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.

Hard Reality of IIM Shillong 1 year course.
Placements: Out of 26 students only 14 students got placed by Placement cell, rest 5 got job after many difficulties through outside sources. 6 students are still struggling for getting a job after 5.5 months of course end. The highest Placement India- 20 LPA the highest Placement Outside- 28LPA the lowest placement - 10LPA Top Roles - Sr. Consultant by Cognizant & Accenture.
Infrastructure: Facilities were not upto the mark, no proper infrastructure. Every time internet issues in the campus, no special tools were provided to faculty members for online teaching like good camera, sound system. Out of 1.15 hr session, 20 minutes wasted in connecting to the platform. Canteen food is the worst, rely on outside food if you have money to spend.
Faculty: All teachers and study materials used were too old, not new technologies used for teaching. Even study materials need to be updated to keep students upto date from the changing market conditions. No it doesn't make the student industry ready, that's why still students are struggling to get job. Semester exams are too easy to clear.
Other: I chose this college for the IIM tag but got the reality after entering the college. Nothing best happened to our batch as we were Covid Victim. First of all college need to understand the market needs and remove the "n" no of cultural courses from the curriculum. Cultural courses are just reducing the no of courses and it doesn't give any benefit to the students.

Satisfied with the life at IIM Shillong.
Placements: The highest package of the batch 2020 was 40 LPA (domestic) and the average package was approximately 18 LPA. 100% students were placed in Finals as well as the Internships. The highest stipend for internships was 3 LPA for 2 months given by Aditya Birla Group. Most of the students were placed in Consulting and Marketing companies.
Infrastructure: Being a temporary campus, it lacks in various basic amenities like Sports facilities, computer labs etc., but the campus is strategically located. All the basic requirements are available nearby. We would be shifting to the new campus this year. The hostel rooms are small and double or triple sharing. The mess food is not good.
Faculty: Some of the teachers are very helpful and highly qualified, but that can not be said about the majority. Many faculty members are unable to grasp the attention of students. Minimum of 85% attendance is mandatory in each subject. Each subject has 20 sessions and there are 7-8 subjects taught in a trimester. The 1st year's curriculum can be a bit improvised .
