The topic will be announced at the venue just before the GD/WAT.

 

The topics can be from current political, economic, sports, business affairs, and other fields. During the interview, the panel will evaluate each candidate's performance on academic background, quality of work experience and other personal traits.  

After the conclusion of PI and GD/WAT, the final scores will be computed based on the performance in CAT 2015, PI, GD/WAT, and quality of professional experience. Category‐wise merit list will be prepared based on the final scores. For the final score calculations, maximum weightage will be for the PI scores following with CAT 2015 scores.
