IBSAT – 2017 Application Guidelines

Important Instructions

Prior to filling the online application, please read the eligibility criterion given on the reverse of the voucher and also on the website www.ibsindia.org and gather the information needed to complete the process:

Ensure you have a valid email address, telephone number and address before you apply. These should be valid
     throughout the admission process.

Keep the marks sheets of X, XII, Graduation and any other professional qualification ready for calculating
     percentage of marks. The percentage obtained is to be calculated as per the practice followed by the
     Board/University/Institution from where you will be graduating.


If academic institutions offer grade point averages (GPA), they need to be converted into percentage score as per the conversion scheme of that institution. If an institution does not have a conversion scheme for GPA, the equivalence has to be calculated by dividing obtained Cumulative GPA (CGPA) by the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying by 100.

Estimated time to complete this process: 20-30 minutes.
