The TIFR Nationwide Entrance Examination (GS-2023) for Biology is also called the Joint Graduate Entrance Examination for Biology and Interdisciplinary Life Sciences (JGEEBILS). See https://www.ncbs.res.in/academic/admissions-JGEEBILS. All participating JGEEBILS 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.
The primary route by which TIFR Centres (DBS-Mumbai/NCBS-Bangalore/TIFR-Hyderabad) receive applications for the Graduate Programme in Biology is via the TIFR/JGEEBILS exam. Candidates will be shortlisted for on-campus interviews based on exam marks, CV, scientific write-up, and letters of recommendation. Each TIFR Centre shortlists candidates independently.
TIFR-DBS, TIFR-H, TIFR-NCBS and DBT-InStem will also consider candidates based on their GATE/CSIR/UGC-NET rank. Via this route we will only consider candidates if you are in the top 5 percentile of ranks (e.g. you must have a rank of 100 or better if a total of 2000 candidates appeared for the corresponding exam). In the full application you will be required to state your GATE/CSIR/UGC-NET rank and upload the corresponding Score Card as supporting evidence.
If the above applies to your case, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org We will provide instructions to you on how to submit a full application.
