Frequently Asked Questions
What is the eligibility criteria to apply for the programme?
To pursue this programme, students must have studied Mathematics up to Class X.
Does ISBF Offer ECA/CCA/SPORTS Category Admissions?
We, at ISBF, believe excellence in anything increases your potential in everything. We are committed to academic excellence and strive to make achievement of such excellence a habit in our students.
Extending this notion of excellence to Extra-Curricular Activities, Co-Curricular Activities and Sports, we offer admissions under the ECA/CCA/Sports Category, for the LSE undergraduate programmes. Through this, we identify and nurture excellence in a wide array of activities.
What is the admission process for the programme?
Admission to ISBF is a 3-step process. The first step is to fill out the application form with all the required details. Next, you have to appear for the ISBF Entrance Test (iMET). Finally, the shortlisted students will have to appear for a Personal Interview.
Is it necessary to write the iMET test?
Candidates who have obtained a composite SAT score of 1350 (within the 5-year validity period) or more will be exempted from iMET and will be invited directly for the Personal Interview.
Can you give me more details about the ISBF Entrance Test (iMET) examination?
iMET tests a candidate’s ability to reason logically, assimilate information meaningfully from multiple reading sources and apply concepts and techniques learnt in Mathematics up to Class X (based on the syllabi of the major Indian Boards).
For more clarity, candidates are advised to see the sample iMET question paper, along with its answer key and guidance on preparation. Click here to download the sample iMET question paper.
The BSc (Honours) Business & Management (or “B&M”) programme is comparable with the Bachelor of Business Administration (or “BBA”) programme more commonly offered in India. However, on account of being significantly more analytical and application-oriented, the B&M programme serves as a much better stepping stone (than the BBA) for an MBA, a Master’s in Management or working as a manager or entrepreneur, all of which require high levels of problem-solving ability.
