IIM Ahmedabad Selection Process

IIM Ahmedabad begins the selection process for admission to PGP and PGP-FABM soon after shortlisting the students. Shortlisted students then appear for the two-step process of IIM Ahmedabad.

  • In the first step, candidates are shortlisted on the basis of cutoff, and in the second step, candidates will appear for Analytical Writing Test (AWT) and Personal Interview (PI) rounds.

The candidate’s overall score is calculated on the basis of the candidate’s profile, performance in selection rounds, and academic records. The formula used to calculate the final composite score (FCS) is:

FCS = PIF * Normalised PI Score + AWTF * Normalised AWT Score + CATF_FCS * Normalised CAT Score + ARF_FCS * AR

  • Personal Interview Multiplication Factor (PIF) = 0.50

  • AWT Multiplication Factor (AWTF) = 0.10

  • Application Rating Multiplication Factor for Final Composite Score (ARF_FCS) = 0.15

Hi, what percentile an NC-OBC female candidate should aim in CAT 2022 to get into IIM Ahmedabad? My profile is : 95/97/83. And I am from Arts background.

See since you are from arts background, and you also have a good academic record (barring your graduation percentage), so you can get a call for interview even a slightly lower percentile.

According to the previous trends, you can easily get into IIM Ahmedabad even at a percentile in the range of 92 to 95, which is a safe estimate for your admission in the OBC NCL category.

Hope I have answered your question. All the best!

70.80 % in 10th and 83.23% in 12th (commerce) and 9.60 out of 10 points in graduation (b.com in finance) will I get a call from IIM A,B,C considering I get the appropriate CAT score (>99.5%)

Dear Aspirant,

Yes, if you get above 98%ile then you can get a call from the top IIMs because you have a great score in your graduation as well. But it also depends on your gender and your category. For example, you’re a non engineer so you can get calls at 98%ile too. But if you’re not from general category then you can get calls at a lower percentile as well. So be sure to check the cutoffs of the colleges you’re targeting according to the category you belong to.
