The selection process of all major business schools is a multi-stage affair, beginning with the entrance test. The subsequent rounds are a combination of two or more of the following:
Historically, the rounds used to comprise GD and PI. However, in the last couple of years, institutes have started including the WAT as well, in some cases doing away with the GD altogether.
Have a look at the shortlisting Parameters & the second stage GD-WAT PI process of IIFT. IIFT shortlists candidates based on IIFT Scores.
Form Filling - Online Submission beforehand
WAT (20 Minutes, 300 words) + GD (30 - 45 Minutes)
WAT (Essay writing) conducted for 20 minutes (Word limit: less than 300 words) which was followed by GD with 10-11 participants and 2 Panelists (each individual had to speak for 1.5-2 minutes on the topic, giving his/her views. After this round, the floor was left open for discussion for around 10-15 minutes. Hence the entire duration of the GD was 30-45 minutes), ended with a PI with up to 3/4 panelists for less than 20 minutes.
