Want to do MBA from Top Indian B-Schools, IIM's ,prepare for CAT

Many students in their Graduation dream about getting into IIM's or top Business-Schools for pursuing their MBA, but while preparing they are not sure that will they be able to make it happen.

Getting into any of the prestigious IIM’s is really a herculean task due to high level of competition. Mere qualifying CAT with high percentile can’t ensure seat in IIM's . Before we get into details  let us know the procedure followed by IIM’s for selection:

1). Valid CAT score
2).Writing Ability Test(WAT).
3). Group Discussion.
4). Personal Interview (PI).

Once CAT result is out , candidates have to apply at the individual colleges with their CAT score .Cut off to apply in IIM’s is minimum 90 percentile CAT score and minimum 80 percentile in all three section of CAT exam.

While shortlisting candidates, other things which are taken into consideration are, Academic background(10th, 12 th and Graduation) and work experience. After considering academic performance and work experience candidates with low CAT scores can also be preferred over candidates with high CAT score.

Once shortlisted candidates are called for Writing Ability Test(WAT), Group Discussion and Personal Interview respective by IIM’s . Every round have separate weightage for the final selection in the college.

Newly formed IIMs conducts separate Common Admission Process (CAP) rounds. Candidates appear for common Writing Ability test and Personal Interview and Each IIM asses their performances and release institute wise merit list based on the selection criteria of the college.

Apart from 20 IIM’s , other 100+ B schools in India accepts CAT score.

Selection Procedure in Non IIM Business schools

Non IIM business schools may use different selection criteria for final selection among Shortlisted candidates with valid CAT score, like GD, WAT or PI.

The certification must be from any of the Universities that are accredited by the Ministry of HRD, Government of India.

Is Doing MBA from IIT’s Good Enough

While IIM’s charge too high for the MBA courses , IIT’s are providing these courses at very minimal charges which students belonging to a middle class family can afford. As far as syllabus is concerned, IIT’s offer latest syllabus, as these courses has been started late compared to other Institutes. Now MBA students of IIT’s are also being offered good packages.
So doing MBA from IIT’s is very good options if you can’t afford from IIM’s. & career 360
