Dr. Venkat, Admissions Officer of IBS Hyderabad, in an exclusive interview with Careers360, answers multiple queries of MBA aspirants on different aspects regarding IBSAT entrance test and admissions in the current pandemic situation.
Careers360: This year, IBSAT is a home proctored exam. What prompted this decision considering that many national exams are still being conducted in exam centres? For example CAT was just held on November 29 across 400+ exam centres, NMAT has the option of appearing at a test centre.
Dr. Venkat: Under the current pandemic situation, keeping the safety of the candidates in mind, IBS has decided to conduct IBSAT 2020 as a home based online artificial intelligence based proctored exam. Candidates can take the exam from their residence.
Careers360: Considering that many students are facing net connectivity as well as power issues, what are the steps taken in such a case so that students don’t suffer for no fault of theirs?
Dr. Venkat: During the exam if students are facing net connectivity as well as power issues, they can re-start the exam from the same point from where they have left by logging in again. An online help desk will be provided to support them.
Careers360: Candidates are shortlisted on the basis of IBSAT 2020/ GMAT /NMAT by GMAC/CAT scores, which test scores will be given preference if students have appeared for more than one of the specified tests?

Candidates who have taken GMAT/NMAT/CAT are exempted from writing IBSAT test if they have scored the required cut off by IBS. There is no preference. All the qualified candidates have to appear for the selection process.
Careers360: Are the test scores (CAT/ GMAT/ IBSAT/ NMAT by GMAC) given any weightage? If yes, pls give details.
Dr. Venkat: There is no weightage. Candidates with scores from any of these tests are exempted from writing the IBSAT 2020 test.
Careers360: Students can avail mock tests which are free on your website. There is another national mock test which is scheduled between November 23 November to December 25, 2020. Kindly give some details about this and the benefits to students.
