Candidates who are appearing for the final year examination can also apply, and so can those who are awaiting their results. Provisional certificates will need to be submitted.

The selection process is of two stages, and various factors are considered, so fulfillment of the minimum eligibility criteria alone will not ensure consideration for shortlisting into the IIM.

Selection Process

Stage 1

IIM Lucknow will normalize your academic scores. The minimum cut-off for the Post Graduate Program (PGP) and Post Graduate Program in Agribusiness Management (PGP-ABM) courses has been set at 90 percentile and 85 percentile respectively. IIM Lucknow will consider the overall cut-off, as well as sectional cut-off.

The overall cutoff for management programs at Indian Institute of Management Lucknow stands at 90 for General Category candidates; sectional cutoff is 85. This CAT 2016 cutoff is for admission into programs for the academic year 2017-2019.
