This shortlist for General category students consists of 2 Doctors/people from the medicine stream (AC 1), 45 – Either CA/CS/ICWA (AC 2), 95 – From Commerce and Management (AC 3), 102 Engineers, 100 Science graduates, 61 Arts/Humanities graduates. This data also shows that there were only 2738 general category applicants to IIM Ahmedabad from the humanities background and only about 3500 in total from a pool of 1.95 Lacs who took CAT.
