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:

  1. IBSAT Cut-Off: A cut-off for all the nine campuses of IBS is released and students are called for the other rounds.
  1. Booking a Slot: For the selection briefing, candidates must book a slot (time, date, and city) on the IBS website. 
  1. IBSAT Selection Briefings: the ICFAI commences the selection briefings in 54 locations. The candidates are told about the culture of the institute.
  1. 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. Therefore, the selected students will be called for admission.
