IIM Amritsar's response to our RTI –

What were the various parameters considered and their respective percent weightages for shortlisting candidates for PI-WAT round for admission into PGPM programme Batch of 2018 – 2020?

Firstly, an aspirant has to meet Minimum Eligibility Criteria of minimum CAT and sectional percentile. All the candidates who have applied to IIM Amritsar and also meet the minimum eligibility criteria were then eligible to be shortlisted for Writing Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI). However, actual cut off of candidates who received a call for interview may have been higher than the minimum eligibility criteria mentioned above.
