IBSAT Selection Process
Before the IBSAT merit list is released the candidate has to go through a selection process to get admission to any of the IBS campuses. We have briefly explained the IBSAT process below:
- IBSAT Cut-Off: A cut-off for all the nine campuses of IBS is released and students are called for the other rounds.
- Booking a Slot: For the selection briefing, candidates must book a slot (time, date, and city) on the IBS website.
- IBSAT Selection Briefings: the selection briefings are conducted in 54 locations by the ICFAI. Candidates are introduced to the culture of the institute in these briefings.
- GD/PI round: In the GD round, a group of eight to ten applicants are given a subject to discuss and are asked to articulate their opinions in detail. Members of the selection committee interview the shortlisted candidates during the PI phase. The primary objective of PI is to assess a candidate’s general knowledge, communication abilities, and mental and verbal clarity.
After all these rounds the final merit list will be released and the selected candidates will be informed. These students will be called for admission.
No, the IBSAT cut-off is the list which specifies the minimum marks required to be called for the selection process. However, the IBSAT merit list has the names of all the candidates who are selected based on their previous academic records, PI and group discussion.
The parameters which decide the merit list are the past academic records i.e. 10th class, 12th class and Graduation records. Also, the candidate’s performance in Group discussions and Personal Interview helps in preparing the IBSAT merit list.
IBSAT is a computer-based test and is conducted only in online mode. ICFAI Foundation for Higher Education conducts the exam once a year.
Multiple choice questions are asked in IBSAT. The candidate has to answer 140 questions in 120 minutes.
