admission criteria for IIM Bangalore are also out for the academic year 2014-16. IIM B will be normalizing your academic scores. The minimum cut for the first shortlist has been set as 90%ile.
IIMB believes that students who perform well in the academic program are typically those who have a consistently good academic record during their school, high school and graduation level, besides exhibiting sufficiently high aptitude as measured by the CAT. Therefore IIMB uses multiple parameters, namely academic performance in school, high school and graduation programs as well as candidates' scores in CAT to judge the suitability of candidates for the PGP program. Relevant work experience, if any, is also given weight in the selection.
IIM B would be considering the overall as well as sectional cut-off. The CAT 2013 cut-off criteria set by IIM is as follows:
Minimum Percentile Requirement for the first shortlist
For all candidates in the first shortlist the candidates' percentage scores in the 10th and 12th board exams will be adjusted by dividing each such score by the 90th percentile score obtained in that board. The database of 10th and 12th scores of all CAT applicants of the past two years is used for identifying the 90th percentile score for each 10th and 12th board for this purpose.
For all candidates in the first shortlist, the score/weight for work experience is calculated as:
Pre PI score for Work Experience
= 5x/36 if 0 < x < 36
= 5 if x >= 36
Where, x is the months of work experience up to September 2013, as captured in CAT application form.
Candidates with CA/ CS certifications are eligible for weight under professional course. No other professional course is eligible for weight under Professional course.
The maximum of the work experience score and the professional course score is considered for selection under a common weight of 10 for work experience or professional course.
The factors weight age is as follows:
Work Experience/ Professional Course
The work experience score will be multiplied by the quality of experience score. The quality of work experience score will be evaluated on a 5 point scale (0 - 0.5 -1 - 1.5 - 2) by each member of the panel during the interviews. The average quality of work experience score will be multiplied by the pre-PI work experience score and accordingly the
Work/professional experience component score (maximum score 5) used in Phase 1 will be revised in Phase 2 (maximum score 10)
The note content score (weight=7.5), note style score (weight=7.5), and the personal interview score (weight=20), after standardization across interview panels and sessions, will be added to the pre-PI total to arrive at the final aggregate score
Application through GMAT
Eligibility criteria: A candidate must have resided abroad for at least 18 months in the preceding three years (Jan 2011 to Dec 2013) and should not be/ have been in a position to appear for CAT2013. The GMAT code for IIMB PGP is Q9H-KK-49.
All candidates who have been recommended would be required to appear for a Personal Interview (PI) process, either in person or through remote video conferencing. The candidates appearing for the PI process in person would be interviewed along with the candidates using the CAT 2013 score, and the same PI process would be followed. For candidates appearing for the PI process through remote video conferencing would be required to submit their notes through email.
All candidates will be required to provide three confidential reference letters from their employers or faculty and this will also be used in the personal interview evaluation. For each of the three elements of evaluation during the PI process - Note Content, Note Style and Personal Interview - the average of the scores given by the interviewers will be considered.
The evaluating committee would again assess the performance of the candidates in the PI process and make a final offer. There would be no wait list and no fixed no. of seats for such candidates.

Questions related to IIM Bangalore
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.
i got 61.69%in 12th HSC,93.6% in 10th ,8.7 CGPA in BE,can i apply for cat and if got good percentile..can i get a call from iimb or iimc?
Usually MBA aspirant thinks that good CAT score is enough to get a call from IIM, but the reality is call from IIM does not only depend upon the CAT score but also depends upon the overall academic performance and WAT/GD rounds. Some IIM's give preference to work experience or UG streams so its totally upon them but only CAT score is not enough to get a call from them.
I hope this will help you.
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.

Do people who have less than 90 percent in 12th get admitted in IIM Bangalore? If anyone could please guide. Regards, Snehansh
Yes they have! What matters the most is your overall profile not one or two features of it. There is no bar that people with less than 90% marks can not be admitted. It only depends on how much you are able to impress them with your overall profile. Try to highlight your work experience if any. It will benefit immensely. Interviewers need to see that seal within you to excel.
