by Manisha Verma

IIMs are the premier B-Schools of the country, this year IIMs have declared their admission criteria for 2012-14 in advance. Earlier IIMs used to announce the admission criteria once they declared the CAT results. But from this year onwards IIMs have started declaring their admission criteria in advance and aspirants are happy with this new practice.

IIM Rohtak will enroll around 120 to 130 students in the 2012-2014 batch. The admission will be done on the basis of the CAT scores, Personal Appearance process which includes Personal Interview and Written Analysis process. The final selection will be done on the basis of total CAT score, PA score and profile score including work experience and Past Academic Performances.
