IIM Ranchi PGDHRM Cutoff

If we talk about the IIM Ranchi PGDHRM cut-off, there is no explicit CAT cut-off criteria laid out by the Institute for its PGDHRM program. However, IIM Ranchi goes by a composite scoring method for determination of its cut-off.

The admission is granted to the PGDHRM program based on a candidate’s performance in the Common Admission Test (CAT), Written Ability Test (WAT), Personal Interview (PI), as well as his/her profile.
