PGP INDORE 2024-26 Batch Admission Procedure for CAT Applicants

IIM Indore

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 2024-26 Batch.

Latest Update: IIMs will be announced the CAT 2024 exam date in November 24, 2024.  Detailed notification for CAT 2024 may be released in August 2024.

Eligibility criteria for CAT 2024 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.

The percentage of marks obtained by the candidate in the bachelor’s degree would be calculated  based  on  the  practice  followed  by  the  university/institution  from  where the candidate has obtained the degree. In  case the candidates are awarded grades/CGPA instead  of  marks,  the  conversion of  grades/CGPA to percentage of marks would  be based on the procedure certified by  the university/ institution from where they have obtained the bachelor's degree.

Candidates appearing for the final year bachelor’s degree/equivalent qualification examination and those who have completed the degree requirements and are awaiting results can also apply. Such candidates must produce a certificate from the principal/head of the department/registrar/director of the institution/university certifying that they are currently in the final year/ awaiting final results and have secured at least 50% marks or equivalent (45% for SC/ST/PDW) based on latest available grades/marks. Such candidates if selected will be allowed to join the programme provisionally only if they submit a certificate latest by June 2024.
