Sorry,but your acad scores dont look so good according to last year's criteria of the top IIMs.

IIM-C looks achievable but its cut off was 99.6+ .

IIM-I,B have heavy weightage to acads .

IIM-A is out of reach as well .

Not sure of IIM-L and the new IIMs

@SP010392 Assuming that u are a Gen candidate, honestly, ur only real chance is IIM-C at 99.63, that too u will need an outstanding WAT/PI to convert ur call. Also, IIM-A calls ANY engineer that scores 99.96 directly to PI, irrespective of their acads. Anything less than & u fall short of the desired composite score with ur profile. Other than that, no real chance in BLKI.

Ur best chance of a Top-10 MBA degree is XLRI, where acads don't play a major role. It will be prudent to shift ur focus to these great B-Schools coz old IIMs are a far reach (almost beyond it). Try to score high in CAT/XAT & aim for XLRI & MDI. Best of luck & go crazy in CAT

Saurabh Raina @Dante_ftw1 1.3 k

FMS i'm afraid to say won't call as they need 60 in Grad,

Your only realistic chance is XLRI @ 96+%le in XAT

IIM C : 99.61%le in CAT

IIM A : 99.97%le in CAT

IIM B : 100%le in either of 2 sections or overall

IIM K : 99.9+%le in CAT

IIM S : 98.8+%le in CAT

Rest of the IIMs not possible. I'm excluding baby IIMs as they don't have a great standing in rankings or placements.

Rest assured try for others like :

MDI : 98.5+%Le in CAT

IIFT : clear the cut-off

@rulzdestiny The weightage given to work-ex is too less to compensate for the massive weightage given to acads. Also 4yrs is anyways not desirable by most top B-Schools since they are a headache during placements & are the most difficult to be placed in a job THEY seek (not one that is forced on them). Like in IIM-C, u get the max 8 marks for 3yrs of work-ex & after that it goes on decreasing. Also in stringent criterias like IIM-B, a deficit in any one field is usually enough to eliminate u. Like u may have the desired 90+ in X & XII but if ur engg score is say 75%, then most of the times, a GEM will end up getting eliminated. IIM-B selects the most outstanding profiles in India which is why it is giving IIM-A such a tough fight for no. 1. SPJIMR is another B-School that is very strict when it comes to profiles. So, for someone with bad acads, the current set of criterias unfortunately ruin his chances, even before the results are out. Sorry for being the one to bring u bad news

Your Profile is good enough for a convert if u do get calls... Perhaps if u score 99+ u def will get the coveted calls... Plus gender diversity and academic diversity will also aid u... goodluck with prep...

next_big_thing
ANKIT BARIK @next_big_thing 133

@nikitamehra84 Generally normalization of ur Econ score yields a great marks. Like in IIM-I, 68% in SXC fetched a call but 75% in engg. did not (with X & XII both 90). But urs is a bit too low (66+ would still be decent but a mere 60% makes it tricky). The biggest advantages in ur favour are ur Gender & Stream. I would advise u to make full use of it rather than settling for mediocre colleges like IMT-G, IMI. U are just a fresher with atleast 2 attempts left in u still (anything less than 2yrs of work-ex is ideal for indian MBA), so u should not settle for mediocrity this early in ur career. With ur profile, u will get,

IIM-C at 99.1

IIM-B - practically no chance.

IIM-A at 99.2

IIM-L at 99.2

IIM-K at 99. Normally 98 would do but owing to ur weak acads, u may need more than other women (women enjoy a MASSIVE advantage here, with a difference of almost 30 marks b/w Male & Female. This is ur best bet)

IIM-I - very bright chances at above 90 (2nd best bet)

So as u can see, u will get calls from almost all Top IIMs if u can clear the cut-offs. So there is no need to settle for mediocre colleges. The ball is completely in ur court. Work hard & prove to URSELF that u are worthy enough to amass a great score. If u can manage that, the WAT/PI stage will be pretty easy to sail through. Best of luck
