PGP Admission Policy 2017

This document summarizes the approach of IIM Udaipur to prepare the admission list for its 7th PGP Batch (2017-19). The batch size is likely to be around 240. IIM Udaipur reserves the right to modify any part of this document including the various criteria and cut offs mentioned at any time till the actual admission process for the batch is completed.

The admission process of IIM Udaipur consists of:

  1. (a) CAT Examination
  2. (b) Short listing candidates for Personal Appearance (PA) process.
  3. (c) Conducting the PA process. PA process is composed of Written Analysis (WA) and Personal Interview (PI). The PA process will be common to all the 9 IIMs, namely, IIM Amritsar, IIM Bodhgaya, IIM Kashipur, IIM Raipur, IIM Ranchi, IIM Rohtak, IIM Sambalpur, IIM Trichy and IIM Udaipur.
  4. (d)Preparing the Merit List based on CAT score, PI & WA score and Profile score as indicated in following tables.

1. Criteria for Short listing for PA (WA & PI) process

The cut-off percentile marks for eligibility for PA process in the three sections and the total CAT percentile for different categories of students are given below.

Verbal and Reading Comprehension Percentile RankData Interpretation & Logical Reasoning Percentile RankQuantitative Aptitude Percentile RankOverall Percentile Rank

IIM Udaipur Admission Committee will decide the number of candidates who would be called for PA process on the basis of criteria prepared for each category. However, if the actual number of short-listed candidates were found to be less (more) than the required number of candidates to be called for WA & PI category-wise, then the overall as well as section-wise minimum score would be reduced (increased) to get the desired number of candidates.

The 9 IIMs (IIM Amritsar, IIM Bodhgaya, IIM Kashipur, IIM Raipur, IIM Ranchi, IIM Rohtak, IIM Sambalpur, IIM Trichy and IIM Udaipur) have decided to adopt a common process of WA&PI to be coordinated this year by IIM Rohtak. In case any of the older IIMs (Bangalore, Calcutta, Indore,Kozhikode, and Lucknow) are willing to share their WA & PI score with the 9 IIMs, the common candidates who have applied to new IIMs, need not to appear for WA & PI process separately, else they have to appear. The common candidates will be intimated the names of older IIMs sharing WA & PI scores with new IIMs.

2. Criteria for Preparing the Merit List
The criteria for preparing the merit list will be as follows
  • CAT Score*: 55 %
  • Personal Appearance (WA & PI): 21%
  • Profile: 24%

*CAT Score of the candidate divided by Maximum CAT Score among candidates who have applied to IIMU and attended WA & PI. It is clarified that the CAT Score would be used and not the CAT Percentile.

a. CAT Score: IIM Udaipur will use CAT 2016 score

b. Personal Appearance: IIM Udaipur will consider the following weights

  • Personal Interview : 15%

Candidates who do not obtain certain minimum scores in the WA & PI would not be considered for the merit list. The minimum scores would be decided by IIM Udaipur at its discretion.

c. Profile: The following will be the breakup of the 24% component for Profile.

  • Academic Profile: 8 %
