Alike IIML, Indian Institute of Management, Kozhikode has also come up with its admission policy for admissions 2011-13. IIMK would be short listing candidates based on the criteria they followed last year.

To begin with, candidates scoring minimum cut-off in each section as well as in the aggregate were selected in the initial pool.

 

From this pool, an index score was computed with 50 percent weight for the overall CAT score, 20 percent weight for academic performance in secondary school, 20 percent weight for higher secondary school and 10 percent weight for the work experience of the candidate.

 

The selection process involved two stages—Stage I and Stage II, during the last year. IIMK will be following the same criteria this year too.

 

Stage I
In the first stage of short listing of candidates based on their overall CAT scores, IIMK considered all the candidates meeting the minimum cut off and created a pool from which further short listing was done. The respective percentile cut-offs both sectional and overall for various categories for admission to 2010-12 batch was…

Stage II
In stage 2, an index score was computed with 50 percent weight for the overall CAT score, 20 percent weight for academic performance in secondary school, 20 percent weight for higher secondary school and 10 percent weight for the work experience of the candidate. The academic performance was taken as the percentage of marks told by the candidates and was consistent across the boards using the data available with IIMK for four years including the current year. In each category, the top ranking candidates based on this index score were called for further process. The short listed candidates were requested to register at IIMK’s website and complete the personal profile form online.

 

The following was the criteria used for final selection of candidate to PGP 2010-12 batch:

  1. Index score obtained in stage 2 of short listing for GD/PI - 50%
  2. Group discussion and social skills - 15%
  3. Personal interview - 25%
  4. Writing task (Essay) - 10%

 

The candidates were asked to write an extempore essay on a topic of general interest.
Topic was announced at the venue just before the writing task for which fifteen minutes time was allotted.
The cumulative score (considering the above categories) was computed and offers were made based on the rank obtained.

 

(Mandatory information: “IIMK is free to change the admissions criteria depending on policy changes, data obtained, analysis conducted etc for the PGP admissions at any point.”)

It’s a pity that every year MBA aspirants have to appear in multiple exams such as CAT,XAT etc. to apply to the top notch 20-30 B schools in the country. At an average every MBA aspirant spends around 20K just to write the MBA entrance exams excluding the the college form fee. Even when we are celebrating 50th year of IIM A we don’t have a centralized exam like GMAT for all the MBA institutes. Is it because no one wants to give away the chance to mint money or no one wants to open the Pandora’s Box. I request CoolAvenues to take some steps in this direction to high lite the miseries of a CAT aspirant. God save our country.

I totally agree with Nemidor. How much money should we continue to spend year after year?
