The shortlisting criteria and the process with weightage components adopted by the IIMs can give ample idea how the IIMs call the candidates and announce shortlist for interview. The criteria being adopted by IIMs to announce the shortlist for final selection round 2020 is not much different than that was followed last year. Here is the IIMs shortlisting criteria adopted by IIMs for admission process:

IIMs shortlist focus more on student quality which is not just measured only by CAT 2019 exam scores. As such ‘profile’ plays an important role and therefore is considered for improving diversity in IIM Class rooms. Accordingly IIM Shortlisting criteria focus mainly on following 3 Parameters:

  • CAT 2019 Exam Scores: Each IIM shortlisting criteria specify its minimum required sectional as well as overall percentile score in the range of 70 to 95 percentile
  • Academic Profile & Diversity: IIMs shortlisting criteria award weightage to excellent academic record till graduation and to the candidates coming from Non-Engineering back ground. Female candidates are also awarded weightage to promote gender diversity in IIM class rooms
  • Work Experience: In the IIMs shortlisting criteria to become eligible for GD-PI-WAT round, if a candidate has a work experience between 2 and 3 years in a supervisory cadre, good weightage in the range of 5 to 10 percent is awarded in IIMs shortlisting process.     Read more on IIMs Shortlisting criteria
