The six newly established Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) have released an updated list of percentile cutoffs to shortlist candidates for Personal Interview (PI) and Written Ability Test (WAT). The list of candidates for PI and WAT for the six new IIMs is expected to be announced at the official websites on Wednesday, January 22, 2014. As per sources, a second cut off list might be released at a later stage.

A total of eight candidates, all of whom are male and engineers, have acquired scores of 100 percentile in the Common Admission Test 2013 (CAT 2013). Ten candidates have acquired scores of 99.99 percentile. The Results of CAT 2013, which is one of the most prestigious examinations in India for admission into the IIMs as well as other premier management institutes, were declared on Tuesday, January 14, 2014.

The new IIMs are expected to invite applications from 10,000 candidates to take part in the combined PI and WAT process termed “Common Admission Process” (CAP), as per officials of IIM-Tiruchirappalli. Altogether, there are 800 seats available in the new IIMs. IIM-Tiruchirappalli is expected to conduct CAP 2014 for the six newer IIMs of Kashipur, Tiruchirappalli, Udaipur, Rohtak, Raipur and Ranchi.

CAT 2013 was conducted over a 20 day period from Wednesday, October 16 to Monday, November 11, 2013. 115 more seats have been added in 2013 across the 13 IIMs. The total number of seats in all the IIMs is 3, 335 at present.
