IIM Ahmedabad Admission Process 2024 

The selection of the candidates for admission to the 2024-26 Batch of the PGP at IIMA is a two-step process:

1. STEP 1: Preliminary Screening-

All candidates must take the CAT 2024 examination. The exam is conducted in November every year and the results are announced later. Based on CAT scores and fulfilling the minimum cutoffs, candidates will be shortlisted. 

In CAT-2023 there will be three sections, viz., ‘Quantitative Ability’ (QA), ‘Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning(DILR) and ‘Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension’ (VARC). Only the candidates above the following minimum cut-offs in the sectional percentile ranks, the overall percentile rank and obtaining a positive (greater than zero) raw score in all sections of CAT-2023 will be considered for all the subsequent stages.

Minimum Cut-offs of CAT-2023 Percentile Ranks

Category Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension percentile rank (PVARC) Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning percentile rank (PDILR) Quantitative Ability percentile rank (PQA) Overall percentile rank (PT)
General, EWS 70 70 70 80
NC-OBC-cum-transgender 65 65 65 75
SC 60 60 60 70
ST 50 50 50 60
PwD (General, EWS, NC-OBC-cum-transgender, SC) 60 60 60 70
PwD (ST) 50 50 50 60

Read more: CAT Syllabus 2024

At different stages of the selection process ‘Application Rating’ (AR) score of an applicant will be used. An applicant’s AR score is the sum of the rating scores based on their percentage of marks obtained in the 10th standard, the 12th standard (depending upon the stream, viz., ‘Science’, ‘Commerce’ and ‘Arts & Humanities’), the bachelor’s degree program (depending upon the discipline) and work experience (as on July 31, 2023) respectively. For different streams/disciplines the equivalent ARs are arrived at by using a (sort of) percentile equivalence of the score distributions using previous year’s CAT data. 

2. STEP 2: Shortlisting for Analytical Writing Test (AWT) & Personal Interview (PI)

Shortlisting will be carried out in two stages:

  • Stage 1: From the Applicants’ pool: Selection of exceptional performers across different disciplines
  • Stage 2: After removing the candidates selected in Stage 1 from each category (General, NC-OBC, SC, ST and PWD) the additional number of candidates to be shortlisted for AWT & PI will be selected on the basis of the composite score ‘CS’.

Final Selection: 

Selection at this stage will strictly be based on the shortlisting of the candidates done separately for each category (General/SC/ST/NC-OBC/PwD) on the basis of their ‘Final Composite Score’s (FCS). The numbers selected in different reservation categories will be in proportions mandated by law.

The FCS of a candidate who appears in AWT & PI will be computed as follows:

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

Personal Interview Multiplication Factor (PIF) = 0.50 

AWT Multiplication Factor (AWTF) = 0.10

CAT Score Multiplication Factor for Final Composite Score (CATF_FCS) = 0.25

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