Our views – When it comes of admissions – It becomes very evident that securing more than 95 percentile does not guarantee a seat in IIM Ahmedabad. With a good profile, knowledge and the right attitude, even an 89.22 CAT percentile-r can get admission in IIM Ahmedabad.

A curious aspirant may not miss that the 'Lowest Salary offered' in IIM Ahmedabad is more than the 'Average Salary offered' in some of the top teir B-schools.
