Wat was the cut off last year for IMI Delhi ??

what was the last mark for which a candidate got a GDPI call??

@Stuppid said: Wat was the cut off last year for IMI Delhi ??
The selection criteria last year for GDPI call was:

PGDM (Minimum Cut-off)
CAT percentile- Overall 90; Quant 60; Verbal 65; Xth 65% , XIIth 65% , Graduation 60%

PGDHRM (Minimum Cut-off)
CAT percentile- Overall 85; Quant 60, Verbal 65;Xth 60%, XIIth 60%, Graduation 60%

Also, once you get a GDPI call your CAT percentile is not considered anymore. CAT percentile is just for filtering people for GDPI.

Post GDPI call, what will matter would be how you perform in the whole process.

Post GD-PI can u pls give the breakage on which final calls are given? like 10th, 12th , acads, psychometric testing testing etc.. that will b helpful to evaluate our profile..

That Change from year to year depending on the pool of applicants applied. I ll try to get you with this figure for the previous year in a day or two.

@noblekalra: Hi, Are there any Chartered Accountants in IMI is past batches? Is it worth for CA to apply?

@noblekalra Should i expect a final call, if i get an interview call.?
Give your estimated advice. I know that its hard to predict at this stage.
Having negligible extra curricular activities during school and college ,with a work experience of 18 months in chemical industry.
Good skills of giving interviews and GDs.
10th 78
12th 75
B.Tech(Mechanical) 66.

Is systems specialization available at IMI delhi....if so can you plz give an idea about profiles offered ?

it was 65% 65% and 60%in 10 12 grad last year, is it the same this year??

Please tell because that would save the application fees for many of us.

@gyayakjain Yeah there are CA's. Many are here who have even cleared second round of CFA.
I think that speaks all about it.
@Bhatakti-aatma yeah you have good chances especially with the work experience and diversity in terms of engineering. But this surely needs to be backed with good performance in WAT/PI
@EnigmaticT It totally depends on the the profile of candidates applying so this can't be answered by anyone. But I ll suggest you to apply and hope for the best.
@Vineet1991 Yes It is there. Regarding the profiles offered I need to contact the place com. I ll surely get back on this but it would take a day or two because we are going through our end terms.

NobelKarla but it was 65 65 60 last year and mine are >65 in 12th. I urge the admissions committee to make it clear BEFORE the last date of application form submission as a B school application form costs>1000 INR which is a considerable amount. If you are with them please try to pass my message to them. I respect this college very much and I hope they will address this issue.

If you have >65 then what is the issue ???

@noblekalra Also try to find the weightage given for giving the final calls after gdpi.. Am very much bothered about this because my acads are average.. So i have to juidge my profile.. Thanks in advance,,
@noblekalra Thanks for pressing those keys for me.
hoping to meet you in campus

Dear Mba Aspirants,

We at IMI Delhi wish you the best of luck for your upcoming CAT exam.Give your best shot.
What i would like to urge you all is that don't delay filling in the IMI Admission Forms.Agreed that since the last 2 years forms were reopened for students after the CAT results,but don't mistake it for a trend.There is nothing certain of what happens this year.So please fill the forms as soon as u can.
All the best..

One thing i would like to add is that you have got a non IT background, and this will definitely work to your advantage once you enter a B School.
So don't wait for anything.
Go for it!!

my profile is as folows...
10th 70.20
12th 62
BE 69.95
working in accenture from the past 2 ers...

and even if I get the call ,they would again check my academics for the final selection..
so does it make sense for my to apply to this college???
