Shortlisting Criteria

Selection Process for Admission to PGP (2013-15).

The selection of candidates for admission to PGP (2013-15) will be undertaken in 2 phases after CAT 2012. The first phase would involve shortlisting of candidates to be called for Group Discussion and Personal Interview (GD/PI). The second phase would involve the preparation of final merit list, based on which candidates will be offered admission to the said course. The process to be followed in each of these phases is as follows:

Phase 1.        Shortlisting for GD/PI

The minimum requirements to be followed for the shortlisting of candidates in this phase are as follows:

Category

SSC or Equivalent (%)
HSC or Equivalent (%)

A normalized score * for the graduation marks will be calculated for all the candidates. For the candidates who satisfy the criteria as presented in Table 1, a merit list will be prepared based on their normalized graduation score in their respective disciplines. Required number of candidates from this merit list will be called for GD/PI.

Note 1:
*Normalized Score: Suppose m (%) denotes the average of the percentage marks obtained by all candidates in a disciplinary background and s (%) denotes the standard deviation of the corresponding percentage marks. If a candidate has x (%) marks, his/her normalized score is (x‐m)/s. These normalized scores so computed are comparable across disciplines.

Note 2:
All the candidates shortlisted for GD and/or PI, and whose graduation scores are given as CGPA in their respective marksheets, must bring a certificate to the interview hall from the competent authority of their University/Institution stating either of the following:

  • The conversion formula certified by the University/Institution for converting the CGPA into corresponding percentage of marks
  • The absence of any conversion formula certified by the University/Institution for converting the CGPA into corresponding percentage of marks. (In such cases, the percentage marks would be calculated as CGPA*100/CGPA Scale).
  • Phase 2:        Final Admission Offer

    A score (M) will be calculated for each candidate using the following formula, which will be used for preparing the merit list for the final selection.

    M = p1m1+p2m2+p3m3

    Where,

    m1 – mark obtained in GD;         p1 - weightage of GD marks (15 %)

    m2– mark obtained in PI;            p2- weightage of PI marks (40 %)

    m3 – total CAT score;                p3 – weightage of CAT absolute scores (45 %)

    However, there will be a cutoff on the marks obtained in GD (m1) and in PI (m2)as follows:

    Category
    Minimum Percentage of Marks to be scored in
    GD (m1)
    PI(m2)
    GEN/OBC
    25%

    SC/ST/DA
