IIM Tiruchirapalli is amongst the most reputed Indian Institutes of Management in India and takes candidates with high CAT Scores. Selection process is done on the basis of CAT score, academic background as well as work experience of candidates.

IIM Tiruchirapalli Selection Criteria

IIM Tiruchirapalli is one of the new IIMs and has made quite a name for itself in its few years of operations. From a remarkable curriculum to excellent placements, IIM Tiruchirapalli is not counted amongst the top IIMs in India. The admission procedure of this institute is more or less the same as the selection criteria of IIMs after CAT.

CAT 2019 result has been released on January 4th, 2020 along with the list of CAT 2019 toppers!

In order to apply for the institute, you will have to appear for the CAT exam. Another thing that factors during admissions apart from the CAT score is the reservation policy and the number of seats at IIMs.

Like other IIMs, IIM Tiruchirapalli also shortlists students on the basis of CAT score along with candidate’s performance at various academic levels. Work experience is also evaluated in case the candidates have a work history. There are various levels of selection and the first level is the CAT score screening. Shortlisted candidates are called for the next level of selection process i.e. Writing Analysis Test (WAT), Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interview (PI).
