Admissions 2012

The website for admissions 2012 is now open.

Aspirants for the UG (BS) programme can start applying from today (Feb 1) while aspirants for PG (M.Sc(Engg), Ph.D, M.E, M.Tech, MBA, MDes etc.) can start applying from Feb 6. The key difference from last year is that no offline applications will be entertained for both UG and PG. Everything will be online. The offer letters will also be online and the fees to be paid on joining will be also online.

The admission criteria for each program is clearly spelled out in the information brochure. Please read through it carefully. The cutoff marks in JEE/AIEEE etc. for applying to the BS program is mentioned. The last year cutoff marks in GATE etc to be called for interview for the Ph.D program is mentioned and use this as a guideline. Emails to me regarding this year cutoffs will not help because cutoffs are decided by the number of students applying.

This year, GATE is written by 9 lakh students. The scanned copy of the OMR (answer sheet) of each student, the marks of each student and the cut offs for qualification in GATE will be put online. Similarly, for IISc admissions, the cutoffs at each stage (if there are multiple lists) will be put online. While it will be ensured that this will be done as soon as possible, it can not be done earlier than possible because lists have to be approved by competent authority. Emails and phone calls to me will not help.
