Let us look at each phase in detail.

This is the first phase of the IIM Bodh Gaya MBA Admission process. As you can see in the below table, you will find cut-off percentile marks required for students of different categories to be eligible for the Personal Interview (PI) process. These cut-off percentiles are based on the three sections of the CAT exam as well as the overall CAT percentile.

PwD 32.5 25 25 40

The Admission Committee at IIM Bodh Gaya will determine the number of candidates to be invited for the Personal Interview (PI) process based on specific criteria for each category. However, if the actual number of shortlisted candidates is lower or higher than the required number of candidates for the PI process in each category, the minimum scores for both the overall CAT exam and its individual sections may be adjusted to achieve the desired number of candidates.

This year, the 9 IIMs (IIM Bodhgaya, IIM Jammu, IIM Kashipur, IIM Raipur, IIM Ranchi, IIM Sambalpur, IIM Sirmaur, IIM Trichy, and IIM Udaipur) have decided to implement a shared admission process called the CAP 2023 process. IIM Udaipur will coordinate this process. Along with the common process, IIM Bodh Gaya may also conduct a supplementary admission process known as SAP 2023. The candidate’s performance in both the CAP 2023 and SAP 2023 personal interviews will be taken into account when preparing the merit list.

Note: The academic scores and work experience information will be obtained from the CAP 2023 and SAP 2023 processes. Candidates are advised to fill in their details during CAP/SAP accurately. If it is discovered at a later stage that any candidate has provided false or fraudulent data/documents, their admission will be revoked without any refund.

Phase 2: Criteria for Preparing the Merit List

Candidates who have achieved a score equal to or higher than the Minimum Performance Requirement (MPR) in the Personal Interview (PI) will be included in the final merit list.
