Components of New IIMs CAP 2018
Common Admission Process (CAP) 2018 for 11 new IIMs will consist of two components as final selection round called final admission stage.

 

The shortlisted candidates for CAP 2018 will be required to appear for a common

  1. Written Analysis Test (WAT), and
  2. Personal Interview (PI)

All the 11 IIMs may have similar shortlisting criteria but will announce their shortlisting criteria independent of others and despite going for Common Admission Process (CAP), final merit list will be generated by each of them separately.

 

How to know when to participate in CAP 2018
The shortlisted candidates will be able to check their CAP 2018 dates on website of respective IIMs and will also be informed on their registered mail only after the CAT 2017 result date. It is expected that CAP 2018 will commence after 2 weeks from the CAT 2017 result date. The candidates who are not shortlisted by the 11 new IIMs will not be sent further communication.

 

The CAP 2018 coordinating IIM for 11 participating new IIMs, IIM Rohtak proposes to announce the dates for CAP 2018 round after the CAT 2017 result is declared. It is learnt that the exact dates of PI & WAT, along with the locations will be shared after the CAT 2017 results are out.

 

CAP 2018 centres
The CAP 2018 comprising Personal Interview and Written Analysis Test would be conducted at New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai and Kolkata. The exact date for PI & WAT will be communicated to the short-listed candidates by IIM Rohtak which is Co-ordinating CAP 2018 for 2018-20 batch on behalf of 11 new IIMs.

 

Coordination process between new and old IIMs
Students shortlisted for some older IIMs might not have to appear for the CAP, as some of the older IIMs will share their PA scores with IIM Rohtak. Those candidates who have been called by more than 1 older IIM will have their scores averaged across the IIMs where they have been interviewed. Finally, the scores of PA Process will be shared with the other IIMs participating in CAP, who will then make their own merit lists according to the normalized scores.

 

7 key steps in New IIMs CAP 2018

 

Step 1: Shortlist by Individual IIMs
Each of the 11 IIMs will shortlist the candidates for CAP 2018 independent of each other. It is expected that the candidates will be shortlisted at the 1st stage around 10 to 12 times of the intake for batch 2018-20 by each IIM. It may create the multiplicity of calls for the same candidate if he/she meets the shortlisting criteria of many IIMs.

 

Step 2: Each IIM to send shortlist to CAP 2018 Coordinator - IIM Rohtak
Each CAP participating IIM will then forward its list of shortlisted candidates to the CAP 2018 coordinating IIM Rohtak.

 

Step-3: IIM Rohtak to create Final List of Shortlisted Candidates for CAP 2018 Calls
IIM Rohtak will combine the list of all participating IIMs and prepare a final list of candidates for CAP 2018 Calls. IIM Rohtak will then send out calls to these candidates. More than 12,000 candidates are expected to get New IIMs CAP Calls.

 

Step 4: Candidates to participate in PI & WAT Process
CAP 2018 assessment round will only have Personal Interview (PI) and Written Abilities Test (WAT). There will be no Group Discussion. A candidate will be asked to appear at one of the 5 CAP Centers New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai and Kolkata.

 

Step 5: CAP 2018 Scores to be sent by IIM Rohtak to participating IIMs
Based on the performance of the candidates in the PI & WAT round, IIM Rohtak will prepare the scores for the CAP Round. This will be sent to all the participating IIMs after CAP round is over.

 

Step 6: 11 IIMs to prepare their own Final Admission List
Each participating IIM has its own admission policy. They will provide weightages to CAT scores, CAP scores, and in some cases Applicants Profile, for making final admission offers.

It is very much possible that one of the new IIMs may not send you final admission offer while others offer you admission based on your CAT 2017 scores and other parameters.
