How to get PI Dates Rescheduled? CAP Chairperson shares the Process
If you are facing clash of PI dates for CAP round and in other B-schools, you can get your CAP dates rescheduled by sending a simple request mail to CAP helpdesk. In a major development to help the candidates who are facing clash of PI dates in CAP and other B-schools, Prof Abhradeep Maiti, CAP Chairperson and Chairperson Admissions, IIM Kashipur has advised the CAP participants, “The candidate can send rescheduling requests (with supporting documents) to the helpline email ID (given on their PI dashboard). We will try to accommodate such requests as far as possible, and the candidate will get a revised PI schedule on their registered email ID.”

 

Not Uploaded Correct Documents with CAP Form? Help is there..
Some candidates who have not been able to upload documents with CAP registration form or some parts of the Registration remained incomplete, there is a recourse available for them to complete it. Sharing the remedy which the candidates should take, the CAP Chairperson has advised through MBAUniverse.com, “ Such candidates are supposed to show their correct documents at the time of Admission (if offered) to the respective IIM. CAP-participating IIMs reserve the right to authenticate supporting documents and reject the candidature of any applicant in case any discrepancy is found at any time, even in the case of any provisional admission.”

Common Admission Process (CAP) 2024 Rules for admission to MBA/PGDM 2024-26 are:

  • Individual IIMs will not prepare shortlist based on CAP cut offs. A common shortlist will be prepared by the CAP coordinating IIM. The shortlisting criteria for all the IIMs participating in the CAP 2024 process are the same.  
  • From the combined list, Candidates will be called for the New IIMs Common Admission Process comprising Common Personal Interview (PI). WAT may not be conducted for admission 2024
  • Request for change of CAP centre 2024 should reach the admission cell/e-mail ID of CAP coordinating IIM on or before the last date which may fall in the last week of January/first week of February, 2024. These requests will be accommodated solely at the discretion of CAP conducting IIM and would be communicated to candidates.
  • Each IIM will take the PI score of the candidates shortlisted by them and combine it with other scores-CAT 2023 Score, Profile score and any other score to make their own individual merit list to make final admission offers to the candidates.
  • Only PI will be conducted commonly for the new IIMs.
  • The final merit list of candidates will be arrived by each IIM according to its own selection criteria.
  • These criteria will be available on the websites of the respective institutes.
  • Candidates may also be informed that attending the CAP 2024 process is compulsory for all the shortlisted candidates.

16.  How to know when to participate in CAP 2024?
The shortlisted candidates can check their CAP 2024 dates on website of respective IIMs and will also be informed on their registered mail. The candidates who are not shortlisted by the 9 new IIMs will not be sent further communication.

 

17.  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 Personal Assessment (PA) scores with CAP Coordinating IIM. 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.

 

18. New IIMs CAP 2024: Step by Step Process

 

Step 1: Shortlist by Individual IIMs
Each of the new IIMs will shortlist the candidates independent of each other. Candidates are shortlisted at the 1st stage around 10 to 12 times of the intake for MBA admission 2024 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 sends shortlist to CAP 2024 Coordinator IIM
Each CAP participating IIM forwards its list of shortlisted candidates to the CAP 2024 coordinating IIM.

 

Step-3: CAP Conducting IIM to create Final List of Shortlisted Candidates for CAP 2024 Calls
CAP coordinating IIM will combine the list of all participating IIMs and prepare a final list of candidates for CAP 2024 Calls. The IIM will then send out calls to these candidates. More than 20,000 candidates are to get New IIMs CAP 2024 Calls.

 

Step 4: Candidates to participate in PI Process
CAP 2024 Personal Assessment (PA) round will only have Personal Interview (PI) as Written Abilities Test (WAT) may not be conducted. Also there will be no Group Discussion. A candidate will be asked to appear in CAP through Online mode instead of at one of the 5 CAP Centers New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai and Kolkata.

 

Step 5: CAP 2024 Scores to be sent by Coordinating IIM to participating IIMs
Based on the performance of the candidates in the PI round, CAP coordinating IIM 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 2023 scores and other parameters.
