Later the combined list of candidates shall be considered for further processing and then published by the conducting IIM i.e. IIM Raipur. Next, from the combined list, candidates will be called for WAT and PI (Writing Aptitude Test and Personal Interview) rounds by the other participating IIM's.
Final Selection Process: Once they Normalize the PI and WAT scores across all sections, centres and IIM's, a combined merit list will be displayed for the entire students to be considered for admissions in all the six new IIM's. Each individual new IIM will take the normalized PI and WAT score of the candidates shortlisted by them and combine it with scores for other criteria like CAT score, profile and any other scores to make their own individual merit list in order to make final offers to candidates.
