Changes when compared to last year's admission criteria

IIM Bangalore adopts a two-phase selection process. The first phase process is applied to all eligible candidates who appear for CAT 2017 to determine those qualifying candidates who will be called for personal interview (PI).

The first shortlist of candidates is based on candidates securing minimum section-wise and aggregate percentile scores in the CAT. The percentile cut-off scores used for CAT 2016 ( last year ) are shown below

The minimum overall percentile and the sectional percentiles requirements have not been disclosed for CAT 17

Once the first shortlist is generated, 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 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 = 8x/36 if 0 < x < 36; = 8 if x >= 36

Where x is the months of work experience up to July 2017. 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.

For all candidates in the first shortlist, the maximum of the work experience score and the professional course score is considered for selection under a common parameter of work experience

Note-

  • The 40 points for CAT are derived from the performance in each of the three sections as follows: Quantitative Aptitude (QA) - 10 points, Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DILR) - 16 points, and Verbal & Reading Comprehension (VRC) - 14 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.
