Why Video Based Assessment in place of WAT & PI? IIM Indore Clarifies..
Clarifying the need for Video Based Assessment process in final selection process, IIM Indore has shared, “Owing to the ongoing COVID Pandemic, the Admissions Committee of IIM Indore, after due deliberations and considerations, has decided to drop the WAT & in-person Interview components for this year. In lieu of WAT and in-person interviews, the committee decided to use Video based assessment for this year. And hence, the final admission will be offered based on the Composite Score as per the calculation mentioned above.”
