Eligibility Confusion

When the companies say that students from 2016 batch are eligible, does that mean students passing out in 2016 are eligible OR the students who are in their final years of graduation in 2016 are eligible?

@mridul_3199102 - 2016 batch is usually referred to students who have graduated in 2016.
Students who are in their final year will be able to apply if company mentions “2017 graduates” in their requirements.

@abhyuday_2886586 - almost all the jobs listed in eLitmus requires that the student should be from 2016 batch whereas if we lookup for that same job on some other websites, they say that students from 2017 batch are eligible. It is really confusing :confused:
