About Admissions through BOARDS

This mode is for admissions to our dual degree programmes, for applicants who have obtained high scores in class 12 board exams of any central or state board. In appreciation of their distinction, applicants in this mode will be shortlisted and called directly for an interview.

The programme prepares students for research-oriented jobs and higher studies. The duration of the programme is 5-years. This mode of admission is open for the following dual degree programmes.
