Q:   Can an average student get into an IIM?

A: 

The answer to this question of whether an average student can get into IIM can be both yes and no depending on the definition of an average student.

  • Based on Academics (Class 10/ Class 12/ Graduation): While a student with average scores in Class 10, Class 12 and graduation with a good CAT score certainly has good chances of getting a call from IIM-A, chances are less for someone with an average CAT score.
  • Based on student category (General or Reserved): While it is tough for a General category average student to grab a seat at IIM due to high score requirements, a reserved category student can get admission being at average scores as well.
  • Based on past work experience, diversity and other factors: Gender and academic diversity is also a factor on which students are shortlisted at IIM. IIMs judge the past academic category based on the degree obtained by the students before MBA and then a weightage is allotted based on that. For Engineers, the percentage for scoring the highest marks is higher as compared with other streams
  • Performance in selection rounds: Once you make it to the final selection rounds, i.e., AWT/PI process, it can be considered a fresh start. At this stage, students can forget their past average-ness but definitely require good grasp over the past subjects as academics-related questions are asked in the interview.

Based on the above factors, it can be considered that while getting into top Management institutes, such as IIM is extremely tough, the past performance, CAT performance, student category and a lot of factors can be the reasons for a student to receive that final call.

Placements were excellent in 2019 batch.
Placements: Placements are fine. 90% of students were placed. Median annual salary offered was somewhere around 16-17 LPA. For this programme, placement is a bit challenging but we saw great placement score in 2018-19 batch. IT and consulting were some of the areas where roles were offered. It's mandatory to do an internship with this programme. Internship interviews will also be conducted by the institute. Internship stipend ranges from 25K to 50K.
Infrastructure: The college has a great library and facilities. Students also enjoy paid subscription of some magazines. Sports facilities here are average. It is an old b-school and space allotted for games and sports is less. College has its own sports club and many talented students also. There are various clubs in this college. Hostels are decent, although the infrastructure is pretty old, but you still get AC facility. Other facilities in the hostel are also fine.
Faculty: Senior faculty members are very nice. Although some are very strict, but that is not much of an issue most of the time. You will learn a lot from all of them. They put a lot of effort in teaching. They are well experienced and give a lot of assignments to study upon. Course is very hectic. 2 years of studies is squeezed into some 4 months of studies.

Triple learning, Triple fun, Triple success.
Placements: Placement rate is 100% and 50% got PPO. The highest package was 40 LPA and average was 25 LPA. Top recruiters for internship and final placements are MasterCard, DE Shaw, EXL, PwC, ITC, Amazon. Etc. Top roles- Business consultant, Sr. manager-Analytics, Data scientist, Solution architect, etc.
Infrastructure: ISI cal- Wi-Fi enabled campus, great library, and labs, classrooms have all modern amenities, food is a bit costly but very good. One and only Museum, great ambiance on campus, very supportive staff, very less students so peaceful.
Faculty: The faculty here are gods, to be honest. Each and every one of them has the ability to solve any doubt from anything analytics. Very humble and knowledgeable (especially ISI). You'll get a whole semester (6 months) for graded-Internship (also paid). I think that's more than enough to make you industry ready, it makes you Start-UP-ready. Also, each and every one of your peers would be highly accomplished him/herself, so a lot to learn from peer-to-peer. The course gets updated regularly in line with the latest technology, theory, etc. In the Analytics domain (both Industry and Academics).
Other: This is one of the first courses in business analytics to be offered in our nation and quickly climbed up the rankings. With all three pioneers, I don't think there is any course better than this even presently. Our semesters were shortened and that made the course very intensive and rigorous. But again it was due to Covid and I don't see it getting repeated in the future. Lots of events and fests are organized here (right now on hold due to Covid). The campus crowd is as expected from Premium institutes, everyone is well accomplished. Scholarships are given to EWS folks.
