After the CAT results are released, it is important to begin preparing for the next rounds of admissions. Candidates will have to review the process of admissions for the colleges they apply to as most institutes have a separate selection procedure.
The admission process across the IIMs also varies. The old IIMs require students to undergo the WAT and PI admission rounds. On the other hand, the new IIMs have a combined selection procedure called the Common Admission Process (CAP).
Institutes such as FMS Delhi have a two-step selection procedure of extempore followed by a personal interview for admissions. MDI Gurgaon follows the traditional admission process of WAT-GP-PI while IMT Ghaziabad has a Group Exercise followed by a Personal Interview.
Since each institute has an individual system of cut-offs and selection procedures, here is a basic outline of the most common steps including personal interviews, written ability tests and group discussions.
The WAT round is conducted before the personal interview. It is a 15-30 minute long written exam that focuses on your writing skills and how you structure your thoughts. As there is no particular topic for this selection round, candidates should stay well-versed in common and diverse topics. Know more
As the name suggests, group discussions have a group of candidates partaking in a conversation the aim of which is to analyze the candidate's communication skills, ability to think on their feet, leadership skills, etc. Thus, composing yourself well in front of the panel can greatly enhance your chances of success.

This is the final selection process for most colleges. It is the process where the candidates and the panel have a one-to-one interaction. This is the most unpredictable selection round as it is quite subjective in nature. Some topics that are generally suggested in terms of preparation for the personal interview are past work experience, graduation subjects and projects (especially for freshers), achievements, and other pointers mentioned in the CV.
