IIM Indore revoked its decisions to make Class 12 Mathematics a primary criterion for applying to 5 year Integrated Programme in Management (IPM) at the institute. This decision was taken on the appeal of applicants for the IPM course, as the candidates appearing for the entrance exam sent emails to IIM Indore regarding their concern.
To get better students, the IIM-Indore had made eligibility criteria difficult for this academic session.
According to the authority, the students without a mathematics background also face difficulty to cope up with the curriculum as mathematics is included in a few management subjects. But after a huge cry from the aspirants, the institute has decided to give relaxation at least for a year.
IIM-I Professor, Akhtar Parvez said, "The eligibility criteria have been given relaxation following the response from the students. Many students have dropped a year in order to prepare for the entrance examination. E-mails were pouring-in once we released of entrance examination notification. A corrigendum would be followed soon."
Candidates can apply of IIM-I till April 16, 2016. The entrance test for admissions is going to be held on May 13, 2016. The test will be held in 28 cities across the country. Candidates will be selected for IPM course at IIM-I based on their performance in the aptitude test and personal interview held at IIM-I.
