Admission Criteria Stage 1  The minimum overall CAT cut-off stays at the 85 percentile. The minimum cut-off for VARC remains at the 80 percentile. However, the cut-off for QA and DILR has gone up from 75 percentile to 80 percentile.

After removing the graduation marks component in 2022, IIM Bangalore has re-added it to the pre-PI selection criteria and given it a weight of 10%. The weight for 10th and 12th marks has come down from 15% each to 10%.

Graduation marks have also re-appeared in the post-PI shortlisting criteria, making up 5% of the total weight. The weight for 10th and 12th marks has come down from 10% to 5%.
Admission Criteria Stage 2 Candidates with equal to or more than three years of work experience (as of July 2023) will be given maximum points for work experience. But this is only valid during shortlisting for the WAT-PI round. In later rounds, panelists will also evaluate the quality of work experience for every candidate.

IIM Bangalore has assigned a 5% weight for gender diversity in the initial stages of the process. No explicit weight has been assigned for academic diversity.

The weight for the 'Personal Interview (PI)' component has gone up from 35% to 40% in 2023. This means your PI will be much more influential in the selection process.
