Alright, so as per my knowledge you can enter this school but two tracks-
1. By Classes préparatoires aux grandes écoles (for French residents)
2. By the SAI admissions process
I won’t talk about the 1st method because I didn’t/couldn’t apply through it.
The SAI track has three sessions. The first session is reserved for students who have taken the GMAT only. The other two sessions are open for GMAT, GRE, TAGE-MAGE test takers.
Although I did sit the IELTS, you do not really need it if you apply with your GMAT or GRE test scores. Although taking the IELTS might come in handy when you apply for the French Visa through Campus France. More on the Visa process later. I haven’t applied for one yet. But just so you know it’s much different from applying for your regular vacation visa.
Back to SAI.
With the SAI process you week be given the option to choose upto 5 colleges (no, there are no separate application fees) from:
Though I only chose the top 3 colleges.
After successful completion of the SAI form, you may be called for an interview, which is generally taken by 3 French officers and is face-to-face.
And if you pass the interview you may receive an offer from the one or more of the universities you selected, depending on how the respective universities found your application and interview to be.
Then you select your preferred college and that is pretty much it.
