Ph.D. Admission (Summer 2020)


Notice for PhD Admission to the Department of Physics, Summer 2020

In the extraordinary situation due to Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to conduct the on-campus written test and interview for the Ph.D. admission in Physics for July/August 2020 semester, as in the previous semesters.

The Ph.D. admission list for July/August 2020 will be based on multiple criteria such as the marks/CPI/CGPA in the qualifying degree (M.Sc/B.Tech), the score in the qualifying exam (GATE/NET/JEST etc), quality of the Research Plan, and the content in the reference letters. For those with M.Tech, their marks in M.Sc/B.Tech will be considered. In the case of all those for whom the M.Sc/B.Tech degree is in progress, the score up to the pre-final semester will be considered.

After the last date for submitting the applications is over, a short-list will be made and the candidates in it will be asked (over e-mail) to:

  (i) send a Research Plan (max two pages) within a week and

  (ii) arrange to send two reference letters within a week (if not received already).
