Selection Process Through Other Entrance Exams
Students who are not interested in taking part in DTE CAP can apply for popular B-Schools individually with a state or national-level entrance test core.
These institutes may shortlist the candidates based on their entrance test scores.
The shortlisted candidates have to take part in other stages of the selection process that involve a Group Discussion, Written Ability Test, and Personal Interview.
The institutes decide the mode of the selection process.
The final selection for MBA/MMS course is based on the candidate’s performance in all stages of the selection process.
