Admission Policy

For the 2019 undergraduate intake, there are 120 seats across all degree programmes. ISBF follows a rounds-based rolling admissions policy. More detail on individual rounds is contained in the Admissions Calendar below.

Rolling admissions means that other things equal, applicants of earlier rounds have a higher likelihood of being accepted onto the programme of their choice. It also means that applications will be closed as soon as all seats are filled.

An Important Update

The next iMET date is 23rd August 2019. Candidates must appear for the same in order to be eligible for shortlisting for the PI.

Admission Process

In every Admission Round, the process comprises of three steps –

Step 1: Filling the Application Form

Step 2: Appearing for the ISBF entrance test (iMET), based on which candidates will be shortlisted for Step 3

Step 3: Appearing for the Personal Interview (PI)

Once all three steps are completed, a candidate’s application will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee in full. The final admission decision will take into consideration the iMET score (weighted – 50%), performance in the PI (weighted – 30%) and Class XII Board examination scores (weighted – 20%), where available.

Where Class XII Board scores are not available, iMET and PI scores are considered. Candidates who perform well in the admission process may be made an unconditional offer of admission, even if their Class XII Board scores have not been declared until then.

Step 1: Filling the Application Form

You may fill the ISBF Application Form online or offline. The application fee is INR 2,500.

Step 3: Appearing for the Personal Interview (PI)

Candidates shortlisted on the basis of iMET will be invited to appear for the final step of the admission process – the Personal Interview (PI).
