Admission Procedure :

Admission is generally offered on the basis of a written test and interview. The Institute will invite a limited number of candidates for a written test and interview based on the academic records and/or GATE score. The Institute reserves the right to use its own judgment while determining the candidate’s level of competency based on the available information. The final selection will be based on all of above, viz., academic records, GATE score, written test and interview. The Institute may also exercise the option of offering admission to a few outstanding candidates based on academic record and/or GATE, without calling them for written test and interview.

Master of Science (Physics) program:
The admission to our two year MSc (Physics) program is directly without appearing in the admission test if candidate qualified Joint Admission test to M. Sc. (JAM) conducted by all IITs or LNMIIT admission test.
