Getting Into IIITB : Tips and Procedure

Hope you people are preparing well for the exams. As the topic suggests I will be talking about how to get into IIITB right from the collection of the form to the date of the joining.

These articles are all from my personal experience which I would share with you. But as time passes there may be certain changes as selection procedures do not remain the same way for years. So let's start with the procedures.

Firstly, the forms are made available around February which you need to check constantly in this LINK. As soon as the forms are made available, you need to get a copy of it or apply online in the same link. You will be charged accordingly for the form and moreover you are likely to get all the detailed information in the same site.  There are three ways to get into this college i.e., IIITB Online Exam, GATE or GRE. You will get enough time for your GATE results to get announced before the last date for form submission gets past. So decide well that which way you want to apply.

Secondly, after the form submission you will have two options i.e., either to sit for the test or directly go for the interview. Those who apply through GATE/GRE will get the second opportunity(I was of the first category !). Anyways, you will get the test date while filling up the form and accordingly will be asked to appear for the test on the selected date in the respected city. The test is mostly conducted in the month of April. You can find my suggestions for the test in this LINK.

Thirdly, once you clear the written test you will be notified for the interview through email within 2 weeks along with the date of your interview. The interview will be most likely in the month of May. Preparing for the interview is the most important task because this is the most tough stage where you need to compete with huge number of students just to be in the top 150 students (The strength in one batch is around 150).
You will find my suggestions for interview preparation in this LINK. You can also have a look on my interview experience as well.

Finally if you get through the interview process as well then you will be notified for the admission through email. You will be asked to confirm your seat by paying certain amount of money which will get adjusted to your first semester fees. So that was the entire process to get to the MTech course in IIITB.

I divided this article into links as long articles are really tough to read. Anyways all the best for you exams and most importantly your future. For any further queries just post in your questions and I will answer them as soon as possible or get in touch with me in Facebook.
