IIM Shortlisting Criteria

The admission process comprises following stages: shortlisting candidates for WAT / PI rounds and the final Selection of candidates. During the first stage, initially a pool of candidates who satisfy the following minimum CAT percentiles and academic profile are considered.

Category of Candidate Sectional Percentile Overall Percentile
General 80 90
OBC (NC) 60 78
SC 50 60
ST 30 40
PWD 30 40

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.

For WAT/PI rounds IIM Rohtak is considering only the CAT performance of a candidate. The following are the weightages that would be considered during the final selection of candidates:

Parameter CAT total score WAT & PI Work Ex and Past academic performance
Weightage 35.00% 30.00% 35.00%

The total weightage for parameters which are controllable (CAT, WAT and PI) in the final selection stage has been kept at 65%. This ensures that the applicants, who do not have v.good academic profile or work experience can still aspire to join IIM Rohtak by performing well in CAT, WAT and PI rounds.
