U can def apply to IIMA ABM 😁 ..But for IIML ABm u need atleast 2 years work ex in agri related fields....In IIMA ,they do check out ur acad background till date...So if ur a consistent performer , u have a fair chance..I dont know of any comm grad whos been selected for ABM...But if u can really and i mean really convince the panel about ur depth of knowledge and interest in agri,theres no reason they shouldnt take u.Having a max CAt score is only one of the criteria..There are so many others..My advice is if ur genuinely interested,,go for it.....
Great to listen to u SHOGUN
I am a Commerce graduate and have pretty average acad backgraound (55%-65%)but We have a century old agr business. Now can I apply for IIM ABM(A/L). Also what are the chances of my converting the call as i have non agi acad background and that too poor. If i can manage a percentile of 98+ can i make it?
fist of all ,,dear govind...it seems ur cat % has got a lot to do with u not making it here..In fact 75% is too low for u..With ur engg background,,u def can get more...So try harder...Here topper in abm for cat % is by the way myself(98.18%) and most of junta fall in the 90 + bracket...Ther r some 80+s,but i duno whether they have quota or reservation or stuff like that.....So to be on safer side,,aim for max %.....
Jyotir,,vety guys in our batch is only 1...Life is so hectic that i sleep at 4.30 am..Need i say more..Here in first year u are a PGP student,meaning u compete with all the iit ,rec wallahas and the toppers in the country for ur grades..U r ABm identity comes out only in 2nd year ,when u choose electives...So u are relatively gradedw/r to the best brains inthe country...The academic standards ,pressure,competition is outta this world. ....Regarding Abm w/r to nm and ximb...it really depends on which fiels u want to be in..I can tell uthat the avg sal for last years abm watch was 6-6.5 l/annum and top offer was 13 l/annum..At the end of the day,,U EMERGE AS IIM A GRAD,,,NOT AN NM OR XIMBI PASSOUT....Believe me A means A and not b/c/l/k....and def not xim or nm...So guys its ur call all the way.....
Adios and bol for ur mock cats..

due to our family business of cold storage
Didn't got through this year....
though my GD/PI was really tooooooo gooood.
feedback available at http://www.pagalguy.com/cat/viewtopic.php?t=2979
But its true that 90 + percentile is very necessary for ABM at IIMA
i have met people with Agri bckgrd and percentile of 64 with GD/PI call
I am placed through Campus at Blue Star Ltd., Mumbai in Cold Storage Dept.
will work there for a year and again try CAT 2004
I had joined Professional Tutorials this year..... so don't plan to join any classes
will look for test series later on.
rest is going great.
