It must be noted that the cut-off percentiles given in Table 1 are indicative.The actual cut-off percentiles for 2015-17 batch may vary from those mentioned in Table 1.  IIM Trichy will decide the number of candidates to be called for the PI & WAT for each of the above categories.
PI & WAT venues:

The Personal Interview and Written Analysis Test would be conducted at New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai and Kolkata. The exact date for PI & WAT will be communicated to the shortlisted candidates by IIM Udaipur who is co-ordinating for 2015-17 batch on behalf of the 6 new IIMs  (IIM-Kashipur,  IIM-Raipur,  IIM-Ranchi,  IIM-Rohtak,  IIM-Tiruchirappali  &  IIM-Udaipur)

In cases where candidates have been shortlisted by the six new IIMs as well as older IIMs, IIM Udaipur may collect the PI & WAT scores directly from the older IIMs. Such candidates will be informed in advance by IIM-Udaipur, and they need not appear for  PI & WAT.

B. Criteria that would be used to select candidates post Personal Interview (PI) and Written Analysis Test (WAT):

The following will be the parameters and corresponding weightages used to arrive at the composite score of the candidates, which will be used to prepare the final merit list for admissions.

Please note that the sub-parameters used under each head are also mentioned below, (for e.g., the WAT examines the candidate’s vocabulary, content of writing and writing skills). 

1. Written Analysis Test (15 per cent weightage): Vocabulary, content of writing and writing skills

2. Personal Interview (17 per cent weightage):
    a. Communication, attitude and personality
    b. Academic efforts and disposition
    c. Managerial and leadership attributes

    e. Overall presence

3. Work experience (based on relevance and quality of work experience and achievements, if any): 5 per cent weightage

4. Performance at Undergraduate level: 10 per cent weightage.

This performance shall be measured by multiplying the percentage marks scored by the weightage applicable to the discipline as shown below. 10 per cent of the score so obtained shall be considered in the overall evaluation. [UG performance score = (per cent score at UG * discipline weightage)* 0.10]

Differential weightages, as shown below, shall be applied to different disciplines to account for the degree of difficulty in scoring in different disciplines (for instance, scoring in Engineering disciplines is easier than in Arts) as well as to encourage diversity in the batch:

    a. Engineering / Technology: 0.6
    b. Science: 0.8
    c. Commerce / Economics / Management: 1.0
    d. Arts / Medicine (including Pharmacy): 0.9
