In a significant development for MBA aspirants eyeing admission to top-notch B-schools, IIM Kashipur has successfully conducted the Common Admission Process (CAP) 2024. The CAP serves as a pivotal platform for the selection and interview of candidates aspiring to pursue flagship MBA and PGP courses across ten premier IIMs, including the recently added IIM Nagpur.
Traditionally held to shortlist candidates for Personal Interviews (PI) seeking admission to MBA/PGP programs in participating IIMs, the CAP has expanded its reach with the inclusion of IIM Nagpur in 2024. Spearheading this year’s CAP, IIM Kashipur coordinated the comprehensive selection process.
The shortlisting process involves the announcement of tentative cut-offs in October, with the final cut-offs decided post the release of CAT results. For CAP 2024, shortlisting for PI is solely based on percentile cut-offs. Candidates who have chosen flagship MBA/PGP programs in at least one of the participating IIMs during CAT form submission are eligible for shortlisting.
PI Notification and Registration:
IIM Kashipur is set to notify shortlisted candidates for PI via email in the latter part of January. The PI registration portal will concurrently open, requiring mandatory registration for participation in the PI process under CAP 2024. Notably, candidates have the opportunity to rectify any errors made during CAT form submission in the educational qualification and work experience categories.
Online PI Process:
In a move aimed at convenience and accessibility, the CAP 2024 Personal Interviews will be conducted online. This strategic decision seeks to minimize the need for candidates to travel extensively for MBA admission interviews, ensuring a more streamlined and accessible process.
Score Normalization and Post-PI:
Candidates will have the chance to correct errors in their CAT form, ensuring accurate representation of educational qualifications and work experience. Normalized PI scores will be provided to candidates following the declaration of merit lists, offering transparency and clarity in the evaluation process.
As the CAP 2024 process concludes, participating IIMs will proceed to create their merit lists and extend admission offers. The online PI process and streamlined procedures signify a commitment to enhancing the candidate experience, further solidifying the CAP’s role as a gateway to premier B-schools in India. Aspirants are advised to stay abreast of further updates and announcements from IIM Kashipur and participating institutes.
