Admission Process: IIM Ahmedabad usually follows a two-step selection process. First, shortlisting based on CAT score and then AWT – Academic Writing Test and PI rounds for the shortlisted students. Candidates who fulfill the first stage of the admission criteria (CAT) are called for AWT and PI rounds. However, factors like academic cut-offs, past academic performance, relevant work experience, gender diversity etc. also play a major role in the final selection.
