IIM Ahmedabad will compute scores on a scale of 25, which will include Class 10, 12 marks, work experience, and the points will be pro-rated to 35.
NEW DELHI: The Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad has decided to do away with the bachelor’s degree component from the shortlisting criteria and to apply it uniformly to all the candidates. The IIM Ahmedabad has in August 2021 tweaked changes in eligibility criteria for the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2021.
As per the IIM Ahmedabad’s official website, “In view of the fact that for the last two years due to COVID-19, many universities could not conduct exams and based on varied criteria gave pass/promotion certificates. Considering this, the CAT Committee of 2021 had allowed candidates to take CAT 2021 without requiring any minimum percentage of marks in bachelor’s degree.”
