IRMA Selection Process 2023: Cutoff, Merit List

In order to choose candidates for IRMA 2023, either merit-based calls or profile-cum-merit calls will be used. Candidates that meet the minimum eligibility requirements will be contacted to participate in the IRMA 2023 selection process. A final merit list will be created based on the performance of each candidate overall.
Selection Process - Indian Nationals
Stage I: Short-listing based on CAT/XAT/CMAT Scores
The shortlisting of candidates will be determined by their CAT 2022, XAT 2023, and CMAT 2022 results.
The shortlist result will be communicated to students through email or SMS to their registered mobile number and email address.
Stage II: Interview Process
A personal interview and the Online Written Ability Test (OWAT) make up stage two of the IRMA admissions procedure (PI).
Shortlisted candidates will be contacted for the next level of selection, where they will be required to take an online written ability test (OWAT). The candidate will have to write between 200–300 words on a predetermined subject. It is intended to assess both a candidate's written communication abilities and aptitude for rural work.
Personal Interview (PI): Candidates will be evaluated on their managerial capabilities, communication skills, and fit for the Institute's programme before being shortlisted for interviews with IRMA professors. The candidate's approach toward rural management is particularly significant because the PGDM (RM) serves a very specific customer, namely organisations that support broad-based rural development in India.
Both an offline and online mode will be used to conduct the personal interview. The candidate will be given the choice of personal interview style.
The following centres will host offline personal interviews.
  1. Anand
  2. Bangalore
  3. Delhi
  4. Guwahati
  5. Kolkata
  6. Pune
