Five IIMs shortlist candidates
The admission process to Indian Institutes of Management has been set in motion with five IIMs on Wednesday releasing the list of candidates shortlisted for group discussion/personal interview.
IIM Ahmedabad, considered to be one of the toughest B-schools to get into, has stuck to last year’s cut-offs. It has shortlisted 917 candidates for its post graduate programme in Management.
To be considered, candidates should have secured at least 99 percentile overall, and 94 percentile in each of the three sections -- Verbal, Quantitative, and Data Interpretation.
IIM Calcutta has shortlisted 1,292 candidates, but is yet to declare its CAT score cut-offs. The Institute is unique among all IIMs to shortlist candidates based on CAT scores alone. It had a cut-off of 99.97 percentile last year.
Of the remaining three, the IIM Lucknow has shortlisted 1,892 candidates, while IIM Ranchi has shortlisted 1,036 candidates.
Interestingly IIM Ranchi has decided to go with a high CAT cut-off score of 99.66 percentile. While IIM Shillong has not announced the number of shortlisted candidates, aspirants can enter their roll numbers on its website to check their selection.
The remaining five IIMs are expected to come out with their lists in a day or two.
The four new IIMs - Ranchi, Rohtak, Raipur, and Trichy - have also declared that they would hold joint group discussion/personal interview for selection of candidates.
