IIM Indore Admission:ย For many MBA aspirants, getting into the esteemed PGP programme at IIM Indore is a dream. The program's demanding coursework, renowned instructors, and extensive alumni network serve as a springboard for outstanding careers. However, getting that acceptance calls for careful planning and thorough comprehension of the selection procedure.

Hence, we have given the complete eligibility criteria and admission process for the PGP at IIM Indore in this blog. We'll walk you through the requirements for qualifying, go over the three-step selection process, and provide insightful advice to ensure you succeed in every way.

IIM Indore Admission 2024: Eligibility Criteria

  • To be eligible for IIM Indore's PGP course, you must hold a bachelor's degree with at least 50% marks or an equivalent CGPA. This condition is 45% for SC/ST/PwD categories. So, this is a relief since it's not 60% like IIM Kozhikode.
  • One thing to keep in mind is that the bachelor's degree or equivalent qualification obtained by you should be of a minimum duration of 3 years after completing 12th grade.
So, that's it! This is the eligibility criteria for the course. Did you notice that there are no eligibility criteria for 10th and 12th marks here? But it's not so simple because there's a surprise further. Let's look at the further stages of selection.

This means that even if you score a 99 percentile overall, but a 79.9 percentile in one section, you would not stand a chance at IIM Indore. Now, if you check all these boxes, your profile will be considered for calculating the composite score that takes you to the interview at IIM Indore.

Now, this is a complex table for many applicants to understand. 4 components are deciding your component score: 10th & 12th score, CAT overall score, and Diversity Factor. Work experience is not given any weightage at this stage. This means they won't give any marks for work experience even if you have any.

The above table shows us that IIM Indore has a 59% weightage to 10th and 12th marks and only a 35% weightage to CAT scores.

The weightage considered for this composite score is different from that for the previous one. Firstly, they are not considering the 12th marks anymore. Secondly, the weightage given to 10th marks is suddenly declined. The weightage given to CAT scores is somewhat similar to the previous stage. Moreover, 50% weightage is given to your interview scores. A point to be noted here is that there are no gender or academic diversity points given at this stage.
