Application Process Stages:
Shortlist of candidates for the Group Interviews
The candidates are shortlisted on the basis of their profiles.
They are also expected to meet the qualifying criteria in at least one of the entrance exams as indicated below:
|Qualifying criteria||CAT 2015||XAT 2016||GMAT (Tests taken between 1st January 2013 and 15th Dec 2015)|
|Overall Qualifying Score||85 percentile||85 percentile||650|
|Sectional Qualifying Score||70 percentile||70 percentile||N.A.|
The profiles are scored and the applicants are sorted into two groups corresponding to two phases of interviews.
First Phase Shortlists / Early Interviews
Applicants placed in the first phase of this shortlist are called for an early interview based on their profile where the following factors are considered
- Consistency of academic record
- Relevance of work experience for the specialisation
- Versatility & Achievements
Shortlists at this early stage provide an opportunity to the applicants to go through the interview process early. This is convenient for students because it avoids overlapping with other interview calls during the admissions season. For the Institute, it affords the opportunity to stagger interviews and ensure that the interview process remains robust even though numbers being interviewed is large.
Second Phase Shortlists
This phase is held after the availability of entrance test scores. Applicants in this phase are called for interviews based on their profiles as given above along with their performance in the entrance tests. This interview call is thus a combination of profile and performance in the entrance tests.
Final Merit List
Merit List is based on a composite score, which takes into account the candidate’s academic record, entrance test scores (CAT/XAT/GMAT), relevance of work experience(if any) and performance in the two rounds of group interviews.
