The placement process at IIM Ahmedabad was conducted in two stages. The first was the laterals process where firms interviewed students with work experience and offered them mid-level managerial positions. The second stage was the final placement process where firms were grouped into cohorts based on the profile offered, and groups of cohorts were invited to campus across different clusters. As in previous years, students were provided the flexibility of making a “dream” application to any firm of their choice in a subsequent cluster even with an offer in hand. This gave students the flexibility and choice to build careers in sectors of their preference.

Hi iam having dyslexia, and government hospital certificate for learning disability, can I get pwd (person with disabilities) quota in iim for mba

Harshita Gupta 18th Jan, 2020
Hey,

IIM has given the criteria for PwD under the " Rights of person with Disabilities Act 2006" and according to it, a person must not have disabilities less than 40% , which means disability should be 40% affective.
The categories of disabilities considered under the Act are as follows:
  • Blindness and low vision.
  • Deaf and hard of hearing.
  • locomotor disability including cerebral palsy, leprosy cured, dwarfism, acid attack victims and muscular dystrophy.
  • autism, intellectual disability, specific learning disability and mental illness.
And few others. So according to the last point mentioned above, you are eligible and might get admission in pwd category if you meet the requirements of scores and cut-off and if you fulfill the criteria.

hope this helps!

I am a chartered accountant and belonging to non creamy obc layer . what percetile should I get to get a call from iim Ahmedabad

Sampriti Student Expert 17th Jan, 2020
For OBC candidates the minimum overall percentile required in CAT is 75 with the sectional cutoffs being 65 in each section. But you should score 80-85 percentile in order to be on the safer side as IIMs do a very rigorous shortlisting based on the profile, candidate's CAT percentile and extra curricular achievements.

All the very best

10th - 10 CGPA , 12th - 78% , Grad- 80% . If i get 99 percentile in CAT 2020 will i be able to get into top B-schools. PS- I am a fresher

Yashu Shrivastava 11th Jan, 2020

Hello Vivek

As you mentioned your academics score and it is good but at 99 percentile in CAT,you have a lot more chance to get calls from top IIMs like IIM Ahmedabad,IIM Bangalore,IIM Calcutta,IIM Lucknow and IIM Indore.But there is one drawback that you are fresher and you dont have any previous job background which can be a problem for you.So,yes you will surely get call from top IIMs at 99 percentile because it is very good marks.

Hope This Helps

Best Of Luck!!
