In view of the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic situation in the country and health risk involved in travel, IIRS management has decided that this year selection of eligible self-sponsored candidates for admissions in M.Tech., M.Sc. and P. G. Diploma programmes will be based on Academic career and Interview (online) performance, in place of Entrance Test. Towards this, the following mechanism shall be followed:
30% weightage shall be given to the Academic career and 70% weightage to the Interview performance.
For academic career performance, 50% weightage shall be given to the Intermediate (12th class) / Diploma and 50% weightage to the marks obtained in the qualifying degree. The aggregate percentage of marks obtained in all the subjects in 12th class/ Diploma and qualifying degree will be considered. Further, in case the candidate has got two qualifying degrees, the degree with higher marks will be
considered. For the candidates who are in the final semester/year of the qualifying degree, the marks will be considered in the following manner:
In case of candidates with Graduate degree (4 years) as the qualifying degree, cumulative marks obtained by them up to 7th semester (i.e. prefinal semester) or at least 6th semester (in case the 7th semester marksheet/ gradesheet is not awarded by the university / institute);
In case of candidates with Post-Graduate degree as the qualifying degree, cumulative marks obtained by them up to 3rd semester (i.e. pre-final semester) or at least 2nd semester (in case the 3rd semester marksheet/gradesheet is not awarded by the university/institute). In case of universities following yearly system of examination, marks obtained in the first year will be considered.
Furthermore, such appearing candidates, if selected, shall be given only the provisional admission and they shall have to produce the proof of completion of the qualifying degree with minimum eligible marks (i.e. 55%) by the time of joining the course or as per the date decided by IIRS.
