Deciding Factors for TISS 2018 Selection Procedure


1. Nation Entrance Exam (TISSNET)


To enter the selection procedure of TISS, Candidates need to qualify TISSNET 2018 exam. To qualify, candidates need to obtain at least 35% (for SC/ST) and 45% (for others) in the exam. Candidates who qualify will be called for the second round of the selection process.


2. Pre-Interview Test/Group Discussion (PIT-GD)


This is the second stage of the selection procedure. TISS also checks the analytical ability and communication skills of the candidates through a pre-interview test and group discussion.


3. Personal Interview (PI)


In order to know a candidate better before offering admission to his/her, TISS organises personal interviews. In this round, candidates are generally asked about their academics, work experience (if any), goals in life, current affairs etc.


To get admission in TISS, candidates need to perform almost equally well at all the stages. All the three stages of the selection process have different weightage. Although TISSNET exam has the maximum weightage, the selection of a candidate is based on the cumulative performance in TISSNET, PIT/GD and PI. Let’s see the marks given to the each factor.
