  10. SIR i wanted info about any 4 or 5 years degree level course or programme on managment(excluding the ipm course) in any business school india and if any such course doesnt exist than please give me LIST of top institutes where BBA course is offered

    • No Doubt…. Next it will be More Prestigious Exam In India Almost Equal to IIT so Obviously Cut-off will be increase

  11. Wat wud u people propose if somebody is already doing BTEK from NIT Kurukshetra and has been selected here??
    Dnt worry abt the interests..only wat course wud be better for a person whos equally inclined towards both ares.

  12. You should definitely join. Cos its not an opportunity you’ll get often. I have taken opinions from a lot of people and all say take it. my advice. take it!

    • Hey Ameya!
      The issue remains the same- 5 years from now, we’ll all be competing against CA+MBA or Engineers+MBA of their ‘popular’ flagship program in the placements. And at the time when the best B schools in the world are making experience compulsory for MBA programs, I guess IPM is lot more than just risky!

  13. hi
    are the shortlisted students planning to do any distant learning program during your 1st 3 years in iim indore to obtain a degree??
    i am also selected for ipm but i am confused whether to go for it or not??

    • this is unique initiative by iim indore,in the coming years more iim will be coming with this integrated course`its ur personal choice to go for distant learning course,btw if u do best in this course u will be overwhelmed by the job prospects,every course whether gud or bad have a beginning,a story for u ,an engg exam started 8 or 9 yrs back apprx over 1 lakh ppl sat for it as ppl were in dilemma as u r just now,in 2011 over 13 lakh ppl sat for the exam n the exam is AIEEE,hope u got my point,all the best

    • Hey pooja! great to know that you are selected! Congrats! regarding your dilemma, think over and take an informed call. Assess all the possibilities and weigh your risks, at the end of the day, no matter who opposes, if you are convinced about the reach and success of the proposed course, and if your heart says this is where you have to be, then none of the other’s comments or questions would be of any significance.

      So wishing you my best in this regard
      Decide for your own self patiently
      Personally this is indeed a great opportunity
      So hoping for an optimistic response from you too,….

  14. i am in my grade 12 now studying PCM. I would like to know how the program is going on and about the admission dates for intake of students in the upcoming year 2012

  15. Hi anyone got selected from Chennai area? i also request candidates who got selected to share info on bank guarantee. Which bank is willing to issue and what are the collateral accepted, asap.

  16. Does anyone have the link to a pdf that gave a detailed explanation date/month-wise about the programme? It was one of the links in the AT/PI shortlisted access page. When one opened their account at the AT/PI shortlist thingy then it was right next to the ‘congratulations’ bit. I think it was labelled ‘Programme Information’ or something like that. It had a huge table giving info about the programme. Not the 6 – 7 columns wala. It was around 2-3 pages long.

  17. kya yaaar my AT went so so okey types although interview was good…not much umeeedd but still saale aaj nikaal dete result to better tha…fish man…chalo 14 hi sai…

  18. well m getting jitters after reading the letter frm the director…..where he sayz dat the course cannot be channelized for placements…..m called for the pi n at but last moment m doubtful…cuz 19 lakhz is a hard earned amount….please comment….besides plz suggest material for studyin…2 dayz to go….ol da bestt to ol…!!!

    • to correct you in short its not 19lakhs it is 25lakhs. if u include 7000per month hostel fees. and the bank can support u max of 15lakhs and u have to pay 15000 per month as an interst.

    • well u be newer uve gotto pay for ur lodging n ol….was jus tellin u abt d programme fee…wat is more important a question is are we going to be placed in a way to meet our xpectations….@lst to be able to pay back the loan…

    • @gaurav i waz wondering why do you exaggerate so much and argue by putting sum news buff and dont admit ur mistakes. seriously man if u are 18 behave like an 18 not like a kiddo.and none has ever mentioned you as fake. regarding education all is gr8 and every work is gr8. so plz stop assuming airs and plz dnt draw long bows. or else am afraid it may end in fiasco and i felt gantok and shikim are same were shikim z the state and gantok is the capital. and plz dnt play ur words on others sentiment cz the disaster has been high and is equally painful.

  27. Hi….. rahul, neha, sameya, plz can i get any one of urs contact number. i need to discus director’s letter with u all guys. yeah will u plz call me on this no. 08051978575

    • Yeah Rahul, although the program schedule looks very promising, but what good would it be if it isn’t executed well?
      Anyway, Any idea as to when does the venue comes out? If they’ve already come out, what’s the venue in Delhi? Plus, please post the link!

  28. rahul yaar if i were at your place i would have gone with the first option..but still it would be fun if we get through this and be a part of this thing…i am going through the maths material i got at the time of my cpt…i think that would be enough..and for english..just going through bbc of my class 12th..dont have much time at this stage so i’m relying more on PI rather than AT..!!
    you tell..where in delhi..which school??
    any of your friends who got through..??

      • Right! He said many unprofessional things and said he has taken 100’s of interviews right? You are an HRM manager gaurav, aren’t you? I was from dav school and none of my friends made through it. you r saying that you wouldn’t join this program.. if you’d be doin CA. i see you already have CA books 😉

        • Hey rahul
          I appreciate the director coming out with all this. The program structure is really well planned and a lot of thought has been put into making it. We will definitely be amazing managers at the end of the course.:)

    • well i am not shortlisted but this true you are really fake from the beginning or you wer trying to divert the masses from this competition so that you can have the cream. Good shot GAURAV SEGAL. 😀 yet all the best

  29. yipeee…!!!
    got shortlisted…does any one know how many OBC candidates have been shortlisted…becoz i am really tensed about the pi!!!!
    is there any chance of me getting selected????/

  30. just out of curiosity Saumya n Rahul…you guys have done so well already in CA..why are you switching to this course..i am quite curious to know…:-oo

    • Cuz my plan was to pursue CAT after CA.. and this opportunity is better as this is 5 year management education.. That’s why. Are you doing any preparation for AT or PI?

  31. my centre is Delhi too…hey where in delhi any idea…and do inform if you get any mail or sms…its gonna be fun now…competition at its apex.. GAME ON..!!!

    • hey

      so have dey asked for any conformation n have u denied it
      plz reply guys

  32. How many of you have have received the mail or text message?
    Cos i haven’t received. And it says if you don’t receive by 19th we are supposed to call them .

  33. Congrats to everyone who’s been selected. And to everyone who haven’t hard luck. I’ve been through it and know how it feels 🙁
    All the best for the aptitude test and interview and give it you best shot cos its now or never.:)

  34. They have shown their narrow mindedness…..SAT was important but they simply ignored it…… result is only based on CBSE
    i am a national player of baseball and gave SAT SCORED 740 in MATHS and got 91% in 10th 90% in 11th and becozz i played baseball in 12th i got 80% in 12th…….and also gave SAT after that…I AM going america in few months f*** IIM

    • What was ur overall sat score? They weren’t just looking 4 math sat scores, scholastic accomplishments matter too. Which uni r u going too in USA and for which course? good luck 🙂

  35. Here is new celebration of IIM

    Hindi Divas Celebration….
    First time i was shocked what i read then i understand what they wrote is in hindi i.e

  36. whn r dey gonna actually declare d result yaar ?
    wt d heck is dis..v r wastin r tym sittin refreshin d page ..its 2 mch nw..enufff

  37. Hey Saumya mine is working fine so no uploading as of yet…
    And Rahul your dad’s skepticism is understandable but is incongruent in this case. Such fraud’s happen at pvt. universities and colleges.So chill..!!
    The possible reason for delay could be server problem ; difficulty in processing the applications or NON-CURABLE CONSTIPATION…hahaha
    And SAUMYA I thought you wouldn’t return…:-p

    • Hahaha Saumya is back..:P anyways, jokes apart, i still cant understand what kind of problem is this.. no problem can take 4-5 days.. it was supposed to be out on 13th.. its so frustrating!! 🙁

      • I have heard of the same case.. But don’t know much details.. Someone put request of applications for a post and just collected application money delaying date of result and just went off with money.. I think this is the same case may be

    • they are celebrating all the festivals in there like inagruation and book fair
      so they are not getting time
      whats their priority festivals and fairs or new course and future of pupils waiting for the F*****g List
      I m freaked out
      if they didnt open it today i will quit that freaking program
      they are playing with our precious time and organizing book fairs and using our money i.e. 1000*5000 = 50,00,000 rupees
      anyone can organise fairs

  38. Shortlist for IPM 2011 will be announced latest by September 19, 2011

    Because tomorrow is Sunday and so no work and today is Saturday means less work.. So we can start our countdown from 19th September onwards

    • Right saumya.. this is simply horrible!! they could not work on weekdays, how can we expect them to work on weekends? even i am thinking to continue my course.. its no point wasting my precious time like this. they don’t know time management, how would they teach us management……

  39. yeah…….. u r right rahul
    that is their monopoly…..
    they can declare even after 18sept also…
    Y will they care for us. we are in tension nt they

  40. now againa new date…17th september…
    hey notice the improvement in communicatiuon…”latest by 17th September”…
    Its has been a learning experience so far…without even getting there I have already learned so much.Chapters learnt so far:
    NAME OF BOOK-> “IIM-I;WE CARE FOR YOU..( really think so:-p)
    1.How to create anxiety for new course.
    2.How to pretend that undergrads are respected…lol
    3.How to make people anxious and eventually hysterical.
    4.Its not what you are told,Its about what you get.
    5.Common its an with it or goodbye.
    6.Telephones and Mobiles work only when attended..(haha fooled..)
    and lasatly..
    and latly.

  41. This is pathetic, they are playing with us….I have given SAT thats why i have been waiting for this list…..tomorrow’s gonna be the 3rd day.

  42. cant cross all my fingers anymore..THE MIDDLE ONE IS RISING AGAIN n AGAIN….lol..
    IIM-I…way too cool..le

  43. GUYS, its nothing worth wasting time over this nonsense attitude of iimi. unki working aisi chalu hai jaise ke koi local common college. leave it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    there no meaning having trust in these people. abhi aisa hai to recruitment ke waqt kya hoga??????????????
    THINK ABOUT IT………………………..

  44. haha…so its clear now…be it home or IIM-I NO ONE TAKES A XII PASS SERIOUSLY….haaha…what a pathetic way of functioning…

        • Absolutely.. This reckless & carefree attitude is not in the best interests of IIM-I. They must learn to value our time.. Are ek baar me likh dete ki shortlist will be declared on xyz date at xyz time.. har din thora thora time increase kar rahe hain.. Its ridiculous to say the least.. :/

  45. I think the reason for the delay is the inclusion of extra carriculars! If it was only on marks it would be extremely easy like in cat . But here it cannot be software based so every application will have to carefully examined. So lets wait. 🙂

        i really agree with you SAUMYA.
        thats not the way to timepass
        these premier institutes should be more fluent and should work effectively.
        whatever the reason is you should not play with others time i have been on the pc for 2 days and no result
        m father commented that thats not the way, there is no time management AND THEY ARE GONNA GIVE MANAGEMENT DIPLOMA



      • so whats the bet
        is there any chance of persons above eighty and below ninety getting selected because its too frustrating to get these % because you r on the slit of glass
        so any person with these percentages wil get selected or not??????

        i got a rank in jee but not gone as it was not my choice to get in other field than any other branch than aeronautical
        so i dropped out and found this course interesting
        i have a hope i got selected if not then aeronautics is waiting for me in iits

        i was not that afraid even during jee results as i was confident but due to one subject i got kicked out of 90’s

        • so any chances of 80’s candidates
          which % category will be in majority
          pls make guesses its our last chance then all top 850 will be busy for next 10 days mugging up the facts and freaking out that only 14% of then are getting selected

          • May be cut off will be 90% and above with extra curricular.. But who knows may be they take in 80’s. If they take 80’s people, then overall competition will favor students with 90+ marks in final selection.. 80’s students need to work hard then.. So they’ll make it somehow justifiable.. Just wait for 4 hours or may be till tomorrow

  46. Its so saddening to witness such unconscionable attitude of IIM-I.
    Hugely disappointed.
    It seems really hard to get in especially after getting a hint of the number of applications received..would 92% in both X and XII be enough…tick tick tick..that’s the sound of the clock running for me..!!

  47. Sir,
    I checked out the IIM website.According to the selection criteria which has been updated on 19th sept..they say that selection for AT and PI will be based on only 10th and 12th performance..there is no mention of any scholastic achievements there…can you confirm that??
    Secondly i am currently studying in class 12 and have secured 96% in 10th boards…around what % marks in 12th will ensure my selection for AT nd PI??


  49. please anyone tell me how to check the application status it has upated till 6 september but not showing my application form recieved status….

  50. please anyone tell me how to check the application status it has upated toill 6 september but not showing my application form recieved status….

    • hi rahul.
      trust me your achievements are good. and your selections to pragya and ameya both depends on the fact of the number of applications. so i wish every1 from this site all the best.

        • thank you very much. if all goes well may be we all will be meeting for at & pi. and dats gonna be challenging part. as far as my thots run IITs and CLATS and NITS have taken more dan 10lakhs of students. so hop that % of applicants will be low. lets see

            • cause this iim programme made via cat is not for ug. its for pgp after graduation. so, as far as self concerned i didnt feel dat to be mentioned. it depends of the essay,marks, and definatly co curricular and der choices. all the best rahul

              • guys i calld up n its d new criteria dt apart frm academics xtra curriculars also impact d selection.. basicaly it’s upon hw attractive n impressive ur application seems ovr ol 🙂
                .. n ameya i guess u shudnt worry mch cuz ur gud in bth xtra curriculars + academics.. ol d bst 2 evry1 !! 🙂

                • yes parigya they even told that to me.
                  so its on their take to take a person for selections. dont worry we all ave this international awards.
                  we nearly sail on the same boat. and yes pragiya all the best to u to and to evry 1 out here. 🙂

                  • that waz quite a can try dat out & use perfume too just to hilight ur applications and make it just more dan attractive and yes u can even use a pink envelpo and sketch pens. dat will just fantabulos.
                    trust me they will be attracted. 🙂 🙂
                    dnt mind waz just a punch.

                    • I agree with amrita . You are denying somebody a chance. Even i got a great college for engineering at the moment. But i find this course more attractive.

                    • xctly man iim d name is enuf.. evn though d fee is high bt dose who’ll get in2 it (damn lucky fellas).. aftr 5 yrs it wud definitely b worth smthn more dn jst satisfaction..

                    • cme across dis thng 2day nly.. 121 is d intake 4 dis yr though bt its including d reservation.. d actual no. f candidates in general category is jst “57” 🙁

                    • @ parigya you are totally right. I spoke to my dads friend about this. He is a professor at iimb . He said if its iim must have been looked into a hundred times. He said they’ll provide the best faulty and syllabus. And i don’t really understand the logic. Slog for four years in an iit to leave engineering all together and join management.Total waste of time. That’s the reason this program attracted me. And believe me it would be impossible to get into this program next year.

                    • yeahh dis yr cuz its a new program + 80% f d ppl hv olrdy got admissns in DU or sm enng. collg n in CA CS.. so v r hre hoping 2 get it2 d institute.. nxt yr on it wont b less dn CAT to gt in2 it..

                    • @parigya
                      yes hope so what you are telling turns out to be right. We just gotta hope! And keep our fingers crossed . The results are not far away!

                  • hey rahul try dat puupy1 idea too. and y to scar us plz. we are in deep nid of this ipm. we are in a state of begging. and yes only for the acdemic session of 2010 to 2011 are eligeble to apply. 🙁

        • even i got in a good engineering college.
          but i prefer to study in iimi only cz i didnt make it in IITS
          and the truth is that every 1 who will be writing cat and get there pgp done dey will score higher dan us
          cz ultimatly we arent a post grduate holder.
          we will be only diploma holder. and its true next year no chance for us.

          • I got nitk . But not the branch that i want. Believe me we will be no way less compared to the normal pgp . Its new i agree but we will have more management skills than them . And btw even pgp students get only a diploma. But don’t worry by the time we pass they’ll collaborate with some university to get us a degree.

  67. hello sir,
    i secured 87.83% in X and 70.4% in XII. i’m also runner up in north zone tennis tournaments and participated in tennis nationals. i got my articles published in a national magazine twice and recently got a painting of mine published in an international magazine. apart from these i’ve won loads of inter school competitions in various fields. do i stand a chance getting short listed for AT and PI. also i’d like to know whether extra- curriculars have an impact in the short listing for AT and PI or is it just academics.
    waiting for reply….

  68. sir students from state board posses higher 10th and 12th their paper is quite easy…than cbse…we guys hav less percentage than state board ..then its like hell for cbse they will be considered first..wats ur view shrikant sir ?

    • Hi Sandeep, the percentages of students from different boards will be normalized. IIM Indore will ensure the process is not skewed dont worry.

    • Hi Rahul, on which post did you comment check once again it will be there. We don’t delete any genuine comments. There are 4 to 5 posts related to IIM Indore, so you might have posted question on some other post.

        • Hi Rahul, it depends on many factors such as the recruiting company, your ability to compete in the corporate world, your academic performance etc. The average pay might be in the range of 10 to 12 Lakhs per annum. Some may get 15L few may get 8L per annum and so on.

  72. Sir, you said that you are planning to take the interview of the director of iim-i. Please tell when the interview will be taken from him. Examination date is coming near and all the “so-asked” queries are troubling a lot…………………

    • basicaly more than 850 students. all are wanting to know. and we have trust that Srikant Sir and his team will do the needful

  73. this is to reiterate upon what I said earlier.
    Srikant–Sorry for using profanic linguals.Was carried away.
    To Fellow aspirants :-
    If you are thinking that after 5 years you will stand even somewhere near to a passout of 2 year MBA student of CAT, guys forget it!
    I am a HRM expert myself and have taken hundreds of interviews myself.
    My nephew told me about this course and after going through it i was deeply shocked.
    We don’t give jobs to those who come out of any XYZ institute rather we lay emphasis on various other aspects which are a.f. :-]
    1.Entrance exam cleared by the student.
    2.Genre of aspirants.
    3.Other viable institutes and degrees availaible.
    So if I or rather any HR will face the decision of choosing a student with a Graduation and Post-Graduation degree, we would give preference to the students with seperate degrees. You will hold A MERE DIPLOMA.
    Don’t get confused and regret later-on at a time when you have wasted 25 lakhs and ave nothing competitive in your hand.
    So dear students and aspirants try achieving bigger and better. Don’t limit yourself by putting yousef in for the next five years at a time when sky is the limit.
    At 24 you will have o start afresh and that would be irksome and undesirable.
    And if you mislead by the fact that IAS would be a child’s play for you after this course then BEWARE..DON’T MALIGN THE CIVIL SERAVNTS.
    IAS requires dedication and hard work which is way beyond getting into a course the entrance of which caters tto class X requirements.
    I am not against anything.Its your life your money and your carrer..make it or break it..
    Best of luck to all ( includind IIM-I and my beloved friend srikant.:-) )

  74. On which address is the application form supposed to be sent??is it the iim indore’s address or it is to be addressed to somebody like the vice chancellor,registrar or some other head of the institution.

    • Hi Astha, You can send it to IIM Indore’s address on top some where mention it as Application form for IPM 2011 (It will reach to the concerned department).

  75. Sir I Have 13 certificate of exellence in various activities including scholistic, quizes, drawings, dances, races. but they are just from classes nurser to 10th should i send them too???????.
    pls reply fast as i have written none certificates in the form


        • Hi Navneet, contact Mr.Armstrong Andrews from IIM Indore admissions dept. at 07312439686 or 9893419869. Check with him and let me know the reply.

    • hey but dey ask for certificates only at secondary and higher secondary level…dat z all certificates shud be from class X-XII,and dat too at district,state or national level…i confirmed it from dem after caln iim indore..n dey say only X and XII marksheet is to submitted mandatorily,class XI MARKSHEET IS NOT A MUST.

  76. again sir sorry if i m bothering but pls reply AS YOU ARE NOT REPLYING I HAVE POSTED TOO MUCH POSTS
    also at the end of five years they will award us the certificate “Integrated DIPLOMA In Management”
    SO will they give us diploma or post graduation diploma worth Rs. 25 lacs.

    PLS REPLY thanx

    • Hi Navneet, You have to understand clearly that this course is neither a diploma nor a post graduate diploma instead it is an integrated diploma. There is a clear difference between these three. Diploma is a three years course and post graduate diploma usually is two years (sometimes one year). So integrated diploma will be a combination of these two (You are a graduate and a post graduate after the course completion).

  77. Again sir this is navneet
    i want you to check whether i am sending all the documents
    pls anybody seeing this pls tell me whats missing
    1. form
    2. DD
    3. attested photocopies of marksheets and certificates of class 10th, 11th and 12th
    4. is health certificate mandatory because they have written to get medical certificates from govt. doctors.

    PLS check this check list and give me suggestions

  78. sir, i was wonder as i got in the district merit list in class 5th and 8th should i attach their certificates or they are just asking for high school and higher secondary level

  79. Hello sir,
    This is regarding the scope of the integrated course
    and how it compares to the 2yrs mba degree, since its just been launched what are the future prospects and the potentials of this course regarding placements and relative packages.
    Also i have scored 84% in 10th and 90.5% in 12th from ISC board, no such recognizable scholastic achievements.Do i stand a chance in selection?
    Awaiting your reply.
    Thank you.
    (please reply)

  80. respected sir,
    i just wanted to know that do we require to attach our 11th standard marksheet along with the form as in one of your earlier post i found one of the people talkin about not to attach the markshhet of 11th in case of cbse board.also is it necessary to have some scholastic achievements to attach to it?as i dnt have many of them.and if we dont have achievements like this then do we have a stand in this?

    • Hi Nidhi, If you don’t have official mark sheet for 11th std. you need not bother about it, you can submit application. Yes you need to attach scholastic achievements certificate documents. I can’t say whether you will be shortlisted or not if you don’t have scholastic achievements.

  81. Hello sir,

      • I was looking forward to know that after getting Post Graduation Diploma
        will we be eligible for exams like IAS Or any other as they require gradution
        so will we be eligible for those exams??????????
        pls reply sir…………….

  82. Thanks Srikanth Sir and Amrita as well for your reply.
    Want to ask one more question-

    If I manage to get admission in IIM-I and after completing 3 years, if I crack CAT and get call from IIM-A, B, C or K then will i get the option to switch to another IIM ?

    • no. pragya. u wil get a diploma only after u have passed all the 5 years in iimi. and u cant change ur institute evn if u get the best iims lik iimA,B or C. you are alwaz dear fren

    • Hi Pragya, No you can’t withdraw from this course after 3 years. If you want to study regular 2 year MBA you can do that after your 5 years of your IPM Course.

  83. Hello sir,

    Thank you.


  85. sir,i just want to know tha is the rumor about the iim i …….intregated program true……i mean i hope its not…….but its all over the country……please guide geniunly

    • thanks to Srikant sir and mitra team. dont mind but yes its true about this course. But as it is the 1st timer course better if u are admitted to some good college and have a year to invest,give a drop and sit for next year for more better knowlege. and sir thank you again for agreeing with my opnion. I am overwhelmed sir.

    • Hi Subhi, I didn’t get you what rumor is it? If it is a ‘rumor’ how can it can be ‘true’! Worry less first apply for the course if you want to go for it. If you have other alternatives choose the best! Good Luck..

  86. Another of my query is that will there be any difference in preference after completing the courses given to the students who crack CAT and enroll for PG program in IIM-I over those who will enroll for 5 year integrated program ?

  87. As IIM-I has given many centers for the Aptitude Test, I was wondering whether Personal Interviews will also be conducted at different places by different Interview Panel Boards? As far as I think, they should not do this because different interviewers will have different mind sets, criteria etc. and this can prove to be an advantage for some and at the same time disadvantage for those who end up facing stricter or unfriendly or biased interview board.
    Normally it is seen that Interviews are conducted by same panel, so will IIM-I do the same?

    • hi pragya. I knw that i am not eligeble to answer your questios. because srikant sir and career mitra team is much more experienced and knowledgeable than me. but if u go with a common sense then by studing in iimi to are missing your oppurtunity to study in the best college in India for business. 2ndly there are a cream sections from this iits who will be writing cats as usual to make themselves optimistic to study in iimA,B or C or at least in iimK. so yes cat will always be a way better than this iimi scheme for IPM.
      But u can follow your heart. and honestly people arent much awre of this program yet.
      although Cat wil alawz remain the best option for the students of creamy position.
      Take care.

      • Hi Pragya, Yes I do agree with Amrita’s views. Regular 2 year PGP and 5 years integrated IPM can’t be compared they are different in many ways. The entrance exams are different, selection process is different (there will be a group discussion & personal interview) and the competition level is different. IIMs have been running regular management courses from decades but 5 year integrated course in IIM Indore is first of its kind.

        If you have an objective of cracking CAT after your UG, you may do so by leaving this option. Regular PGP (2 years) is a head of this integrated course primarily because of tough competition and student mix.

  88. Hello sir..I submitted my application with the institute with the institute and got confirmation also..but they have posted out a letter online which says the following..

    “In view of the changes in the age limit, programme title, and the certification being
    offered by the Institute, this mail is’ to seek your willingness and interest in the
    programme in writing for the revised admission notification on our website.
    Please reconfirm your interest as early as possible so that your application can be
    processed further. ”

    Could you please tell me how am I supposed to reconfirm?

  89. Hello,
    I will be enrolling for this course next year I need to know from where will I be getting the Sample Question paper. for the entrance exam of this course conducted by IIM Indore.
    What will be the Questions asked in Personal Interview. Please let me know How to prepare for this Entrance…

  90. Respected Sir,
    I cleared my doubts by calling the phone-number you provided.
    I would like to write few points I cleared by talking to the admin. department for the sake of others:
    1.Attestation is not required for the application form.
    2.The column for Class 11 marks is to be left epmty in case you follow CBSE board.
    3.All the core subjects have to be written.Make addtional space if your core subjects exceed four.

    Now Sir please clear my one doubt regarding the course.
    When we clear CAT and get into an IIM we get the MBA degree.That degree is offered by the university.However, IIM-I is not a university but an institute so it cannoot award a degree rather a diploma.
    Now when we spend a hefty amount for five years we get a diploma. Where does that diploma stand infront of that degree?
    Sir, I am really worried for this will be the first batch.I dont wish to regret for the same in the later years.
    With utmost respect and sheer hope I am waiting for your reply.
    Yours Faithfully.

    • Hi Bhanu, IIM offers post graduate diploma even for those who cleared CAT and take a regular management course (2 years). There is no degree called “MBA” in IIM history so far they call it PGP (Post Graduate Programme) or PGPM (Post Graduate Programme in Management). To clarify your doubt IIM’s are autonomous Institutes meaning that they have the power to conduct courses, exams, draft syllabus on their with out worrying about any University. We are soon planning to take an interview with IIM director and publish an article with answers for many common queries asked by our users.

  91. Gaurav, You have mentioned that “Who is giving you this diploma..the institute.See this is not an IIM degree”? Do you know what crap you are talking. Here the Institute & IIM both are same, the course is offered by IIM Indore not by any Institute on its behalf.

    Research thoroughly with out knowing the facts don’t interfere and don’t promote your own Institutes or Counseling Centers. About education in Canada do you know that every crap can go to abroad Universities and Study (If they have money) but to enter IIMs the place is reserved for extremely talented people in both academics and extracurricular.

  92. Mr.Srikant.
    We know why this course has been launched.
    Its so misfortunate that something like this is taking place.
    Dear Students do read the following points before applying :

    1.The course doesn’t award any degree rather a diploma.
    After investing your hefty five years you are neither a graduate nor a post-graduate rather you hold a diploma degree awarded by one institute.
    Is it govt. certified diploma.Who is giving you this diploma..the institute.
    See this is not an IIM degree.It is a diploma course and that too by IIM INDORE only an institute which is trying hard but cannot be seen in TOP 10 MBA institutes.

    2. The fees 19 lacs is a gimmick. Add 4.80 lac of your hostel fee and travelling and other expenses which make it a minimin of 25Lacs.
    So a 5 Lac per year diploma degree and that too a trial experiment.

    3.Even pvt. universities charge half of this.Even if you got to CANADA your expenses would come less.
    I being an education councellor at EDU WORLD and GSECand ,request you to try and achieve something worth.
    IIPM also launched the similar course, albeit with a degree and not a diploma and the students are still agitating there for such a course has no scope in the commercial space.
    Same goes for you Srikant.

    • People say IIPM isn’t worth the all the hype it’s surrounded by.
      Is is true? Also, if you read around in the internet, negative reviews form the major bulk of it.

    • Mr Gaurav, It is shame on your part being a counselor you don’t know the meaning of diploma & degree. Degrees can only be offered by Universities, since IIMs are not Universities they can’t offer degree instead they offer Diploma. Even for their regular MBA course (2 years) they offer PG Diploma not MBA. The fees part it is expensive I agree instead of paying 6 to 8 lakhs for MBA in ulfa college its worth spending money in IIM.

      In what way I am fooling people, stop giving bull shit lectures here and if you yourself don’t have adequate knowledge in the education domain better sit quietly, we will not spare baseless comments. Our tolerance level is very less for comments like this and people like you. Better use proper language and communicate in a professional manner.

  93. thank you very much srikant sir. i just hope to get chance into dis course. just thank you very much. my last quest is weder we ave to submit all d attested copies of class 10,11,12. & do we nid to attest d certificates even.

    • Hi Sachin, can’t say anything about who will be shortlisted as we don’t have information about who else is applying and their scholastic achievements.

  100. Sir,
    its just to confirm from you that those students who have given sat will be given preference to those who havn’t given sat?

    • Hi Siddharth, Officially IIM Indore didn’t say anything about the importance of SAT and Percentage in secondary and higher secondary. All they said was students of SAT scores will be one pool and Students with out SAT score but have minimum required percentage as another pool. Shortlisting will take place from these pools separately, so it is clear that if you are in the SAT pool you will be competing with somebody in the same pool (who has SAT score).

  101. i have secured 89.8%in Xth nd 79%IN XII and i have a whole lot of certificates related to debates,swimming,basketball ,hockey and i stand any chance of being called in AT and PI

  102. sir,amean X,XI AND XII marksheets are supposed to be attached or not.and i have certificates relating to debates on district level,and certificates of sports on district and state level and some social services records m i supposed to send a photocopy of all of them.and is XI class marksheet a must to be attached?

    • Hi Astha, You will have to attach your scholastic achievement certificates only, marks sheets are not required. You should produce accurate information, XI marks are also required. If you are selected for AT & PI then you need to carry original certificates for verification . Marks you mention now has to tally with the original marks sheets.

    • Hi Astha, Not required you need to attach any supporting files if you have secured a Rank.*Please produce certificates/ evidence if a rank is mentioned. You need to send copies of scholastic achievements along with the application.

  103. HI
    I got 81% in 12th and 82.5% in 10 will i be able to get shortlisted for the PI and AT
    How will the the compition as there are many people who are also having high percentages in their boards
    Thax for the reply

  104. Sir,

    Would like to know

    1)any coaching centres are there in Chennai to equip myself for this entrance exam.

    2) now that HRD has refused to term this course as PG Diploma and certificate at the end of 5 years by IIM will be as ” Integreated Diploma in Management” ( as per revised note) how far this qualification will fetch placement opportunities after 5 years at par with normal PG diploma course offered by the same IIM.

    • Hi Renuka, I have no idea about any coaching centers who train for this entrance exam as no body knows about the structure of questions. 5 years is potentially a big time for IIM Indore to prove in the market, by the time you graduate the demand for the course will increase. Unless until you have plans of taking engineering in IITs, NITs and then do MBA in IIMs or FMS you should not miss out this opportunity. Normal engineering degree in a mediocre college and MBA after that in xyz college will not make any value these days. Its better to study in premier institutes even if the course is new. As per my views I may be right or wrong!

  105. my 10th board score is 94.6% and that of +2 is 93.6%…i have around 8 scholarships and i have also written a novl which has been approved for publication….do i have scope of being shortlisted for AT……:)

  106. Dear sir,
    I am doing my A LEVEL course, consisting of business studies , economics, mathematics,english and accounting. I will complete this course in 2012 november , to earn 9 A LEVEL credits. I have scored 88% in icse examination this year. I am also an active tennis player at the national level and international level.
    I have participated in various olympiads and other competitions also.

    I think i will be eligible to join in 2013.
    Are A level grades accepted by iim indore for the IPGP?
    Please do reply.

    Thank you.

    Sir i have not recieved a reply to my question.
    Please do attend to it, it is a humble request.

    • Hi Anuraag, yes your scores are accepted IIM Indore will use a normalization method to get percentage. Apply for the course you still have plenty of time, its good to have extracurricular activities they play a good role in your career.

  107. sir,i have 88% in my 10th n 75% in my 12th..m really cofident n 4m a gud school but i hav vry lesss marks in 11th..n m from science scholastic achievements..
    bt m really damn passionate about d course..m obc 2..will i make it..

    • Hi Neha, let me apologize first for not responding on your earlier comments. We can’t speculate (guess) about who will be shortlisted for AT & PI (second stage), although it looks like a transparent procedure but it actually is not, in my view they should be giving opportunity to every one (who are eligible and applied) to appear for the written test (AT) and then shortlist for the Personal Interview. But for some reasons IIM Indore is having an initial screening this procedure is explained at So all I can say is apply and in the application form they have asked “why you would like to join this course?” use this field to tell what makes you feel to join this course. Alternatively keep plans as what you should do If you don’t get shortlisted, so I suggest to apply and just relax there is nothing much you can do about it.

  108. can we still appear for sat…and if yes whats the procedure….besides ive got 93% in both class 10th and 12th….with a fair list of scholastic achievements…..but the form says that these achievements should be @least @ the district level…and i have none…so should i sit for SAT as well?

    • Hi Sadaf, SAT is not mandatory if you wish you can take the test, There are two set of applicants: 1) Applicants who meet the eligibility criteria of 60% or 55% (reserved classes) and 2) applicants who doesn’t meet the eligibility criteria of 60% or 55% but they have a SAT Score of 1600 or 1475. These two set of applicants are treated as two different pools while shortlisting. Proportionate number of applicants will be called for AT & PI from these two pools. You are already in Pool 1 and I don’t see any reason as why you want to take the SAT. More information in detail is covered at Thanks for your feedback 🙂

  109. sir….we dont receive any formal marksheet in class 11th but i do remember my marks as well…besides i have the certificates….but the application form asks for class 11th marks as well….what to do…

      • thank you for the reply sir…!one more thing i would like to ask is that do we need to attach the marksheet although the form says that we have to attach certificates of scholastic achievements and rank?

        • Hi Sadaf, Yes you will need to send certificates of scholastic achievements marks sheets are not required at this stage.

  110. Hi sir this is Aprajita. Thanx for the reply. I just want to know that i hadn’t scored good marks in class 11 and i have a few certificates which i won in school’s co-curricular programs. I have scored 78.6% in class 10th n 65% in class 12th. So is there any chance that i’ll be shortlisted? and secondly i want to know the topics that are expected to come in the AT?

    • Hi Prakhar, You can do diploma course in Banking & Finance (this is equivalent to a degree) and go for a Post Graduate Diploma in Banking or Finance. You haven’t mentioned whether you are looking for graduate course or post graduate course. Indian Institute of Banking & Finance and Institute of Finance Banking & Insurance are few example Institutes.
