What Does IIM Raipur's 2021 Admission Policy Mean For You?
Your CAT 2021 performance will be of paramount importance in deciding whether you make it to IIM Raipur's PGP program. In the very first step, candidates will be shortlisted basis their CAT 2021 scores. Since a candidate's profile is irrelevant at this stage, your CAT 2021 score will be the only deciding factor.
In the second stage of the admissions process, 70% of the weight is in the candidate's hand i.e., your performance in the personal interview round and CAT 2021 will be major deciding factors. Female applicants, as well as those from a non-engineering background will also have an advantage in the admissions process. Candidates with work experience will also have an advantage in the selection process, though those with less than 6 months or greater than 48 months of work experience will receive no marks for work experience.
