@obvious No. without 5 yrs. work-ex., you cannot appear for research aptitude test..Sushant
ok ... my friend actually has quite a few years of experience in lecturing at colleges and working at research institutes and is on the verge of publication. I have conveyed the same to my friend although he got a bit disappointed as he is actually very much looking forward to IIFM. 😞 ... He is currently working on a public education project and till date could accumulate an experience of around 3.5 years only ... :(

@obvious Dear obvious,Yes, IIFM has a cut-off for FPM. I dont know the exact for last year. But I think it was around 70 percentile for FPM.Interview questions generally revolve around the area of specialization you have applied. Though no hardcore questions on environ. & forestry, but the panel expects you to have atleast general awareness about this sector. And lastly, why IIFM.Hope this helps..Sushant

Hi Sushant,


I am an aspirant for the FPM program at IIFM. I had appeared for CAT this year.
Is there any percentile cut off for getting calls from IIFM so far as FPM program is concerned ?

What type of questions are specifically asked in the interview / Are those environment-natural resources specific or work experience specific or acads specific or simply yhe statement of purpose ...

Thanks in advance...

@Muneza Dear Muneza, I assume that u r looking forward to pursue FPM in general management streams like HRM, Fin., Mark., etc. If this is the case, then no doubt IIMs is first choice for anyone. You should consider IIFM only if you want to apply general management concepts in the field of forestry, environment, etc. In other words, IIFM offers a blend / application of management fundas in this sector (forestry, environ., etc.).
I hope u got some clarity.
Please feel free to write back.
Cheers,
Sushant
