GD-WAT-PI Enhanced

Program Fee: Rs. 6,000 + GST (waivers applicable. Refer wavier details below.)

After receiving the shortlist offer from your chosen B-schools, you need to face the second round of the selection procedures. When it comes to the round of selection, one size does not fit all. Each institute has a different selection methodology to follow.

Generally, B-schools conduct Group Discussions and Personal Interviews which are the most common routes for selecting the students for final admissions. However, over the past few years the B-schools are ruling out the importance of Group Discussion and preferring Written Ability Test or Essay Writing as it brings more insight into the thinking ability and analytical skills of the candidates.

Some B-schools have come up with unique parameters for the admission criteria, which they claim, enable them to get a better perspective on the candidates’ qualities. SPJIMR Mumbai conducts WAT, Psychometric Test and two rounds of Group Interview. MICA conducts a unique Group Activity followed by a PI. Hence, this specialised program shall give you the additional guidance and institute specific sessions to convert your GD-WAT-PI call from your dream b-school.

The GD-WAT-PI-Enhanced program offers series of institute specific sessions and National Achievers' Workshop conducted by alumni of top b-schools to help you convert the most coveted call.

For all Students who have received call from any of the Top 30 B Schools as listed by IMS
