Admissions for GS2017
NCBS, BANGALORE AND DBS, MUMBAI
Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (Deemed University)
The National Centre for Biological Sciences is a centre of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai. The Department of Biological Sciences (DBS) is located at TIFR in Mumbai.
Both units run vibrant graduate programmes and seek excellent students who have completed their primary degrees in basic sciences, engineering or medicine. Graduate students are recruited into the programmes after a written test conducted at several centers nationally, followed by interviews held in Mumbai (for DBS) or submission of a full application and interviews for short-listed applicants at Bangalore (for NCBS).
The TIFR Nationwide Entrance Examination (GS-2017) for Biology is also called the Joint Graduate Entrance Examination for Biology and Interdisciplinary Life Sciences (JGEEBILS). See http://www.ncbs.res.in/JGEEBILS. All participating institutions use the score from this examination, but each institution has its own admission procedure. Students need to apply separately to each institution that uses the JGEEBILS score.
