  • 8.1.2 For the candidates graduated in the AY year 2020 or after: Completed Bachelor’s degree with “promotion/pass” instead of “award of marks”. Considering that there could be different evaluation patterns adopted by different universities across the country (during academic year 2021 and 2022) due to covid-19 pandemic, the candidates with “promotion/pass” instead of “award of marks” certificates are eligible to apply. This eligibility relaxation is also applicable to those candidates who are final year students with “award” of marks.

In case the institution/university does not have any scheme for converting the CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by IIM Indore by dividing the obtained CGPA by the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying the resultant by 100 to confirm the Admission eligibility of the candidate. 
  • 8.4 A candidate appearing for the final year bachelor's degree/equivalent qualification examination and those who have completed the degree requirements and are awaiting results is also eligible to apply for IIM Indore Admission 2023. Such a candidate must produce a certificate from the principal/head of the department/ registrar/director of the institution/university certifying that the candidate is currently in the final year or is awaiting final results and has obtained at least 50% marks or equivalent (45% in case of the candidate belonging to SC/ST/PwD category) based on latest available grades/marks.
  • 8.5 IIM Indore Eligibility further clarifies that such a candidate, if selected, will not be eligible for the IIM Indore admission unless he/she submits a certificate latest by June 30, 2023 from the principal/head of the department/registrar/director of the institution/university (issued on or before June 30, 2023) stating that they have completed all the requirements (the result may, however, be awaited) for obtaining the bachelor's degree/equivalent qualification on the date of issue of the certificate.
