IIM Ahmedabad Admission Criteria (2013-15)

Admission/Selection Process

The selection of candidates for admission to the 2013-15 batch of the PGP at IIM Ahmedabad is a two-step process.

In the first step, candidates are short-listed for personal interviews from among candidates who have a valid CAT/GMAT score* who have applied for the programme and who satisfy the eligibility criteria for the programme. An overseas category candidate who applies with a GMAT score instead of a CAT score should have a total scaled score of at least 700.

A candidate's prior academic record is also used in the short-listing process.

Short listing Criterion:

70% weightage is given to the CAT/GMAT score and 30% weightage is given to the Application Rating Score.

For bachelorís degree, marks obtained in all the subjects as mentioned in the mark-sheet in all the years will be taken into account.If you have a 5 year integrated Master's degree, percentage of marks obtained in the first 3 years will be considered as bachelorís degree percentage and the percentage of marks for the remaining 2 years as Master's degree percentage. If you are in the final year of 5 year integrated Master's degree, the marks obtained in the first 3 years will be considered as bachelorís degree Not Completed percentage.

In the second step, after the completion of personal interviews of all candidates short-listed in the first step, candidates for admission to the 2012-14 batch of the PGP at IIM Ahmedabad are selected from among the candidates who have attended the personal interviews. In preparing this list, apart from performance in the personal interview, the CAT/GMAT score*, academic performance and achievements, extra-curricular activities, and post-degree work experience are also taken into consideration.

Selection Criterion:

70% weightage is given to Personal Interview Score and 30% weightage is given to the CAT/GMAT Score. (Note: The Personal Interview Score is based on the following: performance in the personal interview, academic performance and achievements, extra-curricular activities and post-degree work experience.)

The following information is about the admission process followed by IIMA for its PGP subsequent to CAT. It is therefore, important for the candidates to read them carefully.
  1. Performance in CAT is an important input in the admission process. Candidates should note that it is important to perform well in each section of the test. In addition to the performance in CAT, IIMA uses academic performance, relevant work experience and other similar inputs for ranking and short-listing candidates for personal interviews (see details given above).

  2. Please note that IIMA short-lists candidates for Personal Interviews (PI) independent of other IIMs. Hence it is possible to observe variations in the lists of candidates short-listed by different IIMs.

  3. Details of candidates short-listed will be made available on IIMA website (www.iimahd.ernet.in) in the second week of January 2013. Short-listed candidates would also be sent interview call letters by IIMA. No communication would be sent to applicants who are not short-listed for Personal Interview.

  4. After the Personal Interview round, admission offers are made by IIMA to successful candidates. The ranking and final selection is based on a diverse set of attributes which includes performance in CAT/GMAT, performance in Personal Interview, academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular achievements, work experience etc.

  5. Disclosure of information about the admission process is driven by concerns which at times conflict with each other. The IIMA would like the admission process to be transparent. At the same time, IIMA would wish to protect the privacy of individual candidates and confidentiality of the process to prevent abuse. Based on these considerations, the performance of an individual is not made available to any other person. Similarly, the performance of candidates in Personal Interview including assessment of attributes mentioned under paragraph 4 above is not disclosed to anyone to prevent exercise of undue pressure on the panelists participating in the admission/selection process. IIMA exercises its own discretion in disclosing weights assigned to diverse sets of attributes mentioned under paragraph 4 above. To ensure that the perceived lack of transparency does not in any way affect the candidates negatively, adequate care is taken in formation of panel, development of objective criteria for assessment, random allocation of candidates to a panel and other such measures.

  6. Candidates, who appeared in Personal Interview will be able to view whether they have been offered admission by IIMA during second week of April 2013 by visiting the IIMA website. Admission offer letter would be sent to all successful candidates. Candidates, who are offered admission, need to confirm their acceptance by completing all the required formalities by first/second week of May 2013. Some candidates may also be placed on the waiting list initially during second week of April 2013. Offers to candidates on the waiting list would depend upon the number of successful candidates accepting the offer made by IIMA.
NOTE: In the event of specific guidelines being issued by Government of India, IIMA reserves the right to, depending on the nature of the guidelines, continue with its personal interviews as stated above OR use an alternative selection procedure which may include calling for additional information from short-listed candidates, a supplementary test or any other suitable process/mechanism. Care will be taken to ensure that candidates are not put to undue inconvenience.

* CAT refers to CAT-2012
* GMAT refers to GMAT administered within the last 24 months as on 15 December 2012
