Indian Institute Of Management Rohtak (IIM - R)

Admission Policy 2017©

This document summarizes the approach of IIM Rohtak to preparing the Admission List for its 8th PGP Batch (2017-19) (The approximate batch size is 150-160). IIM Rohtak (IIM-R) reserves the right to modify any part of this document including the various criteria and cut offs mentioned at any time till the actual admission process for the batch is completed.

The basic objective of IIM-R’s admission process is to identify meritorious candidates for admission under each category of admission, viz., General, OBC, SC, ST and PWD/DAP. While merit is the prime consideration, the Institute recognizes a possibility of skewed student structure in favour of male gender and engineering and related subjects at graduation in the normal course. Hence, it strives to ensure a better balance in opportunities among different subject streams and genders. It is also part of IIM Rohtak’s approach to duly recognize academic consistency and industrial experience.

The admission process of IIM-R consists of (a) CAT, (b) shortlisting for Personal Appearance (PA) process, (c) conducting the PA process composed of Personal Interview (PI) and Written Analysis (WA) as well as any other component to be decided, and (d) preparing the Final Selection List (FSL) based on CAT score, PA score and profile score including Work Experience (WE) score as assessed during the PA process, score for Past Academic Performance (PAP) and any other criterion included.

A. Criteria for Shortlisting for PA Process

1. Only candidates meeting the cut-off criteria listed in Table 1 for CAT 2016 score and the CAT 2016 component scores in respective categories will be considered for shortlisting.

Table 1

CAT Component Cut Off Percentile
Total 85 75 60 60 60
VARC 80 70 45 40 40
DILR 80 70 45 40 40
QA 80 70 45 40 40

2. From the candidates meeting the cut-off criteria in Table 1, only candidates meeting the cut-off criteria listed in Table 2 for X, XII and Under-Graduate (UG) reported marks in respective categories will be considered for shortlisting.

Table 2

Qualification Cut Off Marks %
X 70 65 60 55 55
XII 65 60 55 50 50
UG 60 55 50 45 45

After processing through Table 1 and Table 2, what will be remaining are the candidates eligible for shortlisting. For each of these eligible candidates, the following (weighted) scores (Table 3) will be computed.

Table 3

Item %Score Maximum Score
CAT 2016 Total* (Candidate’s Score) x 1.50 150
CAT 2016 QA * (Candidate’s Score) x 0.50 50
CAT 2016 DILR (Candidate’s Score) x 0.50 50
CAT 2016 VARC * (Candidate’s Score) x 0.50 50
X Marks (Candidate’s Score) x 0.20 20
XII Marks (Candidate’s Score) x 0.30  
UG Marks (Candidate’s Score) x 0.40  
Work Experience** Candidate’s Score  
Female** Candidate’s Score  
Non-Engineering** Candidate’s Score  
Grand Total 600

* Scores scaled to 100               ** Assigned scores

For scoring the Work Experience, the following table (Table 4) will be used.

Table 4

Experience in Months Score
Less than 12 0
12-23 40
24-35 60
36-47 20
48-59 10
60 & above 0

To ensure gender diversity, female candidates will be assigned a grace score of 75 as given in Table 3. Similarly, to ensure subject diversity, candidates having a non-engineering background at graduation will be assigned a grace score of 75 as indicated in Table 3.

The eligible candidates are then ranked on the basis of their actual Grand Total Score (Table 3) and top specified number will be called for the PA process above a required percentile.

The six new IIMs coordinating the PA process 2017, viz., Kashipur, Raipur, Ranchi, Rohtak, Trichy and Udaipur, are together likely to call candidates for the PA process about 10-12 times (or more if decided so later) their total number of seats. However, in case any of the six older IIMs (Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta, Indore, Kozhikode and Lucknow) are willing to share their PA scores with the six new IIMs, wherever IIM Rohtak’s (and other five new IIMs) shortlist is common with the sharing older IIMs, the common candidates will not be required to appear for PA process separately with IIM Rohtak (and five other new IIMs). The common candidates will be intimated in due course of time, on the names of older IIMs sharing PA scores with IIM Rohtak (and five other new IIMs).

B. Preparing Final Shortlisted Candidates (FSL)

A weight of 40% will be assigned to CAT Total Score (Scaled to 100). The following scores or weights are assigned during the PA process: PI and WA 30; and WE, PAP and any other component that may be included 30. Minimum cut off may be applied to PA components.

C. Offer Acceptance Fee & Withdrawal

A candidate receiving admission offer from IIM Rohtak (IIM-R) and Accepting the offer within the stipulated date needs to send along with Offer Acceptance (OA) an Offer Acceptance Amount (OAA) of Rs. 60,000/ -. A candidate can subsequently withdraw the OA within the withdrawal date specified in the Offer Letter (OL). In this case, OAA will be refunded after deducting processing charges as per norms. If a candidate registers for the programme, his/her OAA will be adjusted against Term I Fee. In the event of withdrawal from the Programme after registration, NO refund of OAA or Term Fee will be made.
