What are IIM Admission Criteria? Check your Call Chances
Your call from IIMs will depend upon various factors apart from your score in CAT 2020. To know whether you will get shortlisted by your preferred IIM A,B,C,L or others and what could lead you to get final admission offer from the IIM, the few points you have to consider are:

  • You need a high CAT 2020 sectional percentile as well as overall percentile. It means a percentile not less than 80-90 is needed. Even the new IIMs, FMS, MDI, IMT need a percentile around 91 to 99. So be honest while calculating your anticipated scores.
  • Excellent academic profile can boost your admission chances and will help you in getting shortlisted by IIMs. Class 10 & 12 marks (85+) will play an important role
  • If you have 2-3 years of work experience, IIMs and other top B schools will prefer you.
  • A few IIMs award weightage to gender diversity and to non-engineering back ground candidates. If you have either or both of them, you may get bonus weightage in admission 2021.
  • For admission 2021 IIMs declare minimum qualifying CAT 2020 percentile in a range of 80 to 90 although actual cut off will go much higher. It also means that minimum cut off may go up to any limit but cannot go below 80 and 90 for General category candidates.
