Students who have given CAT are eagerly waiting for their results. But the process is not over yet, it starts here. Be prepared for WAT and PI for your selection into IIMs. Below is the selection criteria for IIM Indore for IIM CAT 2016-18 Batch.

Eligibility criteria for CAT 2015 Applicants

The  candidate must hold a Bachelor’s Degree, with at least 50% marks or equivalent CGPA [45% in case of the candidates belonging to Scheduled Caste (SC), Scheduled Tribe (ST) and Differently Abled (DA) categories], awarded by any of the Universities incorporated by  an  act  of  the  central  or state  legislature  in  India or other educational institutions established by an act of Parliament or declared to be deemed as a University under Section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956, or possess an equivalent qualification recognized by the Ministry of HRD, Government of India.
