The wait for IIM Ahmedabad aspirants is finally over! The Indian Institute for Management Ahmedabad has released its final shortlist results, marking the culmination of a rigorous selection process.

This blog delves into everything you need to know, including expected waitlist movement, composite score analysis, and key upcoming dates.

IIM Ahmedabad Final Results Important Dates

  • April 16, 2024: IIM Ahmedabad final results/shortlist declared.
  • May-end 2024 (tentative): Last date for admitted students to confirm their acceptance and pay the deposit.
  • Early June 2024 (tentative): First waitlist movement might occur around this time. Subsequent movements can happen periodically until all seats are filled.

IIM Ahmedabad Selection Process 2024

IIM Ahmedabad follows a multi-stage selection process for its flagship PGP 2024-26 program. Here's a breakdown:

  1. CAT Shortlisting: Based on their CAT scores (percentile ranks in Verbal Ability & Reading, Quantitative Ability, and Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning sections), candidates are shortlisted for the next stage.
  2. AWT/WAT & PI: Shortlisted candidates take the Analytical Writing Test (AWT) and appear for a Personal Interview (PI). The AWT assesses written communication skills, while the PI evaluates a candidate's holistic profile, including work experience, academics, and leadership potential.
  3. Composite Score & Final Selection: A composite score is calculated based on weightage assigned to CAT score, AWT/WAT performance, and PI evaluation. Candidates with the highest composite scores receive admission offers.

Note: IIM Ahmedabad doesn't conduct a Group Discussion (GD) as part of the selection process.

IIM Ahmedabad Waitlist Movement (Expected)

For candidates who haven't received an admit directly, there's still hope! IIM Ahmedabad maintains a waitlist, and seats may open up if admitted students choose to forgo their offers. Predicting IIM Ahmedabad waitlist movement with absolute certainty is impossible. However, analyzing past trends can offer valuable insights.
