IIMs are not necessarily for Men alone, over the decades the presence of Men have dominated the IIMs resulting in gender inequality. IIM Calcutta decided to address this issue, a 10% women in the campus is really a bad thing, therefore the Institute will go a bit liberal towards female students from next academic year.
IIM Calcutta will be the first among the older IIMs to tweak it’s selection process, IIM Lucknow and IIM Kozhikode have already introduced a new formula to make entry of women easier. At IIM Calcutta the tweaking of selection process will be effected after stage I, that is after CAT scores. IIMs after verifying the scores, academic performance invite students for further rounds of selection. For female students a bonus mark is added here, preference will be given to female students while men score in this aspect remains a null. It is not yet decided as how much a bonus mark will be, a formula will be in place soon as per sources.
