 The "V-Connect - Know Your VGSoM" was a huge success, thanks to all the VGSoM aspirants who attended it. We, the Admission Committee, hope that we were able to clarify most of the doubts. 

We received multiple requests from people who missed the V-Connect webinar due to prior commitments, so we have recorded the session and have uploaded it.

Usually the references are not contacted but they may be contacted in few cases if some kind of verification is needed.

Dear Candidate, 

No need to worry. Soft copies of original documents will suffice but try to get the original ones as soon as possible.
