TIFR Graduate School Admissions (GS-2021)

Tata Institute of Fundamental Research PhD & Int. PhD Admissions (GS-2021)

GS2021: Selection Process for Mathematics

Selection process for admission in 2021 to the various programs in Mathematics at the TIFR centers – namely, the PhD and Integrated PhD programs at TIFR, Mumbai as well as the programs conducted by TIFR CAM, Bengaluru and ICTS, Bengaluru – will be held in two stages.
Stage I. A nation-wide test will be conducted in various centers on March 7, 2021. For the PhD and Integrated PhD programs at the Mumbai Center, this test will comprise the entirety of Stage I of the evaluation process. For more precise details about Stage I of the selection process at other centers (TIFR CAM, Bengaluru, and ICTS, Bengaluru) we refer you to the websites of those centers.
The nation-wide test on March 7 will be an objective test of three hours duration, with 20 multiple choice questions and 20 true/false questions. The score in this test will serve as qualification marks for a student to progress to the second step of the evaluation process. The cut-off marks for a particular program will be decided by the TIFR center handling that program. Additionally, some or all of the centers may consider the score in Stage I (in addition to the score in Stage II) towards making the final selection for the graduate program in 2021.
Stage II. The second stage of the selection process varies according to the program and the center. More details about this stage will be provided at a later date
