IIM Admission Waitlist

The IIM admission waitlist refers to the availability of seats that become available to candidates on the waitlist. When the IIMs release their final admission list, they also reserve a batch or a certain number of seats for candidates on the waitlist.

  • If any admitted candidate decides to decline their offer, then the student on the waitlist will have the opportunity to be admitted.
  • In recent years, students have had to wait for a long time for the waitlists of IIM Ahmedabad, Bangalore, and Calcutta to move closer to admission chances.
  • There is a high level of waitlist movement in IIM Calcutta and IIM Lucknow because selected candidates often prefer IIM Ahmedabad or IIM Bangalore over these two institutions.
