IIM- Trichy Admission Criteria 2016

By: Anshika on August 30, 2016

Changes when compared to last year

  • The weightage given to Personal Interview round has been brought down from 17% to 15%

  • The weightage given to gender diversity during the final selection process has been increased from 1% to 3%.

Admission Process:

The admission process for the PGP program comprises of following stages.

  1. Shortlisting candidates for WAT/GD//PI round.
  2. Final Selection of candidates post WAT/GD/PI round

During the first stage, initially a pool of candidates who satisfy the following minimum CAT 2015 percentiles are considered.

Category of Candidate Sectional Percentile Overall Percentile
General 80 90
NC-OBC 72 81
SC 60 75
ST 50 65
DAP 55 70

Among the pool of candidates who meet the above mentioned percentiles, a list of candidates would be called for attending Written ability test (WAT) and Personal Interview depending on their performance in CAT.

One point to be noted here is that for shortlisting candidates for WAT/PI rounds IIM Trichy is considering only the CAT performance of a candidate. This goes on to show that performing well in CAT 2016 would go a long way in securing a WATGD//PI call from this premier B-school.

The following are the weightages that would be considered during the final selection of candidates

Component Maximum Weight
CAT 50%
Personal Interview 15%
WAT 15%
Work Experience 5%
Graduation marks 10.00%
Masters Degree or professional course ( CA/ICWA/CS) 2.00%
Gender Diversity 3.00%

To conclude, one important observation about this year's selection process is that the total weightage for parameters which are controllable ( CAT,WAT and PI ) in the final selection stage has been kept at a whopping 80%. This ensures that the applicants, who do not have a good academic profile or work experience can still aspire to join IIM Trichy by preparing well for CAT 2016, WAT and PI rounds.

Note- The Personal Interview and Written Analysis Test would be conducted at New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai and Kolkata. The exact date for PI & WAT will be communicated to the short­listed candidates by IIM Kashipur. who is co-ordinating for 2016-18 batch on behalf of IIM-Raipur, IIM-Ranchi, IIM-Rohtak, IIM-Tiruchirappalli and IIM- Udaipur & IIM-Kashipur, (also referred to herein as the “new IIMs”).

In cases where candidates have been shortlisted by the six new IIMs as well as older IIMs, IIM Kashipur would obtain the PI & WAT scores of such candidates directly from the older IIMs. Such candidates will be informed in advance by IIM-Kashipur, and they need not appear for the PI & WAT conducted by the new IIMs.
