Step 2: Calculation of Application Rating (AR)

For those who clear initial screening, AR is calculated based on Gender and marks in class 10th, 12th and Graduation Marks. 4% marks are allocated only to female candidates for gender diversity.

AR is calculated as weighted average of CAT Score and Application Rating. 

AR = 0.56 (CAT Score) + 0.1 (10th marks) + 0.15 (12th Marks) + 0.15 (Graduation Marks) + 0.04 (Gender weightage)

Based on the above AR, applicants are shortlisted and called for WAT and PI round.

4% marks for academic diversity are allotted only to non engineering candidates.
