IIM Shillong Shortlist Criteria

The selection of candidates for admission to PGP (2012-14) will be undertaken in 2 phases after CAT 2011. The first phase would involve shortlisting of candidates to be called for Group Discussion and/or Personal Interview (GD/PI). The second phase would involve the preparation of final merit list, based on which candidates will be offered admission to the said course. The process to be followed in each of these phases is as follows:

Phase 1.        Shortlisting for GD/PI

The minimum requirements to be followed for the shortlisting of candidates in this phase are as follows:

Category
CAT Percentile
SSC or Equivalent (%)
HSC or Equivalent (%)

*Normalized Score: Suppose m (%) denotes the average of the percentage marks obtained by all candidates in a disciplinary background and s (%) denotes the standard deviation of the corresponding percentage marks. If a candidate has x (%) marks, his/her normalized score is (x‐m)/s. These normalized scores so computed are comparable across disciplines.

A merit list based on the CAT 2011 overall percentile score will be prepared for all the candidates fulfilling the above criteria. Required number of candidates from this merit list will be called for GD/PI.

 

Phase 2:        Final Admission Offer

A score (M) will be calculated for each candidate using the following formula, which will be used for preparing the merit list for the final selection.

M = p1m1+p2m2+p3m3

Where,

m1 – mark obtained in GD;         p1 – weightage of GD marks (15 %)

m2– mark obtained in PI;            p2– weightage of PI marks (35 %)

m3 – total CAT score;                p– weightage of CAT absolute scores (50 %)
