Aspirants are required to note that each of the 9 IIMs follows different shortlisting criteria. As per the shortlisting criteria it has been suggested for 8th batch of IIM Rohtak, that more weightage will be given to female and non-engineering background students while shortlisting students to ensure a healthy mix of candidates from diverse backgrounds. This criterion for each IIM is included in their admission policy which can be found on their websites. The students shortlisted for some older IIMs might not have to appear for the CAP, as some of the older IIMs will share their PA scores with IIM Rohtak.
