Hello all,

ISB has just announced an additional intake round - Cycle 3 - with a deadline of Jan 15, 2019. This comes as a breather for applicants who could not aim for the original Dec 15, deadline as the last for ISB for the Class of 2020 (2019 intake), as it was supposed to be earlier.

The application fees for Cycle 3, however, has been increased to INR 7500, and the final offer decision will be made by March 5, 2019.

These details are as they stand now at the following link at the ISB website: https://www.isb.edu/pgp/admissions/admission-calendar

This is good news.
Apart from additional fees would there be additional consequences?
Like no Scholarship opportunities or something? I was in a rush before but now I can breathe.

Very interesting development. Third deadline is a first for ISB.

Any idea what may have prompted ISB to take this call?

Very happy to read this. It allows me to earn few more points on GMAT and then apply.

However, I am not sure what it means for a premium school to make so many last moment announcements. A tier 1 global school won’t do this, in my opinion.

Was wondering about the same but there is no update on ISB website.

It still simply says 50% scholarships in round 1 and all full waivers in round 1.

No split for round 2, 3 mentioned. At least couldn’t find.

As far as scholarships are concerned, there is no announcement on those yet, but of course, the amount of scholarships available to R3 applicants will be lower than what it would have been for Round 2, as Round 2 candidates will also get some (if not all).

Other than that, the number of seats in Round 3 will of course be smaller than what would have been there in the earlier Round 2. Therefore, we would advise that only those candidates who really need the Round 3 option should be taking it. This announcement, however, is a great relief for people who had given up hope of applying by Dec 15, and thought they would need to wait till next year.

Though there's an update on the official website but the deadlines link on the portal still shows only uptil cycle-2. Tried calling them up, no response.

Anyone else tried confirming verbally?

Perhaps that is because it is still to be updated.
Mr. Aditya Atreya from admissions Team has confirmed it on one of the Telegram Groups.

If you still want to be sure, write a mail to ISB Adcom, inquiring about the same. They generally reply very quickly to the written communication.

You will have to take the GMAT by Jan 15th.
And yes, you can submit the application with unofficial scores, but request PearsonVUE to report your official score to ISB by Jan 15th.

How would that be possible. Meaning even if I decide to take the gmat 2 days before the deadline, say Jan 13th. PearsonVue will need at least 3 weeks as mentioned on their website to send the scores to ISB. Isn't it? So, how long after the deadline will ISB be accepting the official scores

That's correct, but the date of reporting the scores is only considered.
IMO, if you report the score before the Jan 15th deadline, then ISB will accept the scores.

You can take the test even on the 15th of January, and submit the unofficial score you will get to complete your app and submit it. However, please keep the following in mind:
- You must still send the official score report to ISB and put in the date on which you have requested this in the ISB online app.
- Keep your app ready and note that the deadline is 6pm for the 15th.
