CAP 2022 WAT and PI Selection Criteria

It is important for the candidates who wish to participate in CAP 2022 to have a good knowledge of the selection criteria of CAP 2022. The first stages of the selection criteria for IIMs are common for all the institutes but the decision for giving final admission to a candidate and the final stages of the process depend on individual institutes. Candidates can refer to the steps given below for information on how to participate in CAP 2022.

Step 1: Shortlisting of Candidates

Candidates are required to clear the CAT cutoff specified by the individual IIMs to which they have applied for admission. The IIM CAT cutoff percentile is released by IIMs separately and candidates must stay updated with the latest information to ensure that they are eligible for admission to their choice of IIM.

Step 2: Preparation of List of Shortlisted Candidates for CAP 2022

The list of shortlisted candidates is prepared by various IIMs and sent to the institute responsible for conducting the CAP for that particular year. CAP 2022 is being conducted by IIM Tiruchirappalli.

Step 3: Candidates Called for CAP 2022

Once the final list of candidates shortlisted for CAP 2022 has been prepared by IIM Trichy, the candidate will get an invitation to participate. The candidates who have received the call for CAP 2022 have to appear at one of the CAP 2022 test centres and participate in the next round of selection for IIMs.

Step 4: WAT and PI

Invited candidates have to go through the Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI) round of selection at one of the CAP 2022 test centres. Both the tests are conducted on the same day.

Step 5: CAP 2022 Scores Sent to Respective IIMs

Candidates are scored based upon their performance in the WAT and PI and the scores of the candidates are sent to the respective IIMs to which they have applied. The CAP conducting body will be responsible for the preparation of the final scores of a candidate in the WAT / PI round of CAP 2022.

Step 6: Final Selection of Candidates by Various IIMs

The final scores of a candidate for MBA admissions are calculated by individual IIMs based upon the weightage specified in their selection policy. Apart from the WAT / PI scores, a candidate's previous academic performance and work experience are also considered when evaluating them for admission to PGP / MBA / PGDM courses offered by various IIMs.

The candidates who have cleared the criteria specified in the admission policy of various IIMs can then complete the admission process and enroll for admission to their choice of management course. At the time of admission, they will be required to pay the requisite admission fee as well as submit several supporting documents for verification purposes.
