IIM Kozhikode Eligibility & Selection Criteria for PGP 2016-2018

IIMK adopts a two‐stage selection process and accordingly these selection criteria are applied in two
stages. The first stage process applies to all eligible candidates (who appear for CAT 2015 and registered
online for admission to IIMK) to determine those qualifying candidates who will be called for personal
interview (PI).  

1. All candidates meeting the requirements mentioned in the Table below are eligible for consideration to the stage 1

CategoryCAT Score PercentileSectional PercentileSSC/X Class Percentage**HSC/ XII Class Percentage**
OBC (NC)80706060
ST/ DA55405555

2. From all the eligible candidates who register with IIMK a short‐list of candidates will be prepared based on
the Aggregate Index Score. This score is computed based on the performance in CAT 2015, Class XII and
Bachelor’sdegree performance and other traits relevant for management education. Originals (and copies) of
all certificates (academics/ reservation category/ experience) must be produced for verification at the time of
PI.  Any candidate failing to produce any of the original certificates will be disqualified from attending the PI.
The Aggregate Index Score calculation details are given in the subsequent paragraphs.

a. CAT Index Score:  

Performance in CAT is an important input in the admission process. Candidates should note that it is
important to perform well in each section of the test. Scaled Scores from both the sections (with
equal weightages) of CAT 2015 will go into the computation of the CAT Index Score. CAT Index Score
will carry a weight of 75%.

b. Graduation Index Score:

i. Table shows the computation of the Graduate Index Score. For those who completed their
Bachelor’s degree the percentage marks reported in their marks/grade sheet will be considered.

ii. Percentage marks for incomplete Bachelor’s degree applicants are based on their available marks,
certified by a head of the institution. The Principal/Head of the Department/Registrar/Director of the
university/institution has to certify that those are the latest available marks, without which the
candidate become ineligible for the graduation index score.

c. Class XII Index Score:

The percentage of marks obtained in HSC/Class XII would be the aggregate marks of all subjects
that appear in the marks sheet or grade sheet, irrespective of whether the Board considers
them for calculation of percentage.The method of allotting score for HSC/ Class XII percentage
based on aggregate marks is given in Table below:
