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.

 

Q:   Which courses are offered by IIM Lucknow?

A: 

The modes of Indian Institute of Management Lucknow (IIM Lucknow) course admissions are online and offline. Admission to various undergraduate and postgraduate courses is based on merit and entrance exam scores.

Overall Satisfied with the experience at IIM Lucknow.
Placements: All students at the campus get placed. The average package at IIM Lucknow is about 28 LPA, and the average stipend for the internship period is 1.6 LPA per month. Almost half of the batch gets PPOs from their interns. Roles are offered in all domains, including Finance, Operations, Consulting, and HR.
Infrastructure: Hostel accommodation is mandatory as it is a residential program. The quality of hostel rooms is also good. Everyone is allocated a single, separate room. There are no restrictions or curfew timings as such on campus. Wi-Fi is available on campus, and meals served at the mess are okay, better than in other colleges.
Faculty: The curriculum and teachers are above average. Some subjects are very practical and provide insights into the real-world functioning of companies, while others are dead boring, such as Legal Studies. All in all, it's a fun experience learning from such learned professors.

Our college has good facilities and faculty members.
Placements: IIM has a very good and active placement cell. Placements start in the pre-final semester. Many top companies, such as Maruti Suzuki, Airport Authority of India, Unschool, Duraroof, etc., come here for placements. The average salary package ranges from 7 LPA to 8 LPA. Approximately 70% of students get placed during the placement process. After getting the degree, I also hope to work for one of the reputed companies in India.
Infrastructure: There were 3 types of hostels. They were old dorms, new dorms, and married student hostels. Two mess halls served food to the whole IIMA community. In terms of quality, I would rate it as average, considering the type of food served. It was mandatory to stay in hostels for PGP students.
Faculty: Most faculty members have Ph.D.s. They graduated from IIMS. We have faculty members from foreign universities. They teach for short durations. A few of them teach for a period of 3 months. We have 3 terms each year. Exams are more focused on the practical mind of a student than on basic technical things.
Other: I chose MBA to pursue a career in finance.
