Selection Criteria

Here are the major takeaways from IIM Ahmedabad's latest selection criteria for 2019:

1. IIM Ahmedabad has introduced work experience as an admission criterion for the flagship PGP programme. Candidates with less than 12 months of work experience are awarded no points while working professionals with over 36 months (3 years) of work experience are awarded 5 points. Those with work experience between 12 and 36 months (inclusive) will receive work experience rating scores based on the following formula:

Work Experience Rating Score = MF * (N-11), where N is the number of months of work experience and Multiplication Factor (MF) = 0.2.

The maximum score by using this formula is 5 points, while the minimum score is 0.2. For instance, if you have 18 months of work experience, you will be awarded a score of 1.4 out of a maximum of 5.

2. All applicants with an Engineering, Technology or Architecture background in IIM Ahmedabad's AC-4 category have it tough again, with a graduation score > 85% required for a perfect 10 score.

3. For Round 1 of shortlisting by IIM Ahmedabad based on academic excellence, the formula for calculation has changed since 2018. In 2018, the CAT score accounted for 70% of the composite score. In 2019, the CAT score accounts for 65% of the composite score, while the Application Rating Score accounts for 35% of the composite score.

4. IIM Ahmedabad continues to not provide any additional points for gender diversity.
