SOP should briefly describe (a) a past project/ research work done (b) a new project/research work the candidate would like to undertake. SOP is restricted to 1000 words. The SOP will aid the admission committee in evaluating an applicant.

 

WRITTEN TEST:

The written test is compulsory and is common for all candidates, irrespective of their discipline or the category in which they apply (TA/RA/PS/IS/SW etc). The test is designed to assess only the numeracy, reading comprehension and writing skills – not the disciplinary knowledge – of the candidates.

Candidates short-listed on the basis of the performance in the written test are invited to appear for the interview, on the same day.

 

SELECTION:

The final selection would be based on the qualifications, recommendations, GATE score, SOP, written test and interview.
