IIM Common Admission Process (CAP) 2023

The journey of pursuing an MBA from the prestigious Indian Institutes of Management (IIM) involves a rigorous selection process. Among the various avenues to secure admission, the Common Admission Process (CAP) stands out as a crucial gateway for aspirants aiming to join the newer IIMs.

Common Admission Process (CAP)

The Common Admission Process, abbreviated as CAP, is a consolidated selection mechanism adopted by the nine new IIMs for MBA/PGP admissions. This streamlined process simplifies the selection procedure for eligible candidates through a series of steps, primarily relying on the CAT (Common Admission Test) scores.

Participating IIMs:

  • IIM Bodh Gaya
  • IIM Jammu
  • IIM Udaipur

Key Highlights of IIM CAP:

  • Rotation-Based Conduct: Every year, one of the nine participating IIMs assumes the responsibility of conducting the CAP. The upcoming CAP 2024 will be conducted by IIM Udaipur.
  • Simplified Process: Under the CAP, candidates need to appear for a single round of Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI) conducted by the chosen IIM, eliminating the need to appear separately for each institute.
  • CAT Cut-offs: The qualifying CAT cut-offs serve as the initial benchmark for shortlisting candidates for the WAT-PI round across all participating IIMs.
  • Admission Announcement: Following the WAT-PI round, the CAP conducting IIM will release the final merit list by May. Individual institutes then make admission offers to the selected candidates based on their merit.
