Different shortlisting criteria in 2016
As against the shortlisting criteria adopted by FMS Delhi earlier, a different process of shortlisting has been arrived on the basis of composite scores awarded with sectional weightage to the candidates. The Composite Score has been computed by giving weightage of 40%, 30%, and 30% to the scores of VRC, DI/LR, and QA Sections respectively as provided by the CAT Centre for the CAT 2015 Examination for candidates who registered with FMS. For example: Composite Score = ∑(Score in Section * Weightage)/Max Marks for the Section.

FMS Delhi for the first time has considered award of weightage to sectional scores of CAT 2015. In earlier years only overall CAT percentile used to be the sole criterion to shortlist the candidates for PI round.
Accordingly, cut off composite score for PI round is 59.430 as against overall percentile score of 98.25 in last year shortlisting.
