The admission process of IIM Raipur consists of:

  • Short listing Candidates for Personal Appearance (PA) process
  • Conducting the PA process. PA process is composed of Written Analysis Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI), and
  • Preparing the admission list based on CAT score, WAT & PI score and Profile score as indicated in following tables.

The IIM Raipur Admission Committee will decide the number of candidates to be called for PA process on the basis of short listed merit list prepared for each category. However, if the actual number of shortlisted candidates were found to be less (more) than the required number of candidates to be called for PI/WAT category-wise, then the overall as well as section wise minimum score would be reduced (increased) to get the desired number of candidates.

The Nine new IIMs (Kashipur, Raipur, Ranchi, Rohtak, Trichy, Udaipur, Amritsar, Bodhgaya and Sambalpur) have decided to adopt a common process of WAT& PI to be coordinated this year by IIM Rohtak. In case any of the older IIMs (Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta, Indore, Kozhikode and Luck now) are willing to share their WAT& PI scores with the six new IIMs, the common candidates who have applied to new IIMs, need not to appear for WAT& PI process separately, else they have to appear. The common candidates will be intimated the names of older IIMs sharing WAT & PI scores with new IIMs in due course of time.
