The Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) announced admissions to all its full-time postgraduate degree programs for 2013-15 for its Mumbai, Tuljapur, Guwahati, and Hyderabad campuses today. The TISS National Entrance Test (TISS NET) which will go online for the first time will be held on January 13, 2013. Candidates will also have the choice of taking the test in a paper format – the choice will only have to be mentioned in the application from.
A faculty from TISS speaking exclusively to PaGaLGuY said, “The exam is being conducted online as well as in the traditional paper format since TISS caters to the marginalised sections of the society as well who may not be very comfortable with computers.”
TISS is also contemplating moving away from the earlier two-paper format to a single entrance exam for all the candidates. Although it could not be ascertained, all the institutes falling under the TISS umbrella might announce cut-offs for admission to the respective programs if the new change is implemented.
