For such cases, admission will be provisional subject to submission of final mark sheet by December 31, 2021.

  • Criteria for final selection to PGDBA (Batch 2021-23):
    A candidate's final score for selection is calculated on the basis of Table1, which indicates the criteria and their weights to be used for the final selection to PGDBA for the batch 2021-23.
    Table 1: Criteria and weights for final selection to PGDBA 2021
    Criterion Weights
    Written Test 45
    Personal interview (PI) 40
    Points for Class XII marks (Details shown in Table 2) 08
    Work experience (Details shown in Table 3) 07
    Total 100

    The method of allotting points for Class XII percentage based on aggregate marks is given in Table 2 below:

    Class XII Marks (y in %) Points
    y > 95 8
    90 < y ≤ 95 7
    85 < y ≤ 90 6
    80 < y ≤ 85 5
    75 < y ≤ 80 4
    70 < y ≤ 75 3
    65 < y ≤ 70 2
    60 ≤ y ≤ 65 1
    y < 60 0

    * For computing the percentage of marks obtained in Class XII, the aggregate marks of all subjects that appear in the mark sheet or grade sheet would be considered irrespective of whether the Board considers them for calculation of percentage.

    For work experience, a maximum of seven points will be awarded depending on the length of service as on February 28, 2021 (Please refer to Table 3). Only formal work experience after completion of qualifying degree will be considered. Training/project work/work done as an integral part of curricular requirement will not be considered.
    Table 3: Points for work experience in completed months
    Work experience (x in Months) Points
    x > 60 1
    48 < x ≤ 60 3
    36 < x ≤ 48 6
    24 ≤ x ≤ 36 7
    12 ≤ x < 24 5
    1 ≤ x < 12 3
    x = 0 0
