How Common Admission Process (CAP) will work?
According to IIM Trichy, the Common Admission Process for the PGDM Program for the 2014-16 batches will work as follows:
Individual IIMs will prepare a shortlist based on their shortlisting criteria. These shortlists will be combined for further processing by the coordinating IIM, namely, IIM Trichy.
From the combined list, names of candidates called for interviews by IIM Bangalore, IIM Calcutta, IIM Lucknow, and IIM Kozhikode will be set aside. The remaining candidates will be called for a Common Personal Interview & Written Analysis Test (PI & WAT).
The PI & WAT scores for candidates set aside from the common shortlist will be obtained from the respective older IIMs from which they got the interview calls. Those who have been called by more than one older IIM will have their PI & WAT scores averaged across the IIMs where they have appeared for interviewing.
Admission status will be available on the Common Admission website www.iimtrichy.ac.in/6iims_admissions by 30th January 2014. Requests for change of centre for PI & WAT have to reach the Admissions cell of IIM Trichy on or before 3rd February 2014. Please note that these requests will be accommodated solely at the discretion of IIM Trichy.
Each IIM will take the PI & WAT score of the candidates shortlisted by them and combine it with other scores -- CAT score, Profile score and any other score to make their own individual merit list to make final offers to the candidates.
Please note that only the PI and WAT are conducted commonly by the six new IIMs. The final merit list of candidates will be arrived at by each IIM according to its own selection criteria. These criteria will be available on the websites of the respective institutes.
Different new IIMs have already announced their admission criteria for academic year 2014-15.
