Revised IIM Ahmedabad Admission Criteria 2022-2024
IIM Ahmedabad Admission Process will be conducted keeping in mind the COVID-19 crisis. The candidates are selected based on their CAT scores, past academic performance, and interview performance. The admission process of IIM Ahmedabad consists of two stages:
In the first stage, the candidates are selected based on their respective CAT scores for Analytical Writing Test (AWT) and Personal Interview (PI). This selection is done among those candidates who have applied for the PGP programme and also who satisfy the IIM Ahmedabad Eligibility Criteria.
CAT 2021 consisted of three sections: Quantitative Ability (QA), Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DILR), and Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension (VARC). Only the candidates who score above the following minimum cut-offs in the sectional percentile ranks, the overall percentile rank, and obtaining a positive (greater than zero) raw score in all sections of CAT exam will be considered for all the subsequent stages.

At this stage, the selection of the candidates will strictly be based on the shortlisting of the candidates done separately for each category (General/SC/ST/NC-OBC/PWD) based on their ‘Final Composite Score' (FCS). The numbers selected in different reservation categories will be in proportions mandated by Law.
The FCS of a candidate who appears in AWT & PI will be computed as follows:
FCS = PIF * Normalised PI Score + AWTF * Normalised AWT Score + CATF_FCS * Normalised CAT Score + ARF_FCS * AR
Personal Interview Multiplication Factor (PIF) = 0.50
AWT Multiplication Factor (AWTF) = 0.10
CAT Score Multiplication Factor for Final Composite Score (CATF_FCS) = 0.25
Application Rating Multiplication Factor for Final Composite Score (ARF_FCS) = 0.15
