JGEEBILS 2020 on Dec 8: Apply by November 23
Applications have been invited for the Joint Graduate Entrance Examination for Biology and Interdisciplinary Life Sciences (JGEEBILS) to be held on 8th December 2019.
JGEEBILS is intended to serve as a common point for students from any science discipline or engineering to start the process to apply for biology graduate programmes around India.
This is a shared entrance test for graduate programmes in Biology and interdisciplinary life sciences. JGEEBILS is same as the TIFR Nationwide Entrance Examination (GS2020) for Biology. For details, visit http://www.ncbs.res.in/JGEEBILS
All participating institutions use the result from this examination as a part of their admission process. Students need to apply separately to each JGEEBILS participating institution.
Each participating institution has its own admission process and eligibility criteria. Applicants may visit the institutional websites for details of these different entrance processes.
