Admissions Process

The selection of candidates for admission to the 2019-2021 batch of MBA at VGSoM, IIT Kharagpur is a two-step process. In the first step, candidates are short-listed for Written Analysis Test and Personal Interview (WAT-PI) from among candidates who have a valid CAT score equal to or above the cut-offs. Applied for the programme and satisfy the eligibility criteria for the programme. Overall CAT score out of 20 and application rating (AR) out of 20 will be added to get the marks for shortlisting candidates to be called for WAT-PI. The application rating looks at the applicants’ academic performance (marks obtained) in 10th Standard Examination, 12th Standard Examination, Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree Examination and the candidates’ work experience. Although the online application portal captures sectional scores and percentile as part of CAT, the same is not used for application rating. An overseas category candidate who applies with a GMAT score instead of a CAT Score should have a total scaled score of at least 750. In the second step, the final selection will be based on application rating, performance in CAT for domestic students and GMAT for international students, and the candidate’s performance in the WAT-PI round.
