IMT will shortlist the candidates for the CT–GE–PI based on their best available scores in CAT/XAT/GMAT for IMT Ghaziabad and CAT/XAT/GMAT/CMAT for Nagpur and Hyderabad.

The CT–GE–PI will be conducted in February 2017 at Ghaziabad, Nagpur, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Kolkata.

  1. Critical Thinking Test (CT)

After arrival and registration of the shortlisted candidates, there will be a 30 minute long Critical Thinking Test, which will evaluate the candidate on three parameters – critical thinking, written communication skills and innovation & creativity.

  1. Group Exercise (GE)

After the critical thinking test, the candidates will be formed into small groups and will perform a Group Exercise. Each group will be given a problem to solve or a task to perform, which they must do together with discussion among group members. This will take approximately 30 minutes and will evaluate the candidate on four parameters – contribution of ideas, leadership potential, interpersonal skills and communication and attitude.

  1. Personal Interview (PI)

After the Group Exercise, each candidate will go through a personal interview of approximately 15 minutes, during which s/he will be evaluated on four parameters – domain knowledge (academic orientation), communication skills, versatility, relevance of work experience (if applicable), and values & maturity.

Sample question papers for the CT and GE can be downloaded from www.imt.edu/admissions/pgdm/selection-process/.

The final merit of each candidate will be a cumulative weighted average of the Academic Scores, Performance in CT–GE–PI, Overall Candidate Profile, and Work Experience (if applicable).
