AfterCAT gets organizeed, IIM Sirmaur calculates a ‘Composite Score’ on the basis of which aspirants are the provideed admission. Only the aspirants completing eligibility criteria are considered for calculation of the composite score.

A lot of factors are involved in the ‘Composite Score’ so calculated. Let us take a look at how various factors are considered for calculation of composite score-

Scaled CAT Score- 

CAT Score of an aspirant carries the maximum weightage of 50% in the composite score for the PGP course. Scaled CAT Score is calculated by dividing the CAT Score (not percentile) with the highest possible score in CAT and then multiplying it by 50. For example, if an aspirant has scored 180 marks in CAT out of 300, the scaled CAT Score would be (180/300) * 50 = 30.

Mode of Scoring: Scaled CAT Score = (Aspirant’s CAT Score / Maximum Marks) X 50

Class XII Marks- 

Most of the IIMs do consider the past academic scores of aspirants and so is IIM Sirmaur. Class XII marks can carry a maximum weightage of 10 marks in the composite score. Various percentages in Class XII carry various scores in the composite score.

Here is table representing the scores given to various percentages in Class 12 in the composite score-

Graduation Marks- 

Aspirants can get a maximum of 10 marks in composite score on the basis of their graduation percentage. The Graduation score of the aspirant is normalized for each kind of stream (Engineering/Science/Commerce/Arts/Others).

IIM Sirmaur uses a mathematical formula for normalization, but the variable of that formula actually depends upon the graduation scores of other aspirants who have been shortlisted.

Therefore, aspirants, instead of figuring out their composite score on the basis of graduation, should just keep in mind that maximum of it can be 10 and this score is relative, not fixed.

Work Experience (WE)- 

Work Experience carries a maximum weightage of 20 marks in PGP. Aspirants must not forget that work experience up to July 31, 2017, will only be considered for calculation of the composite score.

Work experience points can be calculated by the following mode of scoring-

For PGP Program, where WE are more than 6 months then WE = Min (X-6)

Diversity Factor-

IIMs have introduced a new diversity factor for admission into their courses, on the basis of gender and academic background. Female aspirants will get 5 points for diversity factor for all kinds of courses, irrespective of their graduation stream.

Aspirants who have done their graduation in the academic branches mentioned below will get 5 points of diversification.
