Courses of Study (All courses are compulsory in the First Year):
Stage 1: Criteria for Eligibility to be considered for admission to PGP

|Minimum CAT 2014 percentile for shortlishting, section-wise|
|Category||Seats Available||Section 1 (QA+DI)||

Stage 2: Criteria for Final Selection of the Candidates
The candidates who had applied to the proposed new “IIM in Maharashtra” at the time of CAT-2014 registration and also meet the cut-offs shown in Table 1 above, would be receiving an email from IIM Nagpur. These candidates will be provided a link to a page where they MUST express and reconfirm their desire to pursue their candidature further for the admission to PGP in management at “IIM Nagpur” by a stipulated date.
a. Past Academic Performance (PAP)
Here, we look at the applicants’ academic performance (marks obtained) in 10th Standard Examination, 12th Standard Examination and Bachelor’s Degree Examination.
For 10th and 12th Standards: The eligible applicants, as obtained in stage 1 above, will be assigned rating scores ‘A’ and ‘B’ (See Table 2) based on their percentage of marks obtained in 10th and 12th standard examinations respectively.
For Bachelor’s Degree: The eligible applicants as obtained in stage 1 above, will be assigned a rating score ‘C’ (See Table 2) based on the percentage of marks received in the Bachelor’s degree.
Table 2: Past Academic Performance (PAP): Rating scores
AP Score for the candidate:
PAP = (0.25*A+0.35*B+0.40*C)/10
b. Work Experience (WE)
For the work experience of completed months x, the candidates will be assigned a WE score using the following formula:
WE = 0 for x <= 6
WE = 0 for x > 72
WE = x/36 for 6 < x <= 36
WE = 1 – ((x-36)/36) for 36 < x <= 72
Selection at this stage will strictly be based on the ranks of the candidates computed separately for each category (General/SC/ST/NC-OBC/DAP) on the basis of their Final Scores (FS). The numbers selected in different categories will be in proportions mandated by the law.
The FS of a candidate, who meet the CAT-2014 cut-offs mentioned in Table 1 and who expresses and reconfirms his/her desire to pursue the candidature further by the stipulated date, will be computed using the following rule:
FS = 0.50 * (CAT Total Score /Maximum1 CAT Total Score) + 0.30 * (PAP Score) +0.20 * (WE Score)
