TISS is one of the most prestigious institutes as far as the field of Human Resources Management is concerned. The selection procedure as well as the pedagogy is unique.
We now look at last year’s paper, to get an insight into what is to be expected for the current year. The National Entrance Test for admission to Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS-NET), 2013 changed significantly as compared to the earlier years. Overall, the paper had 100 questions, each carrying 1 mark and with no negative marking for wrong answer. The paper was without sections, and had questions from the areas of English Language (30 questions), Mathematical Ability (30 questions) and General Awareness (40 questions).
There was little pressure as 100 questions were to be attempted in 100 minutes.
GA-GK-CA section was balanced across areas. History, Terminologies, Social issues, Current affairs etc. was covered.
Some examples are: UID, child labour, FDI, creamy layer, domestic violence, sex ratio, organic farming etc., SC/ST act, Amendment under which the preamble was modified, person behind “Land Gift” movement, importance of December 6, 2012 etc., Prime ministers of India, First Woman teacher for Dalits, Moral policing, Green hunt, Focus of the 12th five year plan, Ranvir Sena, Commissions/committees formed by the government (Mandal, Tendulkar, Sachar), Chairman of the planning commission, Manesar problems of Maruti Suzuki, FDI controversies, Mohammad Yunus, percentage of informal workers in labour force, author of 'The myth of the holy cow', state speaking Telugu, who is Hellen Keller etc.
Language section related questions included analogies, antonyms, FIBs and RC.
Questions from Mathematical Ability included Time & Work, Time, Speed & Distance, Averages, Ratios, Percentages etc. Very basic stuff.
No sectional cutoffs exist.
To be frank, the test is easy. Anyone can easily solve 40-45 questions from the 60 questions give. For a good, well prepared student, answering around 50-55 questions should be possible. Accuracy also is likely to be high since the questions are not tricky.
Assuming that the same trend continues this year (2014 intake) also, we expect the overall cutoff for the core HRM program to be a narrow band in the range of 85-90 marks. The cutoffs for the other programs would be marginally lower but again in similar tight bands.

National Entrance Test(TISS-NET) is computer based test and it is going to be held on 4-01-2020 and the duration of the test is 1:40 mins.I am afraid that you are not eligible with an active backlog for this test.Actually you quoted that your supplementary exam was on 20-12-2019 and I am sure that your results of that exam will not be announced anytime soon .So, there is no chance for you to write the TISS-NET exam.I wish you a better luck next time and make sure that while you are writing the test again in the next year, do not maintain an active backlog.
As per the official, 27% of the seats are reserved for candidates from OBCs belonging to the non-creamy layer as notified by the National Commission for Backward Classes.
Officially there is no any information about it, You might be considered as General category if your OBC certificate get rejected. But I would suggest you to contact the official to get the exact detail.
sorry to say this year you can not apply. the eligibility criteria is Candidates who will successfully complete, in all respects, all the requirements of their final year eligible degree (including all examinations) by Monday, June 8, 2020, are also eligible to apply.
or Those candidates who are in final year, but cannot submit the degree certificate and grade/mark sheet at the time of admission are required to submit these latest by September 30, 2020.
hope you may understand.
I think almost all the form filling procedure requires any one proof of your eligibility, either it is GATE or TISSNET,
As you have mentioned that your degree has not arrived yet so in that case you can upload your penultimate semester mark sheet or course completion certificate.
But at the time of counselling you must have all the details with you.
