IIM Visakhapatnam Admission 2023-25 Phase I

The candidates who had selected IIM Visakhapatnam as one of their choices at the time of filling up the CAT 2022 application form will be considered for the PI round if they meet the CAT 2022 cutoff percentile for admission. Candidates who are shortlisted will then need to confirm their interest in admission to the PGP course at IIMV and for this purpose, they will have to fill out an online application form which will be made available after CAT 2022 result.

The initial phase of selection takes the candidate’s CAT score into consideration and selection is done only if the candidate has secured the minimum sectional as well as overall cut-off set by IIM Visakhapatnam.

Minimum Percentile Requirements for the First Shortlist


If the candidates have qualified for the cut-off mentioned above, they must re-confirm their interest in participating in the selection criteria of the institute in order to be considered. On confirming the candidature, applicants will receive a mail from the institute inviting them to participate in the selection process.

IIM Visakhapatnam 2023-25 Admission Phase II

In the second stage, IIM Visakhapatnam will consider the candidates' percentage scores in Class 10 and 12 boards. Apart from that, the institute gives certain weightage to work experience acquired by a candidate. Candidates who have pursued professional courses including Chartered Accountancy, Company Secretary, and Cost Accounting will be given additional weightage.

The score of work experience for every eligible candidate is calculated out of 8 using the following formula:

  • Work Experience = 8x/36 (if 0 <x <36) OR
  • Work Experience = 8 (if x >= 36)

Here, x is the number of months counted up to the date of release of CAT notification of the respective year. The work experience calculated with the help of the above formula is multiplied by the quality of work experience score that is given on a 5-point scale.

The quality of work experience is given by the interviewer during the personal interview and the score evaluated for work experience is considered for the final selection. Candidates can apply either for weightage through work experience or through professional course weightage. A candidate will not be considered for both components.

Candidates are shortlisted for the next round of selection on the basis of the score achieved by them in different components.
