IIM Admission Criteria


IIM Admission Criteria

You can read below the approach of IIM Udaipur to prepare the admission list for its 9th MBA Batch (2019-21). The batch size is likely to be around 260. IIM Udaipur reserves the right to modify any part of this policy including the IIM selection criteria for the Institute and cutoffs mentioned at any time till the actual IIM admission procedure for the batch is completed.

The IIM admission process for the Institute consists of:

  • CAT Examination
  • Short listing candidates for Personal Appearance (PA) process.
  • Conducting the PA process. PA process is composed of Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI). The PA process will be common to IIMs which are participating in the Common Admission Process (CAP).
  • Preparing the Merit List based on CAT score, WAT & PI score and Profile score as indicated in following tables.
1. IIM Selection Criteria for Short listing to PA (WAT & PI) process

The cut-off percentile marks for eligibility to PA process in the three sections and the total CAT percentile for different categories of students are given below:

Percentile Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension Percentile Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning Percentile Quantitative Ability Overall Percentile

IIM Udaipur Admission Committee will decide the MBA program requirements for the Institute and the final number of candidates who would be called for the PA process on the basis of criteria prepared for each category. However, if the actual number of short-listed candidates is found to be less (or more) than the required number of candidates to be called for WAT & PI category-wise, then the overall as well as section-wise minimum score, would be reduced (or increased) to get the desired number of candidates.

The IIMs who are participating in the CAP have decided to adopt a common admission process (CAP 2019 process) of WAT & PI to be coordinated this year by IIM Ranchi. The scores obtained by the candidate in WAT & PI of CAP 2019 would be considered for preparing the merit list

2. IIM Selection Criteria for Preparing the Merit List

The criteria for preparing the merit list will be as follows :

  • CAT Score*: 55%
  • Personal Appearance (WAT & PI): 21%
  • Profile: 24%

*CAT Score of the candidate divided by Maximum CAT Score among candidates who have applied to IIMU and attended WAT & PI. It is clarified that the CAT Score would be used and not the CAT Percentile.

a. CAT Score: IIM Udaipur will use CAT 2018 score

b. Personal Appearance: IIM admission criteria of the Institute will consider the following weights :

  • Written Ability Test (WAT): 6%
  • Personal Interview (PI): 15%

Candidates who do not obtain certain minimum scores in the WAT & PI will not be considered for the merit list. The minimum scores will be decided by IIM Udaipur at its discretion.

c. Profile: The following will be the breakup of the 24% component for Profile:

  • Academic Profile: 10%
  • Work experience: 6%
  • Diversity: 8%

i. For Academic Profile, following will be the weights:

  • 10th Standard: 2%
  • 12th Standard: 2%
