Here’s how:

  • Ensure that you sit for the CATs before the application window is open. The CAT marks determine whether you’ll qualify for the next phase of the admission.
  • Check the institution’s website regularly to ensure that you submit your applications before the expiry of the deadline.
  • When filling in the application form, you should always ensure that you provide accurate and verifiable information. Any dishonesty will lead to automatic disqualification at the early stage of the application process.

Once you submit the application form, you should wait for the communication from the institution’s admission desk. If successful, you’ll move on to the next phase as follows:

  • Invitation for the Personal Interviews and Written Ability Test. Once your application is accepted, it’s time for the institution to test your ability to handle the MBA program. The PI and WAT are tests conducted in the institution and the marks contribute to the final aggregate score.
  • Group Discussions Forums. While still in the university, you will be classified into groups of up to 10 candidates. You will have limited time to make your contributions to a given topic.
  • Towards the end, the controller will award marks based on your ability to defend your opinion.

After you’re through with all these processes, the admission panel will collate all the marks to achieve the overall score for each candidate.

The awarding is based on the CAT/GMAT score (the largest share of marks), the PI, WAT, and Group Discussion Scores, previous work experience, and academic achievements.
