IIM- Vishakhapatnam Admission Criteria 2016

By: Anshika on August 30, 2016

The admission process comprises following stages.

  • Shortlisting candidates for WAT/PI rounds.
  • Final Selection of candidates.

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

Category QA DI/LR VA/RC Overall
OPEN 80 80 85 90
NC OBC 70 70 75 80
SC 60 60 60 75
ST 50 50 50 65
PWD 50 50 50 65

  • The actual cutoffs could be much higher than the ones mentioned above.
  • All candidates in the first shortlist (that is, those who have applied to IIM Visakhapatnam and also meet the minimum percentile requirements shown in Table above) would be receiving an e-mail from IIM Visakhapatnam around 15th April 2016, with a link to a web page where they MUST reconfirm, by a stipulated date, their interest to pursue their candidature further for the admission to PGP 2016-18 at IIM Visakhapatnam.

Among the pool of candidates who meet the above mentioned percentiles, a list of candidates who would be called for attending Written ability test (WAT) and Personal Interview rounds is generated using the following parameters.



Parameter Maximum Score
CAT 2015 QA 5
CAT 2015 DI&LR 8
CAT 2015 VA&RC 7
SSC Marks 15
12 Marks 10
Graduation Marks 15
Work Ex 10
Professional course
Gender Diversity 1

  • Candidates with Chartered Accountancy, Cost Accounting, and Company Secretary certifications are eligible for weight under professional course. No other professional course is eligible for weight under professional course.
  • The score/weight for work experience is calculated as: Score for Work Experience = 10x/36 (if 0 < x < 36) = 10 (if x >= 36)

Where x is the months of work experience up to September 2015, as captured in CAT application form (and substantiated in the application to IIMV). 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.


  • 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 selection of candidates-

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