About this group
The change has come. This time around IIMs are clear about what they are doing. They have released the criteria for 2012-2014 batch. But IIMs are pretty clear about academic backgrounds. I'm sure this will be useful for us Indian Institute...

Hi, 85 mentioned as overall cut-off(GEN) is t marks or percentile??



It must be percentile.
When it comes to dreams, one may falter, but only way to fail is to abandon them

Can understand the biggest mistake of my life, it is 799(out of 1000) I scored in HS(West Bengal State Board)..2 more marks ;).
So my score is 3*2*2+2=14

But it was always C and let it be..

This admission criteria by IIM-A is if one step progressive then two steps regressive. Consider those who pass out from govt. colleges in North India and where only the college topper has more than 80% in graduation. The guy would never be able to make the cut. To worsen the situation, the ratings in first 3 criterion are to be multiplied. Consider a sitn:

An average guy passed out from say an IP University/Anna University college with 81% in gradn., 88% in 10th and 81% in 12th. His rating score: 3*3*3=27.
An intelligent guy passed out of IIT: 10th: 94% 12th: 91% Gradn: CGPA 7.8 (eqvt to 78% as per CAT) His rating: 3*3*2=18. Even if the guy has 3 years of work-ex, his cumulative score would be 21. Much less than the guy passed out from a college where marks are given in abundance.

So even if the IITian scores 99.5%ile, he will get much less marks than the other guy who scored say 97%ile. And will get a call. Toooo biased towards colleges where marks are given in abundance.


Agreed that the criteria is not totally fair......but its noth that unfair too......
Chech this link for an explanation of a possible situation......

And in the case you mentioned the 97%ile guy will never get a call.....and the 99.5%ile may or may not get a call.....but if instead of 99.5 its say 99.7 or 99..8 then in my opinion he will get a call......
