    IIM Lucknow Score Calculation

    IIM Lucknow Score Calculation Method

    Scaled CAT Score Calculation (CS)

    • The maximum weightage is given to CAT score that is 60% for shortlisting candidates in all the 3 types of courses. 

    • The scaled CAT Score is calculated by using the formula:

    (Candidate’s CAT Score / Maximum Marks) X 60

    For example, if a candidate has scored 150 marks in CAT out of 300, the scaled CAT Score would be (150/300) * 60 = 30.

    Class 12 Marks (12M)

    • IIMs do consider the past academic scores of candidates.

    • The weightage of Class 12 marks is 10 marks in the composite score.

    • The weightage of class 12 marks varies depending upon the percentage scored by the candidates in that class.

    Here is table representing the scores given to different percentages in Class 12 in the composite score

    PercentageScore in CSPercentageScore in CS
    80.01-82.00190.01-92.006
    82.01-84.00292.01-94.007
    84.01-86.00394.01-96.008
    86.01-88.00496.01-98.009
    88.01-90.00598.01-10010

    Graduation Marks (GM)

    • The maximum weightage given to graduation marks is 10 marks. 
    • Also, the Graduation score of the candidate is normalized for each kind of stream.
    • IIM Lucknow uses a mathematical formula for normalization, but the variable of that formula actually depends upon the graduation scores of other candidates who have been shortlisted.

    Work Experience (WE)

    • The maximum weightage of Work Experience is 10 marks in PGP and PGP-SM.
    • Work experience is not taken into consideration for PGP-ABM. 
    • The valid work experience that is considered should be of at least 6 months and 24 months for PGP and PGP-SM respectively.

    Diversity Factor

    • The weightage of Diversity factor is based on two factors that is Gender and Academic Background. This component has been added recently.
    • Female candidates will get 5 points for diversity factor for all kinds of courses, irrespective of their graduation stream.
    • For PGP and PGP-SM, candidates who have done their graduation in any stream except Engineering will get 5 points of diversification.
    • For PGP-ABM courses, candidates will get 5 points of diversity if they belong to streams like Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, Forestry, Science etc.
