IIM Shortlisting Criteria

The admission process consists of two stages: shortlisting of candidates and the final Selection of candidates. During the first stage, initially a pool of candidates who satisfy the following minimum CAT percentiles are considered.

Category of Candidate Sectional Percentile Overall Percentile
General 80 90
OBC (NC) 65 78
SC 50 60
ST 30 40
DAP 30 40

The above percentiles are just minimum eligibility percentiles, the actual cutoffs may be higher than this.
