Candidates applying from the universities that are not providing Honours degree should clearly mention "Honours degree not provided" in their applications. Those who have appeared in the final examination may also apply but their final selection will be subject to securing the required percentage of marks in the qualifying examination.
The Candidate with Chemistry (Hons.) should provide only Honours marks, whereas the candidates from those universities that do not offer Honours degree, the marks should be provided as the overall percentage for Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. The candidates whose marks are given in CGPA or CPI, are advised to multiply their respective scores by a factor of 10 to obtain the percentage equivalent, e.g. if the CGPA/CPI score is 7.2, the equivalent percentage should be 72.00%
Eligible applicants will be required to appear for a written test based on multiple-choice questions.
