IIM- Bangalore Admission Criteria 2016

By: Anshika on August 30, 2016

IIMB adopts a two-phase selection process. The first phase process is applied to all eligible candidates who appear for CAT 2015 to determine those qualifying candidates who will be called for personal interview (PI). The weighted total of the six components namely (a) work experience or professional course, (b) CAT, (c) 10th board, (d) 12th board, (e) bachelors, (f) gender diversity is used to prepare a pre-PI rank list for calling candidates for the PI.
 

  • The first shortlist of candidates is based on candidates securing minimum section-wise and aggregate percentile scores in the CAT. The minimum overall percentile and the sectional percentiles requirements have not been disclosed for CAT 15.

 

  • The candidates percentage scores in the 10th and 12th board exams are initially adjusted by dividing each such score by the 90th percentile score obtained in that board. Graduation scores are adjusted within their respective categories. This givesthe adjusted score for the bachelor's degree for all candidates in the first shortlist.

 

  • The candidates with Chartered Accountancy, Cost Accounting, and Company Secretary certifications are eligible for weight under professional course.
The score / weight for work experience is calculated as:

Pre PIscore forWork Experience = 5x/36 if 0 < x < 36;
= 5 if x >= 36



Where x is the months of work experience up to September 2015. This implies that the score will peak at 36 months work experience and will remain at that level for candidates with work experience exceeding 36 months.

First stage total (max of 66) = CAT (max of 20) + 10th (max of 15) + 12th (max of 10) + bachelors (max of 15) + Gender diversity (max of 1) + Work exp (max of 5)
 

  • The 20 points for CAT are derived from the performance in each of the three sections as follows: Quantitative Aptitude (QA) - 5 points, Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DILR) - 8 points, and Verbal & Reading Comprehension (VRC) - 7 points. Gender diversity component is applicable only for the pre-PI rank list for interview calls, and will not be applicable for phase 2 of the admissions process (final offers of admission).


The top 10 candidates in each of the following : total score in CAT, adjusted Bachelors' score (commerce, arts, and science disciplines), and Professional (CA / ICWA / CS), from the first shortlist automatically qualify for PI. These candidates are given a chance to appear for PI due to their exceptional performance in these categories. However, at the end of Phase 2, all such candidates must merit selection at an identical level of composite aggregate score like any other candidate.
 

  • During the PI process, the candidates selected will have to write a short note (one page) on a topic provided by IIMB. The time provided for writing the note will typically be about 30 minutes. During the interview, the panel will evaluate each candidate's performance on academic background, quality of work experience and other personal traits. The written note will be evaluated separately. Scores of both, written note and interview, in combination with pre-PI selection parameters will be used cumulatively in the second and final phase of selection.
  • The quality of work experience score will be evaluated on a 5 point scale (0.25 - 0.5 – 1 - 1.5 - 2) by each member of the panel during the interviews. The average quality of work experience score will be multiplied by the pre-PI work experience score and accordingly the work / professional experience component score (maximum score 5) used in Phase 1 will be revised in Phase 2 (maximum score10).


Note - The maximum of the work experience score and the professional course score is considered for selection under a common weight of 10 for work experience or professional course – since both provide professional work experience relevant to a management programme.

Final Aggregate Score (max of 105) = CAT (max of 20) + 10th (max of 15) + 12th (max of 10) + bachelors (max of 15) + Work exp (max of 10) + Note content (max of 7.5) + Note stye (max of 7.5) + PI (max of 20)
