The B School Admit battle does not end with you performing well in the various tests. The second stage of selection, i.e., the GD/WAT(Essay) and PI round, is equally important. Every Institute has a different & specific Process for the second stage of selection.
Started with 3 WATs (details of all the 3 is given below) followed by Group exercise (A case is given with specific roles for everyone. Students are asked to discuss the responsibilities according to our roles.) for 20 minutes (First 5 minutes for reading, next 13 minutes for discussing and last 2 minutes for coming to a conclusion) and ends with an extempore and PI with mostly 2 panelists. Before proceeding for Mock PI students are shown a picture and then asked to give it a title in one word or speak about the same for 2-3 minutes. (Like an extempore).
Description of 3 WATs:
WAT 1: A single sheet was given with 5 questions and 5 minutes to write the answers. Questions were general in nature (describe yourself etc.).
WAT 2: A 30 sec video was shown and we had to "interpret" the video by giving a suitable title in 4 points. Do not describe the video. Time duration: 5 min (Topics shared below).
WAT 3: 5 minutes to write your professional, academic and extra-curricular experiences (max 3).
The process involves 3 rounds
1. Two WATs (essay writing) Total time: 30 minutes, Word limit: 250 words
Case study and
Pictorial Description (2 photos are given and candidates have to establish a correlation between them and assign a suitable caption)
2. Three Group exercises (6 people in a group, Panelists: 2.)
