We accept CAT/MAT/MAH-CET scores. However, as CAT /MAT/ MH-CET scores are issued to the students, any student who has appeared for the CAT/MAT/MAH-CET examinations can apply for our courses with the CAT/MAT/MAH-CET scores.

However, the MAT and MAH-CET scores will be equalized and validated to the CAT score value and that will only be counted for the purpose of merit list. Anyone having any objection to the same, need not to apply. We do not believe in any cut-off points as we give only 30% of the weightage for the entrance examination, while making the merit list.

This will be for 30 marks and fifty percent of the marks will be counted. This essay writing will be for half an hour. The topics will be general in nature and anyone who follows the National Newspapers can easily appear for the same and score good marks.

Candidates who fulfill the qualitative requirements will be called for the Group Discussions by experts. This will be for duration of 30-45 minutes per group. This may include role play, case studies and extempore speech and GD. 40% of the weightage in the merit list will be given to the GD process. Therefore the GD process may extend to the second day although all efforts will be made to complete the process in one day. This is an elimination round.
This expert panel interview and the essay marks will carry 30% of the weightage. This panel will assess the candidates on various parameters including the suitability of the candidate for a particular specialisation.
