The candidate can also hold a degree in Engineering or Technology for four years duration after twelfth grade, BSc or Diploma course completion.
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.
IIM Raipur follows the Government of India's policy on reservations for Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), Non-creamy Other Backward Classes (NC-OBC) and PWD (Person with Difficulty).

The overall cutoff for General Category candidates in 90 percentile at IIM Raipur while the least cutoff percentile stands at 65 for DAP & ST candidates. Again, there has been no major change in the cutoff percentile over the last few years.

IIM Raipur's admission committee will decide upon the number of shortlisted candidates that will be called for the PA round. If the actually number of candidates is found to be less/more than the required number of candidates then the overall and section-wise minimum score will be reduced/increased accordingly.
Your CAT score is the score criterion for making it through the first short-list. The short-listing factors for the first stage include your CAT score, and grades in 10th, 12th and graduation. It also takes into account your work experience, whether you have done a post-graduation course already, academic background and gender. All these are marked out of 60 points as in the table below:
Written Ability Test/Personal Interview (WAT/PI)
Marks in 10th
Marks in 12th
Marks in Graduation
The Personal Appearance round consists of the Written Ability Test (WAT) and the Personal Interview (PI) rounds. The Written Analysis Test accounts for 10% of the weightage, while the Personal Interview round accounts for 30% of the weightage
Your Academic Profile includes your performance in 10th grade, 12th grade, and in your undergraduate studies.
The table below shows the weightage assigned to scores in 10th grade, 12th grade, and graduation for candidates that are in General quota, NC-OBC, SC, DAP, and ST.
