Please visit: https://www.iimcal.ac.in/programs/mba for more information on the MBA Programme of the Institute.

Minimum Academic Eligibility for Admission to MBA Programme

A candidate must hold a Bachelor’s Degree, with at least 50% marks or equivalent CGPA [45% in case of the candidates belonging to Scheduled Caste (SC), Scheduled Tribe (ST) and Persons with Disability (PWD) categories], awarded by any of the Universities incorporated by an Act of the central or state legislature in India or other educational institutions established by an Act of Parliament or declared to be deemed as a University under Section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956, or possess an equivalent qualification recognized by the Ministry of HRD, Government of India. The percentage of marks obtained by the candidate in the bachelor’s degree would be calculated based on the practice followed by the University/Institution from where the candidate has obtained the degree. In case a candidate is awarded grades/CGPA instead of marks, the conversion of grades/CGPA to percentage of marks would be based on the procedure certified by the University/ Institution from where bachelor’s degree has been obtained. In case the University/ Institution does not have any scheme for converting CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by dividing the candidate’s CGPA by the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying the result with 100.

Candidates appearing for the final year of bachelor’s degree/equivalent qualification examination and those who have completed degree requirements and are awaiting results can also apply. If selected, such candidates will be allowed to join the programme provisionally, only if he/she submits a certificate latest by June 30, 2020 from the Principal/Registrar of his/her University/College/Institute (issued on or before June 30, 2020) stating that the candidate has completed all the requirements for obtaining the bachelor’s degree/equivalent qualification on the date of the issue of the certificate.

A candidate who has not received his/her graduation results at the time of registration will have to produce certificates and mark sheets in original together with the photocopies as soon as the respective University/Institute publishes the results, but NOT LATER THAN DECEMBER 31, 2020, failing which his/her registration as a student of IIM Calcutta will be automatically cancelled and he/she will be required to withdraw from the MBA forthwith. Any candidate who submits University Mark sheets which do not clearly indicate that he/she has passed the Bachelor’s Degree course or equivalent, and also submits Provisional Certificate from an affiliated College/Institute would, in addition, be required to produce an authorization certificate from the University stating that such an affiliated College/Institute is authorized/empowered to issue such a certificate on behalf of the University.

IIM Calcutta reserves its right to verify eligibility at various stages of the selection process. Applicants should note that mere fulfilment of minimum eligibility criteria will not ensure shortlisting by IIM Calcutta at the various stages of the admissions process.

Criteria for short listing and final selection for the MBA Programme

Short-listing for Personal Interview (PI) and Written Ability Test (WAT)

Candidates will be short listed based on CAT 2019 score, past academic performance, and other criteria provided below.

Stage I: Minimum CAT percentile cut-offs to be considered for PI and WAT process

Stage 1 requirements of securing minimum section-wise and overall percentiles in CAT 2019 to be considered for short-listing are as per Table 1 below:

Table 1: Minimum requirements of CAT percentiles for Stage I

Category Section – I
Quantitative Ability (QA)
Section – II
Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DILR)
Section – III
Verbal Ability (VA)
Total Percentile
OPEN ≥ 75 ≥ 80 ≥ 80 ≥ 85
NC-OBC ≥ 65 ≥ 65 ≥ 70 ≥ 75
EWS ≥ 65 ≥ 65 ≥ 70 ≥ 75
SC ≥ 60 ≥ 60 ≥ 65 ≥ 70
ST ≥ 55 ≥ 55 ≥ 55 ≥ 65
PWD ≥ 55 ≥ 55 ≥ 55 ≥ 65

Candidates securing the above mentioned minimum percentile in CAT 2019 in respective category will only be considered for calculation of their composite score in Stage II (described below). Please note that the actual section-wise and overall percentile of a short-listed candidate may be much higher than the above mentioned criteria as it will depend upon the number of candidates to be called for interview (CFI) in each category.

Stage II: Short-listing for PI and WAT process

The Composite Score is calculated by computing the percentage of marks as detailed in Table 2 & 3 and assigning weights to different components as detailed in Table 4.

Method of allotting points for aggregate percentage secured in Class 10 and Class 12 is based on Table 2 below:

Table 2: Points for Class 10 and Class 12 marks

Class 10 Marks (in %) Points Class 12 Marks (in %) Points
≥80 10 ≥80 15
≥ 75 and < 80 8 ≥ 75 and < 80 12
≥ 70 and < 75 6 ≥ 70 and < 75 9
≥ 65 and < 70 4 ≥ 65 and < 70 6
≥ 60 and < 65 2 ≥ 60 and < 65 3
< 60 0 < 60 0

Computation of percentages in Class 10 and 12

For computing the percentage of marks obtained in Class 10 and Class 12, the aggregate marks of all subjects that appear in the mark sheet/grade sheet would be considered irrespective of whether the Board considers them for calculation of percentage or not.

Table 3: Points for Bachelor’s Degree marks

Bachelor’s Degree Marks (in %) Points
≥ 60 15.00
≥ 55 and < 60 10.00
≥ 50 and < 55 05.00
< 50 02.50

Computation of percentages at Bachelor’s level

Bachelor’s Degree completed

The percentage of marks obtained by the candidate in the bachelor’s degree would be calculated based on the practice followed by the university/institution from where the candidate has obtained the degree. In case a candidate is awarded grades/CGPA instead of marks, the conversion of grades/CGPA to percentage of marks would be based on the procedure certified by the university/ institution from where bachelor’s degree has been obtained. In case the university/ institution does not have any scheme for converting CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by dividing the candidate’s CGPA by the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying the result with 100.

Bachelor’s Degree not completed

The aggregate percentage of marks obtained in all the years/semesters at the time of filling-in the CAT application form will only be considered for awarding points as per Table 3 above.

Dual Degree

The percentage of marks to be considered will be as specified in the degree certificate.

Allocation of weights to different components and methods for deriving composite scores for each category is based on Table 4 below:

Table 4: Components and corresponding weights for deriving composite scores

Components Weights Method of Calculation
CAT 2019 Score 56 (A/B) x 56
Class 10 marks 10 As per Table 2 above
Class 12 marks 15 As per Table 2 above
Bachelor’s Degree marks 15 As per Table 3 above
Gender Diversity Factor 4 4 points will be awarded to promote gender diversity
Total 100

A = Candidate’s Total CAT 2019 score
B = Maximum CAT 2019 Score

After deriving the composite scores, composite cut-off are decided in each category for short-listing the candidate in Stage II selection process. The number of candidates to be short-listed for PI and WAT process would be the sole discretion of the Institute depending upon the batch size of the in-coming batch.

Stage III: Criteria for Final Selection for the MBA Programme

The composite score for final selection is derived as per the criterion based on Table 5. The corresponding weights against each parameter is listed in Table 5 which are used for preparation of category-wise merit list.

Table 5: Components and weights for final selection for the MBA Programme

Components Weights
CAT 2019 Score 30
Personal Interview (PI) 48
Written Ability Test (WAT)* 10
Point awarded for Academic Diversity at Bachelor’s level for Non-Engineering degree 04

Total 100

* Because of the health hazards due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and following government advisories, the Institute has decided not to consider the weightage given for WAT for the final selection of MBA 2020-22 batch. This is to maintain the fairness and consistency of the admissions process for all candidates appeared for interview in-person or through online platform.

The immersion programme helps future business leaders hone their skills while tackling real world challenges. Individuals also make time to participate in business case competitions, branding exercises and self-interest career advancement clubs.
