IIM Shortlist 2023: Key Highlights

As the CAT 2022 results will be released in the first week of January 2023 all the IIMs will be on the way of releasing shortlists individually for the final selection round of PI and WAT one by one. After the conclusion of the personal interview and other rounds which are being conducted virtually, the respective IIMs prepare the final merit list based on these scores, work experience, CAT percentile, and diversity factors. These are the key highlights about IIM shortlisting process:

  • Majority of the IIMs have dropped their GD and WAT round and like last year will be conducting only PI round online.

  • IIM Tiruchirappalli will close the Common Admission Process (CAP) registration process in last week of January 2023.

  • Out of the four CAP 2023 participating baby IIMs - IIM Bodhgaya, IIM Jammu, IIM Sambalpur, IIM Sirmaur, the two –IIM Bodh Gaya and IIM Jammu will announce different shortlisting criteria for CAP and for their own selection round.

  • IIM Shillong, IIM Rohtak, IIM Amritsar, IIM Nagpur, IIM Visakhapatnam may not be participating in IIM CAP 2023 and hence will be conducting their own admission process probably.

IIM Shortlisting Criteria and Selection Process 2023

IIM shortlisting process is divided into three stages:

IIM Shortlisting Process Stages

Stage 1: Shortlisting of candidates on the basis of their CAT 2022 score

With CAT result announcement, the candidates will be invited to apply for PI round by each IIM on its official website. Candidates who meet the shortlist cut-off have to login through their CAT IDs to submit their name and CAT score.

Stage 2: Screening of candidates for Personal Interview

Stage 3: Calculation of CAT Composite Score and Final Selection in IIM

IIM Admission 2023-25: Waitlist Movement

IIM admission waitlist refers to the number of seats that move up from the waitlist for candidates for admission offer. While shortlisting the candidates or releasing the final admission list, IIMs also reserve one batch or slot of students on the waiting list.

  • If any candidate lets go of his or her seat then the student from the waiting listing can get admission.

  • Over the past years, students wait a long time for the waitlist of IIM Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta to move to get close to the admission chances.

  • There remains a high waitlist movement in IIM Calcutta and IIM Lucknow because selected candidates prefer IIMA or IIMB over these two.
