The basic eligibility criteria
Any candidate who wishes to appear in the IIM Rohtak IPMAT 2021 should meet two basic eligibility criteria.
The candidates belonging to the General, NC-OBC and EWS categories should have scored a minimum of 60% in their tenth grade and twelfth grade examinations. For candidates belonging to the SC, ST and PwD categories, the threshold is kept at 55%.
Well, I have a question…
And the question is going to be about what if a candidate is yet to appear for the higher secondary board examination. The answer is that the candidates will be allowed to write the examination and be part of the selection process. If they do get selected, the admission will be provisional.
The candidates should not be older than 20 years of age.
