Changes in the Selection Process for PGDM and PGDM-IB Courses at
FORE School of Management, New Delhi

FORE School of Management, New Delhi, a premier B-School has started accepting online applications for its “Silver-Jubilee” batch of PGDM and 10th batch for PGDM-IB from September 23, 2015.

This year, a few changes have been introduced. For starters, FORE shall accept CAT-2015, XAT-2016 and GMAT scores (the score should be of a date on or after January 1, 2014) for admission to the PGDM and PGDM-IB courses.

FORE has also decided to do away with Group Discussion from the selection process from this year i.e. the Batch joining in year 2016. Selection will have a separate component on General Awareness and carry a weight of 5% in the selection. The Personal Interview will be in-depth and the weight increased from the present 15% to 20%. The weight for Written Ability Test (WAT) shall remain unchanged. The other components of the selection process will be CAT/XAT/GMAT score, academic performance and work experience.

To promote diversity, a weight of 5%, over and above the selection criteria mentioned above, is earmarked for applicants from Jammu & Kashmir, the North Eastern States (namely Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura and Sikkim) and the states of Southern India (namely Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Telengana).
