The percentage of marks obtained by the candidate in the bachelor’s degree would be calculated based on the practice followed by the university/institution from which the candidate has obtained the degree. In case the candidates are awarded grades/CGPA instead of marks, the conversion of grades/CGPA to percentage of marks would be based on the procedure certified by the university/institution from where they have obtained the bachelor’s degree. In case the university/institution does not have any scheme for converting CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by dividing the candidate’s CGPA by the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying the result with 100.
  • Work experience before completion of graduation will not be considered for eligibility. An experience certificate issued by the current employer dated after the online application submission date is necessary in the case of candidates who have exactly 3 years work experience while applying for the programme. In the case of candidates with more than 3 years of work experience while applying for the programme, the latest experience certificate along with other experience certificates justifying the 3 years will be sufficient. The date of issue of the provisional certificate/original degree certificate/convocation date (whichever is earlier) will be considered as the date of graduation to calculate the work experience after the graduation
