Admission Process

ISBF follows a rolling admissions policy for its undergraduate programmes. This means that the sooner one applies, the higher the likelihood of being made an admission offer, and for a programme of one’s choice.

The admission process comprises of three steps –

  1. Filling the Application Form
  2. Appearing for the ISBF entrance test (iMET)
  3. Appearing for the Personal Interview (PI)

Eligibility for Applying

To be eligible to apply for the next undergraduate session at ISBF, a candidate must either have completed Class XII at the time of applying, or be completing it in the same year in which he/she seeks to begin undergraduate study at ISBF. If the Class XII Board examination results are available at the time of applying, these must be submitted for the Application Form to be considered as complete.

Candidates from any stream, or studying any combination of subjects, can apply to any of the undergraduate programmes offered at ISBF, subject to the points below:

  • Candidates applying for BSc (Hons) Economics or BSc (Hons) Economics & Finance must have studied/be studying Mathematics in Class XII.
  • Candidates applying for any of the other four undergraduate programmes – BSc (Hons) Accounting & Finance, BSc (Hons) Economics & Management, BSc (Hons) Business & Management, BSc (Hons) Management & Digital Innovation must have studied Mathematics up to Class X.

Filling the Application Form

Candidates can fill and submit the Application Form, along with the necessary documents, via the online application portal www.applytoisbf.com. Alternatively, the form can be obtained from the ISBF website or campus, filled and submitted (physically or by courier), along with the necessary documents. The Application Form is then reviewed by the Admissions Committee, which shortlists candidates for the next two steps, based on the Class XII Board examination results, where available, and the Statement of Purpose submitted as part of the form.

iMET and PI

All shortlisted candidates must appear for both the next steps, i.e. iMET and PI. These are conducted in multiple locations across India and must be completed at the same centre by a candidate.

iMET tests a candidate’s ability to reason logically and apply concepts and techniques learnt in Mathematics and English up to Class X (based on the syllabi of the major Indian Boards).

In the PI, a candidate is tested for attitude, motivation, communication and academic curiosity.

Selection Criteria

The selection criteria for the undergraduate programmes comprises of:

  1. ISBF entrance test (iMET) – 50% weight
  2. Personal Interview – 30% weight
  3. Class XII Board examination scores (where available) – 20% weight

Offer of Admission

Candidates who perform exceedingly well in the admission process may be made an early, unconditional offer of admission to ISBF, even if their Class XII results have not yet been declared.

Other candidates who are selected will be made conditional offers of admission, which will be contingent upon achieving a specified minimum score in their Class XII Board examinations.
