Selection Procedure for Admission:

The candidates seeking admission into Ph.D. programmes have to appear in the CBT (Computer Based Test). The qualifying marks for General & EWS shall be 50% of total marks and 45% marks for SC/ST/OBC (Noncreamy layer)/PWD categories. It is to be noted that mere qualifying in CBT does not entitle the candidates to be shortlisted for viva voce Examination. Shortlisting of the candidates to be called for viva voce shall be done as per the following criteria:-

(1) For General Category Intake x 5 times
(2) For SC/ST/OBC/EWS Categories Intake x 8 times
(3) For PWD Category 8 times – wherever available

Regarding (1) above, it is further clarified that in case of reserved category scoring equal or more marks than General, such reserved category candidates shall be called for viva-voce as per seat matrix given for (1) above.

Admission of JRF holders to Ph.D. programme

Only those candidates who fulfill the minimum eligibility requirements as prescribed for admission of candidates to Ph.D. programs as mentioned in the respective schools/centers and have qualified for Junior Research Fellowship through CSIR, UGC National Eligibility Test (NET), ICMR, AYUSH, DBT examination are eligible to apply separately in the prescribed form under this category in the respective school/centre/Special Centre wherever separate intake through JRF category is available (the link for this category will be available on the JNU website). Such candidates shall be exempted from appearing in Computer Based Test (CBT). However, candidates shall have to appear for an interview and their selection will depend on their performance in the interview. Candidates appearing in these examinations but awaiting results may also apply under this category. However, such candidates will be interviewed upon submission of valid proof of having qualified for or awarded the JRF certificate at the time of interview. Please note that candidates who have been awarded “Lectureship” (without JRF) in the CSIR/UGC examination and any other fellowship on the basis of Lectureship (without JRF) (Assistant Professorship) are not eligible and will not be interviewed. In case of candidates applying under JRF category, selection will be done on the basis of 100% viva score.

Admission of GATE holders to Ph.D. programme in the School of Engineering

Only those candidates who fulfill the minimum eligibility requirements as prescribed for admission of candidates to the Ph.D. programme as mentioned for the School of Engineering and qualified for the GATE fellowship are eligible to apply separately in the prescribed form under this category (the link for this category will be available on the JNU website). The intake will be as per the availability of the number of fellowships and the requirement of seats in the School. In the case of candidates applying under the GATE category, selection will be done on the basis of 100% viva score.

Admission of Foreign Nationals to Ph.D. programmes

The admission of foreign students for Ph.D. programmes may be considered in compliance with UGC 2016 Regulations regarding a number of research scholars faculty (i.e., Professor/Associate Professor/Assistant Professor) can supervise. Foreign students shall be
offered seats only if seats are left vacant in any discipline after being offered to Indian Candidates who have appeared in JNUEE – 2022-23.
