How to know when to participate in CAP 2020?
The shortlisted candidates will be able to check their CAP 2020 dates on website of respective IIMs and will also be informed on their registered mail only after the CAT 2020 result is declared. It is expected that CAP 2020 will commence in mid February 2020. The candidates who are not shortlisted by the 9 new IIMs will not be sent further communication.

 

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 Ranchi. 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 2020

 

Step 1: Shortlist by Individual IIMs
Each of the new IIMs will shortlist the candidates for CAP 2020 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 MBA admission 2020 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 2020 Coordinator - IIM Ranchi
Each CAP participating IIM will forward its list of shortlisted candidates to the CAP 2020 coordinating IIM Ranchi.

 

Step-3: IIM Ranchi to create Final List of Shortlisted Candidates for CAP 2020 Calls
IIM Ranchi will combine the list of all participating IIMs and prepare a final list of candidates for CAP 2020 Calls. IIM Ranchi will then send out calls to these candidates. More than 17,000 candidates are expected to get New IIMs CAP 2020 Calls.

 

Step 4: Candidates to participate in PI & WAT Process
CAP 2020 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 2020 Scores to be sent by IIM Ranchi to participating IIMs
Based on the performance of the candidates in the PI & WAT round, IIM Ranchi will prepare the scores for the CAP Round. This will be sent to all the participating IIMs after CAP round is over.

 

Step 6: All 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 2020 scores and other parameters.
