Waitlist Movement Trends For Top Bschool
May 15 2024

Many students eagerly anticipate waitlist movements to determine their chances of securing admission to the top B-schools. The journey begins with registration for CAT, commencing in August, while other non-CAT exams follow their scheduling for registration on respective official websites. CAT 2024 will feature 66 questions across three sections: Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension, Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning, and Quantitative Aptitude.


What is the selection process for top Bschool?

The selection process for all top B-schools is meticulously monitored, typically consisting of distinct stages. Initially, candidates are assessed based on their CAT percentile scores and sectional cutoffs. The second stage varies among IIMs and top B-schools, each instituting its unique process. Each B-school sets its own overall and sectional cutoffs, determining the shortlisting of students for the subsequent stages, which may include AWT(Analytical Writing Test)/WAT(Writing Ability Test)/GD(Group Discussion) & PersonalInterview(PI).                  

In the final stage, the selection is strictly contingent upon the shortlisting of candidates, conducted separately for each category (General/SC/ST/NC-OBC/PWD), based on the Final Composite Score(FCS).

The Final Composite Score involves a normalization process aimed at ensuring fairness and equity in evaluating candidates across all sessions. Their scores undergo CAT normalization to derive individual percentiles.

 

What is the Waitlist Movement?

Following the initial announcement of selected candidates, an additional group of applicants is maintained on standby if any chosen candidate opts to decline their seat. Subsequently, the seat becomes available to the next qualified candidate. 

This roster of hopeful candidates eagerly awaiting a potential vacancy can be aptly referred to as the dynamic waitlist, a pivotal stage in the suspense-filled journey toward admission to esteemed top B-schools.

Candidates on the waitlist should remain vigilant, regularly monitoring communications from the IIM they've applied to, and diligently adhering to any directives issued by the admissions office. Waitlist progression in IIMs and several top B-schools is typically contingent upon categories, with the general category experiencing stringent conditions, while SC, ST, OBC, and PwD categories may encounter some leniency

 

The below table shows the Past trend of waitlist movement:
