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.

Just provide them your 4th Semester Marksheet for the eligibility. But at the time of admission you must have your degree or Course Completion certificate.
