Students must pass through three stages; written entrance examination, group discussion, and individual interview stages. The marks allocated for the written entrance examination, academic certificates, group discussion, and individual interviews are 100, 20, 30, and 50, respectively. Students who secure pass marks (40%) in the written entrance examination will be invited to group discussions and individual interviews. The result will be published on a merit basis after the completion of the interview.
Written Entrance examination: The written examination will comprise 100 Marks. 50 Marks will be allocated for multiple-choice questions (25) and 50 for subjective answers (5). The curriculum details for the written test are attached in the appendix.
Group Discussion: A group of 4-6 people will discuss a topic provided by the examination committee. A committee of three experts will rate each group member, and the mean score of raters will be assigned to the members. Altogether 30 minutes will be provided for each group, depending upon the number of students in one group (5 minutes per individual).
Individual Interview: Two experts will evaluate each interviewee. Interviewers may ask questions related to the entrance-related curriculum or other psychological domains.
