Although the online application portal captures sectional scores and percentile as part of CAT 2019 performance, the same is not used for application rating. The details regarding the scores for application rating for various qualifications/degrees/work experience are provided below (ref. Tables 2.1– 2.4):

Table 2.1: Application Rating (AR) scores for 10th and 12th Std. Exams

Note: For the qualifying/bachelor’s degree of the applicant, the percentage of marks awarded by University/Institution/College, as applicable, will be treated as final. If the University/Institution/College does not award the percentage of marks, it will be calculated on the basis of the marks obtained in all subjects listed in the marks-sheet submitted by the candidate.

Cumulative grade point average (CGPA) performance will be converted into ‘marks percentage’ as shown below:

Marks Percentage = 60 + (40/3.5) x [(CGPA obtained / Total CGPA) x 10 – 6.5]

Note: The above conversion is only for computing the academic rating (AR). While submitting the application online, candidates should fill in the actual marks percentage/CGPA as provided by her/his University/Institution/College, as applicable. We will NOT accept any equivalence of conversion from CGPA to percentage marks provided by any individual universities/institution/college; in this case, the final and binding method of conversion will be as provided above.

 

II. Final Selection and Offer of Admission to MBA

In the second stage of the admission process, final selection will be based on the cumulative score of the application rating (AR), performance in CAT 2019 (for domestic candidates) or in GMAT® (for non-domestic candidates), and the candidate’s performance in WAT-PI process.

Table 3: Criteria and weights for final selection to MBA

Criterion Weight

Application Rating* 20
WAT-PI 60(20+40)
