Despite the assiduous efforts of the IIMs to increase their intake of girls, a double century seems a long shot. Any such possibility, though, would amount to marginalisation of the General male! Diversity: A must The primary objective of any institute of management must be to remedy local problems. And this can only be achieved by putting together a class that reflects the demographics of the population. But the composition of the candidates who make the cut will never reflect that if the composition of the participants itself is deviant. It is no surprise then that the intake of girls through test scores is low, given their low enrollment for the test itself. So any attempt to accommodate more girls into the system is only an intervention to equalise outcomes. Also, the idea of awarding additional points for gender throws up issues of differential ability. Clearly, girls are not in any way inferior to boys: four girls secured 99.99 %ile. So giving away brownie points for gender is a veiled insult to female intelligence. What the institutes must focus on, really, is to improve the diversity of participating students rather than trying to present the illusion of diversity in a batch that is virtually monolithic. They need to introspect on the testing process. Is the examination itself facilitating diversity or is it favorable to only a section of the student population? It's not surprising that CAT is dominated by engineers throughout.

This reminds me of classical business cum engineering case study. When your product is not doing well, you should concentrate more on improving the product. I think mere marketing stints of any kind would cause more harm than help.

I am definitely in favor of diversity, but not by blatantly giving additional marks to any particular category[not limiting to females alone]. Interesting article overall.
