Check Selection Parameters of Management Institutes
More than two lakh candidates appeared for CAT 2018 which was conducted by the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta. Candidates are shortlisted for the admission process in different IIMs on the basis of their CAT scores. There are 20 IIMs in the country and each one of them has different admission criteria. It is imperative to have a thorough knowledge of the selection parameters of management institutes. All the IIMs usually follow a two-step selection process. They are -
Common Admission Test (CAT)
Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI)
However, all IIMs do not conduct any common counselling process. The six new IIMs conduct Common Admission Process (CAP) which includes common WAT and PI rounds. The newly formed IIMs, IIM Sirmaur and IIM Jammu, both mentored by IIM Lucknow do not conduct WAT-PI rounds and declare merit list based on CAT score, past academic records, work experience and diversity factors.
Gear Up for Next Level of Evaluation
As already mentioned, apart from CAT, there are various other evaluating rounds which B-Schools exercise for selecting candidates, namely Writing Ability Test (WAT), Group Discussion (GD), Personal Interview (PI), Essay Writing. Moreover, a few of the institutes consider work experience as well. After CAT results, candidates should focus on equipping themselves with relevant skills to master in the mentioned skill sets.
