2) Are there sectional cut off's also?
3) Does the college provide hostel accommodation for married people, if they want to bring their spouse along?

Thanks,

Last Year the cutoff was 93%ile overall and 60%ile sectional. This year it might change.

2) Are there sectional cut off's also?
As mentioned above there was a sectional cut-off of 60%ile in each section.

3) Does the college provide hostel accommodation for married people, if they want to bring their spouse along?
No, the college does not provide accommodation for spouse. Though this matter can be discussed with the authorities in personal.

Viraj there is NO Quota for people with Goan Domicile. They just have a relaxation in Cut-off percentile. So after they get a call they are at the same level as other non-domicile candidates. Well if u have a goan domicile certificate ur eligible for the relaxation. The certificate is essential w/o which ur a general candidate.

Hope this solves ur query.

PS: Dont address me as Sir.

Hi Viraj,

I would like to add a bit to Shreye's point.

In order to be eligible to be called for the GDPI round of GIM's admission process you are required to clear the XAT cutoff score. Last year's cutoff stood at 93 percentile.

However, the qualifying cut-off XAT score will be lowered by 15 points for candidates of Goan domicile/origin. Documentary evidence of domicile will have to be supplied along with the completed Application Form. Your birth certificate is sufficient proof for you to qualify as a candidate of Goan origin.

Please note that at the GDPI round all the candidates would be competing on an even basis. As Shreye has rightly mentioned above there is no quota for candidates with Goan domicile or origin.

Hope this helps clear your doubts.

Hi Mayur Sir....

Can you please elaborate the Slection procedure of GIM....
How much weightage is given to wrk exp......

My humble request to all aspirants.
Please dont wait for the last date. Believe me you are applying to one of the "Best B-Schools in the country" and you cant afford to get delayed for any silly reason reason at the last minute.So start applying as soon as possible so that u can then concentrate on cracking the XAT and obtaining the required cut-off for GIM.
And yes... this year u can expect the cut-off percentile to be more higher. So be prepared...

Hi Mayur Sir....

Can you please elaborate the Slection procedure of GIM....
How much weightage is given to wrk exp......

Hi kaushal !..

This is the procedure mentioend on the site....and one which was followed last time..

The final selection will be made tentatively in April 2010 on the basis of XAT scores (50% weightage), the candidate's past academic performance (10% weightage), performance in face to face evaluation process (30 % weightage) and work experience (10% weightage), if any.

Face to face evaluation included a personal interview and an Essay....No GD's

n NO SIr from Next time plzz...

In order to be eligible to be called for the GDPI round of GIM's admission process you are required to clear the XAT cutoff score. Last year's cutoff stood at 93 percentile.The cut off might increase this year.Also u need to have a minimum Sectional cutoff of 60 Percent.
Regarding your 2nd question i would like to clarify that the final selection is made on the basis of XAT scores (50% weightage), the candidate's past academic performance (10% weightage), performance in face to face evaluation process (30 % weightage) and work experience (10% weightage) , if any.

But it doesnot matter even if u dont have work ex as ultimately what matters is your Overall Score. So if you are a fresher but have excellent Acads,interw, and extra curriculars, no one can stop you from entering GIM.
