Hi I have been shortlisted for for ipm iim indore and they have asked me to send a 3min video answering questions given by them, will there be any further interview or was it a substitute for interview and any Idea when will I able to know that I have been selected for the course
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it's quite difficult at this point of time to call students for the personal interview. So IIM Indore for their IPM program has replaced the interview part with this video message in which students are required to send their videos answering the question asked. The selection of students will be done on the basis of this instead of the Personal Interview.
Hope that helps
