This was the case last year....the pattern has been changing each year...so really can't say...the brochure has no mention of the pattern...

hii all

thats quite a shocker. Was expecting TISS to be on 3rd sunday of JAN....anyways got to face it now......
I really am looking forward to cracking TISS.....a few questions for the seniors and everybody else::

1. A very important thing up first, TISS is not an MBA college.....isnt it....so wat is the flagship course out there??? is it MA in HR ?? and wat else is good...i mean which course???

2. What is the total no.of seats ???

3. Placements and fees etc...???

4. Most importantly, wat was the cut off for last year?? and the difficulty level of the paper as welll.....


Thanks a lot in advance.....looking forward to be at TISS

TISS is famous for H.R. and M.S.W..................
As far as seats are concernd for HR only 53 (with reservations)
Placements r good 11lacs p.a.
Fees is also quite low

Paper is of SNAP, NMAT level...........last year around 10000 people took the test. which means around 1200 applicants per seat.............

thanks a [email protected]

one more thing.....how many were called for GD/PI out of the 10k ppl who appeard??

cud u plz put some light on the cut offs as well....and of course the max marks too...he he

The cut-off last year was an absolute figure mentioned in the brochure(dont remember it:huh:) but it was low enough, and paper was easy......at least 5K-6K (approx) qualified...and then it boiled down to how well you could convince the panel about your interest in HR.....be it any course, at TISS the professors in the interview panel can see through you and select the right person...at least that's what I could learn from my experience

You can refer to the last year threads to check more about it....

Hello All,

The posts below have covered almost all aspects. The exam isnt very difficult to crack but clearing the GDΠ is the tough part ... Infrastructure and Faculty is as good as any Top B-School where as the placements surpass many .. Its prolly MBA's best kept secret (for HR) ...

Infact as a precursor i'd recommend all of you to attend Manthan Corporate Sessions on the 20th of Sept. Its gonna be a day full of information and insight thats gonna be attended by many corporate bigwigs as well as student delegates (both students from the top BSchools as well as B-School aspirants). Check out tisshrmlr.com or send in a mail to [email protected] for more information.

Hope to see all of u there...

Class of 2010

Wat all sections are there for the exam??
and in GD/PI?



Hey Puys let me know the dd should be in favour of whom " ..."

There were 2 papers, an hour each .. the essentials in the paper were eng, quant, gk and some HR n biz questions.. the exam is a total breeze trust me... so chillax and fill up the forms for know...the real test are d GD/PI ....

@ sidzofrenic
cud u pls throw some light on the right kind of "ingredients" that the tiss ppl are looking for in a candidate...... {u cud also take ur personal example}
even after raking my mind a lot.. i simply fail to decipher the code.....

also suggest a suitable strategy for preparation for gd/pi..

thanx in advance......:D

Aaah..if only sucha formula were available in a bottle 😃 hmm... what worked for me was that i was able to i related all the work that i'd done to the specialization i wanted to do (i had a few years of IT experience). They asked me a lot of qns related to my company and the sector in general... it went of pretty smooth ... the interview lasted around 20 mins. I think you need to convince them as to why you'd be the best bet and come across as genuinely interested.

As for as the GD, we all had an understanding before we got in that we'd not make it a fish market .. so i was lucky i had a nice group that ways.. Started the GD .. Spoke when ever I could in the middle .. didnt cut in on any one... spoke to all in group, paid attention when other spoke and also summarized the GD in the end ... so basically tried to do everything right ...
Prepz.. the usual GD preps i.e. current affairs and biz information and pray u get a good topic 😃

Manthan 08' : Corporate Sessions (20th Sept)
Corporate Sessions - TISS HRM & LR
Email: [email protected]

hello guys...
i have already posted the query about the clashing of JMET and Tiss exam..please gives the idea about the last year timing of Tiss. It's very big problem for me( and i think for others also)...because i m going to give only some of the exams and JMET and Tiss one of them.

Can anybody tell us the time of examination for TISS?

Because TISS and JMET exams are both on the same date.

IBSAT AND SNAP ARE ON THE SAME DATE TOO, BUT AT DIFFERENT TIMINGS. HOPE ITS THE SAME FOR TISS AND JMET TOO. :banghead:

I want to know that HRM and LR is the best programme in TISS or we other programmes are equally good.Please throw some light on it...

Hello All!!
This is regarding the day for TISS exam. As far as i have heard from reliable sources, the exam is on the 14th of december 2008, although i'll surely get it re-confirmed and post the details asap...I'm unaware of the timings though....
If the exam date happens to be wrong, by any chances, i beg your pardon....
Till then, Best-luck...
CHEERS!!!
