The short listing and final selection of PGP (Post Graduate Program), PGP-ABM (Agribusiness Management) and PGP-SM (Sustainable Management) candidates for Batch 2017-2019 will be done in two stages.

In Stage 1, candidates will be shortlisted for Writing Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI) on the basis of CAT 2016 score, previous academic performance, and other criteria. For PGP-SM, minimum work experience of 24 months is an additional eligibility criteria.

Please see table 1 for minimum sectional and total cut-off percentile for short-listing the candidates for WAT- PI.
