PGP Admission Policy 2018


PGP Admission Policy 2018

This document summarizes the approach of IIM Udaipur to prepare the admission list for its 8th PGP Batch (2018-20). The batch size is likely to be around 260. IIM Udaipur reserves the right to modify any part of this document including the various criteria and cut offs mentioned at any time till the actual admission process for the batch is completed.

The admission process of IIM Udaipur 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 all the 11 IIMs, namely, IIM Amritsar, IIM Bodhgaya, IIM Jammu, IIM Kashipur, IIM Raipur, IIM Ranchi, IIM Rohtak, IIM Sambalpur, IIM Sirmaur, IIM Trichy and IIM Udaipur.
  • Preparing the Merit List based on CAT score, WAT & PI score and Profile score as indicated in following tables.
1. Criteria for Short listing for 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:

Quantitative Aptitude Percentile Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning Percentile Verbal and Reading Comprehension Percentile Overall Percentile

IIM Udaipur's Admission Committee will decide the number of candidates who would be called for PA process on the basis of criteria prepared for each category. However, if the actual number of short-listed candidates were found to be less (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 (increased) to get the desired number of candidates.

The 11 IIMs (IIM Amritsar, IIM Bodhgaya, IIM Jammu, IIM Kashipur, IIM Raipur, IIM Ranchi, IIM Rohtak, IIM Sambalpur, IIM Sirmaur, IIM Trichy and IIM Udaipur) have decided to adopt a common admission process (CAP 2018 process) of WAT & PI to be coordinated this year by IIM Rohtak. The performance of the candidate in WAT & PI of CAP 2018 would be considered for preparing the merit list.

1. Criteria for Preparing the Merit List

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

  • CAT Score*: 53 %
  • Personal Appearance (WAT & PI): 21% Profile: 26%

*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 2017 score

b. Personal Appearance: IIM Udaipur 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 26% component for Profile:

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

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

  • 10th Standard : 2%
  • 12th Standard : 2%
  • Under Graduation : 4%
  • Post Graduation with 55% and above or CA/CS/ICWA : 2%

The following would be the basis for scoring candidates in respect of their academic profiles:
