Some changes have also been made in the eligibility criteria. Candidates with ‘promotion/pass’ in place of ‘mark award’ certificates in any of the last two years of their undergraduate program can enter the ‘promotion or pass’ option in the application form. This step was taken due to the Covid-19 situation which has delayed the testing/result process.
However, the basic eligibility is that candidates must have a Bachelor’s degree from a recognized institute.
