eligibility criteria

  • Candidate should possess graduate degree (minimum 3 years), with at least 50% marks in aggregate or equivalent CGPA (45% in case of the reserved category candidates) from any recognized institution or university.
  • If the candidates are awarded grades/CGPA instead of marks by the university, the normalization of marks will be carried out based on the said university’s scheme for converting the CGPA into equivalent marks. In case, the university does not have scheme for normalization, the equivalence would be established by IIMA.
  • Candidate due to appear for the final year bachelor’s degree/equivalent qualification examination or students who are awaiting results are also eligible to apply for the IIM-A MBA programme. Such a candidate must produce necessary certificates from the concerned department/ university confirming that he/she is awaiting final results and has secured minimum required percentile based on latest available grades/marks.
  • Such a candidate is provisionally admitted to the institution and must submit his/her mark-sheet and degree certificate of the final year bachelor’s degree examination held on or before June 30, 2017 (including supplementaries, if any) issued by the concerned institution/ university.

Admission Guidelines

The detailed selection process of IIM-A for admission to PG Programme in Management (PGP) is discussed below:

Step 1: Cracking CAT-2016

First and the foremost step for being shortlisted in IIM-A is securing excellent score in the Common Admission Test (CAT), a national level examination conducted for MBA admissions in 19 IIMs and over 150 B-schools in India.

CAT-2016 consists of three sections viz. Quantitative Aptitude (QA), Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DILR) and Verbal and Reading Comprehension (VRC). The following table contains the minimum required percentile (sectional and overall) in CAT-2016 for different category of candidates:

NC-OBC cum Transgender65656575


Step 2: Normalization of Application Rating (AR)

‘Application Rating’ (AR) score of a candidate is the sum of the rating scores ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ based on their percentage of marks obtained in the 10th standard, the 12th standard and the bachelor’s degree programme respectively i.e. Application Rating Score: AR= (A+B+C)

Normalised AR score– It is equal to candidate’s AR score divided by average of the top 50 AR scores from the group of candidates who appear for CAT-2016 and apply to IIMA.


  • In case of candidates who are yet to complete the bachelor’s degree, Normalized AR will be computed based on their available marks
  • For candidate having cleared CA/ICWA/CS without having a bachelor’s degree, the average of inter and final examinations’ percentage of marks obtained would be treated as their available marks

Step 3: Shortlisting Candidates for AWT & PI

Applicants are shortlisted to appear for Academic Writing Test (AWT) & Personal Interview (PI) round on the basis of their composite score (CS) subject to their fulfilling certain criteria.

CS = 0.3 (Normalised AR score) + 0.7 (Normalised overall score in CAT-2016)

IIMA will conduct its Academic Writing Tests and Personal Interviews (AWT & PIs) in selected cities across India viz. Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and New Delhi/NCR.

Step 4: Final Selection

Final selection of the candidate will be done strictly on the basis of their ranks computed separately for each category (General/SC/ST/NC-OBC/PWD) on the basis of their ‘Final Composite Scores’ (FCS).

FCS = 0.50 (Normalised PI Score) + 0.10 (Normalised AWT Score) + 0.40 (CS)

The normalised PI and AWT scores of a candidate are their scores in the respective field divided by the average of the top 1% scores in the same field respectively.
