I am an engineering graduate from AKTU Lucknow but I have a backlog in my seventh semester for which exam will held on 20/12/2019, Am I eligible for TISSNET Exam ?

Raviteja Pasupuleti 9th Nov, 2019

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.

Hello Aspirant,

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.

Hi, I have completed my graduation but I have not received my degree yet..will there be an issue because of this while filling the tissnet form? And what all other documents are need to be uploaded while filling up the form? I am from general category.

Aman Raj Student Expert 19th Oct, 2019

Hello Ashi

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.
