Based on the weightage of CAT 2017, work experience, gender diversity and past academic performance, IIM Visakhapatnam will prepare lists which will shortlist the candidates for written ability test and personal interview.

Standardization or normalization formula which will be used for all the shortlisted candidates will be as follows

Max [0, min {wt, wt/2 + ((val-mean)/ sd) * wt/6}]

The score for work experience of any candidate will be counted using the following formula

Score for Work Experience = 8x/36(if 0<x <36)

                                                      = 8 (if x> 36)

Where x indicates the months of work experience up to July 2017, as captured in CAT application form. This implies that the score will peak at 36 months work experience and will remain at that level for candidates with work experience exceeding 36 months. The work experience score will be multiplied by the quality of work experience score on a 5 point scale i.e. 0.25 – 0.5 – 1 – 1.5 – 2 etc. as given by the interviewers in the personal interview process in stage 2, to then arrive at a weighted work experience score.

Since IIM Visakhapatnam follows a comprehensive multi – criteria process, it is able to identify several candidates who are having outstanding academic performance and work experience but who while doing well enough in AT to be in the first shortlist, may have narrowly missed the high score that would have been required if CAT alone was the basis for admission. Such candidates effectively replace the candidates who have only a high CAT score but score poorly in terms of their past academic record and work experience. IIM Visakhapatnam emphasized consistent and high performance in the past academics.
