IIM Ahmedabad: Earn An MBA — No Bachelor’s Degree Required
A B-school in India has updated its MBA admissions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to no longer require bachelor’s degrees.
At Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad, applicants will instead be selected based on a scale of 25 on the basis of Class 10, Class 12 marks, and the candidate’s work experience.
“The admission of the students will now be done on a scale of 25 on the basis of Class 10, Class 12 marks, and the candidate’s work experience,” according to an official notice by the institute. “The AR now will be computed on a scale of 25 (considering class 10 and class 12 marks as well as the candidate’s work experience) and the points will be pro-rated to 35.”
FORMULA FOR ADMISSIONS
IIM Ahmedabad will use the following formula to compute applicants’ Composite Score (CS): CS = 0.35* (Pro-rated AR Score/35) + 0.65* (Normalised overall CAT Score) Where Pro-rated AR Score = [(AR score computed by taking 0 points for a Bachelor’s degree)/25] * 35.
Additionally, the CAT committee has introduced admission criteria that allows applicants to take the CAT- 2021 exam without requiring any minimum percentage of marks in bachelor’s degree.
