7 key steps in New IIMs CAP 2017
Step 1: Shortlist by Individual IIMs
Each of the 9 IIMs will shortlist the candidates for CAP 2017 round 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 2017-19 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 2017 coordinator - IIM Rohtak
Each CAP participating IIM will then forward its list of shortlisted candidates to the CAP 2017 coordinating IIM Rohtak.
Step-3: IIM Rohtak to create Final List of Shortlisted Candidates for CAP 2017 Calls
IIM Rohtak will combine the list of all participating IIMs and prepare a final list of candidates for CAP 2017 Calls. IIM Rohtak will then send out calls to these candidates. More than 10,000 candidates are expected to get New IIMs CAP Calls.
Step 4: Candidates to participate in PI & WAT Process
CAP 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 2017 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: 9 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 2016 scores and other parameters.
