Students can apply online for hall tickets to participate in the tests. Please follow the appropriate link on this website for completing the application form. Please read the instructions carefully before you start filling up the online application form.

Students from remote areas who do not have access to internet may apply manually. They may send a request for an application form (without DD) along with a self-addressed stamped (Rs. 10) envelope (size 25cm x 17 cm) superscribed “GS-20.....” to the following address:

Admission Section
National Centre for Biological Sciences
Tata Institute of Fundamental Research GKVK,
Bellary Road Bangalore 560 065

The completed application form should be sent along with DD and two passport size photographs (one pasted on the application and one stapled to it).

Students may appear for the written test in multiple subjects if timings do not clash. Please send a separate application (including Demand Draft) for each subject. In case of online applicants, students will have to re-register with a different email id.

Students who wish to apply online and make payment by Demand Draft may send the Demand Draft with their name, reference code and telephone number written behind it. Alternately, students can make online payment by Debit/Credit Card.
