Hi Guys,
I also got a call from IIM EPGP and wondering about the same WAT. Any help is much appreciated

Hi,

Can someone please help me with the WAT format? How much time is allotted? Is it pen-paper based? Any pointer about how WAT is graded - content, structure...

Also if the R1 interviewees can give some topics that they faced, it would be helpful to get the feel of arena.


Thanks,
Sid

I got an invite as well. Do you know what areas to focus into apart from candidates profile? Do they ask opinions on government policies(demonitization, GST etc) and economy?
