    graduation is the basic eligibility criteria for getting into the IIMs. the stream in which you graduate does not matter although you can be questioned about your choice of subjects in the interview round. maths is necessary for CAT (the entrance exam for IIMs) as in there is a complete section in the entrance test that tests you mathematical ability. this constitutes a very large part of the exam. i would suggest that you go through old examination papers of CAT and judge for yourself if you will be able to handle CAT level maths.

    Eligibility Criteria to get admission in IIM for MBA - Master's of Business Administration

    >> Must have scored more than 80% marks in class 10th from a recognized board
    >> Must have scored more than 80% marks in class 12th from a recognized board
    >> Must have scored more than 80% marks in graduation from a recognized university
    >> Must have scored more than 80% marks in post graduation if having or completed
    >> Must have at least 2 year of working experience in any field with certificate

    Dear this criteria is for getting 100% sure admission in IIM but before that you will have to qualify CAT entrance test and if you score good percentage marks in CAT or MAT then this above mentioned criteria may be decreased and it is low for reserved category candidates and CAT is conducted by IIM and you must have at least 98% + marks in CAT or MAT to get 100% sure call for interview and GD from IIM and for selection in MBA course so you have to prepare well for this exam to get admission in IIM

    As you have mentioned that you are not good in mathematics then I would like to say that practice is only the way to get good command over mathematics so that you should use various books to prepare for this section and I would suggest you for join a very good coaching institute that provides better quality education and learn everything in this and all other sections and qualify examination and if you have completed your degree with at least 50% marks then you can apply for CAT or MAT test

    All the best

    Hi

    IIM Elgibility criteria doesn't say anything about your 10th marks. All it says, that you should have graduation from UGC recognized college/institute with minimum 50% marks
    But more the marks in your 10th, more is your chance to get the call and get admission.
    Many times its the tie breaker for candidates with similar CAT Score.
    Basic maths is requiered. If you can manage that, you can apply

    All the best
