[Official] IIM Bangalore 2021-23 Admission Queries

I just got a shortlist from IIMB for their PGP programme. Wanted to know what specific questions are asked from persons giving recommendations as my seniors giving recommendations want to know the same (before I mention their details in the interview form). Or is it that they simply have to write a letter stating why they believe in giving the recommendation for my admission to IIMB?

Any updates on IIMB BA shortlist for PI. I had updated EOI confirmation. 

My referees having issues in receiving mail from [email protected], as they only recieved a mail containing some passcode but not the external link to access the referral form. They had checked in their spam/junk folder but couldn't find any separate mail containing links.. If anyone has the link to the form, kindly share it if its a common one.

 Has anyone else faced this issue? 

@umanggupta3 @Aishwarya05Nair support required..

In my CAT form, mistakenly I multiplied the total marks also by conversion factor and hence my 10th board got entered as 96% which should be around 91.2% if we don't multiply the total marks by factor.

What should I do now?

Any idea on the summer placements of MBA BA programme???


I have not received the link for my referees yet. I have got only a mial saying that I will have to submit the link by 1st of Feb. Can someone help me out here.

Dear Sir/Ma'am, I am a Qualified Chartered Accountant who qualified in May, 2019 and I started working from October, 2019 in the capacity of Chartered Accountant. However, I completed from graduation in September, 2020 (Regular Evening College). I had completed my regular classes for Graduation by June 2019 but owing to a clash in the exam dates with CA Final (13th June 2019 - Last paper of CA and first paper of B.Com, Bangalore University were at 2pm-5pm and I had to chose between the two) I had a backlog of one paper in the final year of B.Com, which I completed in Sep 2020 (the dates were delayed due to Covid). In the application form, I am getting the error " Your Work Experience period overlaps with your Bachelor's Degree Completion period. " Since I am working in the capacity of CA, it is not essential to complete graduation before joining work. My work is based on my CA qualification and is not an internship. Request you to please guide in the matter. Abhilasha Balakrishnan

Hi I got a phase 1 call for PGPBA IIM B. I tried logging into the link for reconfirmation but was facing technical issue like others. Yesterday again when I was trying it was giving same 404 error. I mailed them and tried reaching out to them but no response. However I have given my reconfirmatiin on mail as the link was not working for me. Can anyone help me with this?

Hi! Is it necessary to upload the bonafide certificate in the prescribed format only. It is not possible to get it signed right now. I have the bonafide in the format prescribed on CAT website. Will that work?

Is there any news on the format which IIMB would follow? 

1. Whether the interviews will be from home or in a similar to the format which IIMA is following (This is a concern because there is no option to edit the location now and has the one which we had filled at the time of CAT)

2. Whether WAT will be there? (Asking even for online interviews and as mostly no other IIM is conducting WAT as per the schedule out till now). If no IIM is gonna conduct WAT, then we need not waste time preparing for it

3. Will the interview for PGP and PGPBA be common? No form for PGPBA is out yet, hence the question.

What is the cutoff for PGP BA of IIM B for GEM?

Hi Guys,

There's something called "choice of career in management" in the SOP template that's avalaible on the IIM B portal. Any idea if we are supposed to write something there? or just leave it as it is.



Referees have not received mails from "[email protected]" to submit their recommendation. Not even in spam folders.

Please resolve the issue at the earliest. IIM B Admission Office (AO) is also not picking up calls.
